The Brawl Stars summer 2020 update is approaching with the release of the June Brawl Talk. This June Brawl Talk, conveniently named the “Summer of Monsters,” gives us a sneak peek of what’s to come soon. So, what was announced in this episode of Brawl Talk? Here’s a recap for ya.
NEW Chromatic Brawler: Surge
Surge is the new Chromatic rarity Brawler coming with the new season pass.
According to Dani and Ryan, Surge’s attack is a combination of Gene and Spike’s. Essentially, Surge shoots out a Gene-like projectile that splits into Spike’s pegs once it hits an enemy.
Surge’s Super is interesting: it deals no damage. Instead, Surge leaps in the air (around 1 sec immunity) and upgrades himself. With each upgrade Surge gets stronger, although the Brawl Talk doesn’t say how or by how much. You can upgrade Surge up to 3 times, but note that once you die, he loses all upgrades.
The Summer of Monsters themed Brawl Stars update revolves heavily around new skins. In other words, there are tons of new skins coming.
2 Brawl Pass Exclusive Skins
This time around, there will be 2 Brawl Pass exclusive skins rather than 1. You unlock the first skin immediately and the second skin at tier 60.
- Super Ranger Brock
- Mecha Paladin Surge
NEW True Silver and True Gold Skins
In this update, the dev team is adding two new types of skins aimed at players who have a large sum of Gold just sitting there. Introducing True Silver and True Gold skins – you can only buy these with Gold!
True Silver Skins
True Silver skins cost 10,000 Gold each (quite pricey!) and are pretty much just a completely silver variant for the Brawlers. You also must be at least Power 9 on the Brawler before you can purchase this skin.
True Gold Skins
True Gold skins cost 25,000 Gold each. However, you must have the True Silver variant of the skin before you can purchase the True Gold variant as well. In other words, one True Gold skin costs a whopping 35,000 Gold to obtain. If you’re free-to-play, don’t expect to get many of these bad boys any time soon.
Summer of Monsters Skins
- Mega Beetle Bea
- King Crab Tick
- Streetwear Max
NEW Game-mode: Super City Rampage
A brand new game mode is coming out as well called Super City Rampage. In this game mode, your objective is to defeat the monster (boss) before he destroys the city (in other words within 2 minutes).
Although the Brawl Talk doesn’t go into detail about the game mode, it seems like the monster does attack players and can also become stronger (similar to the Boss raging in Boss Fight…actually this new game mode is pretty much just Boss Fight).
There are new Pins coming in the summer update along with the ability to select Pins to use during a match (they mentioned this in the last Brawl Talk). In other words, Pins can actually be seen now.
- You can now collect Brawl Pass rewards in any order (woop!)
- New obstacle: Rope Fence – You can shoot through these but cannot walk through them (Supers can destroy them like normal walls)
- New environment (unknown name)
- Hot Zone is here to stay – Hot Zone will now go into the map rotation and new Quests
- Trophy Road extension – The Trophy Road now goes up to 50,000 trophies (abit overkill if you ask me). And yes, you just get a Mega Box for reaching 50,000 haha.
- Crow and White Crow are getting remodels
- 10 New Gadgets
At the end of the Brawl Talk, the video teased some new Gadgets and displayed “10 Gadgets!” on the screen. However, the video only shows very brief clips of what these 10 (Brawlers are getting more than 1 Gadget now I guess) new Gadgets will be, so I won’t go over them.
Season 2: Summer of Monsters starts July 6 and will last 10 weeks. This update isn’t the biggest ever and is mainly focused on new skins and a somewhat new game mode. That being said, there is still a lot to look forward to and the grind is just getting more real. Stay tuned for out patch-notes posts when the update drops next week! For now, you should start the grind!
