Charging Brutes were tripedal Bio Minions that were exclusively found on the planet Verdanth. They attacked primarily by charging at heroes, usually the closest one, but could also charge at the furthest.
Charging Brutes were tough minions to deal with, not only because they apparently had higher health than most minions, but also because they could deal a decent amount of damage when they charged. But at close range, theywould simply use a basic melee attack.
To deal with multiple Brutes, you would want to use an ability such as Maldri's Probability Assault squad ability , so when they hit you or are hit by you, they would be given a disabling debuff. This made them much easier to deal with.
Another possibility was to use Arakna's Phantom Burst unique ability, which at full strength could easily kill any incoming Brutes before they reach you.
Since these Brutes could close-in quite quickly when they charge, an AoE slow such as the Quantum variant ability Time Bubble could be very effective against them, as it severely reduced their speed and made them easier targets.
One could also use Sage's Strangling Briars squad ability to both slow them down and deal damage to them. However, actually using Sage himself against Charging Brutes was ill-advised, because both were Bio-genetic, meaning Sage would automatically be Critically struck by the already high damage of their charge.
- The Charging Brute's lore was unknown due an error in its profile on Darkspore.com, which was displayed only as "???0x7035c5c7!0X8044CA60.DESCRIPTION_KEY???".
- Charging Brutes were somewhat similar to Frogs and Toads, both in appearance and ability. This would indicate that they were descended from amphibious creatures, but that is unknown.
