Season 14 - Robot Factory - is just around the corner in Brawl Stars! Supercell has revealed Sam and Gus as the two new Brawlers as well as eight new skins that will both be gradually released throughout the season. However, something that has quietly snuck under everyone's radar is a set of recent balance changes and updates that could shake up the current Brawl Stars meta. This comes courtesy of Brawl Stars content creator, Coach Cory.

So, what sort of changes are we looking at? As always, it's buffs, nerfs, and adjustments. The only difference this time is that Brawlers aren't the only thing affected - this time, Gears will be too! Let's go over everything in the August 2022 Brawl Stars balance changes.
