Buster is a Chromatic brawler who joined in Season 15 of Brawl Stars: Ghost Station. He fits the traditional Tank role as he boasts impressive HP stats. Buster's powerful Super also benefits him as a damage-absorber as it will allow him to charge into battles and protect allies. On top of that, his Gadgets and Star Powers offer significant healing, damage reduction, and bonus damage. All this combined makes Buster an incredibly versatile and durable brawler.

He can be somewhat of a challenging brawler to master given his wide array of abilities, so today, we'll be taking a closer look at Buster and how you can master him in Brawl Stars.
