|Skill Trees||Brawler, Tank, Blaster|
Brick, simply, is a massive human being that likes to use his fists to deal damage as opposed to using guns. On his fists Brick wears bolts and screws, as well as two rings that say "1" and "2". When not using his fists, Brick specializes in using explosive weapons. Brick's Active Ability is to go into a Berserk Mode, which makes him very powerful using melee. Brick's reason for traveling to Pandora is to find his sister.
As stated, Brick is the type of character that fights up close. He has higher health then the other characters, allowing this, and specializes in shotguns and explosives. The only downside to this is the fact that Brick isn't very accurate when it comes to long range shooting. Brick is best suited to players who like to run in, all guns blazing Rambo style - unlike the subtler Hunter and Siren classes.
 Action Skill
Brick's Active Ability is known as Berserk Mode. When you use this, the screen will turn red, Brick will holster his weapon, and he will attack using just his fists. Also while in this mode, Brick will gain resistance to all damage and his health will regenerate as he beats enemies down. You will be able to control Brick's fists - using the 'aim' button will trigger a strong (but slower) left hook - using the 'shoot' button will trigger a fast (but weaker) right jab.
As Brick levels up, you will be able to gain points which you can use to improve his action skill. Brick has three skill trees that you can upgrade entitled Brawler, Tank, and Blaster.
 Play Styles
The branches of Brick's skill tree are Brawler, Tank, and Blaster.
The Brawler branch focuses on beefing up his melee attacks and generally enhancing the utility and functionality of his Berserk mode. This branch can reduce the cooldown of Berserk to 30 seconds, and increase the duration by a large amount, letting you spend a large amount of time in Berserk mode very often, while outputting massive damage.
The Tank branch features skills that greatly enhance Brick's survivability. This branch gives Brick enormous health and shield boosts on the two very first skills of the tree, making it almost essential for any build or playstyle. The Tank branch works very well when combined with the Brawler branch, as the extra survivability is almost necessary when getting in close range with berserk.
The Blaster tree focuses on efficiency with explosive weapons -- specifically rocket launchers, as well as small efficiency boosts with all weapons in general. This branch will let Brick fire his weapons more quickly, reload faster, and dominate waves of enemies with continuous fire - especially when combining the "Revenge" and "Master Blaster" skills. The downside to this tree is that it requires the player to commit a lot of points to maximize it's potential, because while the skills work well together, they don't have a very big impact if you decide to only take a few of them. Because of this, it makes it difficult to combine the Blaster branch with the others effectively.
