Garnet is a slower MultiVersus character, and while they compensate by hitting like a truck and soaking up damage, it's hard to master their moves and combos. The game is all about mastering your chosen character, which means it's vital to learn every mechanic and intricacy you can.

We'll cover all you need to know about Garnet below, so you can come out victorious in your games.

Garnet combos

As a Bruiser with several slow-moving attacks, Garnet doesn’t thrive at comboing opponents in general. Instead, her general game plan will involve picking the right spots to rack up large amounts of damage over time, before finishing her opponents off with a strong horizontal move.

Nevertheless, Garnet does have a handful of combo options at her disposal. If she can connect her grounded side-normal combo into an up-normal finisher, she can then try to string together a couple of up-airs or up-specials.

Her down-air can similarly combo into up-air, although its slow start-up and particular hitbox can make it a bit difficult to land on a moving opponent.

Perk Effect
Electric Groove Applying shocked to enemies has a chance to grant Garnet stacks of rhythm.

Though she does naturally gain access to a general Defense perk in MultiVersus, Garnet benefits more from running two Utility perks. With the Doubles-specific The Purest of Motivations, she and her ally will do 15% more damage for 10 seconds after an ally gets knocked out.

Meanwhile, …in a Single Bound! gives Garnet a 10% buff to her jump speed. Alongside these, Garnet enjoys using the Offense perk Percussive Punch Power. This perk grants a 5% damage boost to attacks that deal horizontal knockback, a fitting power-up for a Horizontal fighter like Garnet.
