#1: Don’t Rush In Solo! Go With Your Team
Most of the competitive game modes in Brawl Stars put you in a small team. If you want to win, you’ll want to wait for your team — even if you respawn first. It’s better to wait near the spawn so you can enter the fray with all your friends then get ganged-up on when you go it alone.
- NOTE: Beware the enemy spawn point. When you spawn, you have a short window of invincibility. There’s no reason to spawncamp — you’ll just get blasted. Try to hold the center and don’t push further.
#2: Want To Counter Shotgunners? Always Check The Bushes
Shotgunners love to hide in bushes, and if you’re not careful, they’ll spring out and blast you at point-blanc range, putting you down for good. It’s worth wasting the ammo and checking those bushes for bad guys.
#3: When You Need To Heal, Don’t Attack!
Attacking actually cancels your healing. When you need to heal, don’t tap anyone and try to attack. You can only heal when you’re not shooting.
#4: Go For Those Power Cubes
Power Cubes are pickups you can grab mid-battle that increase your health and damage. The more a player has collected, the more they’ll drop when they’re defeated — essentially, you’ll get 50% of the Power Cubes a player is carrying when they’re defeated. So, if you’re fighting someone with 8 Power Cubes, they’ll drop 4. Keep that in mind!
