XP Limit[]

There is a limit of how much XP can be obtained at a time. Every 2 hours and 24 minutes (24 hours divided by 10), 20 XP will be added to your XP Counter, with a total cap of 200 XP. However, if you have a Brawl Pass activated, you gain 40 XP, and the cap is increased to 400 XP.

When the XP Counter is empty, you will play only for Trophies and Mastery. You will still get XP for completing Quests, or ranking up a Brawler.

XP Doublers[]

XP Doubler

You can buy XP Doublers (formerly Token Doublers) from the shop to increase the amount of XP earned while playing. Each booster costs 25 Gems and doubles the next 1,000 XP received at the end of any match. XP Doublers can also be offered in the Shop for free occasionally, obtained for free as Trophy Road rewards, and obtained for free as Starr Drop rewards as well. XP Doublers do not affect Quest rewards.

XP Doublers were also found in Brawl Boxes, and had a 3% drop rate, with varying sizes ranging from 200 to 800. In the December 2022 update, Brawl Boxes were removed from the game indefinitely.


XP can be used to advance to more rewards in the Brawl Pass, which cost between 50 to 950 XP for each tier, where Coins, Gems, Credits, Power Points, Bling, Skins, and other items can be obtained. The bonus Starr Drops at the end of the Brawl Pass require 1600 XP each.

Star Tokens[]

Star Token

Star Tokens were a special kind of Token obtained by winning an Event for the first time in a rotation, meaning a Star Tokens became available whenever a map changed. Star Tokens were used to obtain Big Boxes. Once the player had 10 Star Tokens, one Big Box was earned.

To get a Star Token from a Solo Showdown, you had to place in the top 4. For Duo Showdown, you had to place in the top 2. No matter the result, a Star Tokens could be obtained from Big Game, Robo Rumble, and Boss Fight. Star Tokens could not be obtained in Power Play.

In the May 2020 update, Star Tokens were removed from the game indefinitely.

Classic Brawl Event[]

Star Tokens were temporarily added back during the June 2024 update for the Classic Brawl event. They are earned by winning a selected Event for the first time in a rotation, from Quests, and from Challenges. These Star Tokens are used to obtain Mega Boxes. Once the player earns 12 Star Tokens, one Mega Box is awarded.

Double XP Event[]

Double XP Event

Once a month, there is a Double XP event. During the event, XP is doubled, separate from the use of XP Doublers (XP Doublers are applied after the double, giving a net gain of 4x XP). The event does not apply to Quest rewards or the XP from voting in maps from the Candidates of the Day slot.
