S Tier characters are hands down the best operators in the game. You won’t have trouble winning matches with these characters at your party. They are close to being considered overpowered and can sometimes break the game if you use them correctly.
These characters are fantastic but lack one particular component that makes them fall into the tier below S. Having any of these heroes will have you winning most matches and clearing anything in your path.
B-tier characters could be better, but they can’t help you progress. Eventually, you should replace them if you find a higher-level tier character, but you won’t be losing all battles with these heroes in play.
This is when you start entering the territory of characters that don’t deserve much of your time. Sometimes these heroes can surprise you with abilities, but they aren’t worth investing your time in in the long run.
Players should avoid this tier level at all costs. They won’t help you much in battle, and their abilities are weak compared to their higher counterparts. The reason why they are higher than the F tier is mainly because the characters below them are even more of a joke.
All of these characters are a joke and won’t get you anywhere and won’t help with any matches. They are a group of nuisances, to say the least, and are the worst operators in the game.
Arknights is available now for Android and iOS.
