This Bug Heroes: Tower Defense Tier List is your bug encyclopaedia for Bug Heroes: Tower Defense! We have ranked the best and worst bugs in the game so you know who to keep, and who to swat away!

In Bug Heroes: Tower Defense, you control an army of bugs! All the bugs have different and unique abilities and strategies in battle (this tier list will help you decide which bug is best!). Scavenge for different resources to help you, craft your defense systems, and level up your towers and bugs! The game uses a mix of RPG and Tower defense gameplay for fast-paced action packed fun.

Bug Heroes: Tower Defense Tier List

Our tier lists are formed from player feedback on the game, our opinions, and a wide variety of other sources to make sure we don’t give a biased list. However, if you disagree that’s more than okay!


The best of the best! Use these bugs as much as you can!

  • Spider
  • Mantis
  • Fiddler Crab
  • Ladybug
  • Scorpion
  • Bumble Bee


These are still great – don’t be put off by the fact they aren’t in S-Tier.

  • Ant
  • Beetle
  • Grasshopper
  • Stickbug
  • Leafbug


These are great, especially if you’re starting out!

  • Termite
  • Hunter
  • Slug
  • Snail


Not the best, not the worst. These bugs are good if you’re just starting out– but try to go for ones in a higher tier a.s.a.p!

  • Fly
  • Termite
  • Bruce Flee
  • Pillbug
  • Roach


Swat these away!

  • Mosquito
  • Wasp
