Exos Heroes is a gacha RPG that challenges you to explore a wide-open world as captain of your own airship. Along the way, you’ll pick up new characters, participate in a wide variety of combat scenarios, and collect a bunch of treasure. You know: the typical gacha RPG stuff.

You can learn more about Exos Heroes on the official site. If you’re a fan of the genre, don’t sleep on our other content. We’ve got a Space Leaper: Cocoon tier list, Summoners War: Chronicles tier list, and Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus tier list.

Tiers Explained

Before we move onto the tier list though, we thought we’d quickly explain what our tiers mean:

  • S Tier: These are the best characters currently available in the game, and you should definitely aim to add them to your party. They should also be the first choice to level up and gain access to equipment.
  • A Tier: These characters are perfect for filling gaps in a party – particularly when you haven’t unlocked enough S tiers, or there aren’t enough S tiers to fill a party in the first place. You should investigate these characters and see which one will counter your party’s weakness.
  • B Tier: Characters in this tier can really help during the early phases of the game, when you haven’t unlocked many characters, but they fade later on. Definitely use them when you lack S and A characters, but swap them out as much as possible.
  • C Tier: The only real difference between C and D tier is that C tier characters can occasionally have niche uses. They may be great at a particular game mode, or be exceptionally powerful early on. A late-game party shouldn’t have any though.
  • D Tier: We don’t recommend using these characters under any circumstance, unless you absolutely have to because you have nothing else. They underperform at all stages of the game, and in all game modes.

Below, we’ll rank all of the Exos Heroes characters from the heights of S tier to the depths of D tier.

Exos Heroes Tier List FAQ

Now we’ll answer a bunch of questions you may have about Exos Heroes or tier lists in general.

What Is A Tier List?

A tier list is a list of characters that you can unlock in a game – particularly a gacha game – ordered from best to worst. We rank from S tier to D tier, with S being best and D being worst.

The purpose of a tier list is to help you, the player, determine who the best characters to unlock are, so you can save time and money. Once you know who the best characters are, you can form a party out of them and ignore the others.

How Did We Pick Our Exos Heroes Tier List?

We used a combination of the following factors when deciding on our Exos Heroes tier list:

  • Personal experience
  • Community feedback
  • General consensus from other tier lists

However, it’s worth noting that tier lists are subjective by nature. This is based on our experience with the game, but yours may vary. So, we recommend that you take this with a pinch of salt and play Exos Heroes for yourself.

How Often Do We Update Our Exos Heroes Tier List?

We update this tier list regularly to ensure that it always follows the latest meta. Typically, you can expect an update around the following happenings:

  • A new character releases
  • Balance changes

There may be a small delay between the above two events as we’ll return to the game to check out the new character for ourselves, or to see how the balance patches have affected things.

And that will do it for this tier list. Make sure to grab the game via the links at the top of this page, check out our related guides on the third paragraph, and bookmark this page to check back for future updates.
