Brawl Stars Tier List v10.0 by KairosTime (Detailed Explanation)
Nita replaced Darryl as the golden S tier Brawler for Gem Grab.
Nita got a lot of good things going for her in Gem Grab.
She’s got good range, health, ridiculously fast reload speed and her ability to push enemy Brawlers back with her super, making her a very prevailing control option as a melee Brawler.
She’s also an excellent option to synergize with the new jump pads.
Tara is moving from the A tier up into the S tier.
The biggest reason why Tara is actually coming up into the s tier is that with the recent nerfs to a lot of the Brawler, they forced her to use her super before she was ready to.
She’s able to save her super until it really counts allowing her to completely turn the tide of the match in Gem Grab.
Darryl is actually moving from the golden S tier position number one and Gem Grab down to the A tier.
The nerf to his auto reloading super means that he is not nearly able to pose as much of a threat as he was in the past.
This actually leads to a loss of early game control, which makes it difficult for him to recover.
Mortis is also moving from the S tier down into the A tier, due to the fact that he received a 22% healing decrease to his star power.
Mortis can no longer just stay on the field permanently and that makes him less of an “immortis” as some may have called him in the past.
Leon is also moving from the S tier down into the A tier. That’s right guys it is no longer the assassin meta.
He had another hit to his damage. And since he does operate a lot through burst damage, he actually suffers from a lot of vulnerability after using his attacks, if the enemy Brawler is not taken out.
This led to Leon being less of a favorable option for players.
Poco is also moving from the S tier down into the A tier since a lot of the aggressive Brawlers are less of a viable option.
Poco is also less viable because he relies on those aggressive Brawlers for his super to be impactful. This makes the S tier Pam a much better option in most situations.
Barley is actually moving from the B tier up into the A tier.
It is because the aggressive Brawlers were nerfed and Barley’s attack damage was buffed, making Barley a much more powerful control option.
We also have Bull and El Primo moving from the non-ranked up into the B tier, because they are solid options on maps with jump pads. And one thing about the B tier is that these are for Brawlers that are good with either a specific map or a specific team.
Gene is also starting up in the B tier.
He has some conflicting abilities like the fact that he can’t do enough damage as a Brawler that relies on being able to hook people close to him so he can burst them down.
His one redeeming trait is that his super can take a gem carrier and bring it onto your side of the map, solidifying a victory for you guys, but that’s not nearly as easy to do for Gene as it is for Tara.
Therefore he’s being placed in here as a good option if you have the right team comp for it.
As you can tell some of these Brawlers have little badges next to them if they’re considered to be some of the best Brawlers for a specific event mod. This is due to the fact that we no longer have an option between regular showdown and event mod showdown.
Typically healing mushroom is best for Brawlers with high DPS that are also close range. Robots spawn benefits Brawlers that have high DPS. Energy Drink benefits Brawlers that are really good at controlling a specific location, or they have significant DPS or attacks that are really easy to land once they get that energy drink. Of course, meteor shower benefits longer range Brawlers that can stay clear of other players.
Moving from the S tier down into the A tier, he’s just not dominant on all of the maps like he has been in the past and he is definitely not a favorable option to team with.
If you’re playing competitive showdown that means that he will be targeted very frequently by others.
Rico is moving from the B tier up into the A tier.
He has sufficient DPS and is potential to poker and corners that does allow him to do well on the right map with the right skill.
Barley is also moving from the B tier up into the A tier.
This is simply due to the fact that he’s getting increased damage that allows him to more easily deal with the threats of Solo Showdown.
Gene is also being moved up into the A tier.
The fact that Gene has a longer range attack means that he’s able to deal with threats from a distance.
On top of that, he can also use his super to pull Brawlers up close to him for a very quick and easy kill regardless of walls.
We also have Shelly moving down into the B list.
A lot of this is due to the fact that a lot of the more aggressive Brawlers have become less of a viable option.
That means they need to be countered less frequently and so she’s just less useful in Solo Showdown and no one is gonna team with Shelly.
Piper was removed from the tier list. This is due to the fact that she’s just too vulnerable to close up Brawlers and the fact that the stop of the spin initiative is helping a little bit.
People are backstabbing a little bit more and making her struggle a little bit when she teaming with people.
One thing to note with Piper is that she although is not competitive on regular showdown, if she is on meteor shower or if she’s on energy drink then she can be a competitive option.
The same is also true with Poco on Energy drink.
Once again a nice reminder, if you do have a Brawler that has one of those badges next to it and you’ve got a specific event mode going on with them, they might be worth playing even if they’re not the highest ranking for the tier list.
He is going from the A tier up into the S tier.
In Solo Showdown, Barley struggles against those aggressive type Brawlers, but with a teammate in Duo Showdown, he’s able to overcome those aggressive Brawlers much easier.
He’s able to deal damage to Brawlers from a long distance away, making him such an incredible option.
Also moving up into the S tier is Crow.
It is because of the fact that his poison helps to prevent healing enemies and also helps to protect against crucial susceptibility from enemy teams. His recent buff wasn’t super strong but it was just enough to justify bringing him up into the S tier.
Rico also moving up to S tier.
This is due to his great damage output and range, which does make him very versatile on many maps.
Bull got into the A tier list.
That is because he’s able to zone enemies out of grass and away from boxes.
He can also establish an area for his teammates who have longer range than him to operate optimally.
Gene is being added into the A tier.
His super provides a lethal opportunity to isolate one enemy into a 2v1 situation, which is what Gene is the best at.
Bull’s taking Darryl’s position as the golden S tier Brawler for Heist.
Both Darryl and Bull are really fantastic options in Heist.
One thing is that Darryl recently got a nerf and that means he’s not able to be super around the safe as frequently as he used to be and Bull has just so much more of a threat.
He has more DPS, he has more health, he’s an absolute beast in Heist and definitely deserves that golden S tier.
Barley’s also moving up into the S tier.
Throwers have always been really powerful in Heist.
It’s due to their control that they offer and also the fact that they can build damage while hiding behind the safe and walls. And a buff is just what Barley needed to move from A up into the S tier.
Brock is also moving up into the S tier.
Brock represents the most dominant ranged threat in Heist.
He can deal massive amounts of damage with his regular attack and once he turns up his super, he can deal tons of damage to enemy Brawlers and the Heist safe at the same time.
Colt is moving from the S tier down into the A tier.
He simply just overshadowed by Brock. He has less range, and it’s more difficult to for him to land his shots.
She’s definitely one of those Brawlers that have been considered underrated in previous meta.
Now more and more people are recognizing how strong she actually can be when going on the offence or going on the defence.
The fact that you only have to hit one Brawler to bounce off two other Brawlers or possibly even the enemy safe, means that she has one of the highest DPS in the game.
That makes her a very strong option even if you do not have her star power though that does make her even stronger.
He is up into the A tier now.
He’s certainly not as strong as Bull or Darryl but he’s still a great option, due to the fact that he has a large amount of health and you can jump onto the enemy safe. It provides a great opportunity for your team to really push and take out the safe.
Spike is down to the B list.
While he is still a good option, the fact that we have more prevalence of throwers including Barley and Dynamike making him too vulnerable because he has a difficult time dealing with them.
He used to do really well at supporting some friendly tanks on his team and those are becoming a little bit less prevalent, due to the long range nature of Heist now and that makes him more team dependent which is definitely justifiable.
Leon is going down to the B tier.
It is due to the fact that his DPS nerf was just enough for him to drop down against enemy tanks because he’s not able to deal with them on a close-range like he used to be able to.
Piper is also being removed from the competitive Heist tier list due to the fact that we have throwers like El Primo, that are so prevalent.
In the meta Piper is almost guaranteed to come within close range combat of an enemy Brawler.
She suffers a lot defensively when an enemy player is doing a push against her and the fact that she has such a slow reload speed just makes her a very poor option overall in Heist.
Spike from the S tier is replacing Darrel as the golden S tier Brawler for Brawl Ball.
First of all Darryl’s not quite as good in Brawl Ball as he used to be due to his nerf, second of all Spike is just so incredibly dominating across all Brawl Ball maps.
His range, DPS and the fact that his super creating great opportunities for your team to push are all making him a solid option in Brawl Ball.
Darryl’s going from the golden S tier position down into the A tier.
The fact that his super got nerfed means that he’s going be able to use it less frequently.
While he still is an incredibly strong a Brawler for Brawl Ball, he’s not nearly powerful that he used to be especially because he really struggles against some of the more control type comps like Tara, Spike and Nita.
We also have Poco moving from the A tier down into B tier.
The fact that some of these more aggressive Brawlers have been nerfed means that Poco is just less impactful. He definitely requires a more specific comp.
Shelly is also moving to the B tier.
Most of this is actually due to the fact that Darryl got a nerf.
Because Shelly acted as a really strong counter against Darryl and with less Darryl’s being played in Brawl Ball, there’s less of a need to play Shelly there.
Gene is being added into the B tier of Brawl Ball.
He is kind of like a lesser version of Tara.
He does less DPS but he can pull one Brawler away from a specific location from a very long range away and he can also use them to break walls.
So, he definitely deserves at least to be on the Brawl Ball tier list but most of the time you’re better off going with Tara.
Brock is going from the S tier replacing Mortis as the golden S Brawler for Bounty.
This is partly due to the fact that Mortis received a nerf and that other assassin type of Brawlers are no longer as prevalent as they were.
It’s also partly due to the fact that Brock is just an incredible Brawler for Bounty.
He has been in the golden S Brawler position in the past and definitely deserves it now.
Pam’s moving up from the A tier up into the S tier.
She is versatile as a long-range Brawler, as a tank, as a support healer, as a shield to protect teammates.
She is so great in long-range comp and in aggressive comp.
Piper is in the S tier now.
A lot of this is just due to the fact that these aggressive assassin Brawlers have become less prevalent and they were really good counters against Piper.
So she’s definitely sitting high as the queen of Bounty now.
Penny’s also moving up into the S tier.
What she lacks up in strength, she makes up with Lenny. That’s right guys Penny stirrup, we’re gonna go with Lenny. Lenny prevents enemy camping, forces players to come out from hiding behind walls and because she has a respectable range, she definitely deserves that S tier position.
Mortis’s moving from the golden S position down to the A tier.
Like I mentioned, his nerf makes him less prevalent.
It’s a lot more difficult for you to can to maintain aggression like he used to have.
Darryl’s also moving from the S tier to the A tier.
The fact that his supercharged is slower means that he has fewer opportunities to use it and get up close to counter those long-range Brawlers.
These poor assassin Brawlers they got hit hard.
His damage nerfs made it a little bit more difficult for him to really feel at a distance, which makes it all so difficult for him to charge up his super over a long period of time. He’s just not nearly as strong as he used to be.
Poco is moving from the A tear down into the B tier.
Bounty has shifted from an aggressive meta where Poco thrived to a meta where Poco doesn’t really have as much of opportunities.
He’s still good if you have the right team comp.
Spike is moving from the B tier to the non-rank tier.
Spike just lacks the HP and the consistent damage output from a distance to really thrive well in Bounty and he’s just not as good as we thought.
After we did some playtesting on maps with friendly matches and stuff, we’ll go over just a quick few changes.
Pam actually taking Jessie’s spot as the golden S tier Brawler.
Now there was a lot of debate between the pros regarding which Brawler should have that number one position for Siege and it was really close.
Ultimately, we decided to go with Pam over Jessie, because of the prevalence of throwers that do such a good job at countering Jessie’s turret.
We also decided to move Bull from the A tier up into the S tier.
Bull is able to completely position Brawlers and keep them pushed back without even having to fire a shot because they just cannot get up close to him.
He has the greatest diving potential out of all of the Brawler.
He is also being able to do 31% damage to an enemy IKE turret by himself and his high damage against enemy bots makes him a very strong option.
Brock is going from the B tier up into the A tier.
A lot of this is due to the fact that Brock can actually outrange the IKE turret.
While he isn’t dominant on all of the maps, he does have that unique ability to reshape the map into an arranged playground, allowing him to be a solid option.
We also decided to move Gene from the non-competitive tier up into the B tier.
Gene really struggles with having a really low DPS but we did discover that he does have at least some viability.
He can be able to pull enemy Brawlers into his turret area so that they get taken out, as well as, he can actually remove the robot from close up to the IKE turret to the outer perimeter which means that the IKE will then quickly target other enemy Brawlers.
He has really low DPS but if you’re playing him with a really good team comp of other S tier players then he does serve somewhat of a purpose.
Mortis is up into B tier.
It really comes down to the fact that he has really high mobility and being able to pick up those bolts.
But he lacks in almost every other area of Siege so he does require two teammates on his team with high DPS that are able to control the center and if you have that, Mortis can be a very solid option.
Overall Brawl Stars Tier List
We took every single brawler tier in every single game mode and we gave them a certain number of points according to how they ranked in each of those game modes.
- If they were non ranked = 0 rank
- B tier = 1 point
- A tier = 2 points
- S tier = 3 points
We added all of the points together and ranked them from lowest to highest just based off their value.
This overall tier list is as accurate as possible with as little bias as possible.
Tier List Video
Generally, more Brawlers are becoming more viable in more game modes.
Part of it is because Supercell is doing the balance changes. Another very big part of it is the way they adding a lot more different types of maps to game modes that tended to have specific meta.
