Unexpected Invisible Bug

After the Maintenance Break to change some stats for Jacky and Meg, it was followed up with a bug that makes Brawlers invisible on Android devices. There will be a new Maintenance Break later on to fix this bug, and we will update you once the exact time is out!

New Brawler - Meg

New Brawler Meg - Brawl Stars.png
A new legendary Brawler is making its way to Brawl Stars, named Meg. Meg is a genius at repairing vending machines, and she wants to be a hero like Max and Surge. Meg now joins the battle, even if Max and Surge think she's not up to the challenge yet!

Balance Changes


Belle Attack Nerf

Shocker Reduced her normal attack damage from 1100 to 1040.
Reduced normal attack bounce damage from 550 to 520.
Developer Notes: Despite the previous nerfs, Belle still dominated in several game modes and maps. Reducing her damage from the main attack (and indirectly bounce damage) should bring her more in line with other long-range damage dealers and less of a must-pick.

Belle Stats, Skills, and Skins


Jacky Super Ability buff

Holey-Moley Super Removed the delay on Super upon activation, and makes her move or attack while the Super is active.
Developer Notes: Jacky's Super "Holey Moley!" was too weak and never really fulfilled its intended role, mainly due to the involved delay timers. Removing the delay and allowing Jacky to be more mobile should allow her to become more of a threat when she activates her Super.

Jacky Stats, Skills, and Skins


Brock Attack Tweaks

Rockin' Rocket Increased the explosion radius of normal attack by 50%.
Reduced damage from 1220 to 1160.
Range decreased from 30 to 27.
Rocket FuelRocket Fuel Removed the bonus damage.
Developer Notes: In an effort to provide each long-range damage dealer with their own niche, Brock's abilities now focus more on his ability to deal area and splash damage. The nerfs to his main attack range and damage are meant to off-set his new area damage potential

Brock Stats, Skills, and Skins

Carl Gadget Tweaks

Heat EjectorHeat Ejector The fire from Heat Ejector now follows Carl's Axe rather than Carl himself.
Developer Notes: Carl's Gadget "Heat Ejector" was only useful when fleeing from an engagement or in conjunction with his Super. This change will give the Gadget more versatility, allow for more interesting plays and give him more area control capabilities which is in line with the rest of his kit.
