Brandon "Buggzy" Wilson
|Brandon "Buggzy" Wilson|
Overview[edit | edit source]
Brandon "Buggzy" Wilson is the strongest of all the counselors and he has the energy to stick in the fight! With a high Stamina & Strength stat, we have our heavy-hitter of the crew. Brandon plays multiple sports and maintains a high GPA as well. In a well-rounded group, if Buggzy goes down swinging, it's time for you to run for your life!
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Brandon excels at two things: fighting Jason and running away from him. His maxed strength stat is one of his defining points, making him a very capable brawler. Combined with high stamina, he's a counselor well suited for fight and flight instead of being forced to choose between the two.
Contrary to a commonly held belief in the F13 community, Buggzy is an excellent solo counselor due to his high stamina and speed, the latter being equal to a running Jason. Although his stealth and composure leave much to be desired, it doesn't often matter since Buggzy does not need to sneak around to be successful.
Since he can inflict a considerable amount of damage on Jason quickly, he's a star choice for team comps who plan on killing Jason. As a result, certain high damage weapons (e.g. machete or axe) can be useful if he's fighting Jason with a group. Since Jason cannot grab your teammates safely while fighting multiple people (since one of them could easily stun Jason while he's vulnerable), he'll be forced to take you on in combat, giving you a better shot at demasking him. But this also brings great danger to Brandon, so make sure some of your teammates arm themselves with high stun potential weapons in case something goes wrong.
Due to his unfortunately low luck, weapons with weak durability can break easily; players should search for durable weapons. Firearms are another good choice, but it might be a better option to give them to fellow counselors who aren't very good at fighting. This way, you have more teammates who can protect you if you're in a serious pinch, and Brandon can hold his own in a fight with decent melee weapons.
Never get overconfident; ambush Jason if possible, or simply run to avoid danger altogether (so long as the VIP can escape as well).

Appearance[edit | edit source]
Brandon wears a varsity jacket with the number "26" on his right sleeve; this is likely his given number when playing sports. Since he has a large letter on the front of his jacket complete with images of an American football as well as a basketball, this indicates he played on both the varsity American football team as well as varsity basketball for his high school as a senior (since American high school students normally get their varsity jackets during their final year of high school). Also he is a very muscular guy.
He has additional clothing packs unlocked from purchasing Downloadable Content.
