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

   - Cavern Churn
   - Dune Drift
   - Hot Maze
   - Skull Creek
   - Stormy Plains

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).

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 - BrockBrawl Stars - BarleyBrawl Stars - PiperBrawl Stars - TaraBrawl Stars - SpikeBrawl Stars - CrowBrawl Stars - Gene
   - Examples: Colt, Brock, Barley, Dynamike, Piper, Tara, Leon, Spike, Crow, Gene, 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 (No longer applicable!)

   - 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.
