Amber is a Legendary Damage Dealer from Brawl Stars. She is the first female legendary brawler. Her devastating fire attack makes Amber unstoppable at mid-range. Amber unleashes a continuous stream of fire at her enemies and controls the area using oil puddles that can be ignited at her will. She uses her Star Powers to charge her Super attack or increase the reload speed. Her gadget, Fire Starters, gives her a movement speed boost and additional AoE damage.
Who Is Amber?
Amber is a happy-go-lucky pyromaniac from Mexico.
Amber’s Dragon Breath devastates unlucky enemies who get too close to her. Watch the ammo!
Amber can Torch ‘Em with her oil-filled flasks. She drops them at the feet of other Brawlers and ignites oil puddles with the main attack. Great for clearing out bushes and campers.
Players unlock the Fire Starters gadget after Amber reaches Power 7. It has 3 charges allowing Amber to dash towards or run away from her enemies. The gadget also leaks oil that can be ignited.
Players unlock Amber’s Star Powers after getting to Power 9. Wild Flames recharge her Super if she stands next to an oil puddle. Scorchin’ Siphon halves her reloading time.

How To Play Amber
Amber deals a lot of damage mid-range. Auto-aim when the enemy is close, switch to manually aiming against fast-moving or strafing targets. Don’t spend your ammo too fast, and always wait before a reload is complete.
Amber’s Super is great for area control. Drop a flask of oil on the trail and try baiting the enemy to step on the puddle. Then ignite the oil. Amber’s Super can reach enemies on the other side of the wall and clear bushes.
How to use Amber (video tutorial):
Amber’s Gadget gives her a moderate speed boost. Use it as soon as you get it to close the distance between you and your target. The best build for proactive players is the Scorchin’ Siphon Star Power + the Fire Starters gadget.
Best modes to play: Heist, Hot Zone
Worst modes to play: Bounty, Knockout
Amber can be a good pick for Gem Grab due to her area control skills. Experienced players can benefit from Amber’s ranged attack in the Brawl Ball mode.
Amber vs. Other Brawlers
Mortis, Gene, Sprout, Spike and Surge are the perfect counters for Amber.
- Gene can grab Amber to eliminate her range advantage.
- Mortis can camp and sneak up on Amber.
- Sprout creates barriers with his Super Seed and can use shields against Amber’s fire attack.
- Spike will slow down Amber before she gets in mid-range.
- Surge outranges Amber and has a very fast attack that will finish her off before she starts firing.
Using Amber against tanks and other high-health enemies like El Primo is a good idea.
Playing Amber is risky against characters who can out range her or use sneak attacks like Rosa or Mortis. Use map advantages if you have any and rely on your teammates in late game. Clear out bushes with the Super attack to get rid of campers.
- The Amber de la Vega skin can be bought for 149 Gems. It pays homage to Zorro with its mask, sword and cape.
- The True Silver skin costs 10K coins.
- The True Gold skin costs 25K coins.
