What is Gem?
Gems can be bought in Brawl Stars with real money. In fact, that is the only way they can be obtained.
Gems serve as a premium currency to buy boosts, special offers, and skins.
Like most games with in-game purchases, the more you buy at a time, the better the deal.
The first thing you should know is that the special packs at level 5, 15, 25, 35, etc. In the game are the best ways to buy Gems.
Below is a chart of each offer, with how many gems you get compared to the others.
|Gem Pack||Price (USD)||Gems/Dollar|
|30 Gems (a fist full of Gems)||$1.99 USD||15|
|80 Gems (a pouch of Gems)||$4.99 USD||16|
|170 Gems (a satchel of Gems)||$9.99 USD||17|
|360 Gems (a bucket of Gems)||$19.99 USD||18|
|950 Gems (a crate full of Gems)||$49.99 USD||19|
|2000 Gems (a haul of Gems)||$99.99 USD||20|
As you can see, the amount of Gems-per-Dollar spent increases as you spend more money at a time. This increase is minimal, so don’t go spending more money just for a better deal.
However, if you do feel like you will be spending more soon, try to just wait and spend it all on a bigger offer than multiple small ones.
After purchasing Gems, you can spend them on purchasing different items in game.

The Best Ways To Spend Gems in Brawl Stars
In short, the best ways to spend Gems in Brawl Stars are:
- Buying Brawl Pass
- Purchasing Token Doublers
- Purchasing Special Offers (30% OFF or more)
- Don’t think about the other buys
The least effective of using Gems should be purchasing one Big Box for 30 Gems. This is the equivalent of 3 Regular Brawl Boxes and that basically means the rate here is 10 Gems per Regular Brawl Box.
Next is the Mega Box purchase with the equivalent of 10 Regular Brawl Boxes for 80 Gems. That means it costs 8 Gems per Regular Box.
Next is the Mega Box daily deal where you have a Mega Box for 60 Gems. This is 20 Gems discount off the regular price, which is the equivalent of 6 Gems per box.
If you are a new player, the most efficient way for you to consistently spend Gems is going to be on the Brawl Pass. Like Clash Royale, Brawl Pass is the best way to spend your gems. It has 6 mega boxes, 10 big boxes, 1300 coins, 1200 star points, a chromatic brawler, and an exclusive skin. There are also pins and extra quests to speed up your progression. This is worth about 1450+ gems, which is 8.7x value!
If you are new to Brawl Stars and you want to give yourself a huge boost right at the beginning, collect your gems for the Brawl Pass that will highly help your progression.
Next isToken Doublers.
Token Doublers were the most value before brawl pass came out. As you see above, buying a big box is 10 gems per Brawl Box. Buying a Mega Box is 8 gems per Brawl Box. Can you guess how many gems it costs for one Brawl Box using Token Doublers? 5! That is an extreme value compared to the Big Box and Mega Box. However, Brawl Pass is certainly a better choice.
By the way, Special Offers that are 30% off are always the good buys.
Rare Brawler Special Offers?
The last one I want to mention is the special offer that allows you to purchase a brawler with a certain number of Gems.
If you have the money and you think the brawler that you want to purchase with those gems is worth it, just go for it. It will help you push faster in total trophies and of course will help support the development of the game.
If you don’t have a ton of money, or you are not sure if it is worth it, then it really comes down to how patient you are or how badly you want that Brawler.
All it takes you to get one Legendary brawler is one lucky brawl box. It’s just a matter of time before you do actually get that Brawler. The chances are very good that by the time you completely max out your account, you will have unlocked every single brawler in the game including Legendary Brawlers from your regular Brawl Boxes.
So If you are not a heavy spender, It’s better to spend those Gems on the Brawl Pass or Token Doublers.
That will give you more Gold, Power Points, and a lot better skills in the game. And you also have the chance of getting that exact Brawler from the Brawl Boxes.
Also, if you want even more value out of Brawl Pass, of course, play a lot, but also wait a week after a new season arrives and there is a season pack which is $10 but have 170 gems and more value in it. However, if you are a F2P, buying the Brawl Pass is still an extreme value!
I hope you found this guide helpful. If you are F2P, try to avoid buying skins especially 30 gems one because they might have the least value you can get. It is also smart if you are skin2win, buy the skins when they are on a discount. Usually, 80 gems skin goes on a sale for 39 gems often. Unlike Clash Royale, Brawl Stars is very F2P supported due to the fact that the pass can be bought with gems, not only cash. Therefore, use the advantage of that and until next time, Peace!
