Types of Game Modes in Brawl Stars

Brawl Stars features many game modes, like more than 15 modes, with interesting & exciting gameplay and objectives. Each mode has its unique challenges & fun. We can also categorize them into multiple types as follows:

  • Trophy Game Modes

  • Special PvE and PvP Events

Trophy Game Modes

Trophy game modes reward you with trophies to reach the highest leagues on the trophy road. You can earn trophies with each brawler to collect more trophies. Each brawler has their independent trophy tiers, and your league in the trophy road is the collection of all the trophies of all your brawlerYouyou will be matched against the same trophy-tier play when playing with new brawlers. Below are the trophy game modes:

The player will drop all the carried gems when killed. Once a team gets 10 gems or more, the timer will start and the team has to defend the gems until the timer hits zero. 

Brawl Ball

A football match between two teams, each with 3 brawlers. Use your Super, Gadgets, and unique attack styles along with your football skills to score two goals before the other team. The match will last for 2 minutes, 30 seconds.

A pure player-killing mode. Go and get as many stars as you can with your teammates by killing your opponents. When a player kills an opponent, his bounty increases by one star, up to 7 stars. Killing a high-bounty player rewards you with more stars. At the start of the match, there will be a blue tiebreaker star in the center. If both teams have the same number of stars at the end of the match, then the team with the blue star will win.

Players can kill them to collect trophies and then hunt other players to get their trophies. When the half of players are left or the end timer starts, the portals open. Players can use these portals to escape from the hunt. 

Ranked Mode

The ranked mode comes with its leagues, completely apart from the trophy road. Playing in the ranked mode doesn’t give you brawler trophies, but rank points to climb higher leagues. The leagues are from bronze to legendary leagues. What’s so special about this mode is its special modifiers and random modes.

It features all the game modes from the trophy road. But unlike trophy modes, you can’t select any specific mode in ranked. A random mode will be selected with a modifier. Timed detonation, quickfire, and big friend are the modifiers only available in ranked matches. The first modifier destroys certain obstacles after every 5 seconds until none is left. The big friend modifier increases all the teammates’ HP to the maximum HP brawler on the team.

Special PvE & PvP Game Modes

From time to time, Brawl Stars features some special game mode events. These events are purely for fun and don’t contribute towards trophies or ranks. Some of the events are as follows:

Robo Rumble

It’s a PvE mode where a team of 3 brawlers will defend a safe from the robots’ attacks. There will be a total of 9 waves, each wave with a different number & type of robots. A boss robot will spawn in the 4th wave. The match will last for 2 minutes. Until then, you will have to defeat all the incoming robots and defend the safe. Each time you win a match, the difficulty level will increase from normal, hard, expert to master, and insane 1-16. 

Big Game

It’s a 1v5, PvP mode. Five players with their normal brawlers will fight against one player with a big enhanced brawler. The big brawler has high HP, Damage, movement speed, and reload speed. However, he can’t regenerate their HP naturally and his healing abilities will be greatly reduced. The match will last for 2 minutes. If the player with a big brawler survives for 2 minutes, then he will win. Other players will win by defeating the big brawler in 2 minutes. 

Boss Fight

Another PvE mode but with no time limit. A team of 3 players will fight against a boss robot. You will win the match by defeating the boss robot. But it will not be so simple. The boss robot can use various types of attacks, summon robots, and also enhance himself with anger and rage at higher levels. The difficulty level increases from normal to insane 16 after every victory, increasing the Boss’ HP & damage. 

At first, it only uses melee attacks, shoots rockets, and summons small robots. But as you progress to higher levels, it charges toward you, breaking everything in its path, starts shooting lobbed rockets that engulf the area in flames, dealing continuous damage, and gets furious, increasing its damage & speed. It also gets enraged at Insane 2 difficulty and its normal rockets also pierce through walls. 

Eliminated players can resurrect as long as any one player is alive. The match will be over when no player remains alive.
