Brutal Legend Wiki
Eddie unleashes the battle cry guitar solo.
“If your heart's not palpitating now, call a doctor because you are dead!” — Eddie Riggs

Battle Cry is an Ironheade solo that buffs nearby units to deal extra damage. Eddie learns the solo by reading it from the inscription on Lars' sword of the same name.


“Use Battle Cry to motivate your surrounding troops to fight harder with an inspirational solo. All affected friendly units will deal extra damage for a short time.” — Tour Book

When Eddie performs this solo, nearby Ironheade units are buffed to deal increased damage for a while. Affected units are indicated by a golden glow. The solo can be used often due to the short 30 second cooldown period. The solo does not affect Eddie himself, but it will affect the weapons on The Deuce. To tell which unit is affected by this buff, look for the aforementioned glow on the following units (excluding the Thunderhog, which have no visible indication):

  • Headbanger: The chains around their wrists.
  • Razor Girl: Their weapons.
  • Fire Baron: The Molotov Cocktails on their fuel tanks.
  • Metal Beast: The spiked decoration on the end of their tail, Rima's spear, and the spiked bracelets on the beast's legs.
  • Headsplitter: The bolt itself.
  • Roadie: The equipment cases that they are carrying in their hands, and the small of their backs.
  • Bouncer: Their fists, naturally.

Exploited in the Bowels of Hell Amp'd Battle Cry
“Join us, my brothers.” — Eddie Riggs

In single player, this solo is given during the mission "Exploited in the Bowels of Hell". In this mission, the solo is used to inspire the imprisoned Headbangers to join Lars in revolting against Lionwhyte. The Tab Slab for Battle Cry is in fact Lars' sword, and a flaming version of the sword appears in Eddie's right hand when he finishes the solo.
