Uncle Sven is a hero appearing in Gigantic.

Official Summary[edit | edit source]

"We've granted Uncle Sven laboratory access four times, and we've exiled him four times. You don't need to be a scientist to figure out that pattern."

—Senior Researcher Ghautiri, House Tesserus

Official Rating Summary[edit | edit source]

Make no mistake here - Sven might have some high damage for one on one combat, but his utility is through the roof, and should reflect his role. Sven is 100% a support class, no two ways about it, and if you fail to understand that, expect to get stomped pretty spectacularly.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Uncle Sven is a slow-moving, mid-health hero who provides a healing component to any team. While he can take reasonable amounts of damage, he cannot deal them effectively, making him more of a support class than a damage class.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

While Sven has decent enough damage and can certainly hold his own on a one on one situation, the fact is that he is 100% a support class hero. His potion abilities have the potential to change fights, sure, and his damage is good enough, but his utility is through the roof. His power to keep the team alive and deal regular damage through status effects like Burn make him a powerhouse in his own right, but he definitely needs support if he gets surrounded.

The way to treat Sven is to think of him as a "mortar". Because his potions come out in an arc, planning around terrain and other features is key to success, and allows you to toss potions that the other team will never, ever see coming.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Sven is a support hero. He can do damage on his own, but without support behind him, he can get wrecked pretty quick.
  • Elastic Ooze grants a great super jump, and allows you to access hidden paths for sneak attacks on Guardians.
  • Chaos Quaff duration increases when you have higher Focus, and sticks enemies to the ground. Use Chaos Quaff on high threat enemies like Tripp to negate them for a while.
  • Use LMB to preface skills for an effective animation cancel, which should speed up your attacks.
  • Sven's skills have a ton of splash damage, meaning you don't need to have great aim as long as you hit the general area.
  • Acid Flask breaks armor, and should be used before your LMB attacks for increased damage.
  • Sven's attacks have a decent arc, allowing for distanced attacks. Take advantage of this.
  • Upgraded Fire Flash has a burning area of effect that can wreck even well trained groups. Use them in corridors or when retreating for huge damage.
  • Elastic Ooze can have huge knockback. Place it in the way of pursuing enemies or assaulting heroes, and you can knock them out of the fight for a few seconds.
