Brawl Stars: Best Brawlers to Play for Showdown Thousand Lakes Map

Solo Showdown (Thousand Lakes Map)

Quick Map Details:

Spawn Points

   - 8 are fairly placed near the corners while the other 2 will get easy access to the center area, which would sometimes spawn lots of boxes.

Boxes and Power Cubes

   - Fairly scattered across the map giving everybody a chance to get some Power Cubes. Good for brawlers that takes a lot of hits just to break boxes.
   - Memorize their locations to help you decide where to go early on. Watch the "Map Preview" right from the start to check the locations of the boxes.

Other Map Details

   - Obstacles are few, bushes are still great to use as a hiding place early on, but as the poison clouds closes in, there won't be enough, so brawl your way to the center area!
   - Notable objects here are those Cactus plants, use them to shield yourself from most attacks!

   - Team-Ups: Team-ups are somewhat common here which would make the match too long and annoying sometimes, so be careful. I won't recommend it, but if you want to team up, be careful as well.

Suggested Brawlers for Farming Trophies

Camper Mode (High HP or Survivability)

Brawl Stars - BullBrawl Stars - El PrimoBrawl Stars - FrankBrawl Stars - PamBrawl Stars - PocoBrawl Stars - Nita
   - Examples: Bull, El Primo, Frank, Pam, Poco (with ready Heal)Nita (with bear ready, best if Star Power unlocked) or other similar high HP brawlers.
   - Recommended Power Lvl: At least 6 or 7 for 380+ Trophies.

Your Aim (Quick Tips and Strategies)

   - Grab Power Cubes that you can and use all available bushes nearest to you (especially those at the sides early on) to keep yourself hidden.
   - Good hiding locations: Try to control any of those big patches of bushes, or hide in those straight line bushes outside of the center waters (you also have a wall fence protecting you from attackers located at the center which is good).

   - Survive until those poison clouds is about to reach those waters surrounding the center area.
   - Next, position yourself at the very corner in between those 2 cactus plants and use them as shield.

   - The one remaining at the center will likely get sandwiched, and would focus more on those that would enter the area. Hopefully, you won't get attacked by ranged Brawlers from the center while you are still standing between those 2 cactus plants (this is where teamers gets a bit annoying).

   - TIP: Allow yourself get trapped by the poison clouds to let everyone enter the center area first, forcing them to brawl each other, it's ok to take some hits from the poison cloud as long that you enter last (advantage of having high HP).
   - Defeat everyone while they have low HP.

   - For BullEl Primo including Darryl for example, you can use their Super to cross towards the center with minimal damages from the poison cloud, just time it well.

   - Your chances of getting top 3 using this method is pretty good, as long that you survive. Much easier if there are less campers like yourself to quickly thin out survivors early on, or if there are less than 3 teamers.
   - If you are losing more than winning because of these things, try to wait it out for a while to reshuffle competing players.

   - Poco is actually good to use and also a good counter against Shelly (just give him enough space). Kinda hard and challenging if there are lots of long-ranged brawlers though.

Aggressive Mode (Ranged Brawlers)

Brawl Stars - ColtBrawl Stars - BrockBrawl Stars - SpikeBrawl Stars - LeonBrawl Stars - Shelly
   - Ranged brawlers are also great here like Colt, Brock, Barley, Dynamike, Spike, Leon, and more including Shelly. Any ranged brawler will do as long that you can play them well and get 1st~5th place to farm trophies.
   - Recommended Power Lvl: At least 6 or 7 for 380+ Trophies.

Brawl Stars - PiperBrawl Stars - Crow
   - Piper and Crow are also great here because they can jump from those corners to the center area to avoid getting hits from the poison clouds. Best if you can let yourself trapped from the corner, then enter last if possible to let them fight first!

Brawl Stars - JessieBrawl Stars - Penny
   - Jessie and Penny's Super can be maximized here too!
   - Best if you can build up their Power Cubes to increase their stats, then control the center area later on with your turrets.

Your Aim (Quick Tips and Strategies)

   - Break boxes that you can and defeat enemies to build up your Power Cubes. Charge up your Super but don't harass them too much or they might chase you non-stop, unless you are confident that you can win against.

   - Avoid getting sandwiched or trapped, transfer quickly to a not so crowded area if needed.

   - Map Control: Control the area you are in to force other Brawlers to move away and disrupt other campers or players. Ambush players to trap them, or attack and sandwich brawlers that are being attacked.

   - Once those poison clouds closes in, either stay near the corners while nuking other Brawlers, before going in to the center area, or go near the center and defend your position (best if you were able to build up your Power Cubes).
   - Continue and accurately use your attacks to defeat incoming enemies.

Auto and Manual Aiming (Quick Tips)

   - Playing range brawlers needs player skill to aim well and hit your attacks, practice first if you like.

   - Never use auto aim from a far location trying to attack a moving target, it will likely miss. Use manual aiming and adjust your target line to where they are going (also depends on bullet speed).
   - TIP: For Colt that can do multiple hits per attack, it is best to also match the movement of your target after firing an attack, this would help land all hits.

   - Use manual aiming when scouting bushes as well, and move while shooting to cover more space. Recommended for attacks that dishes multiple bullets like Colt.
   - For single bullet attacks, use fast multiple attacks to scout bushes thoroughly (ex: Brock).
   - Note that hiding enemies can dodge your attacks if they are predictable, attack the same spot if needed.

   - Auto-aim is good for those that are running away from you, they usually run in a straight line. Also use if they are near and have no time to aim, or if they are running towards you.

Thousand Lakes Special Events:

Showdown and Meteor Shower

   - Meteor Shower is favorable to Campers because it would make the match much faster, just hope that luck is on your side that it won't hit your location while hidden.

   - It can also be a double edged sword for aggressive ranged Brawlers because it can disrupt their gameplay. Example: Getting hit would seriously put your squishy Brawler in trouble, but at the same time these can happen to your enemies giving you an easier time to nuke them out with just few hits.

Here's some quick tips and guide on how to survive and win Brawl Star's Showdown event mode (Feast or Famine Map), in the fast-paced multiplayer online battle arena mobile game app for Android and iOS players.

Brawl Stars: Best Brawlers to Play for Showdown Feast or Famine Map

Solo Showdown (Feast or Famine Map)

Quick Map Details:

Spawn Points

   - Located near the center of the map which is a bit risky for slow and squishy Brawlers because some players would chase them right from the start, especially those with higher move speed, range, or Power Lvl.
   - So move as soon as the battle starts.

Boxes and Power Cubes

   - A lot of them can be found at the center, surrounded by bushes so expect a brawl right from the start. Usually, the one that breaks them first, would most likely get ambushed due to lower DPS (fired shots), so be careful if you want to enter this zone.

   - Not all brawlers will get the chance to break boxes safely, depending on where you will spawn. You might need to steal them from other players, go to the center area, or play it safe and hide right away.

   - Memorize their locations to help you decide where to go early on. Watch the "Map Preview" right from the start to check the locations of the boxes.

Other Map Details

   - Use those long bushes located at the bottom most areas to hide and escape if needed, especially when you spawned near the lower area. Quickly go down and break the skulls that are blocking the way, then run towards the bushes, you can also continue and go left until you reach the bottom left corner, much safer).
Feast or Famine Hide 1

Suggested Brawlers for Farming Trophies

Camper Mode (All Brawlers)

   - Yup, this map can be played by any Brawlers, preferably those that can do decent damages during bush fights to make things a bit easier. Playing certain Brawlers requires player skill since they have their own strengths and weaknesses, learn their advantages and avoid Brawlers that is weak against (including your current upgrades).
   - Your aim here is to farm Trophies so getting 2nd~5th is totally fine.
   - Recommended Power Lvl: At least 6 or 7 for 380+ Trophies.

   - If you have patience, getting 10th, 9th, or even 8th isn't common here, unless unlucky and got chased early on. Another reason is because aggressive players will go to the center area right away to grab those Power Cubes, and would likely end up fighting each other or force someone to retreat with low HP.

   - TIP: If you find your matches somewhat toxic because of team-ups, or maybe most players are also camping - making it harder for you to farm trophies, try to play again after some time to reshuffle competing players.

Your Aim (Quick Tips and Strategies)

   - Grab Power Cubes that you can then/or quickly find a place to hide. Survive until there are only around 6 left, then go a bit aggressive or continue hiding.

   - Avoid getting sandwiched or trapped, transfer quickly to a not so crowded area early on if needed.

   - Once those clouds closes in (before it reaches those wide bushes), try not to stay at the sides of the available area because you'll get sandwiched pretty easily, and because your location is too close to the center, making you vulnerable from melee brawlers watching from the center.

   - If your next move is to enter the center area, you can use your attacks to clear your way before going in (don't spam reserve some bullets), or wait for someone from the inside to initiate a battle then quickly enter and hide, hopefully they won't spot you.
   - For ranged Brawlers, spam your attacks from different directions to force those that are hiding inside to move, and hopefully encounter and fight other Brawlers.
   - Luck is needed from here on depending on how many is left.


Aggressive Mode (Bush Fighters)

Brawl Stars - ShellyBrawl Stars - BullBrawl Stars - BoBrawl Stars - El PrimoBrawl Stars - Leon
   - Examples: Shelly, Bull, Bo (Star Power Unlocked), El Primo, Leon, and similar Brawlers.
   - Recommended Power Lvl: At least 6 or 7 for 380+ Trophies (the higher, the better).

Your Aim (Quick Tips and Strategies)

   - You have 2 options, either run straight to the center or gather some Power Cubes first (depends on enemy movements and preference).
   - Be careful when breaking boxes here because it is most likely that you'll get ambushed if there are enemies nearby. Use manual aiming to avoid hitting boxes or random areas while you are inside those bushes.
   - Move outside if you are at a disadvantage or if all boxes are gone, your choice, try to ambush and defeat other Brawlers to build up your Power Cubes.
   - Control the center, and the game is yours.

   - For Bull and El Primo, it would be best to run to the center asap to get Power Cubes and control the area. You have the upper hand this time because Shelly for example, doesn't have Super yet.

   - For Shelly, charge up your Super quickly while or before going to the center, use your Super wisely when fighting inside bushes (spam tap/click Super button (Yellow) instead of Normal Attacks (Red) to quickly execute).

   - Watch enemy movements to check who are coming inside, ambush them if you have the upper hand (best while they are breaking boxes to reduce their DPS), or wait for them to fight another Brawler, then jump in to kill them both while they have low HP.

   - Once those poison clouds closes in, look for an easy prey that are lingering near those wide bushes. This is also great for Shelly to charge Super, but be careful because your location will be exposed.
   - For Bo, use your Traps to protect your location, or to trap enemies that are about to enter the center bushes (best against squishy targets).

Aggressive Mode (Ranged Brawlers)

Brawl Stars - ColtBrawl Stars - Brock
Brawl Stars - PiperBrawl Stars - TaraBrawl Stars - SpikeBrawl Stars - Crow
   - Examples: Colt, Brock, Barley, Dynamike, Piper, Tara, Leon, Spike, Crow, and similar Brawlers.
   - Recommended Power Lvl: At least 6 or 7 for 380+ trophies.
   - Your aim here is to farm Trophies so getting 2nd~5th is totally fine.

   - Getting to the center early on is very risky because these guys are squishy, so focus on setting up ambushes or traps to defeat other Brawlers for more Power Cubes.

   - For Brawlers having a nice move speed and range is even better here because you can escape from melee Brawlers or easily chase targets.

Auto and Manual Aiming (Quick Tips)

   - Playing range brawlers needs player skill to aim well and hit your attacks, practice first if you like.

   - Never use auto aim from a far location trying to attack a moving target, it will likely miss. Use manual aiming and adjust your target line to where they are going (also depends on bullet speed).
   - TIP: For Colt that can do multiple hits per attack, it is best to also match the movement of your target after firing an attack, this would help land all hits.

   - Use manual aiming when scouting bushes as well, and move while shooting to cover more space. Recommended for attacks that dishes multiple bullets like Colt.
   - For single bullet attacks, use fast multiple attacks to scout bushes thoroughly (ex: Brock).
   - Note that hiding enemies can dodge your attacks if they are predictable, attack the same spot if needed.

   - Auto-aim is good for those that are running away from you, they usually run in a straight line. Also use if they are near and have no time to aim, or if they are running towards you.

Your Aim (Quick Tips and Strategies)

   - Grab Power Cubes that you can and try to charge up your Super early on. Don't harass them too much or they might chase you non-stop, unless you are confident that you can win against.

   - Avoid getting sandwiched or trapped, transfer quickly to a not so crowded area if needed.

   - Map Control: Control the area you are in to force other Brawlers to move away and disrupt other campers or players. Ambush players to trap them, or attack and sandwich brawlers that are being attacked.

   - Once those poisonous clouds closes in, and before entering the center area, spam your attacks from different directions to force those that are hiding inside to move, and hopefully encounter and fight other Brawlers.
   - Luck is needed from here on depending on how many is left.
Feast or Famine Hide 2
   - Optional: You can also use your Super to clear some of those bushes (good for certain brawlers like DynamikeColtBrock and more) to give you some more space or a hiding spot (isolate some bushes from the rest then hide there, so that melee Brawlers can't come near you easily).
   - Not effective against ranged though but attacking you would also reveal their position.

Feast or Famine Special Events:

Showdown and Life Leech

   - Life Leech event would stop all HP regeneration, and will take damage overtime instead (percentage of Max HP).
   - To regain some HP, you need to damage other brawlers, or at least take some Power Cubes. Defeating an enemy would also replenish your HP to max, so land your hits or hide really well.

   - This is really good for long ranged brawlers because they can easily harass their targets, just by landing 1 hit is already a problem for them here.
   - Brawlers that can heal especially Pam are also interesting to use here, even if their healing power for this event is reduced.

Showdown and Angry Robo

   - Overall, it's actually bad for Campers, because it would force other Brawlers to move and disrupt other Campers like you. Plus, it would also force strong enemies from the center to move outside giving you a hard time if you are unlucky.

   - TIP: If you have a good amount of Power Cubes, you can try and defeat the Robo to get more Power Cubes (either get chased and run around while attacking, or dive in and steal it once it's HP goes too low).

   - If being chased early on, you better be using a Brawler with good move speed to be able to shake it off. Just keep running until it redirects to other Brawlers or summons.

Brawl Stars: Best Brawlers to Play for Showdown Rockwall Brawl Map

Solo Showdown (Rockwall Brawl Map)

Quick Map Details:

Spawn Points

   - 2 players for every sides of the map forcing them to fight for Power Cubes. The other 2 will spawn at the center which is more advantageous if there are lots of Boxes.

Boxes and Power Cubes

   - Spawns randomly from those usual spots, even the center area can have a lot or with only few boxes. No corner boxes but 1 box may also spawn near those wide bushes.
   - Some Boxes located at the sides near those spawn points are somewhat covered with walls and skulls, be careful not to get trapped here when breaking these boxes, mind the incoming poison clouds.

   - Memorize their locations to help you decide where to go early on. Watch the "Map Preview" right from the start to check the locations of the boxes.

Other Map Details

   - Corner areas got some wide bushes, a nice place for melee Brawlers to hide early on. Other than that, bushes here are limited so scouting would be a bit easier. Lots of walls too, so expect Throwers to play here as well.
Brawl Stars - Rockwall Brawl Attack Through Walls
(TIP: Note that you can also attack through walls!)

   - Team-Ups: Team-ups are rampant here which would make the whole match so toxic that it is no longer ideal for solo players. Example: More than 2 Throwers teaming up together~lol. If this happens a lot, better avoid playing this map for now.

Suggested Brawlers for Farming Trophies

Camper Mode (Fast Breakers and Ambushers)

Brawl Stars - ShellyBrawl Stars - ColtBrawl Stars - BullBrawl Stars - El PrimoBrawl Stars - Leon
   - Examples: Shelly, Colt, Bull, El Primo, Leon, and similar Brawlers.
   - Recommended Power Lvl: At least 6 or 7 for 380+ Trophies.

   - Getting 10th or 9th place here isn't common unless you are too aggressive and careless. Also, if you find your matches too long because of campers, try to play again after a couple of minutes to reshuffle competing players.

Your Aim (Quick Tips and Strategies)

   - Grab Power Cubes as fast as possible because this map forces you to compete for Power Cubes.

   - Once you are done or most of the boxes are gone, quickly go to a safe area, preferably near the corners. Wait for ambush opportunities (for more Power Cubes) while hiding, or wait until there are only around 6 survivors left, before going a bit aggressive (better for ranged Brawlers).

   - Avoid getting sandwiched or trapped, transfer quickly to a not so crowded area if needed.
   - Moving from bushes to bushes can be tricky, so always watch enemy movements to learn when to move. Example: When they are no enemies nearby or while they are fighting.

   - Note: If there are too many Throwers, better stay hidden and let them do some of the killing.

Camper Mode (Range+HP)

Brawl Stars - NitaBrawl Stars - FrankBrawl Stars - Pam
   - Examples: Nita, Frank, Pam, and similar Brawlers.
   - Recommended Power Lvl: At least 6 or 7 for 380+ Trophies.

   - Here's some example Brawlers that you might also want to use.
   - Same strategy above.
   - Most of the time, the end game would be a 4 or 5 way stand-offs, so having a range and decent HP is an advantage. Plus, they would usually go and kill off low HP Brawlers first.

Aggressive Mode (Throwers)


   - This map can also be controlled by Throwers like Barley and Dynamike because of their advantage to throw attacks over obstacles, and most especially because of those team-ups!
   - Recommended Power Lvl: At least 6 or 7 for 380+ Trophies.

Your Aim (Quick Tips and Strategies)

   - Grab Power Cubes that you can and try to charge up your Super early on by harassing other Brawlers near those boxes.

   - Map Control: Control the area you are in to force other Brawlers to move away and disrupt other campers or players. Ambush players to trap them, or attack and sandwich brawlers that are being attacked.

   - Avoid getting sandwiched or trapped, transfer quickly to a not so crowded area if needed. Defeat high HP brawlers if possible because they might pose a threat later on.

   - Never use manual aiming to fight moving targets, especially melee Brawlers. Drop your attacks right behind you when being chased.
   - If you see or hear a Leon using his Super, start spamming attacks on possible paths he might take to get to you.

   - Once those poison clouds closes in to the center, use those obstacles to your advantage. Do not let anyone come near you, throw your bombs in between you and your enemy to fend them off, or to damage and kill them if they come nearer.
   - You have lower HP so they might target you first, so pick your fights well and quickly lower someone else HP.

Aggressive Mode (Multi Hitters)

Brawl Stars - JessieBrawl Stars - Penny
   -  I would also suggest Jessie and Penny here because of their ability to use boxes to attack enemies! Their normal attacks are also good against teamers since they love to stick together, but still be careful though because these guys are squishy.
   - Recommended Power Lvl: At least 6 or 7 for 380+ Trophies.

Your Aim (Quick Tips and Strategies)

   - Be aggressive, sneaky and use your attacks accurately.
   - Example: If you spawned near the sides, move away a bit until the immunity barrier disappears (to let them think you went away), then quickly go back to harass while hidden from those bushes, be careful though make sure that your target is going for the boxes first). Another way is to move and let them have the boxes, wait for them to come closer, then go back and spam your attacks (use manual aim if needed to target nearest box to the target).
   - Note: If you can sink all Penny's 3 attacks using a box, you can possibly instantly kill a Bull!

   - Once you are done or most of the boxes are gone, quickly go to a safe area, preferably near the corners. Wait for ambush opportunities (for more Power Cubes) while hiding, or wait until there are only around 6 survivors left, before going a bit aggressive.

   - Keep your turrets coming, best if there are only few Throwers to keep them safe. If there are too many Throwers, better stay hidden and let them do some of the killing.
   - If available, use your turrets as shield or when being chased to redirect their auto attacks.

   - Once those poison clouds closes in to the center, take cover and use your turrets to help you out. You have lower HP so they might target you first, so pick your fights well and quickly lower someone else HP.

More Tips For Jessie:

Brawl Stars - Rockwall Brawl Jessie Scout
   - Note that Jessie's normal attacks (after hitting a box or an enemy), will most likely bounce to the nearest enemy or box regardless if it's hidden or not, so use this to determine the locations of your enemies.

   - Example: The screenshot above shows that you can scout that wide bushes by only using 1 attack! If the bounce goes to the bushes, that means you have an enemy lurking inside, but if it bounces the other way, then you can safely hide there. Best done once the poison clouds kicks in to close the paths from the sides.
