Brawl Stars went global last month, which means we finally get to see a meta in which every brawler is used worldwide. Which is the best brawler in Brawl Stars and which is the worst? Here are the brawler power rankings in Brawl Stars for 2019!
Brawler Power Rankings for 2019
While some players prefer to play with Bull as their main tank, in my experience with Bull, I have found him to be almost absolutely unplayable, dealing nearly 0 damage with his shotgun. If you can get close with Bull, you can usually do alright, but if you do end up close, you’ll wish you were playing with El Primo instead.
Once upon a time, Bo was my favorite brawler to play with, but currently, he is way too weak to actually be viable in all game modes. His special, at one time one of the best specials in Brawl Stars, now barely deals enough damage to take out half of a weak brawler. There are too many better long range options out there for Bo to be at the top of the meta.
Similarly to Bo, there are a lot of better alternatives to Brock which can reliably get damage. It is really tough to connect on a shot with Brock, though his special ability can be used well in certain circumstances. I really think that Brock needs a wider range with his missiles doing less damage, otherwise he will stay at the bottom.
Yet another super long range brawler at the bottom of the power rankings… see a trend? Piper is one of the highest damage dealers in Brawl Stars, yet it is near impossible to take advantage of that damage. The maps created recently have been skewed towards shorter range units since these maps have so many walls.
One of the newer brawlers in the game, Penny is yet another super long range unit that cannot excel fully right now based on the maps in Brawl Stars. However, her super ability is one of the better ones in the game, and with the maps with many walls, the mortar is able to be protected and can shut down a number of brawlers.
Frank is actually a very strong brawler, especially in Showdown, but the issue here is that there are other strong brawlers in Brawl Stars right now. Frank’s special is great, allowing you to knock down basically anything close. His normal attack is slacking a little bit though, with El Primo being more effective at a close range.
I think that we can all agree that Jessie’s special turret is one of the most annoying supers in Brawl Stars, but that is what makes Jessie so great. There’s no doubt that her normal attack is absolute garbage, but the special really does make up for the fact. She can be a great brawler to pair in behind a few tanks to dominate.
Just like Bull, the special ability that allows you to roll with no control really doesn’t even help your gameplay, but actually even hurts it. However, Darryl is one of the better tanks in Brawl Stars, with a great attack that can hit a wide range of units. If his special was a little bit better, Darryl could be one of the best brawlers in Brawl Stars.
There was a time when Ricochet would have been at the peak of these power rankings, but he still ends up doing pretty well. His ricocheting volley allows you to hit enemy brawlers that are hiding behind walls. The special from Ricochet only extends this ability, making it nearly impossible to hit from this brawler.
Personally, I don’t like playing with Colt whatsoever, but there is no denying that Colt has some style. If you can predict where your opponent will be, Colt can laser them down. However, it can be kind of hard to get Colt to lock onto an enemy brawler since he does only shoot in a straight line. Practice makes perfect with Colt.
I have never unlocked Tara, but I feel fear when she throws her special to suck in myself and my teammates. While there are better alternatives to Tara without a doubt, there is no team players quite like Tara. Tara can suck everyone together, which, when paired with Dynamike or Barley, can kill an entire squad.
In Brawl Stars, I really like healing brawlers, which is why I am a big fan of Poco. With such a wide range, it seems as if Poco can touch almost the entire field. Because it is so easy for him to deal damage, though not a lot, he can quickly charge up his special, leading for nearly constant healing for himself and nearby teammates.
#10- El Primo
I’m a huge fan of El Primo as the original brawler tank in Brawl Stars. Sometimes it can be frustrating not being able to reach enemy brawlers from far away, but the health that El Primo brings to the table is unbeatable. I think that his super ability does need a bit of work, but we don’t want to do too much to make El Primo OP again.
Mostly considered the weaker option to Barley, Dynamike is a great brawler in his own right. While Barley is undeniably the better brawler, Dynamike is no slouch either, throwing his bombs well enough to be a great crowd control brawler. I think that in order to really compete with Barley, his bombs need to do more damage.
This is the original brawler, the one first unlocked, and also, one of the best brawlers in Brawl Stars. Shelly can be great at either close range or long range, which is one of the reasons that she is so great in the game. I think it is great that Shelly remains a decent choice and the legendary brawlers don’t take over the game.
The lowest ranked of our legendary brawlers is Spike, who is basically a sure fire way to get damage, but really has to rely on other brawlers in order to succeed. His special ability does this perfectly, trapping everyone together while dealing damage to everyone at the same time.
There is simply no brawler like Mortis which is part of the reason why he is nearly in the top 5 brawlers in the game. His attack can literally take out any brawler in the matter of seconds. His special isn’t quite as good as other brawlers, but his unique attack and speed makes him almost unbeatable.
I absolutely despise going up against Nita and that is for good reason. The bear that she can spawn can occupy opponents for some time, which gives your team more time to score in Brawl Ball or collect more gems in Gem Grab. Her normal attack isn’t terrible either, being able to deal decent damage at a mid-range level.
While Crow’s super isn’t enough to take down any brawlers, he can deal damage to an entire team, depending on how you use it. Being a legendary brawler Crow has to be good, but his attack covers a wide range and can really chip down brawlers over time. If you are lucky enough to unlock Crow, you should be using him!
With Pam being the only other brawler that has healing capabilities in Brawl Stars, she is invaluable to the team. She’s even better than Poco too, since her healing station could be permanent while Poco’s is a one-time move. Also, with the range on the healing station, your teammates could camp around the gem provider to the win.
Love him or hate him, there is no way you can’t say Barley is one of the best brawlers in Brawl Stars. The constant splash of his Molotov cocktails make it difficult to move as an enemy brawler and really work well for crowd control. His special is also absolutely amazing, shutting down everything is a huge radius.
The newest released brawler is also the best, with Leon taking the top spot in the power rankings to start 2019. His invisibility is arguably the best special ability in Brawl Stars and his normal attack is a quality way to kill tanks up close and long ranged units from a distance. I think there is a nerf coming to Leon soon.
So that wraps it up for our first power rankings in Brawl Stars since it went global. I’m really loving the game, and I hope that you guys are as well. Thanks for reading and comment below what you think about our rankings in Brawl Stars!
