Brawl Stars showcased the Brawl Talk for September 2021, which is a mid-season update for Season 8 of Brawl Pass. The update introduces players to a new legendary Brawler, new skins and also marks the return of the Retropolis environment. In this article, we will look at all the announcements for the upcoming season.
Brawl Talk September 2021: What’s new
New Legendary Brawler – Meg
The latest addition to the long list of brawlers in Starr Park is Meg. Meg, a vending machine repair person completes the superhero trio and joins Max, Surge. She has an interesting mechanic where she is a weak brawler at first but after she uses her super she turns herself into a devastating machine.
In her normal avatar, Meg has low HP and a long-range attack which deals very little damage while shooting 2 projectiles. In her mech phase, she shoots 8 projectiles instead of 2 and loses HP over time. When Meg enters into the mech phase her super now does a slashing attack similar to Bibi’s normal attack for insane damage but in this phase, her super charges automatically and does not charge on hitting shots.
Meg on losing all her HP in her mech phase goes into her normal avatar meaning to kill her players will need to kill her in mech phase and then her normal phase.
New skins and more animated pins
The Brawl Talk September 2021 update, being a mid-season one, brings only 2 new skins – Gladiator Colette and V8-Bit.
Gladiator Colette was the Supercell Make winner and makes her way into Brawl Stars this season. Meanwhile, V8-Bit is a rendition of 8-Bit in the Retropolis clothing scheme.
V8-Bit will be unlockable for free during the Retropolis challenge coming in October.
Retropolis skins make a return and players who possess all the skins will get exclusive pins for all the skins. The Retropolis skins include :
- Hot Rod Brock
- Road Rage Carl
- Rockabilly Mortis
- Bakesale Barley
We are also getting new true silver and true gold skins for Pam, Max, Poco, Brock, and 8-Bit. Animated Pins for more brawlers will be released with the update along with an exclusive pin for Dark Lord Spike.
Brawl Talk September 2021: Improvements for Clubs
The size of clubs is going to be decreased from 100 to 30 in the coming update, which is aimed at adding a new way to play the game as suggested by Paula. This could mean a potential Clan Wars-like system similar to Clash of Clans.
