This article is going to give you the best ideas about the best Boss and Anti-Boss Brawlers in the Brawl Stars Big Game Mode!
Best Bosses for Big Game
First of all, a lot of Brawlers like Colt, Rico, Pam, Crow and Leon can be played decently as the boss and I considered putting them in the B tier. But honestly, the biggest issue is that they don’t actually have the ability to finish off many players while they’re being swarmed. Because their attacks are not fierce, they have to focus on one person at a time and typically that’s not the best. So unfortunately, they are not in the competitive B tier.
Now, the exception to this is Spike. Spike is in the B tier.
He is very strong but he does suffer from getting surrounded by a bunch of Brawlers all at once. Not having the splash damage makes it difficult for him to deal with a lot of Brawlers.
But what makes him different from Colt or Crow is the fact that he is able to quickly finish a Brawler like within 1-2 hits, so it doesn’t take a lot of time.
You just like kind of have this constant stream of people dying as they walk up to Spike and he takes them out.
Darryl also is in the B tier.
The goal of playing Darryl is to charge up your Super and run away from people rather than engaging them in the combat very often.
His auto supercharge gets a little bit nerf when he is the boss so he doesn’t get to use it as frequently, but it doesn’t take long for him to hit a couple of shots and then use that to roll away.
The reason why he can be a solid boss whereas Bull or El Primo cannot is the fact that his attacks reach out a little bit further than theirs and he’s able to consistently charges up his super to run away frequently.
Penny is an A tier Boss. Her splash can be very annoying against the enemy team. She’s not quite as annoying as Jessie’s, but it is absolutely annoying if people aren’t paying attention and they’re bunching up close to each other which happens quite frequently.
Because there are five anti-bosses and so her bounds makes it very very annoying for the anti-bosses to take her out.
You can also put your turret in the very far back just to protect it. You can either put it to the one side or the other side or whatever and that will force people to go up to the turret. It’s very annoying because they’re gonna be dodging back and forth with your shots and then your turrets gonna hitting them. The turret is not quite as good as Jessie’s turret but it is a solid option.
Also in the A tier is Tara. Tara is a really good boss, although she’s awful when she’s not the boss.
There’s a lot of reasons why she’s good.
Her splash means that she’s been able to attack multiple targets. The fact that she deals a decent amount of damage up close means that she’s going to be able to burst people down when they do happen to get up close to her.
Her super is the coolest thing ever because you can wipe multiple players all at the same time with one single super in a couple of attacks. It just brings them all in and then they get obliterated.
When you’re playing Mortis, you absolutely want to avoid Brawlers that can slow you down like Spike, Shelly, even Frank.
The thing with Mortis is that while he is great as a boss, he is so bad as an anti-boss. If you play Mortis, he will just annoy everybody in your team if you’re not the boss. If you are the boss, you will annoy people a lot, definitely.
Nita and the bear are the spawn of the devil when it comes to the boss. They’re so annoying.
Nita’s bear did recently get nerfed as way less health than he used to have, but it’s still super annoying.
Nita can attack through people, Nita can deal damage to multiple people at once. Her star power also allows her to heal her bear.
She has a really fast reload speed which means that her buffed attacks are going to deal a ton of damage to multiple Brawlers.
She’s just a monster as a boss.
As a boss, Jessie is just a nightmare to deal with.
Her turret is strong but the main reason why Jessie is so good in Big hunt is because of the splash attack.
When you have six enemy players all bunched up, if you hit one of those six people, it is almost guaranteed to hit at least two other people.
Because there’s so much that’s going on, it’s just impossible for people to pay attention to who’s gonna dodge, who is not going to dodge.
The Best Anti-Bosses in Big Game
Now let’s talk about the Anti-Boss Brawlers in Big Game.
There are Brawlers that you’re going to want to play most of the time if you actually want to get good rewards.
In the B tier, we have Crow. Crow is not the best, but he is a pretty good option.
He’s good at helping the team fight the enemy boss and that’s what you use him for.
You can use your super if you get close up and do like a ton of damage if you’re really up close. But if you do that you’ve got to be willing to risk getting taken out before. I wouldn’t recommend doing this very often but it’s at least useful for you to try out.
Next in the B tier. We got Pam.
She has very high consistent DPS up close but typically she’s not gonna want to be up close in boss fight, because she will just typically die from it.
She can attack from a distance but that will decrease her DPS.
She’s a good option for control like a wide-spread shot can make the boss move in a specific area that you want to move them to. She can help support. She doesn’t burst heal as Poco does and she’s not the best healer but she’s a decent option.
Also in the B tier, Barley is one of the least-used Brawlers.
He’s actually really good the reason why is because he can attack from a distance, he can use those walls to stay alive.
He’s a great counter against Penny and Jessie’s turrets. He does not have as much DPS as Dynamike, but he offers great area control.
His super can force enemy Brawlers into tricky situations.
I’m not saying that he’s the best but he’s at least a decent option.
Dynamike is also in the B tier.
He can use those walls to stay alive. And that’s one thing is that dynamite actually has more consistent DPS than Barley does.
It does take a little bit of practice to know how to aim his shots but if you’re good at aiming his shots, he’s gonna deal more consistent damage and stay alive than most other enemy Brawlers.
His super can also knock back a boss which can disrupt their flow and can give you a little bit of an advantage, especially when paired up with other Brawlers that can do the same.
Also in the B tier, we have Penny.
She’s not quite as good as Jessie but her turret can be a very annoying thing to beat enemy boss if you just place it to one side or the other maybe even a little bit further back so that it will be able to land hits, then that turret can be very annoying.
Because typically, the bosses had to move back and forth to dodge different Brawlers from various attacks and stuff and so that turret will land hits very frequently.
It’s not like Jessie’s turret where you can just avoid it. You have to walk up to that turret to take it out and then that puts you in that displaces, so the other Brawlers are gonna be able to take you out and it’s pretty decent.
She doesn’t have consistent damage because of her attack. She kind of has a relatively slower reload speed and you do have to aim those shots pretty well.
And she’s also a really solid counter against Nita and Jessie because of her splash damage.
We are moving to the A tier, starting with Jessie. I actually consider Jessie a lot for A tier.
Her regular attack is not going to consistently deal a ton of damage but her turret can be very annoying and the thing with Jessie is kind of a double-edged sword but Jessie’s regular attack is actually a good counter against bosses.
The best thing for you to do as her is to just try and keep your distance from the enemy boss so you can stay alive and deal a lot of damage.
Rico is another Brawler that I do not see a whole lot of people playing him.
Probably because he’s not very good as the boss but he’s actually really great at dealing a ton of damage from a distance.
He has low HP which means that he can get taken out pretty easily, but he has the range, so he is able to keep the enemy boss away.
Maps with lots of walls are actually really excellent for him because he can bounce shots from a range and the walls are perfectly angled so that you can bounce shots around and hit the enemy boss basically wherever they are. It forces the boss into difficult situations, so they cannot hide when they would like to.
He’s also good on the other Big Hunt map because of its very wide open area and in being able to attack from a distance there as well.
He’s not as good as some other Brawlers but if you can do so, there is nothing more satisfying than landing two or three Rico supers on a boss over and over again.
Colt’s also in the A tier for similar reasons to Rico.
He has a ton of DPS. From a distance, he can charge supers.
His star power gives him a good move speed so he can actually dodge some of those Jessie, Ricochet shots that are going all over the place.
He’s kind of similar to Rico, so he’s super easy to pull off. If you can pull him off, he’s a very solid option.
His super can also be used to remove the bosses terrain, making it harder for them to run away and easier for your team to actually locate them and take them out.
Also in the A tier, we have Nita.
Nita has a very wide attack me easy to hit that fast-moving boss.
Her bear is very great at locating the enemy boss and forcing the enemy boss to waste a few attacks on that bear.
This does act as a little bit of a double-edged sword against like Jessie which will happen a lot, because Jessie’s everywhere, but she has decent HP which allows her to have a lot of survivability and her fast reload speed allows her to deal consistent damage and very frequently to the enemy boss. This makes her once again a very solid option.
In the S tier, we’ve got Mr Spiky Boy.
Spike is so good as an anti-boss and the reason why is because his super is so controlling. It slows the boss down, making it way easier for your teammates to deal a ton of damage.
Also, his attacks have a very widespread and have a lot of burst potential which makes him a very solid option as well very easy for him to find the enemy boss.
It actually hit the enemy boss from around walls and stuff like that. Overall, Spike is just a great option against the boss. As Spike, you do absolutely have to keep your distance, so that you do not get taken out by the boss
But if you use your walls right then, he’s gonna be it’s such a great option.
Shelley is so good against the boss and the reason why is because of her ability to chain her supers.
All you have to do is charge up the super, which is kind of slow. You can keep her distance if you need to.
All it takes is a super with a regular attack for you to actually let off another super and if you just tap right where that super button is you can just chain this over and over again.
So, she can deal massive amounts to the enemy boss for slowing them down.
If you’re maxed out, it stuns the enemy boss for just a second as well so they can’t attack back for that split second.
There’s a lot of Brawlers that are good in one but aren’t good in the other. I think that Shelly is the best Brawler for you to play consistently. Because while she’s not the best boss five out of six times, you’re gonna be the anti-boss which means that if you’re going to try and get consistent tokens and try and earn as much as you possibly can. Shelly’s gonna be your best bet especially if a lot of people are playing Shelly as well.
You also have a couple of other Brawlers that are on both tier list like Spike, Penny, Nita and Jessie who are all really great options in both modes.
