Zapp Slywick is a tier 6 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Zapp Slywick is best placed on the very left of your board in order to attack first. It is useful to tech this minion into your board to snipe your opponent's key assets; however, it is difficult to buff this minion, so pay attention to the boards of your opponents and note key minions before you buy this. Frequent targets include Baron Rivendare, Junkbot, Soul Juggler, and Mama Bear.

Your opponent may exploit this minion's behavior to guarantee that their Goldrinn, the Great Wolf will die first, which could be disastrous. If your opponent has adapted to this minion being present in your lineup, you should sell it for larger minions.

A very effective counter to Zapp is a single Maexxna, which will handily take care of Zapp and survive. An unbuffed Mechano-Egg can also be used to redirect a hit.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
Who are you calling short?

Lore[edit | edit source]

Zapp is unique to Hearthstone.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Zapp Slywick's summon quote is possibly a reference to the character Edward Elric from the manga series Fullmetal Alchemist. Edward is often made fun of for his height or mistaken as being the younger of the two brothers because of it, and often responds with a similar quote such as, "Who're you calling short/small/little/pipsqueak?!"
