Best F2P Team Compositions in Honkai Star Rail

You don't need all the best characters to enjoy the game.

by Davi Braid

Players who don’t spend money on gacha games often struggle to build strong teams. If you’re one of those, this guide will show you the best F2P compositions in Honkai Star Rail.

Honkai Star Rail provides a diverse experience with its team-based battles. Each team is made up of four characters, and there’s a wide range of roles you can assign within a single team. This might be both fascinating and puzzling for beginners. However, some strategies are more effective than others, and certain team compositions can work well even with 4-Star characters.

The team composition will depend on your tactics. Each demands different characters and significantly changes the way you play the game:

Double DPS Team

The first method is by using Dan Heng, which is the best single-target free DPS in the game, and making sure he has some backup with a support character that can deal some damage, a healer, and a tank.

  • Dan Heng
  • Welt
  • Natasha
  • Fire Trailblazer

There’s another team composition that works similarly but depends on preventing Yanqing from getting hit. To make that happen, you need the right tank and the right support.

  • Yanqing
  • Fire Trailblazer
  • Bronya
  • Natasha

The Tanky Team

This team is meant to have two characters as a frontline while you use a DPS and a Support to deal damage.

  • Dan Heng
  • Bronya or Asta
  • Fire Trailblazer
  • March 7th

The Balanced Team

Honkai-Seele

This one will work well for players who dislike riskier strategies. Seele deals decent damage with a buffer, and a healer is just a safety measure in this composition. The tank will be the best free tank as you probably expected.

  • Seele
  • Fire Trailblazer
  • Bronya or Asta
  • Natasha

There’s a variation of this team in which we use Dan Heng instead of Seele, making it probably the best F2P team composition in the game.

  • Dan Heng
  • Asta
  • Natasha
  • Fire Trailblazer
