How To Play Brawl Stars
Top 3 Must Know Brawl Star Tips for Beginners
1. Team Up To Focus Fire & Defeat Foes One At A Time
Stick with your teammates so you can instantly overpower your foes, eliminating them one at a time! You can take advantage of their respawn cooldown to hunt other Brawlers and clean up their line up.
2. Don't Get Eliminated - Time Your Attack Push & Retreats
Know when to push your attacks and when to fall back. Try not to get killed to avoid the respawn cooldown in order to help you and your team survive longer in the match.
3. Use Map Terrain To Your Advantage
Use your surroundings to gain an advantage over your enemies. Hide in bushes to attack behind other Brawlers or to quickly withdraw and heal. You can also use walls to avoid direct shots & protect yourself while peeking across the map.
Drag Left Blue Control To Move Brawler
You can control your Brawler and move them around by pressing your finger onto the left side of screen. Drag the Blue Control option to direct your Brawler's movements. Check the direction indicator on your brawler to check where they're facing!
Drag / Tap Right Red Control To Aim Your Attack
The Red Control option on the right side of the screen controls the direction of your attacks. You direct your aim by dragging it around. Use this to anticipate your enemy's move before letting loose!
Double Tap To Quick Fire / Auto-Aim
You can double tap the right side of the screen to attack your closest target automatically! You can use this technique with both your regular attack & special attacks. This method is best when engaging enemies in close quarter!
Replenish HP When Away From Battle
Taking a break from battle, whether avoiding enemy attacks or not attacking any enemies, will replenish your HP after a bit of time. Remember that you need to be away from battle for your healing cooldown to activate!
Attack Up To 3 Times Before Reloading
Every Brawler can only do 3 shots before a cooldown starts for ammo reloading. You have to wait until the first part of the ammo bar is filled before you can take another shot. Step away and retreat to avoid being taken down by enemies!
Unleash Super Moves When Skull Icon is Highlighted!
When you've dealt damage to enemy Brawlers, your Super Gauge will fill up. Once the Skull Button is highlighted, drag or tap this button to activate your Super! Each Brawler will have a unique set of Super Moves with variety of effects such as healing or unleashing a mega attack!
Use Bushes For Sneak Attacks Or Healing
You can utilize bushes in the maps to deliver sneak attacks on unsuspecting enemy Brawlers. You can also use them to hide & heal, away from battle. Beware as you may also find enemy Brawlers in the bushes, use your attacks to scout the area!
There Is Respawn Cooldown When You Die
If you lose all your HP, you'll have to respawn on your team's side of the map. An amount of time must pass before your respawn, which can turn the tides of your match, so be careful!
