Technically, the best way to play Teamfight Tactics is to adjust as things happen. When TFT offers you a couple of Nobles or Wild, generally you should lean into those and utilize them for early game success. However, sometimes I find myself chasing after a certain team comp before the match even starts. If that’s you, then this guide should be right up your alley. This is our Best TFT Brawlers Team Comp guide which is up to date as of TFT Patch 9.16.

TFT Hextech Brawlers
Despite the buffs to Morellonomicon and Red Buff, this beef cake team comp still does tremendously well. Because Vi is both a Brawler and Hextech, we prefer running Jinx over Draven, the other hyper carry. We’ll update this guide with details as things change.
In the end, your team comp should look like: Blitzcrank, Cho’Gath, Jinx, Rek’Sai, Vi, Volibear, Warwick.
With this group you’ll get the following buffs:
- 6 Brawlers: +1000 bonus health to Brawlers.
- 2 Hextech: Throw a bomb at an enemy unit with an item, and disables all items in a 1 hex radius for 8 seconds.
- 1 Robot: Robots start combat with full mana.
- Jinx: Rapid Firecannon (Recurve + Recurve), Hextech Gunblade (BF Sword + Needless), Infinity Edge (BF Sword + BF Sword)
Champions Ranked by Priority
If your main synergy is Brawlers, this is the order in which you should prioritize the Brawler champions. Obviously, you’ll have other synergies that you need to account for, but if you need to transition up, this is the order in which you should do so.
- Blitzcrank: The only Robot at the moment, Blitzcrank thankfully uses his Robot synergy well, which is to pull the furthest enemy to him (usually a weaker opponent kept in the back). Also, as a 2-cost unit, it’s possible to build a team around Blitzcrank, unlike the Exile Yasuo.
- Cho’Gath: Cho’Gath is a four-cost unit that you can build a team around. They’re a Brawler with high DPS, and combined with the right item set-up Cho’Gath can be hard to take down. Their ability is also an AoE attack that stuns, and coupled with the Void synergy is a very powerful move.
- Volibear: With the right items Volibear is one of the strongest champions in the game. What’s interesting about that is he’s also a frontline unit. There are very few of champions in the game that can both take and deal damage, but Voli is one of those.
- Vi: Vi is currently somewhere between Cho’Gath and Rek’Sai. She may very well be stronger and more maliable than Volibear since she can get to the back line with her ultimate.
- Rek’Sai: Rek’Sai is a Void Brawler like Cho’Gath, so she can be useful in getting the Brawler synergy to get extra health while working towards a stronger comp. However, she’s overall a rather unremarkable unit, and with better Brawlers and Void champions to choose from, she’s only worth fielding in the early-game.
- Warwick: Warwick is a solid early to mid game unit. He’s got pretty good health, can deal out some damage, and has a crowd control ultimate. That said, you he’s one of the first units you want to switch out as he just can’t compare to the better Brawlers.
