How to use Brawl Stars and how it works

The interface of Brawl Stars is really intuitive, but maybe, the users less experienced in games need an explanation. First of all, you should know that you will appear in a training arena, where you will have to learn the basic controls. The game will explain it well enough, but just in case, the button to move is on the left of the screen, and the button to shoot is on the right:

You will also see a yellow button that loads as you shoot and hit targets, this is the button for the special skill of your character:

When you reach the main screen, you will find all this information:

Let's see its meaning, starting from the top left corner. First, we have the profile button, which lets us access our progress information in Brawl Stars:

Next, we have the Trophy Road button, which marks the progress we make in the game and unlocks certain rewards as we progress:

In the middle, we have the brawler. If we tap on it, we will access the character selection screen:

To the left of the brawler, we have two buttons, one with a cross, and one with a magnifying glass. The cross lets us create team codes, share our team code, or communicate with our friends in an online chat:

The magnifying glass is used to find players who want to make a team with us and participate in one of the events of the game:

After the brawler, we have the Star Points indicator. Star Points are used to purchase exclusive items from the in-game store, and they are earned by winning tournament events, after a character reaches level 10, and every 5 levels once that limit is reached:

Next, we find our coins. With them, we pay game money to help increase the level of our brawler:

Then, we find our gems. Gems are used to buy Brawl Boxes (either normal, large, or mega boxes), character customization items, and other things in the game store. You can slowly obtain gems by advancing in the daily objectives of Brawl Stars, by buying them with real money, or after buying the Brawl Pass:

Next, we have the friends button, which has the same function as the cross button we find next to the brawler:

Right after that, we have the Brawl Stars menu button, which lets us access the game settings, the results of our last games (known as Battle Log), the local and global player leader-boards, private messages, and more:
