In case you missed it, last week Supercell dropped their big May update for the mega popular Brawl Stars.
The Clash of Clans developer have beefed up their mobile battler with new content and features including bonus Brawler Gale and of course the eagerly awaited Brawl Pass.
For those who play online games such as Fornite and PUBG, this “Battle Pass” style of progression should be very familiar.
In-game experience from playing and completing challenges will feed into a track that unlocks rewards the more you play. These rewards include boxes, gems, and other items such as cosmetics.
Each Brawl Pass will last for one in game season, the first of which is being dubbed “Tara’s Bazaar”. Any rewards you don’t unlock will disappear at the end of the season though should be available again at a later date. Brawl Stars will cycle in objectives that can help boost your track further.
While you don’t need to pay for the Brawl Pass there is a premium option available. Spending 169 gems will add another track loaded with even more rewards, but is it worth the extra spend? In order to unlock this bonus track will cost £9.99 and – as with any Battle Pass – its value hinges on how often you play the game.
Here’s what you can expect from each Tier, both with the free pass and Brawl Pass activated. This data comes via the Brawl Stars Fandom wiki.

With a total of 90 Gems up for grabs upon hitting Tier 51, you’ll be getting most of your investment back though only if you’re clocking a considerable amount of playtime.
That said, there’s plenty of value in the other rewards up for grabs here with Mega Boxes priced at 80 Gems each – you’ll also get access to new Brawler Gale instead of needing to buy Brawl Boxes with a chance to unlock him.
