Table of Contents

Powershot is a Hunter-only spell. This card can be obtained from The Grand Tournament packs. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Powershot is a situational removal Spell. Cards like this, Explosive Shot, and Betrayal are generally considered poor outside of the Arena, since they rely on your opponent having multiple minions in play in order to gain strong value. However, this card is never uncastable, unlike some other situational spells, as long as there is one minion in play.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Powershot can be a reasonable card to provide additional removal options in a Hunter deck. However, since the card is so situational, more consistent removal options such as Quick Shot and Hunter's Mark are usually preferred.

3. Arena

In Arena, Powershot is a reasonable card. Since premium removal is hard to come by in Arena, players are often forced to pick up cards like Powershot in order to get sufficient amounts of removal in their draft. Although Powershot is still situational in Arena, the lack of specific removal means that multiple minions will be on the board more often.
