How Is Branch Charge Used?

This card is used mainly to burst down tankier Axies. Because it’s a Beast card, it deals additional damage against the tank classes, Plant, Reptile, and Dusk.

It’s also useful against Terminator Reptiles because of its high damage and crit chance when paired with a Plant card.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Branch Charge?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer Beast Axies. I’ve also seen a few builds that put it on Aqua Axies to supplement their lack of damage against the tanks.

Using a Plant as a tank also enables players to make use of the additional crit chance more effectively.

Pros and Cons of the Branch Charge Card


  • deals decent damage and gives good shields
  • gains additional crit chances when comboed/chained with a Plant card


  • deals relatively low damage when compared to other Beast cards (Sinister Strike)
