|First appearance||Mole Hunt|
|Voiced by||Neal Holman|
Brett Bunsen was an ISIS employee who has been shot numerous times while employed there. His occupation at ISIS is unknown. Brett permanently walks with Lofstrand crutches, which is most likely due to one or both of his first gunshot wounds from Sterling Archer. He paid for the right to say he had sex with Lana in "Dial M for Mother."
During "Stage Two," when Brett learns of Sterling's breast cancer he makes a joke about Archer getting a disease that's most commonly suffered by women. Despite Sterling's good mood, he pummels Brett in response. Archer would then make amends with Brett by giving him a pink ribbon. He earned the nickname of "Mr. Bloodmobile" for his ability to lose great amounts of blood without dying. He finally died via a headshot wound in White Elephant.
In "El Secuestro", Brett's name appears on an ISIS computer as "Brett Buckley" which seems to conflict with his name, "Brett Bunsen", revealed in season 5.
Brett is a bullet magnet at ISIS headquarters. Whether he's hit by a ricochet while walking by or attempting to put his pants on, he always manages to get randomly shot, many times courtesy of Sterling.
1st Gunshot WoundEdit
2nd Gunshot WoundEdit
In the locker room during "Diversity Hire" during a competition with Conway Stern, Archer tries to prove the stopping power of his small gun by shooting Brett while he puts on his pants, thus stopping him.
3rd Gunshot WoundEdit
Brett suffers a third gunshot wound when Rona Thorne tries shooting an automatic weapon down range at the ISIS shooting range in "Movie Star". As an apology, Rona tells Brett to get a new suit and charge it to her manager.
4th Gunshot WoundEdit
His fourth gunshot wound is provided by Cyril in "El Secuestro." This wound occurred during an ISIS lockdown and was much more serious than the rest. After being forced to cover reception and answer the phones, he eventually passes out.
5th Gunshot WoundEdit
Brett suffers a fifth gunshot wound when Lana demonstrates how Archer's new car is bulletproof in "Drift Problem".
6th Gunshot WoundEdit
Brett managed to be shot a sixth time in "Legs" by a bullet fired from Archer that ricocheted at least five times, including off of Cyril's pocketwatch and a fire extinguisher, before hitting Brett in a stairwell causing massive bleeding. This particular shot involving a 'magic bullet' had Sterling reference the Warren Commission which investigated the assassination of JFK.
7th Gunshot WoundEdit
In the ISIS Training video clip, a drunken Archer is demonstrating gun safety to new recruits when he realizes (after shooting several times) that none of them have ear protection. He asks one of the recruits to hold his gun while he gets ear plugs and tosses it to him. The recruit fumbles with the gun in fear, before dropping it to the ground. The gun, however, does not go off. Archer begins to say how lucky they were, before it suddenly shoots off and hits Brett off-screen.
8th Gunshot Wound and DeathEdit
In the season 5 premiere, "White Elephant", Brett is shot in the head and killed when Archer attempts to get his attention during the FBI raid.
In "Stage Two", Brett is beaten badly by Archer after he mocks Archer's breast cancer.
In "Skin Game", Brett is horribly beaten in an elevator by Barry Dylan when he is sent to receive alcohol for Archer's second wedding with Katya Kazanova. Scrawled in his blood on the wall behind him are the messages "Barry was here" and "so was Other Barry".
Later in the same episode, Brett was again horribly beaten by Archer, who mistook him for Barry while hunting for the cyborg in the dark.
Brett's status is deceased.
Ususally when Brett gets shot, he yells "God DAMN it, [name of whoever shot him]!"
