Brawlhalla 101 

  • Brawlhalla is a platform fighter where players can choose from a list of 50+ fighters called Legends and duke it out on various platforms (stages). 
  • Unlike traditional fighting games, like Street Fighter or Guilty Gear, players achieve victory by knocking their opponent off of the play stage. 
  • Different characters (Legends) can be unlocked by earning in-game coins and buying them through the game's store. 
    • Coins are earned by completing challenges and logging in each day. 


  • Each legend has its own unique skill set, combos, and timing. 
    • It is advised that players stick to a character to truly learn their strengths/weaknesses. 
  • Varied combos are the most effective, as using the same moves repeatedly results in your opponent being able to easily predict attacks. 
  • Here are a few mechanics that all players should familiarize themselves with: 
    • Edge-guarding - applying pressure to your opponent when trying to get back onto the stage. Throwing a weapon at them can bait an air dodge and provide players with an easy window for attacking. 
    • Aerials - Learn how your character moves in the air to take full advantage of vulnerable opponents
