If multiplayer and character building are the things you yearn for, then Paladins is a game you should play in 2023. It’s a team shooter game that came out in 2018. Like Overwatch, you get to build a resounding character portfolio and use it against your enemies. The game has released around 45 playable characters so far with tweaked gameplay mechanics. It’s worth mentioning that the game is pure sci-fi based, which means you will be coming across a lot of weapons and powers that are not akin to our realm.
To explain further, the game makes use of the characters known as “Champions.” In simpler words, these champions correlate to the different types of classes you play with. Just like in Overwatch and other battle royale games, you have to win the last spot. So, if you want to know the bits of how the game functions and which character to go for at the end of the day, then read this paladins tier list that will aid in deciding..
- SS+ Tier – Need an upper hand? These champions are your best shot if you want to charge forward in multiple battles. Even the winning rate with these champions is at an all-time high. But do remember that your opponents can also wield the same champions, so try counter-acting their attacks.
- S Tier – The playable characters in this tier are as par the standard set by the champions in the SS+ tier. The only difference is that only a few of the abilities or characteristics are a buzzkill. Otherwise, you can use these champions to win multiple matches against your enemies.
- A Tier– If you are able to utilize these champions in the right way, then there’s no harm in using these characters. Although they are average and can be called on a 50/50 probabilistic ratio, they are worth a while if wielded properly. Also, you would need to coordinate these champions with your other teammates to exploit the full potential of these playable characters.
- B Tier– Not recommended for finalizing the champion. Yes, you can put them to use for practice and other matches, but they are quite nerfed down for the most part. It’s true that you can still use them in ranked matches, but at the end of the day, you will be at a loss.
