LoL: Player Shows Off Unfortunate Briar Death At The Hands Of Samira

Briar is the newest champion to be added to League of Legends but it seems like her non-existant base health regen could be an issue... if she can get killed by another champion's taunt.

The League of Legends devs sometimes add fun and unique interactions to the game. Briar, who is from Noxus and a product of some sketchy experiments from the Black Rose, has pretty funny ones with multiple Noxian champions like Sion and Samira.

Well, Samira has a pretty interesting taunt in the game and this taunt can also be quite deadly... literally and it's especially deadly for a champion like Briar who has no innate health regen. So, what exactly have League players done that is so dangerous for the newest LoL champion?

LoL Player Shows Off Insane 1-vs-1 Duel Between Samira And Briar

Of course, with a new champion on the PBE, players are going to be trying some fun mechanics to see just how far they can take the champion. Briar, is interesting because she has 0 health regen in her kit, which is why League of Legends content creator Vandiril took to PBE to test out something very important.

He let Briar get extremely low, reaching 2 HP before flashing away from the minions. Then with 2 HP left he entered the duel with Samira, facing her head on.

Now, what many might not know is that Samira has a special taunt which gives her money, as well as deals 1 HP damage. Samira will flip her coin, then throw it at her opponent. One hit will give her 1 Gold and deal 1 damage.

Well, with Briar having no health regen, she can easily stand there and take the hits only to die. RIP.

With just 2 HP left, it took Samira 2 taunts to kill Briar. While this clearly isn't a very efficient way of killing someone, it sure is stylish. So, will we see some Briar deaths in this fashion in our solo queue games soon?
