Brawl Stars Wiki

Cross Cut is an official map for the Gem Grab event.


The map has an open center with little cover in each lane. There are four wall clusters in a pinwheel formation, with the top-right and the bottom-left walls having a bush, while the top-left and the bottom-right walls cuddle two elongated lakes. The map is diagonally symmetrical.


  • With minimal obstacles and bushy areas, this map is perfect for long-ranged Brawlers. The long narrow pathways allows these Brawlers to locate and take down enemies from afar.
  • The Gem carrier should stay within the left bush cluster and fall back whenever they take Gems.
  • The middle lane is more fit for support Brawlers to guard the gem carrier. This includes medium to long ranged Brawlers.
  • The right lane is where heavyweights should go through that aim to be aggressive. Once reaching midway, they should head further into the enemy team's bushes.
  • Destroying the fencing should be a Brawler's last priority as doing so negatively impacts both teams.
