Not sure which unit does the best shooty violence? Our Gundam Evolution tier list is here to help with that. In this guide, we rank all of the big metal giants from the heights of S tier to the depths of D tier to help you figure out which one to pick. We keep it updated as often as new mechs arrive, or alongside balance patches, so we recommend that you bookmark this page and check back soon. That way, you’ll always have a strong idea of the meta.

Gundam Evolution is a free-to-play unit shooter based on the hit anime series of (nearly) the same name. It features your favourite characters from the show, which we’ll rank in order of best to worst below, as well as high speed strategic shooting combat. Publisher Bandai Namco plans to post regular updates to the shooter as well, with new units, maps, and more joining the fray as time goes on.

You can learn more about the new 6v6 shooter on the official site. If you like games like this, make sure to check out our T3 Arena tier list, Destiny 2 codes, and Warframe codes.

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.

Now, we’ll rank all of the Gundam Evolution units from the heights of S tier to the depths of D tier.

S Tier

These units are as close to a guaranteed win as you can get. They’re super powerful in all instances, and you’ll have a great time playing as them.

  • Gundam Barbatos
  • Mahiroo
  • Sazabi

A Tier

A tier units aren’t quite the easy win of S tier, but master them and you’ll walk away the victor more times than not.

  • Asshimar
  • DOM Trooper
  • GM Sniper II
  • Gundam Exia
  • Unicorn Gundam
  • GM
  • GN-002 Gundam Dynames
  • Nu Gundam
  • CAT1-X1/3 Hyperion Gundam Unit 1
  • Gundam Heavyarms Custom
  • Zeta Gundam

B Tier

These units require mastery to get the most out of, and even then may struggle. Not bad by any means, but unexceptional.

  • Gundam RX-78-2
  • Pale Rider
  • Zaku II (Melee)
  • Zaku II (Ranged)
  • GNX-Y901TW

C Tier

C tier units can have niche uses, but generally underperform and aren’t worth using if you can help it.

  • Guntank
  • Marasai (UC)
  • Methuss

D Tier

These are the worst units in the game right now, and are best avoiding.

  • Turn A Gundam

Gundam Evolution Tier List FAQ

Now we’ll answer a bunch of questions you may have about Gundam Evolution 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 Gundam Evolution Tier List?

We used a combination of the following factors when deciding on our Gundam Evolution 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 Gundam Evolution for yourself.

How Often Do We Update Our Gundam Evolution 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.

But that’s going to do it for our Gundam Evolution tier list. Make sure to bookmark this page to keep an eye on the meta, grab the game via the links at the top of this page, and check out the related content in the third paragraph.
