Venom is a Cosmic Champion. Being a Cosmic Champion, he has a Class Bonus against Tech Champions, but is weak to Mystic Champions.


After Peter Parker rejected a sinister alien symbiote, the extra-terrestrial threat sought revenge by bonding with Eddie Brock, ex-photographer for the Daily Bugle and Peter's longtime rival. Fueled by their shared hatred of Spider-Man, Brock and the symbiote now use their immense strength and deadly abilities to gain revenge as the fearful Venom.

Strengths and Weaknesses


  • Venom performs his best when the fight has gone on long enough for him to stack up multiple effects from Genetic Memory and as a result, favors players who can hold back long enough to trigger multiple effects to gain the best results.
  • Venom's ability to copy his opponent's beneficial effects is extremely powerful when used against Champions with predictable effects, such as Ultron, Iron Man, or Deadpool. Copying a powerful Regeneration effect can allow Venom to heal up a massive amount of Health while his Genetic Memory protects him from further harm. Holding back his third Special Attack until just the right moment can allow a clever player to copy these effects for maximum use.
  • Venom is best used in an aggressive manner while the opponent is bleeding. Holding back during these times is not as advised as the large boost to Critical Hit Rate and Critical Damage can allow Venom to put out a large amount of damage from a single combo.


  • Like many Cosmic Champions, Venom is very reliant on his beneficial effects to see him to victory. As a result, he performs poorly against Mystic Champions that can strip away these effects reliably, such as an awakened Doctor Strange or Magik.

Recommended Masteries

  • Enhanced Fury: Each Symbiote Rage effect counts as a Fury effect, and Enhanced Fury will increase all of those effects. Since these effects last the entire fight, gaining the extra damage output and extra Bleed damage can be very punishing.
  • Cruelty: With the increased Critical Hit Rate from Genetic Memory and his Signature Ability, Bloodlust, Venom can land fairly reliable Critical Hits while his enemy is bleeding. Increasing his Critical Damage can turn these moments into devastating attack opportunities.
  • Physical Resistance and Perfect Block: These Masteries, as well as the ones that lead up to them, help increase Venom's overall endurance in order to ensure he lasts longer in the fight and has more of a chance to build up his Genetic Memory triggers.
