June 13, 2022: The Blue Archive Hatsune Miku banner arrives tomorrow.

Looking for a list of every Blue Archive banner currently in the game? Like most mobile gacha games, Blue Archive uses a banner mechanic to let players summon new students for their party. However, some banners are limited-time, meaning if you want a character, you only have a certain window to recruit them. On top of that, you have a whole mess of banner rates and drop percentages to contend with, which is what actually determines whether you'll get who you want.

It's all a bit messy to be honest, but that's why we've created a Blue Archive banner list, detailing the current banners in the game, as well as the drop rates that game companies are legally obligated to display. Banners in Blue Archive are refered to as recruitment and they cost Pyroxene, which is the paid in-game currency, or Recruitment Tickets for the 3-star guaranteed recruitment banner.

If you're looking for some more gacha game content, we have a Revived Witch tier list, as well as an Arknights tier list and an Azur Lane tier list. That said, here are all of the Blue Archive banners available right now, along with their rates.

How To Get Recruitment Points in Blue Archive

As with a lot of other gacha games, Blue Archive gives you a pity resource that you can also use to summon or even get a guaranteed 3-star character, as with the Recruitment Ticket banner.

This resource is called Recruitment Points, and you get one Recruitment Point for every summon you make, costing 120 Pyroxene per. With ten summons, you get enough Recruitment Points for a Recruitment Ticket. If you somehow end up with 200 Recruitment Points, you can claim either of the featured banner characters, which are currently Mashiro or Aru.
