How Is Gerbil Jump Used?

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

It’s main purpose is to give the user access to the enemy backline and wreak havoc on the Axie unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Gerbil Jump?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage-dealer Beast Axies. They jump in the backline and take out unsuspecting enemies, bypassing the frontline.

There are also non-Beast Axies that use this card to have target prioritization.

  • high-damage Beast cards paired with Gerbil Jump creates a Beast Axie that can potentially take out backline Axies with tons of damage
