How Is Twin Needle Used?

This card is mainly used for offense. It’s used to deal additional damage in-between combos for free.

It’s especially useful against Dusks, Plants, and Reptiles, because of their natural disadvantage against Bugs, but it’s primary use is to supplement damage. It could even be used as a filler card to remove debuffs or activate effects.

What Kind of Axies/Teams Use Twin Needle?

Most of the Axies that use this card are damage Bugs and the infamous God Mech. Twin Needle is a great zero-cost tail card because of its damage.

The God Mech is a build that fuses Sneaky Raid, Sugar Rush, Juggling Balls, and Twin Needle in a single Mech Axie. They deal extremely high damage and are commonly paired with double Bugs in order to maximize the damage of Sugar Rush.
