"You can't even comprehend the sheer brilliance of my invention!" - Barbara

Growing up, Barbara always dreamt of becoming an engineer, but her family pressured her into medical school.

Her parents both passed away shortly after - and without anyone to interfere, she focused on her inventions for the next 15 years.

Right on the cusp of completion, Barbara's funding was cut, leaving her robot incomplete. Truthfully, she longs for the recognition of others - even the tiniest of praise has her beaming.

These days, she's out of touch and lacks a strong sense of reality.

Locking yourself away for a decade and a half will tend to do that to you...


Retrofit (Passive)

Barbara's Sentry Gun gains 6.0% AP and 5.0% defense depending on her level. Whenever a Sentry Gun is hit by Free-Electron Laser, or Magnetic Cyclone or Photon Storm are activated, its attack speed is increased by 15/20/25% up to 3 stacks.

BT Sentry Gun Mk.II (Q)


Icon Stats Ability Description
Barbara Q.png
Barbara Q2.png

Skill damage
15/30/45/60/75 (+15% AP) /
15 (+Barbara's level * 7.5% AP)
Skill duration
Turret Base Attack Range: 4.2m
Casting time
60/70/80/90/100 SP

Barbara installs a Sentry Gun with 150 (+Barbara's Max HP 18/21/24/27/30%) HP in a targeted location, dealing damage to enemies hit. The Sentry Gun remains for a few seconds, dealing damage to enemies hit. When a new Sentry Gun is set, the old one is dismantled. If Barbara is far from the Sentry Gun, she collects it, reducing the cooldown by 30%. Sentry Gun HP is proportional to Barbara's maximum HP.

Short Circuit: Barbara installs a sentry gun and teleports over its location. Already existing sentry gun will be destroyed, dealing damage. After Barbara teleports, she deals damage to enemies nearby and slows them.

  • Re-casting the skill if it is still active will collect the sentry gun.

Free-Electron Laser (W)

Skillshot Attack

Icon Stats Ability Description
Barbara W.png

Skill damage
30/55/80/105/130(+25% AP)
F.E.L: 30/55/80/105/130(+40% Sentry Gun AP)
Skill duration
Casting time
50/60/70/80/90 SP

Barbara fires a two-part Free-Electron Laser, dealing damage per laser to each enemy hit. Enemies hit are slowed for 1.5 seconds. Hitting an enemy with both parts of the laser deals 130% more damage and reduces the cooldown of Overclock by 1 second. Sentry Guns are enhanced when hit by the laser, causing the sentry to use Free-Electron Laser, dealing damage to enemies hit.

Photon Resonance: If you use Photon Resonance for a few seconds, the damage of Free-Electron Laser and Sentry Gun increases, SP cost is removed and its cooldown is reduced by 95%. Sentry gun normal attacks are changed to Free-Electron Lasers during Photon Resonance.
Fixed Cooldown: 0.35/0.25/0.15s

Magnetic Cyclone (E)

Shield/AOE Attack

Icon Stats Ability Description
Barbara E.png

Skill duration
3.5m, radius: 2m
Casting time
80/90/100/110/120 SP

Barbara creates a Magnetic Cyclone with her sentry gun that lasts up to 4 seconds, dealing true damage every 0.5 seconds to enemies in range and increasing her movement speed by 20%. Reactivating the skill or waiting until max duration causes the Magnetic Cyclone to explode, dealing damage to enemies in range and granting her a shield based on 20% damage dealt by Magnetic Cyclone, up to a maximum of 50% HP. At the same time, enemies taking damage from it are slowed for 0.6 seconds.

Particle Storm: Magnetic Cyclone gets bigger over time. Reactivating the skill or waiting until max duration deals damage to enemies in range and slows them by 30/40/50/60/70% for a 1 second. Skill duration increased to 6s.
