Captain America (Infinity War) is a Science Champion. Being a Science Champion, he has a Class Bonus against Mystic Champions, but is weak to Skill Champions.


Since opposing the Sokovia Accords, the super-soldier has lost his shield and been forced underground. But with the help of friends new and old, he’s managed to re-equip and remain under the radar; all the while continuing to do what he believes is right — saving the world one clandestine mission at a time.

Kinetic Potential – Passive

  • Captain America’s vibranium vambraces can store up to 5 Kinetic Potential charges. He will not generate any new Kinetic Potential charges while at this limit.
  • 15% Chance when Struck to gain 1 Kinetic Potential.
  • 50% Chance when Blocking to gain +1 Kinetic Potential. This chance increases to 100% on a Well Timed Block.
  • 100% Chance to gain +1 Kinetic Potential when Stunned.
  • Kinetic Potential falls off over time, falling off faster the longer its been since it last increased.

Developer Note: Captain America gains the Kinetic Potential when Stunned after the Stun applies, so he doesn’t auto shrug off all Stuns when combined with his Signature Ability.

Kinetically Charged – Passive

  • As long as Captain America has at least 1 Kinetic Potential, he’s is considered to be Kinetically Charged, and gains the following bonuses as Passive effects:
  • +X Attack
  • +X Physical Resist
  • +X Energy Resist
  • +30% chance to cause opponent’s attacks to Glance. Glancing Hits cannot be Critical, deal 50% reduced damage, and suffer -100% Offensive Ability Accuracy. This chance increases by 100% against Mystic Champions.
  • 100% chance to Nullify Unstoppable Buffs on hit.

Developer Note: These abilities don’t stack, they just turn on as long as Captain America has at least 1 Kinetic Potential charge.

Heavy Attack – Passive

  • Beginning to charge a Heavy Attack grants a Passive Fury granting +X Attack per Kinetic Potential, lasting for 5 seconds.

Developer Note: While this Fury effect is quite short, it triggers as soon as you enter the Heavy Attack animation which means you can cancel the animation into a Special Attack before you land a hit. With good timing, this effectively doubles the attack bonus granted by the Special 2 Attack.

Special Attacks

  • After any Special Attack, Captain America consumes all Kinetic Potential.

Signature Ability


  • An excellent leader, Captain America learns from his teammates gaining a unique effect, while Kinetically Charged, for each class represented on his team, excluding himself.

Leadership - Passive

  • An excellent leader, Captain America learns from his teammates gaining a unique effect, while Kinetically Charged, for each class represented on his team, excluding himself.
    • Mutant: X% chance on triggering a Special Attack to gain +1 Kinetic Potential.
    • Skill: X% chance whenever a Debuff is gained, consume 1 Kinetic Potential to Purify it.
    • Science: X% chance on a Well-Timed Block to place a 10% Weakness Debuff of the Opponent for 10 seconds.
    • Mystic: X% chance to gain 1 Kinetic Potential each time a Buff Expires or is Nullified on the Opponent.
    • Cosmic: X% chance on a Well Timed Block to place an Armor Break Debuff on the Opponent, reducing their Armor by X for 10 seconds.
    • Tech: X% chance on a Well Timed Block to place a 25% Petrify Debuff on the Opponent for 10 seconds.

Special Attacks

Special 1: My Ally’s Claws – Cap shows his new vibranium hardware is good for offence as well as defence.

  • 100% chance to inflict Bleed, dealing X Direct Damage over 3.5 seconds.
  • Reduces Opponent’s Defensive Ability Accuracy by 100% if Kinetically Charged.

Developer Note: This Ability Accuracy Reduction applies only to the hits of this Special Attack. Try and use it to push the opponent over specific ability triggers, like Magik’s Limbo.

Special 2: Kinetic Discharge – Smashing together his vambraces Cap unleashes a wave of kinetic energy.

  • 100% chance to Stun for 1 second.
  • Each Kinetic Potential charge grants +1250 Attack and +0.5 second(s) Stun Duration.

Special 3: Lead from the Front – Cap leads by example, sending his enemy crashing to the mat!

  • If Kinetically Charged gain +X Attack for each different Class on Cap’s team, not including himself, up to 2 Classes.
  • Gain 1 Non-Consumable Kinetic Potential charge which lasts 30 seconds.

Developer Note: This allows Cap to have an effective 6 Kinetic Potential charges.

Synergy Bonuses

Synergy Partner(s) Effect(s)
Tech Breakthrough Vision portrait.pngVision (Age of Ultron) portrait.pngIron Man portrait.png Tech Champions: Drain 100% of the Opponent’s Max Power after the Opponent uses a Special Attack.
Unique Synergy: Does not stack with duplicate synergies.
Developer Note: The key word here is ‘After’. Basically this drains any left over power from the Opponent after they use a Special Attack. Really good against any node/ability that reduces the cost of Specials Attacks though *cough* Sentinel *cough*.
Mutant Evolution Wolverine portrait.pngStorm portrait.pngBeast portrait.png Mutant Champions: Gain a permanent Passive +20% Prowess.
Unique Synergy: Does not stack with duplicate synergies.
Developer Note: This does count as an extra Prowess for Bishop, and no he doesn’t consume it when using a Special Attack.
Skill Training Hawkeye portrait.pngBlack Widow portrait.pngThor (Ragnarok) portrait.png Skill Champions: Gain +250 Critical Rating on Basic Attacks.
Unique Synergy: Does not stack with duplicate synergies.
Science Experiment Captain America portrait.pngHulk portrait.pngHulk (Ragnarok) portrait.png Science Champions: Place a Passive Weakness on the Opponent reducing their Attack by 50% except while being struck by them.
Unique Synergy: Does not stack with duplicate synergies.
Developer Note: Slightly tricky wording. Basically this weakness will apply to anything that scales with your opponent’s attack, that doesn’t trigger when they’re landing a hit. So things like Dormammu’s Degeneration, Iceman’s Coldsnap, Mephisto’s Incinerate Aura, Void’s Direct Debuff Damage, etc.
Mystic Craft Scarlet Witch (Classic) portrait.pngThor (Jane Foster) portrait.pngDoctor Strange portrait.png Mystic Champions: Deal 30% of their Attack as Direct Damage to their Opponent when Nullifying one of their Buffs.
Unique Synergy: Does not stack with duplicate synergies.
Cosmic Power Captain Marvel (Classic) portrait.pngThor portrait.pngGamora portrait.png Cosmic Champions: Increase their Buff Duration by +25%.
Unique Synergy: Does not stack with duplicate synergies.
Developer Note: Stacks with Black Bolt’s Cosmic Supremacy Synergy… just sayin’
Incoming Synergy Partner(s) Effect(s)
Enemies Cull Obsidian portrait.png All: +155 Critical Rating
Familiar Faces Human Torch portrait.png Human Torch: If the last hit of Special Attack 2 strikes a Block, Human Torch will avoid incoming attacks for 0.75 seconds, causing them to Miss.
Captain America (Infinity War): Increase the duration of Bleed Debuffs on the Opponent by 1 second(s).
Unique Synergy: Does not stack with duplicate synergies.
Familiar Insight Iron Man (Infinity War) portrait.png Iron Man (Infinity War): Blocking reduces 10% more damage.
Captain America: Weakness, Fatigue, Bleed, and Petrify Debuffs last 15% longer.
Unique Synergy: Does not stack with duplicate synergies.
Tactical Training Night Thrasher portrait.png Captain America (Infinity War): Well Timed Blocks have a 50% chance to apply a Disorient Debuff for 3 seconds.
Unique Synergy: Does not stack with duplicate synergies.

Strengths and Weaknesses


  • Dormammu
    • Dormammu is a good matchup for Cap, who doesn’t trigger any Buffs naturally, and his Science Experiment Synergy will reduce the damage he takes from Dormammu’s Degeneration if it does trigger.
  • Magik
    • Cap’s Petrify Debuffs will help counter both Limbo and Mystic Dispersion. Combine this with his Special 1 Attack’s Ability Accuracy reduction to help prevent Limbo from even triggering in the first place.
  • Juggernaut
    • As long as Cap can remain Kinetically Charged, he will remove Juggernaut’s unstoppable effects simple by attacking into him.


  • Crossbones
    • Crossbones’ ability to convert Debuffs into Fury effects, as well as reduce Defensive Ability Accuracy, makes him well equipped to deal with Cap’s Debuffs, reduce the chance of him gaining Kinetic Potential, and triggering his Glance.
  • Taskmaster
    • Taskmaster’s ability to resist Debuffs, as well as his Concussions and bonus damage based on Debuffs let him bypass many of Cap’s abilities.
  • Rogue
    • Rogue’s ability to quickly shrug off Debuffs keeps Captain America from being able to build up multiple stacks of them, and her ability to control when she steals Health or Power let’s her avoid the reduction of Cap’s Petrifies.

Recommended Masteries

  • Inequity
    • With his Signature Ability and the right teammates, Cap is capable of putting a lot of Debuffs on his opponent, allowing him to make great use of this mastery.
  • Despair
    • Combining Despair with his natural ability to place Petrify Debuffs on his opponent can make for a powerful combination.
  • Petrify
    • Cap can do a lot of Stunning, both through Well Timed Blocks, and through his Special 2 Attack. This let’s Cap keep the Petrify effect active for much of the fight.
