Skylords Reborn

Boom Brothers is a Tier 4 (Tokenslot Orb Neutral.pngTokenslot Orb Neutral.pngTokenslot Orb Neutral.pngTokenslot Orb Fire.png) Icon Unit.pngUnit of the Fire faction. This uncommon card was released with the Twilight Edition and has no affinity variants, nor a promo version.

This card has been changed already, compared to its original appearance in BattleForge.

BOOM Brothers are a surprisingly powerful unit for their price, capable of unleashing a devastating blast that can eradicate many foes.



The little Goblin was furious. “Partok, you blundering muscle-mountain! What were you thinking of!?” He wiped the slime from his face and walloped the Ogre as hard as he could with his torch. “When I say Fire Away, you stand still. You do not charge ahead. You do not sit down. And you certainly do not bend over to pick up a piece of Elf!”

The Ogre did not answer. After years of service in the Boom Squad, he was deaf as a stone. But his Goblin targeteer knew nothing of this, as he himself was deaf too.

Card Info

Power Cost: 50 Energy
Boom Brothers BOOM Ability Icon.png
Card Icon Active.png Active: Activate to fire a flaming cannon ball that deals 2150 / 2200 / 2300 / 2400 damage to enemies in a cone-shaped area, up to 2660 / 2760 / 2960 / 3200 in total. Affects ground targets only. Knocks back all unit sizes. Reusable every 30 seconds.

In some ways, BOOM can be seen as a more powerful, ground-only version of Emberstrike Card Icon.png Emberstrike's Emberstrike Fire Lance Ability Icon.png Fire Lance. This mighty blast can dish out a significant level of damage, and includes knockback against any creature size, including XLs!

Notes & Strategies

Boom Brothers are very powerful but suffer from low life points for the tier. These heavy ordinance units are designed to unleash a devastating burst of damage in vast quantities before the enemy can engage them.

Because BOOM can knock away XL creatures, enough of them can effectively stun-lock creatures. However, this ability is ground-only, making flying units a death sentence.

Campaign PvE

Boom Brothers are incredibly effective at dispatching extra-large creatures, making them a strong pick against many late-game foes. However, any flying creature can kill them easily.

Random PvE

Boom Brothers are powerful but lack the hitpoints necessary to survive the late-game fights. Their ability also does not contribute strongly to the immense firepower of the XL train.


This card is not used in PVP.
