Risk Of Rain Returns 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 characters as much as you can.

  • Loader 
  • Captain
  • Bandit
  • Artificer
  • Drifter


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

  • Commando
  • Rail Gunner
  • Void Fiend
  • Acrid
  • Pilot


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

  • Mercenary
  • Huntress
  • Heretic


These characters are good if you’re just starting out – but try to go for characters in a higher tier a.s.a.p!

  • Rex
  • MUL-T


Avoid these characters as much as possible!

  • Luckily, no one is here yet!

When Do We Update Our Tiers?

As the game has only just been released, we don’t know too much about the characters yet. We regularly check our tier lists to make sure they are as updated as they can be – especially if the game has had an update. Make sure to check back every so often!
