With the extensive list of characters in Blue Archive in recent days, players have been looking for ways to choose the right characters to build on rather than waste opportunities to summon others.

Our Blue Archive tier list offers the latest information about the list of characters, old and new, of Blue Archive from the strongest to the weakest of them all. We've also categorized them into proper groups for each situation.

The latest Blue Archive tier list that we've compiled has the latest rankings of the best Blue Archive characters you'll want to roll for and details on how to reroll properly, which we explain in-depth further down. We'll leave the particular plot details up to the game. There's combat, girls, and gacha. It's a general recipe for success, and you can get a major headstart by using our Blue Archive codes list.

If you're looking for only the best gacha games to add to your daily rotation of mobile games, we've got you covered. We're already prepping our Honkai: Star Rail tier list for that game's release. We even have an extensive World Flipper tier list that's worth checking out.

Strikers are there for the reason you'd expect: to attack. They're generally the top damage dealers, with plenty of ways to pad out their numbers and inflict even more hurt.

All that power comes at a cost, however. They're far less capable of taking a hit than the game's bulky tanks and are usually seen as target number one. Protect them, but be sure to build your team around enabling them to do their best work.

As ever, tanks are defensive characters designed to take a hit and convince enemies to target them instead of their softer allies. They stand at the front of the squad, commanding all eyes (and weapons) on them. Tanks typically use defensive-buffing abilities, stuns, and other forms of crowd control to not only force targets on them, but to mitigate incoming damage.

Support characters differ over healers in that they tend to specialize in crowd control, buffs, and debuffs. They're good for debilitating large groups of enemies or singling individuals out and can generally help weaker teams deal with stronger enemies. Buffs can pad out damage numbers, speed up allies, or make tanks even bulkier, leaving debuffs to reduce a target's stats or even lock their more powerful abilities.

Healers do exactly what you'd expect. Whether it's topping allies off before a big attack or resurrecting fallen friends, having at least one healer on your team is generally the best strategy. Tanks can soak up more damage, attackers can have a fighting chance of surviving a particularly potent combo, and supporters can be kept alive long enough to put a stop to a late-game strategy.

What are classes in Blue Archive?

Have an opinion on this article? We'd love to hear it!

As is fairly typical for character-based gacha games, Blue Archive's students each belong to one of four different classes, which determines their role in a fight. These are fairly self-explanatory, but here's roughly what they entail:

  • Attacker: Damage dealers and DPS
  • Tank: Defenders who tank damage
  • Support: Uses abilities to enhance other characters
  • Healer: Keeps other characters in the fight

This is a pretty basic explanation, as characters also have attack types, defence types, abilities, and roles, but these four classes give you a straightforward idea of how each student should ideally be utilised.

Here's how to perform a Blue Archive reroll.

How Do I Reroll in Blue Archive?

  • Open Blue Archive
  • Play through the tutorial and claim the launch rewards from your mail to earn your free pulls
  • Perform the pulls and see who you get
  • If you want someone else, tap the gear icon, then choose Reset Account from the Account tab
  • Start the game and play through the tutorial again to roll
  • Do this as many times as you want until you get your preferred starting character
  • Finally, link your account to earn some more Pyroxene

Performing a Blue Archive reroll is pretty simple. It will take some time to play through the tutorial sections, but you won't need to mess around with the game files to reset your data. Just follow the steps above and roll until you get the character(s) you want.
