Main Icon-Helix.png Helix

GoreMagala is a former ARMS player from the United States who mains Helix and Dr. Coyle. At one point, he was sponsored by Set to Destroy X for ARMS, but has since been released from the team. He retired competitively from ARMS for almost two years and returned in March 2020. Until June of 2020, he would occasionally enter major events, but after the finale of SAVE_ARMS 2020 he left the community altogether. In Gore's prime, he was considered to be one of the best players in North America.

Playstyle[edit | edit source]

GoreMagala specializes in a very pressure-heavy style, using mainly double Toasters. He uses Helix' stretch (Tower Mode) for a permanent charge and excels at avoiding enemies' punches. Players consider the knockdown effect of the Toasters, which negates any charge you opponent might have, as well as his precise aiming, to make his punches seem unavoidable.
