Arknights Tier List - Every Operator Ranked

Searching for an Arknights tier list? With over 200 Operators in total, Arknights is one of the biggest mobile gacha games out there, letting you build a team of characters to fight for survival in a post-apocalyptic far-future. As such, it can be a little hard to know who's worth having in your team.

That's where this Arknights tier list comes in. We've compiled each character into ranking tables based upon the game's eight classes, helping you build a balanced squad while also using the best characters you have available for each role.

For those who don't know, Arknights is a tower defence-style gacha game where you fend off wave after wave of enemies using characters you gather through headhunting and recruitment. These characters are the pillars of your defence, and each has a class as well as a series of powerful abilities that make them effective members of your team.

Without delay, here is every character in Arknights ranked for each class.
