Tier List Criteria

Tier List Criteria - Brawl Stars.jpg
We made this list on how well a character can perform in team and solo matches, how well they do their role, and how strong they can get with their Star Powers and Gadgets. Additionally, we disregarded their rarity and how easy you can get them in making this list.

Tier List Criteria Overview
Team & Solo Matches Capabilities Star Powers and Gadgets Compatibility Role and Overall Performance
  • Team and Solo Matches Capabilities: Some brawlers can fight well in solo or team matches, or both. They usually can perform well on different brawl events as well. These Brawlers that are good in both solo and team matches are well-ranked on the list.
  • Star Powers and Gadgets Compatibility: Most, if not all, Star Powers and Gadgets will make your Brawlers get stronger. There are also Star Powers and Gadgets that work well with each other. And thus, Brawlers with the best combination of Star Powers and Gadgets are rated higher than the other.
  • Role and Overall Performance: Every Brawler has their role in the game. We also kept that in mind while creating this list. Brawlers that can do two or more parts than intended are ranked higher than the others. That is also true for Brawlers with the same role but can do better than the others. Squeak, for example, is probably the best Fighter Brawler as of now because of how he can control an area and defeat any type of Brawlers fast who get in his range. He also received a couple of buffs at the start of Season 8, making him more powerful than ever.
