Others[edit]

Enigma icon.png
  • Black Hole helps Gyrocopter land his Flak Cannon attacks and Call Down.

  • Telekinesis's stun and throwback helps Gyrocopter take down enemies with Rocket Barrage during the early game.
Warlock icon.png
  • Fatal Bonds synergizes with Flak Cannon and Call Down where affected units will share the damage, hence improving the amount of damage that Gyrocopter can dish out.

Items[edit]
