Balance changes for 10 Brawl Stars characters hit the game this week. Find out everything that's new and changed in the September Brawl Stars updates. Player.One

Brawl Stars has been in soft launch for over three months now and while there’s no clear indication of if a global or, at the very least, Android release is anywhere on the horizon, the developers have been pretty busy the last couple of weeks tweaking and updating the game. Adding new characters, game modes, changes to Brawl Box rewards and more, Supercell continues to take suggestions and make improvements to make the game as fun as possible for everyone. Supercell has become notorious for the regular balance changes it brings to the characters in all of its games and Brawl Stars is no exception. In the latest update which rolled out just hours ago, players saw balance changes for 10 of the 18 available characters in the game. Below we’ve put together a brief overview of the latest balance changes, along with some details on other changes and new characters that have been added to the game this month.

Brawl Stars Balance Changes: Characters Getting Nerfed

Tara - A brand new character added to the game last week, the devs felt she was a bit “too strong” with her piercing attacks and spread. Her changes were as follows:

  • Decreased health from 800 to 700

  • Increased Reload time from 1.8s to 2.0s

  • Decreased range by 0.67 tiles

Bo - A real favorite in the game, the devs also felt this character’s four mines make him OP, as their push back often made them unavoidable. The following changes were made:

  • Decreased Mines from 4 to 3

  • Increased main Attack damage from 80 to 100

  • Decreased health from 900 to 800

  • Mine Pushback removed

Crow - a super rare character, but boy does he pack a punch. Finally, he’s seeing a downgrade.

  • Super charges slightly slower

  • Decreased main Attack range by 0.67 tiles

Mortis - Mortis is the most used Brawler in high-trophy games because of his quick movement in attacking and dashing away. He also received a nerf this cycle.

  • Movement speed decreased from 750 to 650 (equal to all Brawlers except Crow)

  • Super range decreased from 13.34 tiles to 10 tiles

Brawl Stars Balance Changes: Characters Getting Buffed

Pam - This is another brand new character to the game just announced last week. While I found this character interesting, I didn’t really see her as a threat. According to the devs, Pam is getting a buff to give her Healing Station more punch.

  • Super Heal Radius increased, and now heals 80 HP per second

  • Decreased main Attack reload time from 1.8s to 1.6s

  • Less spread in main Attack

  • Super charges in 20 hits instead of 21.

Colt - I love playing with Colt, but he’s been long overdue for a health buff. Here are his changes:

  • Increased health from 600 to 700

  • Decreased main Attack reload time from 1.5s to 1.25s

Richochet - this was another favorite of mine early in the game, but his low health stats made it hard to keep choosing him. His health buff has also been long overdue. Changes for Richochet include:

  • Increased health from 600 to 700

  • Decreased main Attack reload time from 1.25s to 1.0s

Dynamike - Increased health from 600 to 700


  • Increased health from 600 to 700

  • Main attack Rockets now fly 17% faster

Poco - I’ve never been a fan of Poco, though I’ve seen skillful players work well with him. His balance changes, however, seem warranted.

  • Main Attack damage increased from 140 to 160

  • Super healing increased from 400 to 460
