Counterside characters.
September 6, 2022: Counterside has launched on PC now through Steam, so we've tweaked the tier list to reflect that.

In May, a brand-new mobile anime RPG launched. And now, it's on PC, too. To get you off on the right side of release, we've braved its barren world to bring you this Counterside tier list for launch day. So if you're struggling to piece together a great time with your initial pulls, we're going to show you how.


Alongside simply ranking the best Counterside characters out there, we're going to explain the straightforward Counterside reroll process as well. There's no account resetting needed, here, so it's nice and fast to get the best team out of the gate.

We'll have more on Counterside as the days roll on. For now, though, check out what we know about the next Cookie Run: Kingdom maintenance period. That always means a new patch. For the latest, though, our Crunchy Chip Cookie toppings guide can help you build the new beast.

The above Counterside tier list includes SR, SRR, and A-SSR (short for Awakened SSR) units from across Global, SEA, and JP versions of the game.


We'll work to trim out any characters that aren't included in the Global version in the future and add them back as they release, but this is a good baseline Counterside tier list to check out if you're scoping out new pulls.

The Counterside reroll process includes many of the best characters in the Counterside tier list.

Counterside Reroll Steps - How to Start Fresh

The Counterside reroll steps aren't like most other gacha games these days. Though you can get a bunch of free pulls from the in-game mailbox right after the tutorial, there isn't a way to reset your progress and start fresh after using them.


Instead, the Counterside reroll feature is built right into the game via something like the Selective Recruitment banner. You're forced to do this during the main menu tutorial section, but it isn't immediately obvious how it works.

Instead of resetting your Counterside account to reroll that way, you instead get the chance to perform 30 ten-pull summons for free. You can only keep one result (and can't move back to any previous result when you pull again), but it's one way to get the SSR of your choice. Unless you're incredibly unlucky, anyway.

We'll have the best picks for that particular summon in a separate guide real soon. For now, though, check out our Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds tier list if you're playing that impressive mobile RPG as well.
