If you’ve played through Marvel’s Avengers (or just have a lick of common sense), you probably know Captain America isn’t really dead. While we won’t spoil what happens to Steve Rogers, we’re here to help players with a Marvel’s Avengers game Captain America build called The Infinite Brooklyn Brawler!
Gamer TrixRidiculous crafted a Captain America build that lets you deal insane amounts of damage by constantly triggering Cap’s “Brooklyn Brawler” ultimate heroic!
Marvel’s Avengers Game Captain America build – The Infinite Brooklyn Brawler:
Ultimate Heroic tree –
CQC Specialist – While Brooklyn Brawler is active, you can perform takedowns on Critically Wounded enemies.
Note: This skill is absolutely insane, and will allow you to perform takedowns on any enemy at low health (<40% I think, but might me more like <30%, hard to tell) regardless of stun bar. You will be performing takedowns nonstop, sometimes up to three times back to back on the same enemy. Also important to note, that you will be the only one on the team who can do takedowns this way, so you won’t be fighting with your teammates over takedowns, which is important for the rest of the build.
Adrenaline Rush– Takedowns extend Brooklyn Brawler by three seconds.
Note: An important note here, is that during the takedown, the timer is paused, so it doesnt simply replace the time spend on the takedown but rather adds to it. If you can continuously do takedowns on enemies with low health, you can keep adding to the duration. I’ve gotten it as high as a minute during tough fights.
Takedown Specialization – Heroic Takedown Mastery – Takedowns spawn a heroic orb.
Note: Very Straightforward, every hero has this. Get a heroic orb every takedown, which, combined with our ability to spam takedowns will drastically reduce all our cooldowns.
With these three skills alone, you will be able to extend your Ultimate out to multiple minutes, while also collecting orbs cooling down your Rally Cry / Steamroller as well as your Ult itself.
If and when your Ultimate eventually runs out, or when you enter a new area, you should have collected enough orbs to have it off cooldown, therefore keeping it up indefinitely.
Added info: That’s really it. Other useful skills would just be anything that spawns heroic orbs, but are just gravy to the primary strategy. For equipment, the campaign artifact with +4 to damage buffs works with Brooklyn Brawler, and there is also a Cap chest piece from his iconic missions that gives +2 to Brooklyn Brawler. Otherwise, look for light attack finisher perks since Brooklyn Brawler doesn’t use heavy attacks. Shock and Pym Damage are best. Avoid Cryo, Plasma, and Cosmic as lifesteal and enemy staggers/slows aren’t necessary. Gear that have % chance to spawn orbs on takedowns also get a lot of use here.
I will update when I have a more thorough min/max, but I just wanted to share my thoughts right now. I hope folks find this helpful, definitely give this build a try.
To make this even more busted. Use captain’s call (R2 + Triangle) during BB to auto block all non-reds. We assume it’s a glitch.

Currently, this is the build I use for my Captain America, and it is INSANE. You can go one-on-one with any enemy and just pummel them with shield slams from the Brooklyn Brawler. Add in the each takedown gives you back some health (which you can even upgrade to give you more after each takedown), and well, you won’t run out of health anytime soon.
