Not sure which warriors to add to your warband? Well, fear not, for our Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus tier list is here to save the day. In this guide, we rank all characters from the heights of S tier to the depths of D tier to help you create the best party. We keep it updated too, alongside balance patches and new updates, so we recommend bookmarking this page and checking back frequently. That way, you’ll never miss out on free stuff.

Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus is a brand new gacha MMORPG that takes place in the Warhammer universe. You collect heroes, equip them with gear, and create a warband out of them. At that point, it’s a case of participating in turn-based battles to prove your dominance. You can take advantage of terrain, positioning, and the unique abilities of each of your troops to obliterate your enemies.

You can learn more about the game on the official site. If you’re a fan of games like this, we’ve got plenty more where this comes from. Grab our AFK Arena codes, Bloodline: Heroes of Lithas codes, and Counter:Side codes to help you get started.

Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus Tier List

Now, let’s move straight onto the 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 troops from the heights of S tier to the depths of D tier

Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus Tier List FAQ

Now that you’re familiar with our two tier lists, here’s a bunch of questions you might have about Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus or tier lists answered.

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 Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus Tier List?

We used a combination of the following factors when deciding on our Disney Mirrorverse 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 Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus for yourself.

How Often Do We Update Our Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus 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.
