Brawl Stars is the immensely popular battle arena multiplayer game that’s racked up five million players worldwide. Available on both Android and iOS, the main goal of the game is to battle up against other teams and be the winner. Battles take place in various arenas namely Gem Grab, Showdown, Brawl Ball and Bounty.

Players battle around in teams of three in various arenas. After every battle players receive tokens which fills up to unlock a Brawl Box. Players can upgrade their brawlers and equip them with Star Powers and Gadgets. These upgrades help the brawlers to improve their attack skills in the arena.
