When u play barik make different loadouts for turrets, shield, demage and try to counter the enemys build. Try to make uncounterable loadouts, for example do not make a loadout just focusing on turrets cos thats easy to counter with bulldozer card.
Nearly every Barik out there has a healing card in their loadout. It provides him a heavy sustain. Cauterize is an all around counter that also works against him very well in that aspect, even without a healer on enemy team!
