Brawl Stars is perfect for gamers who love violence and adorable characters

Brawl Stars is a brilliant twin-stick shooter, specialising in three-on-three PvP combat. There are over 30 characters to collect, each of which has its own unique weapons, gadgets, and super attacks. If you are yet to download Brawl Stars and try it out for yourself, read this guide and you’ll be gathering trophies in no time.

Brawl Stars is one of games that is difficult to put down. There are dozens of maps, over 30 playable characters, and multiple game modes. To add to your fun, the maps and game modes are on a cycle, keeping you entertained every 24 hours. If that’s not enough for you, Supercell is on season two of its Brawl Pass, so now is a glorious time to get some free loot.

For those of you who don’t know, Brawl Stars has been on our mobile devices for just over three years now. This may put some people off playing, but it shouldn’t. The gameplay has never been more polished, the matchmaking has never been fairer, and the updates keep on coming.

Everything in our Brawl Stars guide:

Brawl Stars Download: How to get on ios and android

Downloading Brawl Stars on your mobile device is easy, and best of all: it’s free. If you have an Android device, you can grab a copy from Google Play. Or, if you have an iOS device, you can download Brawl Stars from the App Store.

Brawl Stars PC: How to play on the big screen

If you want to play Brawl Stars on your PC, you will need an emulator. Two emulators you can trust for playing Brawl Stars are Memu Play and BlueStacks. To play on the big screen, download an emulator, search for Brawl Stars, then hit download.

Brawl Stars Youtube: Where can you watch Brawl Stars?

If you didn’t already know, the official Brawl Stars YouTube channel is regularly updated with short animations or update videos.

Brawl Stars Online: Can you play multiplayer?

Brawl Stars is an online-only mobile game. You can’t play the game without an internet connection, because you are playing against other people from across the world. You can play training games against bots, but you need an internet connection to load the game. You can create a club and invite your friends if you want to play together.

Brawl Stars Hack: Can you download a Brawl Stars Mod?

We strongly recommended that you don’t download any modified or hacked version of Brawl Stars. They are not to be trusted because they often ask for your personal information. I know everyone wants the legendary characters, but it’s an excellent life lesson: you can’t always get what you want, without paying.

There are a number of golden rules that if you break, will result in a ban. If you want to check out the rules, visit the official Supercell fair play site.

Brawl Stars Free Gems: Should you trust websites?

When something is too good to be true, it almost always is. A website offering legendary characters, gems, or coins is not to be trusted: ever! The only legitimate free way to get gems in Brawl Stars is to earn them in the battle pass. You also can buy them from the shop.
