by Shaun Cichacki

For gamers that are hoping to jump into a new mobile game that can keep them occupied for hours on end, Idle Huntress may be a perfect choice. Alongside wonderful 2D graphics that pop off of the screen, players will also find a surprisingly large number of characters currently available to help them push through these intense battles.

However, there may be some characters that end up causing more hassle than they are worth, especially with so many to choose from. While almost any character can help gamers make their way past the first few hours, some are going to stand out against the crowd and become the thing of legends. Let’s find out which characters are going to be the best of the bunch, and which are going to be a headache for gamers.

Best Characters In Idle Huntress – Tier List

While this title may rely on Gacha mechanics for players to earn new characters, there is a great chance that players will find characters that automatically jive with them as soon as they start this title up. However, with Tier Lists, we go through and analyze on a personal level which characters we think to rank the highest, due to a variety of factors. While Tier Lists may be personal preference and can be a bit subjective, find out who we think ranks the highest.

D-Tier Characters In Idle Huntress
