Brawler Tier List

S Rank Brawlers - Extremely Powerful & Versatile

Crow - Effectively Eliminate Brawlers With DoT

CROW Image

Crow shoots far-range poison daggers that have damage-over-time when a hit connects. Though not powerful on its own, a hit's damage increases over time, slowly but surely whittling down an opponent's health.

DoT Cancels Enemy Self-Healing

An enemy Brawler inflicted with Crow's poison won't be able to self-heal for the time the poison is active. Crow can target & hit a mid-low health Brawler and watch s/he slowly die as they make their retreat.

Poison Damage Reveals Hiding Brawlers

When the poison inflicts damage on a Brawler hidden in grass, they are temporarily revealed. Crow can quickly swoop in and finish them off when this happens.

Great In Most Modes, Especially Indirect Damage Support

Crow's attacks are effective against any Brawler and he is useful in most, if not all, Events. He shines in Gem Grab, as he can simply hit an enemy Brawler, let its damage take its toll, then move on to picking up gems.

Leon - Burst Damage With Stealth Moves

Get Behind Brawler's Backs To Deal Most Damage

Leon's movement speed is quite high and he can turn invisible with his Super. It's a great tactic to hide in bushes, activate his Super, creep behind an unknowing enemy Brawler, and do burst damage on them to eliminate them.

Excellent At Racking Up Damage to Single Target

Leon's Super is what makes him excel at almost all of the Events in Brawl Stars. He can easily slip in and out of sight, dealing damage to the safe in Heist, doing sneak attacks to get kills in Bounty, and etc.

A Rank Brawlers - Effective In Specific Events / Roles

AoE Attacks Can Control Enemy Movement

The liquid formed when Barley throws his bottles deal area-of-effect damage. This allows him to block an enemy Brawler's path and harass their front lines, denying their movement & controlling the direction they move.

Can Deal Ranged Damage Over Walls

Another one of Barley's advantages is that he can use an Event map's walls & obstacles to protect himself while lobbing his ranged attacks over them. This allows him to last longer in a match while still doing damage!

Best Used In Gem Grab & Heist

Barley can deny enemy Brawlers access to the gem mine in Gem Grab using his AoE attacks. His range can also easily reach the enemy safe in Heist.

Great As Support & Defense In Other Events

Barley may not excel in Solo Showdown but he can be effective in pushing in Duo mode. He can create paths in Brawl Ball and also work best as a line-backer in Bounty.

Great Defensive Team Player

Pam is a great defensive Brawler to have in a team Event. Her normal attacks don't deal enough damage to eliminate enemies single-handedly, but they do spread far & wide, allowing her to provide cover fire for her allies.

Has High HP & Her Super Can Heal

Pam's high HP allows her to last longer in a match, making her a mid-tier tank. Plus, her Super supports this high HP with a healing turret that replenishes her & her allies' HP as long as they stay within its range.

Works Best In Team Events

Pam excels in Events that have her supporting a team. Her Super will charge quickly due to the wide-range of her shrapnel attacks & her healing turret helps her allies survive longer! With her Star Power, she will be able to heal herself and friends for each hit she makes, significantly boosting team survivability!

Poco's wide-range sound waves make him a great damage dealer & support in both Gem Grab & Bounty. He can stay a safe distance away and support teammates with higher attack power with his Super. His wide attack range will also help your allies finish off their rivals even while moving.

Spike - Strong AoE With Super
