Lockdown Brawl Beginners Guide and Tips

Battle with unique cards and quirky and fun characters.

Card-based Battle Royale is a unique genre and Lockdown brawl is basically a turn-based Battle Royale game developed by Bombay Play (an Indian Studio). They primarily develop card-based games like Card Party! , UNO+ and Card Game 29 are also multiplayer games. Now without further ado, Let’s get into the beginners guide for Lockdown Brawl, a card-based Battle Royale game.

Game Mechanics

The game is simple, we battle 3 other people in a battle royale mode and the last one standing wins the match. This is a turn-based game, where each round you use cards you unlocked to attack, defend, and heal, and more.

Lockdown Brawl Beginners Guide

Basically, When health reduces to zero, You die and the match gets over. To kill enemies, use your cards wisely. You are given 6 cards in the deck when the battle starts and if you don’t like the cards you have currently in hand, you can draw a card which will count as one round. In case you are idle and your timer runs out, a card will be drawn into your hand automatically. Attacks are based on cards that you unlock which can be used to inflict different damages to enemies. The game rounds go clockwise, you can be attacked directly by the person before you. In some cases, if anyone uses an “Attack all” card it will deal damage to you.

Every turn, you can choose a card of the same colour dealt before you to the centre (just like Uno). Every unlocked card will come in all three colours (red, green and blue), while some cards are colour-independent (These cards can be dealt anytime and sometimes gives you the option to change the colour of the card the next opponent should use). For every first-place win, you will get a Legendary Chest and for every second-place finish, you will get a Champion Chest.

Hearts and Cards


Player health will start at 1000 and can be upgraded by using health tokens, each upgrade will increase overall health by 10 points. Health tokens can be obtained by opening chests. Heath is an important part of a match and it is good to upgrade it as much as possible. For each upgrade, you will also have to spend some cash.

Cards can be classified into two sections: Core cards and Power cards.

Core Cards

Core cards are the basic cards and they can be used to attack a single opponent. Multiple cards can be collected from chests and upgraded to improve damage dealt against enemies.

There are totally 8 available cards under this category and 4 of them are available to add to your deck (Core deck can have only 4 cards, which can be changed before starting a battle) and 4 are locked.

Here is the list of available cards :

GoblinCORE (Claw)100

Lockdown Brawl Beginners Guide: Core Cards

Core cards can be counter-attacked if you have the same card the opponent has dealt. For instance,

In this image, You can see that the enemy used a Goblin card and we have two different coloured cards, which both can be used to counter-attack, which will pass on the attack with more damage (If the cards have been passed twice, it will deal 200 damage, if three times 300 damage and so on). Counter-attacks stop when a particular opponent does not have the card and deal the collective damage to them.

If you are at your last card and damage is minimal (shown at the bottom left corner), you can take the damage and deal a different card.

Power Cards

These cards have unique abilities and can change the gameplay experience. A total of 14 cards are available under this category, out of which, 4 will be unlocked out of the box and you can unlock the rest. These cards get unlocked when you level–up.
