Brawl Stars Tier List

Who are the best brawlers in Brawl Stars? Win more of your brawls by using this Brawl Stars tier list, which is up-to-date with the current meta.

When it comes to multiplayer shooting mayhem, none could top what Brawl Stars can offer, and its multiple game modes set the stage for an equally colorful cast of characters.

Chaos reigns in Brawl Stars, but you can use this to your advantage by optimizing your play around the best characters (called Brawlers).

We’ve prepared several tier lists that cater to each game mode, since each Brawler has a unique toolkit that fits these modes differently. This is the best way to rank each Brawler as it avoids lumping them into a one-dimensional evaluation style.

The final section will contain a list of all Brawlers, as well as a description of their abilities. You can skip ahead to that list here.

Now that we got that out of the way, let’s dive right into the tier lists.

Note: Since only a handful of Brawlers are viable per game mode, each tier list will only have tiers S to C. If a Brawler is not included, that means they do not fit in that game mode at all.

Gem Grab Tier List

Gem Grab is the “default” game mode in Brawl Stars because of its popularity. It’s a 3v3 game where the goal is to carry 10 gems (as a team) for 15 seconds.

A player will drop their gems as soon as they are defeated, so high HP and powerful attacks are crucial in this mode.

Brawl Ball Tier List

Brawl Ball is a 3v3 team game akin to football. In this mode, a ball will spawn at the center of the map.

The goal of each team is to take this ball to the opponent’s goal on the other end of the field. The first team to score 2 goals wins the match.

Heist Tier List

Heist is a 3v3 mode where both sides have to protect their safes, located at the spawning zone.

The first team to break the opponent’s safe wins the match. In this mode, offense and zoning are the keys to victory as you need to dish out damage as well as control the area around your team’s safe.

Bounty Tier List

Bounty is a timed mode that lasts for 2 ½ minutes. It’s a 3v3 team match where the goal is simply to defeat as many enemy Brawlers as you can. Every time you defeat an opponent, your bounty rises. When you eventually get defeated, your total bounty will be added to the opponent’s score.

Bounty is a tense game mode where comebacks are not a foreign concept. Offensive power and mobility are key stats here because you want to be able to rack up those kills while avoiding damage yourself.

Siege Tier List

In Siege mode, each team has a base with a massive cannon installed to protect it. The goal is to destroy the opposing team’s home base. Bolt bolts spawn in the middle of the map.

Players need to collect these to start building a Robo that will push towards the enemy base. The team that builds their Robo first has an advantage, since they can start pushing enemy forces ahead of the other team.

Showdown (Solo) Tier List

In Solo Showdown, 10 Brawlers are placed on the map. To win the match, you must be the last Brawler standing. Some power-ups spawn for you to enhance your Brawler’s abilities.

The map also collapses from the edges like a battle royale game, so you need to be prepared to face opponents sooner or later. Brawlers only have one life per round in this mode.
