Types of Avatar Borders in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang

Plain Brown Avatar

All new players begin with a single Avatar Border, the default border. This unassuming, plain Avatar Border is brown with a wooden texture and symbolizes the humble beginnings of a new player in the world of MLBB. As players progress in the game and continue to log hours and hours of gameplay, they will soon collect more Avatar Borders to represent participation in the game, events and the community.

There are mainly 4 types of Avatar Borders in Mobile Legends. These are mostly from Collectibles, Event, Skin, and Community. Collectibles are the easiest type of Avatar Border to obtain. They usually come with achievements such as reaching Legend/Mythic rank. It can also be claimed by participating in in-game features like MCL, Starlight or gifting.

Event Avatar Borders

Christmas Avatar

Event Avatar Borders are the most in number and are usually time-limited, so it is harder to obtain if the event has passed. Some examples of Event borders are First Purchase, Christmas, MSC, Halloween etc. Even though these borders are time-limited, they are usually very easy to claim, requiring players to complete tasks like playing a few matches with friends or logging in for a certain number of days. Event borders are also usually themed, for example, Christmas borders will have a red-green colour scheme with mistletoes and pine trees. 

Skin Avatar Borders

Skin Borders are arguably the most expensive borders to obtain, as they are directly linked to character Skins. Since they are linked, simply owning the skin will usually reward players with the corresponding border. The most notable Skin Borders are the Legend Skin borders, where players need to purchase Legend Skins like Saber “Codename Storm” or Alucard “Obsidian Blade” to obtain their borders.

Some Skin borders are also claimable by owning a certain theme or squad of skins, such as the S.A.B.E.R squad skins or V.E.N.O.M skins. By owning just 3 of the 5 total skins, players will be eligible to claim these borders.

Community Avatar Borders

Lastly, players can also receive Avatar Borders as gifts for avid participation in the MLBB community. These types of Borders can be claimed through community events, participating in giveaways that can be found on their social media, or by being a big fan and influencer in the MLBB community. For example, the Super Fan border is awarded to players who have showcased excellence in the community.
