MultiVersus LeBron James Guide - All Perks, Moves, Specials And More
Some of the fighters in MultiVersus have been labeled as experimental, and one of them is LeBron James, a brawler with tons of damage potential paired with flashy moves. You've likely already seen players picking him in matches because of his unique and effective skill set.

Like the Iron Giant, many of LeBron James' Signature Perks and Special Attacks are distinctive as an experimental fighter. The iconic NBA player can do a ton of chains with his basketball. But he can also use that same ball to assist his team in several ways. All of the Perks and Attacks work to make LeBron fit the mold of the Space Jam character.

Each character in MultiVersus has a set of Perks that are unlocked by ranking up. Based on their stats, they are typically split into Utility, Offense, and Defense categories. All normal Perks can eventually be trained for any character, regardless of the class, and they act as passive bonuses.

On the other hand, Signature Perks on fighters like LeBron James are reserved for that option alone. There are only two or three per character, and they can alter the way an attack operates. All of the character-specific Perks for LeBron are listed below.

Utility Perks

  • Gravity Manipulation - Your team receives 10% increased fast fall speed.
  • I Dodge You Dodge We Dodge - Your team receives a 10% ability cooldown refund after dodging an attack.
  • Leg Day Champ - Your team receives 10% increased jump height.

Offensive Perks

  • Make It Rain, Dog! - Your team receives 20% increased projectile speed.

Defensive Perks

  • Back to Back - Your team receives 6% reduced damage when near an ally.

Signature Perks

  • Hot Hands - If LeBron completes a no-look pass to his ally, the basketball is ignited. If LeBron dunks an ignited basketball, he ignites all damaged enemies and creates a firewall on the ground. 
  • For Three! - LeBron and his allies that hit enemies with a basketball from far away cause the basketball to explode, dealing damage and knockback to all nearby enemies.
  • Keep Possession - When LeBron or his allies receive a pass, they gain gray health for a few seconds.

Regardless of your Perk choices, these are just the start to mastering LeBron James in MultiVersus. The most important thing is to learn his attacks and special moves. Doing this will help you reach the next level and start winning most of your matches.
