'Brawl Stars' Star Token Guide: How to Unlock the Big Box

Brawl Stars is Supercell's newest addictive mobile game that combines the hero shooter gameplay made famous by Overwatch with the company's signature finger-tapping frenzy. The game released worldwide last week and has already been downloaded millions of times by a fanbase that's hungry for content. Those that take their first steps as a brawler realize early that unlocking new playable characters and gems (which are needed to power them up) only come from Brawl Boxes.

How to get Battle Brawl Star Tokens

The most efficient and best way to get Power Points, the currency needed to strengthen your Brawlers, is to start opening Brawl Boxes. These blue lunch boxes can be earned a few different ways. The game will give you one automatically every few hours which you can find in the store. If you're trying to move through the game efficiently with just the free hand-me-down, you aren't going to get very far.

Brawl Boxes are unlocked by earning Tokens, the purple gem of a currency earned by playing games. You earn 20 for winning Gem Grab and Heist, but can also unlock more by placing higher in Showdown. You can only earn 100 Tokens in one play session, with 20 more Tokens added to the pool every two and a half hours. You can also unlock an option to double the amount of Tokens you receive by paying gems (the game's premium currency) or or by earning Trophies through play.

The Brawl Box is nice, but if you're looking for the rarer Brawlers, you are going to need to get your hands on a Big Box. This huge, purple carrying case can only be unlocked by obtaining 10 Star Tokens.It can be annoying to find if you don't know where to look. On the event menu, you'll see a flashing star in the corner left of the event portrait. In order to unlock it, you'll have to place well in the game mode

  • Win a 3v3 game (Heist or Gem Grab)
  • Place in the top four in solo or duo (Showdown)

You can only unlock one Star Token for each time an event appears, meaning you'll have to wait until the next day to earn another. Collecting 10 can be troublesome, but is worth the effort.
