December 2017 Update:
The Brawl Stars team removes Chips in the game. Players can no longer buy new Brawlers or get it from duplicate Brawlers. Players with Chips after the December 2017 major update will be replaced with Gems. The Chips to Gems ratio is 1:3 or 1 Chip equals 3 Gems.
What’s up guys, Itchy Monkey here! In this article, we will talk about Brawl Stars Chips. I’ll let you know how to get them, how much chips you’ll get, and should you buy brawlers with it.

Brawl Stars Chips – How To Get Them
The only way you can unlock a Brawler is through Brawl Boxes. You can get an Elixir, 2 Elixirs, 5 Elixirs, and even 10 Elixirs along with common, rares, epics, and legendaries. But what if you get a duplicate? This is where the game gives you a chip in return.
1 Chip Brawlers
Commons Costs 3 Chips
I played the game since it launched in Beta and to be honest, I bought some of these commons for 3 chips. This is a bad move. You’ll get them one way or another inside brawl boxes. I just got a little excited and want to do a massive trophy push for each. Young brawlers earn as much as 8-9 trophies in Showdown events and 5 Trophies on the others. If I look back, I should’ve saved my chips and bought an epic brawler instead. Don’t make the same mistake.
2 Chip Brawlers
Rares Costs 10 Chips
Same story with my Chip spending for commons. Bull and Barley I bought them each for 10 Chips. Again, don’t do the same mistake that I did. Save your chips for Epics, Mythics and even Legendaries.
4 Chip Brawlers
Super Rares Costs 20 Chips
Now is the best time to experience Bo as he is now available for only 20 Chips. As a previous Epic Brawler, he costs 60 chips. Don’t try to underestimate his demotion though as his mines are wicked from his September Update buff.
10 Chip Brawlers
Epics Costs 60 Chips
Now, this where it all changes, because of all the chips I spent with Commons and Rares, I don’t have enough for Epics. After the September Update, I don’t have any Epic brawlers in my team. Bo got demoted as a Super Rare and Mortis got promoted as Mythic. Piper is still on the top for the best Sniper. Pam has that wide spray attack that can deny brawlers from coming in. Not to mention her Super, Mama’s Kiss, is pretty handy too.
30 Chip Brawlers
Mythics Costs 200 Chips
You’ve been blessed by the Supercell Gods if you’re able to unlock one of these two. Well, Mortis used to be under Epic but Tara is another story. Tara is piping hot right now in the game. She is one of the most sought after brawler ever since she’s made available after the September Update. To be honest, I would rather by Tara than getting myself a legendary. 🙂
60 Chip Brawlers
Legendaries Costs 500 Chips
I guess if you’ve saved all your Chips and didn’t buy any, you can save as much as 500. Especially if you’re a gemmer who bought a lot of brawl boxes but wasn’t lucky enough to get one. These legendaries used to cost 600 Chips. They toned it down together with the other changes.
Brawl Stars Chips Additional Info
As of this writing, there is no other way to get Chips but to pull duplicates. You can not get them inside Brawl Boxes or buy them with gems. I’ve been bouncing around Brawl Stars Reddit and some players are suggesting ideas about it. One player suggested using chips to buy brawler skins. Another one still wants to have it increased per duplicate.
To be honest, Brawl Stars is still in Beta. It is still under construction and needs a lot of polishing. The game devs are open to these suggestions and if you want to include an idea, you can always visit their Reddit HERE.
