What are star powers and how to unlock them

Brawl Stars skills are passive powers unique to each character that give them a special ability that can cause certain attacks to deal more damage, heal faster, or receive a bonus in some other statistic. They also work as an incentive to increase the level of the characters.

How to activate your star powers

At the beginning of your journey through Brawl Stars, you will notice that these skills are locked:

You can only unlock them when you reach level 9 with your character, to do this, you need to accumulate coins and power points. These coins, as well as the power points, appear when you open Brawl Boxes, Big Boxes, and Mega boxes.

These boxes can be obtained in several ways:

  • Achieving seasonal rewards (with and without the Brawl Pass).
  • Buying them with gems (which you can get in the game or buy with real money).
  • Completing the Trophy Road as you get trophies and progress in the game.

In addition to a level 9 character, you will need a special star coin that can be found in the boxes:

It is worth noting that each brawler can have two star powers, but can only have one activated. The star powers are always related to the game mechanics of each brawler, and they offer help and assistance to complete their game style and the strategies to use.

These powers will be decisive in giving a character the final push and turning it into an indispensable piece of any game.
