What Each Tier Means

Now that you’ve taken a look at where we’ve ranked each character, let’s provide a bit of context for each tier!

S Tier

These characters are the best to use in the game at the moment! They’re the strongest in terms of abilities, passives, and damage.

A Tier

If you haven’t unlocked a character in S tier yet, you’ll still have a great time in the game with characters in A tier! They’re almost as strong as those in S tier.

B Tier

Pretty average characters that should probably be swapped out as soon as you unlock an A tier or S tier character. However, there’s no shame in using a character in B tier – especially if you’re new to the game!

C Tier

These characters aren’t exactly worth using, and should definitely be swapped out as soon as possible – they’re quite weak.

D Tier

It’s best to avoid characters in D tier altogether.
