Looking for an Azur Lane tier list? This naval warfare-based gacha game is all about re-imagining real historical ships as anime girls, and even though it only launched a few years back, there are already over 250 different characters. That's a lot for anyone starting the game fresh to take in.
Luckily, these ships are divided into nations, then further divided into types that dictate what they'll be doing on the watery battlefield. As with most gacha games, each ship also has a rarity, changing the likelihood you have of receiving it when you pull. But there are plenty of ways to acquire Azur Lane ships, whether through building them or special events.
To makes things simpler, we've created an Azur Lane tier list of the best ships for each of the game's four main nations. Most of these may be pretty rare, but as they represent the pinnacle of what each faction has to offer, they are a good thing to aim for if you want to create the most powerful fleet possible.
