Officially known as Model CX-1-DA300 Combat Robot, the members of the force refer to him as "Browny" because of his warm personality. His ability to link up with numerous data systems makes him an unsurpassed intelligence tool.

Not to be confused with Brownie (BR-W9).

Browny (ブラウニー Buraunī?), officially known as Model CX-1-DA300 Combat Robot, is a character in Contra: Hard Corps.


  • Weapon A: Victory Laser—A rapid-fire laser which shoots a V-shaped beam.
  • Weapon B: Gemini Scatter—Returns like a boomerang.
  • Weapon C: Electromagnetic Yo-Yo—Holding the button down causes it to automatically attack the enemy.
  • Weapon D: Shield Chaser—Holding the button down causes it to rotate around Browny, releasing it fires it at an enemy.


  • Pressing the C button during a jump causes Browny to hover.
  • Browny is arguably regarded as the easiest character to use in the game due to his low height/small hitbox which makes him harder to hit by enemies, his ability to hover, as well as the tracking ability and large damage of his Electromagnetic Yo-Yo. However, he is still weaker than Fang, who has the Power Punch/Psychic Blaster exploit.
