We are presenting our Arknights Tier List in this article.
Last Updated: September 2021
Arknights is one of the best, if not the best gacha games out there. At it’s core, it plays off a tower defense game with a number of characters who act as the towers. It gained immense praise and popularity because of its art design, lack of purchase pressure, limited grind, and accessibility. It was developed by Chinese developers Studio Montagne and Hypergryph. It was released in China on 1 May 2019 and after seeing the popularity and widespread praise by the audience there, it was released worldwide on 16 January 2020.
The gameplay revolves around placing characters, called “operators” at specific tiles in order to stop the enemy from advancing towards your base. Melee operators can be placed on ground tiles and ranged operators on elevated tiles. Melee operators physically block enemies from advancing and ranged operators deal ranged damage, heal or support other melee operators. The position of the operator is primarily defined by its class. Every operator in the game belongs to one of 8 classes. These classes are:
ARKNIGHTS TIER LIST
Arknights features a diverse cast of characters in each class. As all classes are important while playing the game, we will present our tier list based on each operator’s class. The operators within each class will be divided into five tiers, namely S/A/B/C/D tiers with S-Tiers being the best and D-Tiers being the characters that you would want to avoid using. The order within each tier does not matter.
|S-Tier||These operators define the meta within each class. You cannot go wrong with these characters and they are viable for almost all combat cases|
|A-Tier||These operators fall just a bit short when compared to the ones in S-Tier but they are still solid choices within their class and is a great choice for any party|
|B-Tier||These operators are good for most combat cases but will give you trouble as you progress further into the game.|
|C-Tier||These operators are viable for many combat cases but there is a clear difference between them and the operators in the tiers above. Use them only if you have no better choices available|
|D-Tier||We hate to say it but the operators in this tier are to be avoided, they are maybe viable for very niche metas but are usually not worth having in your party|
