Best Heroes (Tier List) – Battle Night: Cyber Squad 2021

battle night best heroes

Let’s talk about heroes in Battle Night. As you know, it’s a grind to actually upgrade them so you should choose wisely what heroes you want to spend your attention to. I have build a tier list that I frequently update to help you see what heroes are worth it and which ones are not.

As with every tier list, this also includes personal opinions and some heroes are debatable (what you can kindly comment below in the comments).

So, let’s get started.

Best Heroes in Battle Night – Tier List

Before we will get into the list, let me give some annotations to the list…

Tiers

The tiers are S > A > B > C with the “+” ones giving those heroes a small boost when they are in between tiers or simply are stronger than their “base” tier.

Within the tiers, the heroes are pretty much un-ranked. This means, just because multiple heroes have the “S” tier doesn’t mean that the one higher in the list is “more S Tier” than the other. This is just the sorting of the table tool. S Tier means S Tier.

Hero Tier PvE PvP Info
Raphael S++ S++ S++ Best hero in battle Night and useful in any team setup (even at purple). His dodge prayer mechanics will heal and negate the current and previous hit and this makes him so hard to kill (enemy needs to hit basically twice through dodge).
Samuel S+ S+ S+ Would rank him as 2nd best hero in Battle Night but not as strong as Raphael. Works in every team and can make most of your team immune to crowd control and buffs your whole team very well overall.
Poll S S S Very constant DPS all around and carry through most parts of the game. Takes on the easiest target first. Only problem is that his health is not that much and his burst can be easily countered by Raphael’s healing.
Mikaela S S S Very strong debuffer that removes crit and attack from enemies as well as deflect their healing. Only gets most effect when combined with a hero that applies burn damage to enemies.
Nymeria S S S Unlike her stats show she’s actually better as tank than as an attacker. Can apply DoT with her high dodge mechanics.
Wassily S S S Turn out to be a monster AoE and sustain DPS at A3, but isn’t strong at purple. Does crazy crit damage.
Arngreene S S S Good tank but you need to spend a ton of money and have high VIP to have him.
Misteltein S S S Great DPS hero but also glasscannon. Her role is to basically rip enemies on turn one and if that fails she will go down really fast. Useful in many situations but can be squishy.
Iggy S S S
battle night sayungSayung S S S Sustain AoE DPS hero and less glasscannon compared to Mistelstein but his kit needs crit to work well.
Beamon S S S Good tank and DPS hero but does damage based on him losing health. In the right situations he can pull off insane damage but needs accurracy.
Gilbert S- S A+ One of the hardest-hitting heroes in Battle Night with insane single-target crits. Also immune to control. His weakness is when his one-hit-kill mechanics don’t work (dodge, HP pool, missing), he will sleep next round and do nothing. Squishy at times.
Phoebe S- A+ S Good crowd control and also a fast hero and can also act as off tank and with the right teams she can help nuke enemies away with her stun.
Vidar S- S A+ Overall probably the best tank in Battle Night and also decent damage. Weak against multiple DPS enemies as Vidar can only take one of them into duel.
Shreateh A+ A+ A+ Support and tank with good DPS and high HP. Slow and low def though.
Nintu A+ A+ A+ DPs with a lot of AoE. Can stun but rely on applying her marks to snowball, but that is not happening that frequently.
Charlotte A+ A+ A+ One of the best early game tanks with self heals and can sustain a lot. Only downside is she can’t really taunt so she often ends up as last survivor (what you don’t want a tank to be).
Beckinsale A+ A+ A+ Applies marks and then blows enemy up and has some healing and damage immunity. Deals solid DPS and the marks can’t get dodged, but is no outstanding DPS hero.
Harpe A+ A+ A+ Odd DPS hero with damage over time with extra attack. The problem is that DoT will get removed often and his damage output rely on that, he’s not that overwhelming later in the game.
Legolas A+ A+ A+ Also a DPS hero that uses and needs DoT to stack to really work. Often that’s not possible but passive and normal attacks are really strong to still make a good appearance.
Dreyfus A+ A+ A+ Also odd DPS hero as he needs to be attacked to work well (and also has taunt for that). Needs to get a ton of dodge and he will deal insane damage.
Gassol A+ A+ A+ Aoe damage over time (DoT) support hero that will spread his DoT around and buffs your backline heroes.
Sone A A+ A Good damage and DPS support and debuffs for the enemy. His weak spot is his health and defense so he’s fragile and he needs to go first to really pack a punch.
Garuda A A A+ Probably the best healer for Tamer and can heal up DPS heroes well as she gives them bloodsucking and can remove DoT.
A-Zhao A A A+ Kind of weird skill kit that needs to kill enemies and her team to proc her abilities. More a hero you want to use early to mid-game.
Kratos A A A+ Nice AoE damage but bad early in the game. Later he will become really good and is able to tank as well. Only downside is that he’s slow.
Skadi A A A+ Low damage but good crowd control. Falls off later in the game.
Westerly A- B A+ His healing depends on his attacks and grants additional rage for your team and can clear DoT. Max out at purple so keeping him alive at late game is hard, but he’s still useful in situations.
Phonoi A- B A+ Nature camp support hero similar to Minamoto but boosts team survivability by lowering enemy accuracy.
Christina A- A+ B Pure AoE DPS hero and needs crit to really make an impact.
Minamota B+ B A Provides healing and dodge in the time in between. More powerful early in the game when accuracy isn’t that common. Fades out later in the game.
Fino B+ A B Support hero that will buffs your team’s accuracy well and also debuffs the enemy team. Not that useful earlier in Battle Night but can become niche counter to Nymeria or Mina/Phonoi teams.
Caitlyn B B B Might be useful very early in the game but after that becomes a pure fodder hero.
Patroclus B B B Great tank early and mid game but falls off later.
Grinborth B B B Hard to rank as you will get him in VIP packages and need him to evolve other paid heroes, so spend his copies as rarely as possible.
Elva C+ B C Applies silence and is good for crowd control and can heal when striked critical. Still a hero you shouldn’t use past lvl 40.
Naomi C+ B C Works mid-game alright with having two of her in the team that can avoid the tanks and can stun backline enemies but gets useless late-game.
Arteta C+ C B Not really worth using except for fill early game. Fodder material.
Cassini C+ B C Can block skill usage of the enemies but is pure early game crowd control hero that falls off later in the game.
Caledon C+ B C Has a built-in counterattack and serves as early game tank but falls off later in the game.
Arae C+ C B Applies DoT but her damage hasn’t large multipliers so just serves as fodder hero later in the game.
Mayne C C C Specific fodder hero to Zhao so always keep 3 copies of her around.
Tiger C+ B C Sustain DPS hero and his damage is permanently increasing when any unit dies (ally or enemy). Can be used to cheese but that’s only useful in some scenarios and squishy.
Camilla C+ B C You need her to get Kratos to purple so don’t do anything else with her than collecting the copies.
Lyse C+ B C Okayish AoE support hero using damage over time but low base attack and needs to run with other DoT heroes to actually do anything.
Thane C+ B C Might be useful very early in the game but after that becomes a pure fodder hero.
Evelynn C+ B C Used to evolve Dreyfuss so keep her copies to do that.
Attis C+ B C AoE DPS that can synergize with crowd control heroes and bypass the frontline. More a hero you use early and mid-game and falls off compared to other AoE DPS heroes later.
Daria C+ B C You need her copies to evolve Samuel so always have 3 copies of her around.
Heloise C C C Necessary to evolve Poll to purple so always keep at least 3 copies of her. Not really useable in your squad anyway.
Finley C C C Doesn’t solve any purpose other than fodder for other heroes within Machine camp.
Black C C C Doesn’t solve any purpose other than fodder for other heroes within Machine camp.
Leah C C C You need her to evolve Phoebe to purple so don’t use her for anything else.
Archer C C C These are your fodder blues that you use to upgrade usable blues to purple.
Dawn C C C These are your fodder blues that you use to upgrade usable blues to purple.
Rowen C B B Pure fodder hero.
Khun C C C Main fodder heroes for the martial faction.
Billy C C C Main fodder heroes for the martial faction.
Hanna C C C Support hero that prevents crits by rebuffing enemies. Especially early in the game weaker as crit is not that much of an issue there but becomes more important later. But she can’t evolve past purple so by the time her debuffs would be nice it’s really hard to keep her alive.
Caroline C C C Might be useful very early in the game but after that becomes a pure fodder hero.
Eunice C C C Applies DoT when she crits and only attacks frontline so many ways to counter her directly. Not really useful.
Tucci C C C Might be useful very early in the game but after that becomes a pure fodder hero.
Alisha C C C Pure fodder hero.

  1. Any list that doesn’t have ralph as the top tier character is worthless. Ralph is basically mandatory until they make a newer healer that can out due him.

  2. This list is a joke… Nintu, Vidar and Sone are all > Nymeria, both pve and pvp. Nym can still be a decent tank but dodge meta got needed several updates ago.

    Also, that you have Ralph rated as A+ when as the most legit healer, he is most OP and essential toon in the fame, both pve and pvp, is just…. leaves me speechless.

    which Mine and PVE chapter are you on and which PVP league do you normally end up on in your server?

  3. this list is flawed. only gold characters can be awakened up to 3 times (AW1, AW2, AW3). You must understand that in almost every case, A3 > A2 > A1 because of the insane stat jumps. There are very very few ‘special cases’ notably if you have an A3 Vidar then a secondary A1(or lesser) Vidar may surpass many other A2 or A3 hero in performance because of synergy in applied buff marks. However as mentioned, in most cases A3 > A2 > A1 almost always. Just compare the stat difference and you will understand why. So how can a purple hero be better than any gold hero that can be awakened? This list is terribly flawed it is useless.

  4. Hi, thank you So much for this list. The forum on Reddit is a disaster. No info there from experienced players. The best advice they give is “look at people with the highest power and see what characters they’re using”. Anyway, your list is excellent, can i ask though why you’d rate Gold kratos where he is, but not rank a Purple one? Same with Nymeria. You only have the gold one, I’ve been using the purple version and she’s fantastic because of all that dodge also, Were would you put her in the pist? I’m sure you’ve done the same with others, oh yes like there’s no purple Raphael, and thats basically what 60% of the site is usin while saving up for the gold hehe. Anyway. the list is great, But do you REALLY rate Garuda that high? one of the best purples? Sure if you put her in there and you fight a team around your power level she’ll help keep you alive a little, but without using halidoms on your stroner characters to add 30% chance of convertin attack to healing, she doesn’t stand a CHANCE versus Raphael. When i’m usin Garuda, i notice my team can be on 50% life the whole fight, and they go down.. and down.. never getting topped off so they’re vulnerable to a crit. Anyway…

    Can i add that Naomi is also WAY above the rating you gave her, C+/B/C .. maybe you haven’t used her? If you don’t have a decent fill in to use with Harpe and Poll, she’ll do great for a while, she heals herself and does decent damage. I’m not joking, while leveling up, around the 5 – 8 million power, she often gets near the highest rating in the team after the fight. Check her out in good gear again.

    Finally you have a blue Caitlyn above alot of purples. I’ve seen this before, people ratins blues as playable up in the 7 – 8 – 9 millions… NO lol. Even if you’re suggesting Samuel. They just get hit too hard even with stacked gear and get one shotted lol. Also, wheres the purple and blue Samuel’s ratings? This list needs to be completed properly my friend, as anyone who’s oin to actually need to use it, will be usin those Purple versons of the better heros you know?

    Brilliant list otherwise!!!!
