MultiVersus Steven Universe Guide

Steven Universe is one of the hardest fighters to master in MultiVersus. Support fighters are usually rather difficult to use due to their skills in this game that makes them reliant on their partners to deal damage. However, Steven stands out from Velma and Reindog as he has offensive capabilities as well making him arguably the best Support fighter in the game.

At the time of this writing, Steven the only fighter in MultiVersus with the ability to block attacks. His passive special, Unbreakable Bonds, absorbs incoming hits. This is one of Steven’s best assets as it creates a bubble that can absorb hits for up to three times. When the bubble is active, enemies will not be able to pass through you.

This bubble also blocks attacks for his teammates. So long as Steven Universe is using Unbreakable Bonds, your allies will have a protective barrier around them. The tradeoff is that the damage absorption limit is shared between them.

What you need to know about his Steven is that he can stack Rose’s Gaze against enemies. When dealing certain attacks, you’ll see a rose icon on top of enemy players. Once you deal a hit up to ten times, the enemy player gets trapped in a bubble and floats to the top unable to do anything.

How to Play Steven Universe MultiVersus

A lot of Steven Universe MultiVersus abilities give out support for allies. However they need to be positioned correctly in order to take affect. His Shield Wall for example can give his ally armor but the projectile has to pass by them. Steven can also create platforms that the whole team can use.

That being said, Steven’s basic attacks aren’t really all that impressive. He has good offensive capabilities for a support fighter but can’t effectively go toe-to-toe with bruisers if you opt to fight up close. At least without an ally.

How to Unlock Garnet MultiVersus?
