Things are looking even worse, soldier. You’re stranded on Braxis and the UED is still overrun. The Omegaswarm has surrounded you on all sides, and your only shot at survival is to press through the onslaught, make it to the shuttle, and get off this planet. Will you fall victim to the heroic-difficulty swarm, or can you work together and Escape from Braxis?[1]

Escape From Braxis (Heroic) is a Brawl in Heroes of the Storm. It's a modified version of Braxis Holdout and a more difficult version of Escape From Braxis — the first and only fully PvE Brawl in the game. As its normal difficulty version, this Brawl requires games to be won in order to earn the reward, and it's the first Brawl which requires only one game to be completed.


At the beginning of the Brawl, your team will have the following roster of Heroes to choose from:


The following "zerg" heroes can be encountered over the course of the brawl. All heroes have 60% reduced damage.

Other enemies include:

  • Zergling
  • Baneling
  • Locust
  • Roach (has 50 Spell Armor)
  • Hydralisk
  • Cocoon (spawns Locust upon expiration)
  • Ultralisk (has Charge ability: Ultralisk runs forward, stunning and knocking back enemies in its path for 1 second)
  • Nydus Worm
  • Slivan (the final boss of the brawl)

Roaches, Hydralisks and some Zerglings count as minions in terms of game mechanics.

Ultralisks count as Heroic Targets but do not give a takedown credit (like Heroic Pets).
