Backstory[ | ]

Although Snork Gunk is considered one of the better conchballers in Scargi Space he never reached first league with his team, the Pearl Sluggers. He always criticized the sport had become too slow. Blaming the slugs at management for trying to slow the pace of the game, games that were already drawn out over the span of 14 Earth months. "With an average of only one or two goals a game, you have more fun watching paint dry" he complained. After many times of being disqualified for scoring too quickly, the team benched him for good.

Fed up with his failed carrer in sports he decided to join the Scargi military police hoping for some more action by tracking and hunting down enemies of the empire. After a good run of swift catches, he was assigned on a mission to hunt down the fugitive Rocket's Renegades. Realizing the Renegades had joined the ranks of the Awesomenauts, a team of 'big league' mercenaries, he applied for the transfer of a lifetime...

Quotes[ | ]

Theme song lyrics[ | ]

Intro (x2)

Snork is the man

He’s swiffer than a fan

Snork is the slug

He’s whipping every thug

Verse 1

Snork Gunk is the man

Swiffer than a rusted fan

These Pearl Sluggers don’t love him man

Cuz they can't see me like a sudden glance

Conchball used to bring him fame

But sluggishness was not his game

His speedy moves just got him banned

So now he's got a different plan

Once a sportsman, now a cop

He’s reaching for a juicy crop

Who knew he could move with a boost to top

These losers, you think you're cool, STOP


Turn it up now and don’t go slow

Enjoy and watch the snork show, the snork show

He’s as fast as a tornado

Enjoy and watch the snork show, in stereo

And if you hear any noise

You better run cause there is no

time to poise

You’ll have no choice

Cause it’s the snork show, the snork show, lets you feel the

flow, he’s such a pro, you see him glow even incognito!

Intro 2

Snork Gunk is the man

Steadfast like a headstrong clam

Snork Gunk is the slug

Squashing bad guys like a bug

Verse 2

Once inmates of the Scargi jug

For salting food of Pierre the slug

A band of outlaws flees the scene

Cause they don’t wanna act on his movie screen

But Rocket Renegades they have fear

Cause Snork's swift justice rushes near

Not flinching for a foul onslaught

Snork infiltrates... the Awesomenauts!


Now work that snotty, work that snotty

And make sure you don’t hurt that nauty!

Break time now, give him some slack

And clap to his slimy track!

Ending (2x)

We gonna party with the Snork now,

We gonna party with the Snork now yeah, yeah,

Snork Gunk 002

For the better part of a year, Bozo Gunk entertained guests outside the Pearl Sluggers stadium ahead of every home game. He quickly became a beloved and well-known character among fans, but one day he simply disappeared. When asked for information on what happened to their favorite mascot, the Pearl Sluggers management simply replied "Wait, who? We never had a clown work here."

The fate of Bozo Gunk remained unclear and fans were left wondering what had become of him, but a mysterious crime spree and series of (still unsolved) kidnappings ended did come to an end around the time of his disappearance. Last week, old-time fans were surprised to see an old friend reappear near the Pearl Slugger stadium to spread cheer and happiness once more.

This DLC contains a custom skin for Snork Gunk in Awesomenauts. You need to have Snork Gunk available as a playable character in order to access the skin in-game. Owning this skin will also unlock the special portrait for use in-game. This skin contains a fully customized voice set. - Official Steam Store Description

Trivia[ | ]

  • Despite being mentioned in backstory and in-game lore before, Snork is the first stance of a Scargi actually appearing in the game.

References[ | ]


Playing As:[ | ]

Playing With:[ | ]

  • Follow up on the crowd control provided by Sticky Snail with damaging abilities of your own.
  • Snork can always benefit from abilities and upgrades that benefit his movement speed, as he needs to stick to his enemies.

Playing Against:[ | ]

  • Most of Snork's damage comes from his Shell Bombs approach him when it's on cooldown or silence him.
  • Consider saving your abilities for when Snork approaches you with Sticky Snail
    • Alternatively, be very careful if you're low on health, as Snork can quickly and suddenly close the gap between you and him.
  • Snork's Conch Dunk can only hit one target at a time, so if you can reliably push, try to apply pressure to him.
  • Despite being labelled as a harasser, Snork doesn't have much range outside of Sticky Snail. Other harrassing abilities such as Snipe, Ball Lightning and Rocket Launch can outrange him.
  • If you must engage Snork at close range, consider getting so close to him that his Shell Bombs overshoot you, but be wary, as he might have purchased Cockle Multiball.
