Brawlhalla is quite similar to other freemium and gacha games in its class, but it still stands out in many ways.
Like most titles in the genre, you can play Brawlhalla for free and either grind or pay real money to get new skins and characters (called legends in this game).
What is so unique about it, however, is its gameplay. While other similar games revolve around party management, Brawlhalla, by its nature as a fighting game, adds player skill and familiarity to the mix.
Because of this, it’s common to dismiss tier lists for this game as irrelevant, but the truth is far from that. There is a running meta built around legends who have an advantage over others, regardless of player skill.
If you’d like to know how strong each legend is, or maybe you just want to choose or change your main, you’ve come to the right place.
Note: Munin has not yet been added to the list. We’ll add her in the next update so stay tuned!
Making The Tier List
We’ve taken several factors into account when making this tier list. Some of these include:
- Legend usage and win rates were consulted and they are consistent with the official Brawlhalla stats tracker.
- The list is geared towards ranked play instead of pros to cater to the majority of gamers who need help picking their main legend (the one they use the most).
- Brawlhalla’s weapon class system adds another layer of depth to each match. As such, each legend’s usable weapons are also listed beside them. This is to aid you in making your decision because different weapons carry different move sets.
These legends dominate in almost any situation and they have the win rates to prove it. Legends in this tier are so good because most of them are easy to learn and very rewarding to master.
It’s definitely worth your time to start using these legends in your matches.
|Legend||Weapon 1||Weapon 2|
These legends are really good, and there’s no notable weakness to them.
With enough practice, you can easily elevate these legends to the highest tier based on your skill, but they fall short by themselves.
|Legend||Weapon 1||Weapon 2|
|Lord Vraxx||Rocket Lance||Blasters|
We now move on to the slightly above-average ones in the list. Expect to put more time into practicing with these legends because they don’t offer any compelling advantages.
Still, if you put in the work, you’ll be able to get a lot of wins using these legends.
|Legend||Weapon 1||Weapon 2|
Expect to invest a lot of time mastering these legends. In fact, even then, you may not have as many wins as you’d like because of their underwhelming stats.
As such, we’d say it’s not worth investing time in these given the current meta.
|Legend||Weapon 1||Weapon 2|
You might want to wait for some significant buffs to these heroes before you decide to use them. They are not optimal for ranked play and the stats prove it.
|Legend||Weapon 1||Weapon 2|
|Sir Roland||Rocket Lance||Sword|
These legends are currently the worst in the game. Only use them for fun or if you want a challenge.
|Legend||Weapon 1||Weapon 2|
With this list and a lot of practice on your end, you are well on your way to being one of the better players in Brawlhalla.
Always remember that top-tier legends can only achieve their true potential if enough time has been invested in familiarizing their play style.

The Brawlhalla Tier List splits the legends in five tiers based on their success at Diamond. The tiers depend on the popularity and win rate of each legend.
This tier list is mostly based on the strength of each legend at the Diamond rank. I took into consideration the pick and win rate of all the legends in almost two million games played under patch 5.08.
The pro meta has limited or no influence on the tiers as I wanted to create something useful for us ranked players.
While the results at Diamond are the main source behind these tiers, I did not neglect completely the Platinum rank: the over 8 million matches played so far during the patch had a slight impact on the final distribution.
The list is not biased with personal opinions. Honestly, I was a bit surprised about the win rate of some legends at very high ranks, but I still organized the tiers strictly based on the data gathered.
Both the pick and win rate had a certain influence on the tiers. For example, a legend played by a large percentage of the player base, and that also achieved a high win rate, scored more points into this list than a less popular one with a similar win rate.
I believe that there isn’t an ideal tier list in Brawlhalla because the success of a legend depends on the environment (pro or ranked play), your rank, the opponents faced, your personal preferences and tactics.
However, I hope that my statistical-based approach is a good attempt to provide a reliable list for all the casual and ranked players.
I tried to create a layout as friendly as possible for newcomers by providing legend avatar, name, and weapons. The legends in the same tier are sorted in alphabetical order.
Asuri: Katar - Sword | Cross: Blaster - Gauntlet | Lucien: Katar - Blaster | Onyx: Gauntlet - Cannon | Queen Nai: Spear - Katar | Ragnir: Katar - Axe | Sentinel: Hammer - Katar | Sidra: Cannon - Sword | Vector: Lance - Bow | Volkov: Axe - Scythe | Xull: Cannon - Axe | Zariel: Gauntlet - Bow
Ada: Blaster - Spear | Artemis: Lance - Scythe | Barraza: Axe - Blaster | Caspian: Gauntlet - Katar | Cassidy: Blaster - Hammer | Gnash: Hammer - Spear | Jhala: Axe - Sword | Kor: Gauntlet - Hammer | Magyar: Hammer - Greatsword | Orion: Lance - Spear | Reno: Blasters - Orb | Sir Roland: Lance - Sword | Teros: Hammer - Axe | Ulgrim: Axe - Lance
Note: almost all the legends in tier 1 and 2 achieved a win rate above 50%. From tier 3 downwards there are mixed results.
Azoth: Bow - Axe | Ember: Bow - Katar | Jaeyun: Sword - Greatsword | Jiro: Scythe - Sword | Lord Vraxx: Blaster - Lance | Rayman: Gauntlet - Axe | Scarlet: Hammer - Lance | Teros: Hammer - Axe | Thatch: Sword - Blaster | Thor: Hammer - Orb
Brynn: Axe - Spear | Diana: Bow - Blaster | Fait: Scythe - Orb | Isaiah: Cannon - Blaster | Mirage: Scythe - Spear | Mordex: Scythe - Gauntlet | Nix: Scythe - Blaster | Petra: Gauntlet - Orb | Val: Gauntlet - Sword | Wu Shang: Gauntlet - Spear
Bödvar: Hammer - Sword | Dusk: Spear - Orb | Hattori: Sword - Spear | Kaya: Spear - Bow | Koji: Bow - Sword | Lin Fei: Katar - Cannon | Mako: Katars - Greatsword | Yumiko: Bow - Hammer

Brawlhalla is a free-to-play2D platformer fighting game developed by Blue Mammoth Games and Ubisoft for Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Steam, iOS, and Android, with full cross-play across all platforms. The game was shown at PAX East in April 2014, and went into alpha later that month. An open beta became available in November 2015, followed by the game's release in October 2017. As of October 2021, the game features 54 playable characters called "Legends", each with their own unique stats, loadout, and available cosmetic skins.
On March 5, 2018, Brawlhalla developer-publisher Blue Mammoth Games was acquired by video game publisher Ubisoft. As a result of this, Rayman, alongside two other characters from the franchise, were added to the game on November 6, 2018.[a] Brawlhalla was released for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One on the same day.
On July 6, 2018, Ars Technica released an article detailing precise player counts for Steam games obtained through a leak as a result of a "hole" in its API. This leak showed Brawlhalla to be ranked 24th in player count on Steam with a total of 8,646,824 players, out of all games featuring the Steam Achievements system. Ubisoft reported more than 20 million players by February 2019. As of March 2021, Brawlhalla boasts more than 50 million players.
In most of Brawlhalla's game modes, the goal is to knock one's opponent off the stage comparable to Super Smash Bros. This can be done by damaging them repeatedly. Damage can be seen on the color display around the opponent's character icon, which goes from white to red to black as the player continues to get hit. The closer the color is to red, the farther the player will be knocked back until they eventually get knocked out. Getting knocked off the stage will result in the player losing a life. Either the last player standing (the one who still has at least one life) or the player with the most points wins the match.
The game supports both local and online play. Competitive players can compete 1-on-1 to climb through the rankings. They can also find a partner to play against other duos to increase their collaborative rank in either the standard stock gamemode queue or a rotating queue that features a different gamemode each season.Brawlhalla also has several casual modes: Free-For-All, 1v1 Strikeout, Experimental 1v1, and a different featured mode every week. Free-For-All is a chaotic mode where 4 players knock each other out to gain points. In 1v1 Strikeout, players pick 3 characters which they play for 1 stock each. Experimental 1v1 allows players to test out upcoming features against each other. Custom games can be hosted online and locally, and they support up to 8 players per match, experimental maps, and region changing. You may join groups of your friends to create a clan, with multiple ranks within the clans. Clans are only available on PC. Clans gain experience from all members.
Brawlhalla features simple controls and one-button special moves. This allows new players to pick up the game quickly. Controls include movement keys and buttons for attacking, performing special moves, picking up or throwing weapons, and dodging. Keys can be rebound for keyboard and a large variety of controllers.
Players can move by running left and right and jumping. Players can perform quick dashes sideways while on the ground and dodges while in the air or on the ground, either sideways or vertically. It is also possible to dodge right after an attack to keep pressure on the opponent. Once in the air, the player has the option to perform any combination of three jumps, a directional air-dodge, a grounded move in the air by using a "gravity-cancel", and "fast-falling". It is also possible to hold on to the sides of stages, similar to the style in Mega Man X.
During a match, gadgets (which can be switched off in the ranked gamemodes) and weapon drops fall from the sky semi-randomly and can be picked up by the players. Although the weapon drop sprite has the appearance of a sword it turns into a corresponding weapon for the legend that picks it up. All of Brawlhalla's characters can use 2 weapons out of 13 to fight each other. Weapons include blasters, katars, rocketlance, sword, spear, cannons, axe, gauntlets, hammers, bow, scythe, orb, and greatsword. Blasters, rocket lance, bow, and spear perform well at a distance from the opponent, while katars and gauntlets are more effective up close. Rocket lance allows for quick traversal of the stage. Axe, cannon, greatsword, and hammer all do large amounts of damage. Sword, orb, and scythe are fast and low damaging. All characters have unarmed attacks, should they be disarmed. Gadgets like bombs, mines, and spike balls are also used. Weapons can also be thrown to interrupt the enemy's moves or to make it difficult for them to get back to the stage. Each character has 3 special or "signature" moves per weapon, for a total of 6 per character.
Four stats are assigned to each character: Strength, Dexterity, Defense, and Speed. The combination of these stats determines the strengths and weaknesses of a character and affects how they're played, and can be slightly modified using stances- which move a point from one stat to another.
Brawhalla is free-to-play, based on the freemium business model. The game offers 9 selectable characters to use for free from a weekly rotation, making it more accessible for newer players. This number of free rotation characters was increased from 6 in late-2018 to 8 in August 2020, likely as a result of how many new characters were added to the game by this time. There are currently 54 player characters, called "Legends" (as of October 2021). New characters generally were released every five weeks to a couple of months, but over time the rate of release has slowed to around 4 per year, likely due to Ubisoft's acquisition. To fully purchase characters, Brawlhalla offers an in-game shop, giving a chance for players to use the in-game currency earned through matches, daily missions, and level-ups. Alternatively, players can purchase all existing and future characters via a one-time transaction of $19.99.
Other products are also available to purchase here, using a premium currency called Mammoth Coins. This currency is gained by purchasing them with real money. Mammoth coins can be used for products such as character skins, podiums, KO effects, weapon skins, avatars, sidekicks, and emotes that can be used in matches. Since some characters share a weapon type, players can customize their characters with weapon skins from skins purchased with other character skins. Also in the shops are skin chests, being updated every day. These chests offer many of the skins purchasable within the shop at a discounted price while offering 2 to 3 skins exclusive to the chest. These chests cost 100 Mammoth Coins to purchase, and when purchased, the chest will randomly give the purchaser one of the skins offered.
Brawlhalla has also introduced a battle pass system with exclusive skins, emotes, and colors.
Brawlhalla introduced cross-play across all platforms on October 9, 2019. Cross-play allows players on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Android and iOS to queue against each other in online ranked play and to create custom lobbies which a player on any platform can join.
Brawlhallla contains various anti-cheats that are not specified by the developpers. Recently —as of October 2021— a new anticheat, EasyAntiCheat is being tested and the date of implementation is not revealed yet. Due to its incompatibility with some devices, it will not be needed for every game mode.
Many characters have skins that serve as crossovercharacters from other franchises. These characters can only be obtained through "mammoth coins" and not normal coins. The franchises and characters are as following:
|X-Ray and Vav||Mogar, The Mad King|
|Rivals of Aether||Ranno|
|Shovel Knight||Shovel Knight, Black Knight, King Knight, Plague Knight, Specter Knight, Enchantress|
|Rayman||Rayman,[a] Globox, Barbara|
|Hellboy||Hellboy, Gruagach, Daimio, Nimue|
|WWE||The Rock, John Cena, Xavier Woods, Becky Lynch, Macho Man, The Undertaker, Asuka, Roman Reigns|
|Adventure Time||Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum|
|Steven Universe||Stevonnie, Pearl, Amethyst, Garnet|
|Tomb Raider||Lara Croft|
|Ben 10||Four Arms, Diamondhead, Heatblast|
|The Walking Dead||Michonne, Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon, Maggie Greene, Negan|
|Kung Fu Panda||Po, Tigress, Tai Lung|
|Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles||Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo|
While minor events have been held by the community since its closed beta launch, Blue Mammoth Games now hosts their own official competitive events.
In May 2016, they led off with the Brawlhalla Championship Series or "BCX". It was a series of 21 weekly online tournaments starting on June 18. The tournaments were held on both North American and European servers, where players competed in 1v1 and 2v2 modes. For each tournament, a prize pool of $1,000 was divided among the top eight players. Placements in each BCS event earned players a ranking which was used at the end of the series to seed them into the World Championship tournament. Additionally, Regional Qualifier 1v1 tournaments were held, where the winner of each regional event earned a plane ticket and hotel room for the World Championship.
In early 2017, Blue Mammoth Games announced the Brawlhalla Circuit, a worldwide circuit of official competitive Brawlhalla tournaments hosted by several organizations sanctioned by Blue Mammoth Games. Players who compete in Brawlhalla Circuit events will be awarded Circuit Points. Players with the highest points from each region at the end of the season will earn a spot in the $100,000 32 player Brawlhalla World Championship in November. A player can also earn a spot in the Brawlhalla World Championship by winning a Regional Qualifier, or placing Top 3 in the BCX Open tournament at BCX.
At the start of 2018, Blue Mammoth Games announced their third year of official tournaments. This included a partnership with DreamHack to host 6 in-person tournaments throughout the year, including (for the first time) official tournaments in Europe. Additionally, over $300,000 in prizes throughout the year were announced. These prizes are earned through several major online tournaments, 4 official online seasonal championships, 5 in-person DreamHack tournaments, and the $100,000 2018 World Championship set to take place at DreamHack Atlanta.
In 2019, Blue Mammoth Games announced the fourth year of official Brawlhalla Esports. Continuing their partnership with DreamHack, they planned to host 5 in-person tournaments at their events throughout the year. In addition to DreamHack events, Brawlhalla also planned to host 4 more tournaments. These were to take place at Final Round 2019, CEO 2019, Low Tier City 7, and Shine 2019. In Brawlhalla Esports, CEO 2019 was dubbed the "Midseason Championship" and had an increased prize pool of $50,000 while other in-person events (aside from the World Championship) had a prize pool of $20,000. The World Championship was set to have a prize pool of $100,000, similar to the previous two years.
In more recent competition the Brawlhalla Pro Series (North America) is a weekly event that started April 9, 2019 and ended May 4, 2019. The competitions held consisted of Crew Battles (every Tuesday) and Rotational 2v2s (every Thursday) these competitions or sets (In Brawlhalla Terminology) are played by 8 color coded teams. These teams are, The Black Team, The White Team, The Orange Team, The Green Team, The Red Team, The Blue Team, The Purple Team and The Pink Team. The Brawlhalla Pro Series (Europe) was announced after the end of the North American Pro Series in the same Twitch stream.
In 2020, Blue Mammoth Games announced the fifth year of Brawlhalla Esports with the Brawlhalla World Tour. This was later shifted to an online-focused competition due to the global pandemic and all tournaments for the year had their prize pools increased.
2016 World Championship
The Brawlhalla World Championship is an official $50,000 tournament held by Blue Mammoth Games at their end of the year event, BCX (Brawlhalla Championship Expo). There were over 400 people in attendance. Developers, streaming personalities, community artists, esports fans, and competitors all came together for a weekend of Brawlhalla fun.
The event took place at the Cobb Galleria in Atlanta in the United States. Players from around the world competed locally from November 11–13. The World Championship was separated into two separate open tournaments (1v1 and 2v2), each of which had a prize pool of $25,000, adding up to a grand total of $50,000. The first 1v1 World Championship title was won by Zack "LDZ" Janbay, and the first 2v2 World Championship titles were won by Diakou "Diakou" Staee and Tyler "Twilight" Whitaker.
2017 World Championship
The Brawlhalla World Championship became an annual event in 2017, running for its second year. Set up as the finale to the Brawlhalla Circuit, the format was a hybrid invitational/open tournament where 24 of the Top 32 bracket slots were assigned to players around the world that performed the best in official competitions throughout the year, while the remaining 8 slots were up for grabs in the open World Championship tournament.
The prize pool was doubled to a total of $100,000 split evenly between the 1v1 and 2v2 competitions. The event once again took place at the Cobb Galleria in Atlanta in the United States where players from around the world competed locally on November 3–5. Notably, the 2016 1v1 World Champion Zack "LDZ" Janbay won again for the second year in a row, while the 2v2 championship was won by Zack "Boomie" Bielamowicz and Ngwa "Remmy" Nforsi.
2018 World Championship
The 3rd annual Brawlhalla World Championship was announced in the beginning of 2018. It was an open tournament with players being seeded based on official tournament power rankings. It took place on November 16–18 inside DreamHack Atlanta. Similar to the 2017 World Championship, there was once again a prize pool of $100,000 split evenly between 1v1 and 2v2 tournaments. The championship was played alongside tournaments of other popular fighting games, such as Super Smash Bros. Melee, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Tekken 7, and more. The 1v1 World Championship title was claimed by Stephen Myers, known as "Sandstorm" and the 2v2 World Championship title went to Jonatan "Cake" Övragård and Aleksi "Addymestic" Sillanpää of Team PHZ.
2019 World Championship
The 4th annual Brawlhalla World Championship took place at DreamHack Atlanta once again. Similar to 2018, it was a $100,000 open tournament with players being seeded based on official tournament power rankings. The prize pool was split evenly between 1v1 and 2v2, $50,000 each. This tournament had more active entrants than any in-person Brawlhalla tournament before. The 1v1 World Championship was won for a second time by Stephen "Sandstorm" Myers, and for the first time, the 1v1 winner also won the 2v2 World Championship - alongside his teammate Zack "Boomie" Bielamowicz.
2020 World Championship
The 5th annual Brawlhalla World Championship was shifted to an online competition for each of the five main regions of the game due to the global pandemic. The $204,000 prize pool was split between 1v1 and 2v2 among five regions. With the prize pool from the World Championship over $1,000,000 has now been awarded to players. The North American 1v1 World Championship was won for a third time in a row by Stephen "Sandstorm" Myers, and the 2v2 World Championship title went to "Sandstorm" alongside his teammate "Boomie" for the second time in a row.
Kotaku summarized that "Brawlhalla is a dynamic take on platform brawler that feels good to play." They said that the best innovations to the platform brawlers before it are its jumps and wall movements. Three jumps and nearly unlimited wall scaling make for fresh strategies and the buff in mobility means a lot of the high-adrenaline action happens off-stage.Push Square stated that while it is not quite as tightly designed as the seminal Super Smash Bros., the large roster, wide range of modes, and a reasonable level of depth help it achieve a similar balance of accessibility and challenge, scoring it at 7 out of 10.

Between me Lenka, the relationship has now become not like between brother and sister, but somehow closer, so to speak. She began to treat me differently, not as a brother, but as her boyfriend. The most important thing is that not a single living soul except us knew about this. As a result, desire then overcame the taboo, and that case became key for the development of our new further relations.
While Volai was writing down the address, I furtively, in a couple of glances, examined her again. It may not be quite decent, but not for a futanari. So what if she is skinny, like a boy, and her facial features are rough for a girl. And, for example, the frequent chitinous shields that covered her body did not spoil the impression at all. And the most important thing is that the "ant" is simply the sweetest soul man.Sandstorm vs wrenchd - Grand Finals - Brawlhalla World Championship 2018 1v1
I understood that I had made the woman pleased, and therefore I was not afraid for what I had done, so to speak, rape. Anyone knows that a woman is drunk, a stranger's pussy. And that means the one who finds it.
