When he was introduced, the legends saw what looked like a line of smoke in the sky of Asgard and a fiery comet. After that, a Valkyrie went toward the comet to stop it.

  • He is now one of the most powerful legends available in Brawlhalla and is considered a very powerful hero due to his deadly combos.

Orion uses two main weapons, Rocket Lance and Spear. 

Rocket Lance 

Rocket Lance is the main weapon of Orion, and it is basically a polearm that has a Rocket Booster at one of its ends. 

  • It is considered one of the best weapons when it comes to mobility and speed, as it allows great movement while dealing damage to enemies. 
  • Most Aerial heroes that use this weapon are considered very deadly as it performs the best when elevated. 
  • Just like Orion, other legends who have roots in Technology and are of Interstellar origin use Rocket Lance as their main weapon. 

Signature Attacks 

There are three signature attacks dealt by Orion whenever he is wielding the Rocket Lance. 

Neutral Attack 

When going for a neutral attack, Orion will put the Rocket Lance on his shoulders and aim it in an upwards direction.

After doing so, there will be a Powerful blast from the exhaust of the Rocket launch, which deals a high amount of damage. 

Side Attack 

During this attack, Orion will use his jet wings to go in the forward direction at high speed and use his Lance to hit enemy targets in front of him.

In case you want to make the attack even more powerful, then you can try running before using the attack, as it will charge the attack more and make the impact more powerful. Furthermore, if you manage to charge it a bit beforehand, then instead of falling on the ground, Orion will keep floating in the air while charging the attack. 

Down Attack 

When performing this attack, Orion will jump in a backward direction and uses the exhaust of his Rocket Lance to shoot a lot of blast shots capable of dealing high amounts of damage to enemies. 


The secondary weapon that Orion will be used to deal damage against enemies is his Spear. Orion Brawlhalla is famous for using and spamming his Spear attacks against enemies, which gives him significant leverage as he is very hard to counter.

Signature Attacks 

Following are the signature attacks of Orion Brawlhalla. He is using a Spear. 

Neutral Attack 

During the neutral attack, Orion will jump high into the air, and we’ll come straight back down.

When doing so, he will hit his Spear into the ground, and anyone nearby will be stunned immediately. If not charged to the full potential, the reach of the stun attack will be low. 

Side Attack 

When performing a side attack using the Spear, Orion will go in the forward direction swiftly using his jet wings.

Doing so will allow him to deal with an energy slash as soon as he reaches the target at the end of his energy boost. 

Down Attack 

When performing the down attack, Orion will spin in his axis with his Spear aimed in an outwards direction.

Doing so will allow him to create a bright blue ring of energy that will deal damage to anyone around and in contact with it. 

Best Combos 

Using simple signature attacks paired with normal attacks, the players will be able to deal with some pretty powerful combos using the hero.

Orion Brawlhalla has the easiest kit to learn, and that makes him one of the best legends to use. Furthermore, other beginners will also be able to use these easy combos to counter any high-level enemy,

Following are the best combos that you can deal with using the Rocket Lance and Spear in Brawlhalla. 

Spear Combos

Below is a list of some of the best combinations of signature moves and special tactics that you can use when wielding a Spear in Brawlhalla. 

Side Signature 

This combo can be executed by using the signature side move.

  • The reason it is considered one of the best combos of Orion is due to the fact that it covers a lot of range.
  • Therefore, you can expect to target a lot of enemies when performing this combination. 
  • Furthermore, as compared to other combo moves, this move has the highest kill potential as it leaves no room for recovery.
  • Your enemies won’t get a chance to dodge your attacks as the move will be covering around half of the arena. 

Down Signature 

By using the combo, you will be able to launch directly at your enemy at high speed dealing maximum damage.

  • The best part about it is that it won’t take too much time to execute the combination. 
  • However, I do recommend not to spam this combination as it can be very unfair to your opponent, and in case you end up missing one, you will be vulnerable to attacks. 

Neutral Signature 

This attack is very much like the ground pound attack. However, it is capable of dealing much more damage. When performing the attack, the first hit will attack the opponent vertically, while the second hit will send them down.

This high-speed attack will cause a lot of damage and can be fatal if performed right. When doing edge guarding, you can use this combination to counter enemies.

  • However, using too much of it will make you quite predictable and give your enemies leverage.
  • I recommend that you don’t use the combo when performing the ground cancel the move.
  • This is because in case you are standing on an edge, you will lose your momentum easily and ultimately lose. 

Best Spear Strings 

Below are some good string combos that you can utilize when playing as Orion and using a Spear as the main weapon. 

Side Light And Down Light  

One of the best combo strings that you can perform using a Spear is definitely a side-and-down light combo. Depending on how fast you perform the combo, you can easily overpower your enemy.

Spear Side Light- Down Light Combo

However, keep in mind that if you delay it too much, there will be a short window where the opponents will be able to dodge and making it more complicated for you to defeat them. 

Down Light And Side Air 

This combo is perfect whenever you are countering a jump attack from the opposite side.

Spear Side Air- Down Light Combo

You can use it to predict the future moves of your enemy and avoid getting much damage yourself. The combo requires a perfect strategy to execute it and is great for dealing extra damage after performing a signature move. 

Side Air And Neutral Light 

This is a very deadly combo if performed the right way.

Spear Side Air- Neutral Light Combo

You can execute the combo whenever you feel like you are in a critical situation. It is a great combo to execute right after a mid-air signature move, as it will further increase the damage dealt

Down Light And Neutral Air 

Just like the previous combo, this combo string is very powerful against enemies whenever making aerial attacks.

Spear Down Light- Neutral Air Combo

Both of these combos are capable of dealing significant damage. You can use any of them whenever you are in a tough situation against your enemies. 

Side Light And Neutral Signature 

 This is another high-damage string combo that requires the perfect strategy to be executed. It is possible only at 0%, and you will be able to overpower your enemy easily by performing this combo. 

Spear Side Light- Neutral Signature Light Combo

Keep in mind that you will only be able to use it in case your opponent has dodged an incoming attack already. You will also be able to use it if the opponent keeps dodging your attack while performing neutral moves

Neutral Air And Ground Cancel Neutral Signature 

This attack works the same as the side light combo and is also a string combination attack.

Spear Neutral Air- Ground Cancel Combo

It can be quite hard to execute, but if practiced enough, it can be a game changer for battles against high-level enemies. You will be able to perform the combo as an aerial attack which makes it great for legends like Orion to use. I highly recommend using the string combo when your enemy is in mid-air. 

Best Rocket Lance Combos

When using Rocket Lance, there are some good combos and special tactics that you can consider to make the best use of the weapon. Below are some deadly combinations and strings for the Rocket Lance used by Orion Brawlhalla. 

Side Signature Attack 

This is considered one of the best moves that the players can execute using the Rocket Lance of Orion. This is because it is capable of dealing a higher amount of damage and potentially killing the opponent in just one move. Brawlhalla Orion

  • Furthermore, it also has a slow speed which can make the combo quite tough to use, especially for beginners.
  • While it is a pretty good kill move, the players will have to use it with a proper strategy.
  • You will have to practice a lot if you want to truly master the combo, and in case you miss it, you will become vulnerable to incoming damage.
  • Many players tend to spam this move which makes it quite predictable, and the players are able to counter it easily.
  • It is important to use it only in critical situations and in the right combinations to make the best out of it. 

Neutral Signature 

Another great attack for the players to use is the neutral signature, as it covers a lot of range.

  • When active, the neutral signature combo will cover the whole area above Orion and deal damage to anyone in its vicinity.
  • It’s better than the side signature move as it is quite fast and does not leave a window for the opponent to dodge the incoming attack.
  • By using the attack, the enemy will be launched diagonally upwards, after which you can finish the move with the light attack.
  • It is great in case you want to do edge guarding as well. Make sure to pair it up with a good light attack to make maximum use of it. 

Rocket Lance String Moves

Following are some good combination strings that the players can use when maneuvering the Rocket Lance. 

Signature Air And Down Light 

One of the best combos is definitely the signature air and downlight attack combo.

This is because the side air attack does not have any follow-up, which can be great for a light attack. Downlight attacks, in combination with side air, can deal heavy amounts of damage and can even finish them off without much effort. 

Side Light And Down Air 

If you are looking to deal high amounts of damage, then there is no combination better than side light and down air.

It can allow the players to deal heavy damage without worrying about incoming damage from enemies. It can also be used in combination with other strings to deal deadly and finishing blows. The best part about it is that it can be performed at any part of the gameplay because the knockback of the light side attack is fixed in Brawlhalla.

Neutral Air And Recovery

This is a kill-confirm combo move that is considered one of the deadliest strings in the Orion kit. Players will be able to utilize the combination mostly in mid-battles.

It is good if the enemy is overpowering you. You can also use it when your enemy jumps in the air. Make sure to plan out a proper strategy before executing the attack so that your enemy won’t be able to dodge it. 

Side Light And Neutral Signature 

Using the side light attacks fixed knockback, you will be able to combine it with a neutral signature to deal with a powerful string combo.

This is also another combination move that confirms a kill, thanks to the knockback it has. You will also be able to use it after a normal combo to finish the enemy in one blow. 

Side Light And Down Light 

This is one of the best combos of light attacks that can deal an excellent amount of damage to opponents.

It is also considered one of the true combos as it features both light attacks. The best part about it is that it is pretty easy to execute as well, and you will not require much practice with it. 

I highly recommend using this combo string as it can deal high amounts of damage in a shorter time span. Furthermore, thanks to the side light’s knock back you can expect to finish your opponent easily with this move.
