Check every Battlegrounds Buddy revealed so far and their relaease videos. Old Heroes are getting buddies too, and here we have the full list

If you were looking for every Battlegrounds Buddy, you’ve come to the right place! Every Heroe is getting a unique Buddy, with special abilities tied to their Hero Powers. They are a lot, but we have divided them by Tiers to make it easier to browse. If you wish to check a specific Buddy or Hero, ctrl+F might be your best buddy! We will update the list as soon as the content gets out.

Battlegrounds Buddies explained

We have already covered how the Battlegrounds Buddy mechanic works in a previous article. However, we can go over it in a quick fashion to refresh some concepts. Each Hero will have a special Buddy with abilities related to their Hero Powers.

To get the Battlegrounds Buddies, you need to complete tasks by playing battles, doing damage, poping divine shields, and winning/tieing battles. Each Buddy belongs to a specific Tier. The higher the tier, the harder the Buddymeter bar completes. But, at the same time, the more powerful the effect you get.

Full Battlegrounds Buddies List by Tier

You can jump to a specific section by clicking the Tier list below. Furthermore, if you want to check the reveal videos, here you have the full list of them also.

Tier 4 Battlegrounds Buddies

These are the most powerful buddies you will find. However, you will only get them around 9 Gold (turn 6). Your Buddymeter will take more to progress to the first step, and to triple them you will need to stomp the lobby. If you are able to achieve that, well, your reward will be game-ending.
