Brawl Stars Best Starting Characters Guide

Here I have listed basic character tiers and a brief introduction of that character so that it is easy for you to understand about the characters. Every character has one exclusive weapon and an ultimate skill.

Brawl Stars Best Starting Characters and Tier List

S Tier Characters

El–Primo – Tank
El–Primo is a tank and deals massive damage when he uses his special power. It is good for running away as well if you are low on health. It is not an easy feat to run away from an El – Primo.

Barley – Mixed
Barley has great character control, his special deals great damage with his ultimate shot. His attack is also good to stop enemies from getting gems from the center.

A Tier Characters

Nita – Fixed
Nita is an excellent all-rounder. She has great defense and a great offence. Direct confrontations are not recommended with her as she will lose often but direct confrontations are very rare.

Jessie – Fixed
She has more defensive characters than offense. Her gun is a decent weapon and can annoy your enemies a lot and it does a decent amount of damage with each shot.

Poco – Support
Poco is an easy to use hero, his basic attack is very simple to use and it hardly misses. Poco is a little hard to use in 1v1 battles and the best way to tackle him is with a coordinated team.

Shelly – Support
The default characters for newcomers and she is pretty basic to use. With a decent amount of damage and an average ultimate, she is a good starting character.

B Tier Characters

Colt – Support
Colt is a long range character and is pretty decent one. Good all-rounder but only flaw is that his ultimate is narrow and can be easily dodged.

Dynamike – Support
Dynamike is very annoying if the enemy team has it. Pretty useless in confrontations, his real strength comes when he hides behind a wall and chucks dynamites at the enemies. 1v1 is only possible to win when Dynamike’s special is activated.

C Tier Characters

Bull – Tank
Bull is a very weak character. His gun has a very low range which turns it useless in most fights and his special is also not powerful enough. You will be wishing for wonders while fighting with Bull.

Brawl Stars Best Starting Characters

This section of the guide will tell you which brawlers are the best to start the game with. There are total 15 characters in the game but here I will give the 6 best brawlers to start the game with.

Shelly
Shelly is the first character that every newcomer will play with. She is a decent and balance ranged brawler with 800 HP points. Her per hit damage is 80 and her long range shot has a decent spread. Her super does 80 damage per shell. All her hits have spread damage which is very useful for crowd control. Her ultimate also has a knockback effect which is a good option when you’re low on health and want to run away from melee enemies.

Colt
Colt is one of the most fragile brawlers of the game with only 600 HP. However, his plus points are that he is a long-ranged gunner and he can fire 6 bullets in rapid succession. Colt’s ultimate requires precision and a stationary enemy to be fully effective. It is same as the normal attack but is a buffed up version. More bullets, more impact but the enemy is not a stationary tree. Best way to use this power is to somehow force the enemy in a linear path where he cannot around too much. His per bullet damage is 80 and in ultimate each bullet also does 80 damage.

Brock
Brock is also one of those fragile heroes who are very good at long-ranged attacks. Brock will absolutely own the enemies at long-range. His rocket does heavy damage and it will do it at quite a safe distance. If an enemy manages to reach Brock up close, he will very likely die as he is pretty weak in 1v1.

Brock has total 600 HP, attack damage of 200 per rocket while in super each rocket will deal a total of 260 damage to the enemy. Best used in large maps with easy access to long clear paths. Not recommended for tight and close quarter maps. His super can not only deal massive damage but can also block to way for strategic implementations.

Nita
Nita looks like a small girl with a teddy bear hat but she is actually an attacker bear called Big Baby Bear. She has 800 HP with 160 damage per hit. Her ultimate is a big bear which deals100 damage and has a total 1200 HP. Her normal attack sends a shockwave right in front of her at a short distance. Her shockwaves go through normal enemies and they can hit other enemies as well. This causes the super to charge at a much faster speed.

El Primo
El Primo is one of the best brawlers in the game. He has massive health, 1300 HP and damage per fist is 80 while his super does 200 damage. His massive health and extreme mobility makes him a very good tank. His super also increases his mobility which makes it even more easier to get up close and personal and punch your enemies. El Primo is best used in close quarters however his increased mobility can make sure he crosses fields quickly and reaches enemies pretty easily. His damage stats are per punch while his super makes him more mobile.

Bull
Bull is lighter and faster than El Primo but is also a good tank. He has a large amount of health that is 1200 HP and his super allows him move at insane speeds. Good stats for a tank. He bulldozes everything in his path that allows him to overpower nearly everything in its way. His shotgun has a good spread damage and a decent range and he also has a fan shaped damage which deals area damage to nearby enemies.
