MacBrover is a playable character in the run and gun platform game Broforce. He was added in the game at the release of the Broforce Brototype.

Special command: Turkey Bomb

  • Duration: The bomb can exist for a maximum of 10 seconds.
  • Only one turkey Bomb can exist on the screen at the same time and should the player attempt to toss a second turkey bomb, it will blow up the first one instead.

  • In the Festive Season update, his Turkey Bomb sprite is changed for an Explosive Present.
  • A parody of MacGyver called McGruber portrayed by Will Forte also exists, but this bro seems to be based on the original character.
  • According to his interview with PAYDAY TeamEvil, MacBrover is Ruan's favorite bro.
  • If Broforce is worshipped as national heroes at the end of the campaign, MacBrover can be seen wtiring his signature on a Turkey Bomb.
  • He appears during the Hell Stage of the Introductory Video, and throws a Turkey Bomb at the Undead Mooks, which caused them to be lured onto it and gets blown up as a result.
    • Despite undead mooks are always armed in-game, the ones seen here are unarmed.
  • The achievement "The Last Supper" can be earned if a player kills 10 or more terrorists at once using a single Turkey Bomb.
