Arknights Tier List Ranking Meaning:

Advertisement

S+ Tier – These are the best operators in Arknights in the current meta. They are overpowered and pretty much good at clearing any content. You should invest in these characters as soon as possible.

S Tier – These are also excellent Arknights characters. While not as powerful as the S-tier ones, they are still able to clear most content easily.

A Tier – Not great, not bad also. Play with them only if you don’t have anything else to substitute within your team.

B Tier – Not really worth investing in these Arknights heroes, unless you literally have nothing else, and even then you should save your resources for other characters.

C Tier – These Arknights operators are underwhelming to say the least, so you should probably avoid using these in your battles if you want easier wins.

Advertisement

D Tier – These are the lowest-ranked operators in our Arknights tier list and for good reason. They don’t really excel at anything, and there are far better units that you can use and play with. Avoid these at all costs, unless you know what you’re doing.

How Did We Create this Tier List?

As we do with all our tier lists, we always do a lot of research before publishing a tier list for a game. We’ve gone through a lot of Arknight YouTube videos, forum discussions, Discord, and the Arknight subreddit to create this Arknight tier list.

But…

You should always keep in mind that what works for some players might not work for others, and it also depends on the team synergy. Not to mention the fact that with any game update, this Arknight tier list can change.

Still, this is only our own opinion of the game, and it’s not meant to be 100% accurate.

What we focused on when ranking the characters:

  • Role type
  • Base Stats
  • Skills
  • DPS Output
  • Healing Output

We mainly focused on each operator’s base stats, skills, DPS, and healing aspect, but keep in mind that team synergy and strategy matter a lot in a game like Arknights. You can even clear content with lower-tier operators if the team has a good synergy and you know what you’re doing.

There you go, all of the best Arknights characters ranked for the latest meta in June 2022.

What is Arknights?

Arknights is a popular tower-defense RPG that is developed by Hypergryph and Studio Montagne and published by Yostar (in the global version of the app).

The game is interesting because it combines tower-defense gameplay but with an anime style and classic RPG and strategy elements.

You will have to use operators to set up your defenses, and you have hundreds of them to choose from, each with its own unique skills.

So if you like tower-defense strategy games and also anime RPGs, you should give Arknights a try.

You can download Arknights on Google Play or the App Store.

  1. Boy you’re crazy if you think SilverAsh should be in the E tier and Ansel should be in the S tier. Also, there’s no PVP in this game. So like what is going on in that head of yours?!

    • Hey Jennifer,

      You’re absolutely right, upon further inspection, it seems that the author of this article didn’t do their research properly. I’ve updated it now. Thank you for the suggestions and your comment.
