Brawl Stars December 2017 Update Release Notes

Brawl Stars just came out with a game-changing update, adding a new Brawler named Darryl, getting rid of chips and elixir, and adding two new game modes: Boss Fight and Robo Rumble. With this big December 2017 update, it is likely that Brawl Stars will be going global and be on Android soon! Here are the full release notes for the Brawl Stars December update!


Brawl Stars December 2017 Update


Darryl is a dual shotgun wielding robot who’s ready to roll! When his super is activated he jumps into his barrel to roll around the map damaging enemies along the way, and taking less damage.


  • The Elixir system is being replaced with Brawler-specific item drops for Attack, Super, and Health. Each category can be upgraded six times, and any of the items can be found in Brawl Boxes.
  • Missing items can be crafted with Tokens (found in Brawl Boxes), but must be upgraded in order.
  • This system favors dropping items to Brawlers that have fewer items, so if you unlock a new Brawler you are more likely to receive items for that Brawler
  • Total potential upgrade bonus will increase from 25% to 35% for maxed out Brawlers
  • Each Brawler has one unique/special upgrade that will add to or change the Brawler’s gameplay


  • Players will receive a rank up bonus for every rank gained. Ranks are based on Total Trophies. Each Rank up increases the season end reward (which is now based only on Total Trophies)
  • Players will receive rank up bonuses retroactively once they update


  • Friendly Battles! You can now play any mode and map with your friends! (except the new special game modes)
  • Can now select any active event from a dropdown menu
  • Can now see collected coins from within the game room


  • New special event Game Mode that can be played with tickets!
  • Tickets can be found in Brawl Boxes, and expire after the week’s event concludes
  • Robo Rumble – You and two friends try to protect your safe against wave after wave of killer robots. Surviving longer brings better rewards!
  • Boss Fight – 1 Boss Brawler vs. 5 Regular Brawlers! Player with the Boss Brawler has increased health, reload speed, damage, and movement speed.


  • A single-use name change is available in settings after XP level 5
  • If a player is defeated while an item is being grabbed (gem, star, etc) the item stays on the game field instead of disappearing
  • All Brawler’s damage and health stats are multiplied by 4 in order to improve balancing accuracy

  • Ricochet: Bullets from main weapon and Super does 100 more damage after they have bounced
