Currently, Punishing: Gray Raven characters are separated into numerous different categories, including rarity, type, and specialty. It's those that strike a balance between ease of access, ease of use, and content versatility that earn a place high up on the Punishing: Gray Raven tier list. Any character that isn't particularly versatile or struggles in all but one type of situation will fall further down.

It's worth noting that, like many similar gacha games, the best Punishing: Gray Raven characters aren't absolutely necessary to your progress through the game. Don't be put off if some of your favourites can't quite hold a candle to other characters on our Punishing: Gray Raven tier list. It's only the min-maxers that need to worry about this sort of stuff.

Punishing: Gray Raven breaks its characters (or frames) into multiple categories. One of these is the 'Type'. There are currently three frame types in the game. These are:

  • Attacker
    • Designed to deal the most damage, Attacker frames focus on offensive skills and specialties.
  • Tank
    • Tank-type frames generally feature rock-solid defences and high HP. Paired with shield abilities, they work to reduce incoming damage.
  • Support
    • Support-type frames tend to feature higher elemental damage properties over frames of other types. They use healing skills to restore their own HP and that of other frames in their team.
  • Pioneer
    • They have the role of Vanguard and have a default class of S-Rank
  • Amplifier
    • Amplifies statuses of allies, giving a massive advantage on the battlefield. Currently has default class of S-Rank.

Punishing: Gray Raven Energy Coefficient explained

Another major aspect of Punishing: Gray Raven characters is the type of damage they deal. Similar to the physical and ranged modifiers used in other RPGs, the frames of Punishing: Gray Raven deal physical and/or elemental damage depending on their Energy Coefficient.

Though some exclusively deal physical damage, others can infuse various amounts of elemental damage into their attacks. This can help or hinder the total damage they deal to certain enemies.

Punishing: Gray Raven Speciality explained

On top of the Type and Energy Coefficient listed in their profile, Punishing: Gray Raven characters have one or more talents featured as part of their Speciality listing. This is just a quick breakdown of their main gimmick in combat, such as their strong talent for healing, dealing area or mixed-type damage, or possessing the ability to switch how they attack completely.

How do you unlock Punishing Gray Raven characters?

For the most part, new Punishing Gray Raven characters are unlocked through the game's gacha system or through the in-game shop. Some, like Lucia Crimson Abyss, are even given away for free during pulls. How you unlock each character-pulling method differs, but they're generally unlocked by clearing more of the story.
