Don’t know who to put on your team of six? Then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a Mortal Kombat: Onslaught tier list, listing all of the currently playable characters in the game. We appreciate that the game is still in beta and that more characters will be added in 2023, so we’ll keep this guide updated as soon as new characters drop. Because of this, we recommend that you bookmark this page so that you never miss out on a new character.

Mortal Kombat: Onslaught is a new mobile gacha-RPG based on the Mortal Kombat fighting game. The game, being developed by NetherRealm Studios, is currently in beta, with a full release coming in 2023. In the game, you enlist a team of up to six Mortal Kombat characters, and fight through a campaign, unlocking a new battle after each that you win. The game features an idle combat system and allows you to drag special abilities over your characters as they fight to gain the upper hand.

Mortal Kombat: Onslaught Tier List

Here we’ll be listing all of the current characters in the game.

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.

Mortal Kombat: Onslaught Tier List FAQ

Now we’ll answer a bunch of questions you may have about Mortal Kombat: Onslaught 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 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 Mortal Kombat: Onslaught Tier List?

We used a combination of the following factors when deciding on our 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 Mortal Kombat: Onslaught for yourself.

How Often Do We Update Our Mortal Kombat: Onslaught 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.

As we said before, we expect that once the full game releases, there’ll be more characters added. Beyond the release, there may even be new characters added via updates. When this happens, we’ll keep this article updated, so we recommend that you bookmark this page.

You can also visit the official Mortal Kombat: Onslaught website. There’s not much on there at the moment, but you can sign up for a newsletter, which will help you stay better connected with the state of the game.

That just about does it for this tier list. Make sure you grab the game from the top of the page, check out the related articles in paragraph three, and check back frequently to see if there’s any new characters in Mortal Kombat: Onslaught.
