Abilities and Stats
In the Story

Crossbones is a Skill Champion. Being a Skill Champion, he has a Class Bonus against Science Champion, but is weak to Mutant Champions.


Once a high level agent at S.H.I.E.L.D., Brock Rumlow revealed his true colors as an enforcer for HYDRA when the evil agency threatened to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. from within. Since the climatic battle, the dangerous mercenary now calling himself Crossbones has hidden underground, striking from the shadows and selling his skills to the highest bidder.


Note: This section is incomplete. If you have the stats for Crossbones at Rank 1 Level 1, or the stats for his Signature Ability at Level 1, 8, or 20, please add them below. The Marvel Contest of Champions Wikia appreciates.

  • The Potency of Crossbones' Fury effects are increased by up to 20% based on his Critical Damage. As his Critical Damage climbs, his Fury effects become more powerful.
  • For each Fury effect active, Crossbones overpowers his opponent, decreasing their Defensive Ability Accuracy by X% per Fury.

  • While Crossbones is in Overrun, his Offensive Power Gain increases by 40% and his Defensive Power Gain decreases by the same amount.

Special 3: Eye for an Eye - It's time to make them pay for what they've done.

  • This attack instantly refreshes the cooldown timer on Overrun.

Also has different special when vs Howard the duck.

Strengths and Weaknesses



  • In addition to the class disadvantage against Magneto and Magneto (House of X), Crossbones is also affected by Magnetism and, as a result, will have a much harder time triggering his much-needed Fury effects.[1]
  • Hulkbuster and Doctor Strange can regularly counter Crossbones' Fury effects, with Hulkbuster gaining Armor Up each time Crossbones gains Fury, and Doctor Strange's Counterspell removing the effects.[1]

Recommended Masteries

  • Precision and Cruelty: As Crossbones' powerful Fury effects are tied to his high Critical Rate and his Critical Damage, snapping up these two Masteries can allow him to trigger his Fury more often, and ensure they're even more powerful.[1]
  • Extended Fury and Enhanced Fury: Crossbones has some of the most powerful Fury effects in the entire Contest. Grabbing these two Masteries will keep those effects around longer and give them more impact.[1]


  • Crossbones is a bit of an amalgamation of the film version of the character and the comic version of the character: he retains his appearance from the film, although his height is the same as in the comics.[2]
