June 20, 2024: We've made changes to our Archero tier list.

Archero is an adorable cartoon mobile game that revolves around an archer who receives magical powers and uses them to traverse through enemies and obstacles. Winning in Archero is not only based on your skills but also your choice of abilities and heroes. Our Archero tier list will be your guide for always choosing the right choices.

We’ve carefully ranked all characters, skills, and abilities available in the game. Whether you are a veteran or a newbie, making an informed choice will always be helpful at any stage of the game. Regardless if you want to finish the toughest stages or just want to have a smooth sailing journey to victory, our tier list will help you achieve your goal! 

Additionally, we’ll also go over the reroll process, allowing you to start over if you are not happy with your current lineup. If you want more mobile game guides, check out our Azur Lane, Dislyte, and Squad Busters tier lists.

As you can tell from our tier list, there aren't too many Archero heroes to collect. The key distinction is between free characters and premium characters, who cost real money to unlock. However, they don't all provide a gameplay boost, even though all characters in the S tier are premium purchases. The free characters are as follows:

  • Atreus
  • Urasil
  • Phoren
  • Taranis
  • Helix
  • Meowgik

Using these characters will certainly do enough to get you to the higher levels, and defeat the toughest bosses, with plenty of practice. However, if you want to stamp your name on the leaderboards and become one of the best at Archero, spending money is unfortunately the best way to do that.

Who Is the Best Archero Hero?

As per our tier list, the best heroes in Archero are Wukong and Dragon Girl. Any Hero that slots into S Tier is definitely worth using but thanks to their superior performance, we highly recommend using Wukong and Dragon Girl.

How Do I Get More Archero heroes?

As mentioned, there are two tiers of Archero heroes, so the unlock method varies based on who you're trying to get. Unsurprisingly, unlocking the premium characters is as simple as heading to the in-game store and spending your money to purchase them.

For free-to-play heroes, the unlock process is slightly different. Instead, you unlock them by collecting shards, which you gain by competing in the special event Desert Ghost on the main menu. This is separate from the endless RNG combat that forms the basis of Archero's gameplay. Instead, you'll need to head to Desert Ghost and defeat enemies, hoping to grab shards in a random drop from a dead opponent.

Antiquated Sword
Stalker Staff
Celestial Might
Brave Bow

A

Brightspear
Demon Blade
Saw Blade
Gale Force

B

Death Scythe
Tornado
Stalker Staff

C

Mini Atreus
Brave Bow

As you can see from our Archero weapons tier list, the best weapon in the game is the Antiquated Sword.

The weapon you first start with is the Brave Bow, which is also a very handy item to keep a hold of. It's a consistently middle-range weapon, which can be really useful when upgraded with abilities like Double Arrow. However, it doesn't pack the same instant punch as some of the melee weapons in the game, so it's less useful if you're stuck in a crowd of enemies all going for you.

All Archero Item Types

In Archero, there are seven different item types. These come with different in-game effects and roles, as well as modifiers that can tweak your stats. They are as follows:

Item Type
Effect
Weapons
Used to damage enemies
Armor
Used to upgrade health
Rings
Increase the damage to certain enemy types, depending on the ring
Spirits
External companions who fight alongside you
Lockets
Increase health for specific types
Bracelets
Increase damage
Spellbooks
Unique magical abilities that have blistering effects

Archero Reroll Guide

If you've just started Archero and you aren't happy with the abilities you've unlocked or the characters you have, rerolling is always an option. This will manually reset your progress, putting you back to where you first began with no unlocks.

Sadly there is no way to reroll within the Archero app, meaning you'll have to delete it from your mobile device. Doing this will wipe your saved data and progress entirely. Then it's a simple matter of redownloading the game and starting all over again. You'll be ready to spin for abilities once more, and hopefully to unlock some high-level weapons and characters.
