Want to pick the best units to form your team in Squad Busters? In the new free-to-play brawler made by the Supercell team, you can recruit famous characters from their games such as Clash of Clans, Boom Beach, and many others, to fight in 10-person multiplayer matches. With a total of 27 characters available, each with their own status, abilities, and evolutions, learning what are the most powerful ones will come in handy.

If you’re feeling lost with so many options of characters, don’t fret. Our Squad Buster tier list is here to help you. In this list, we ranked from best to worst all the characters in the game, giving you a good idea about who you should look for to form an epic squad.

Squad Buster Tier List

Below you'll find our rankings of the best and worst characters in Squad Busters:

Tier Unit
S-tier Barbarian King, Hog Rider, Medic, Archer Queen
A-tier Greg, Chicken, Max, Battle Healer, Shelly, Witch, Wizard
B-tier Heavy, Barbarian, Colt, Mavis, Nita, Royale King, Tank
C-tier ElPrimo, Bea, Bo, Mortis, Pam, Penny
D-tier Globin, Trader, Dynamike

This tier list is based on our own playtime with the game, but we have also taken into consideration the opinions of creators like Marinaul, ChisgulePlays, and Bren. To make this list, we've taken into consideration how each character performs individually and in a group. At the same time, we believe that it’s important to consider how well they work in terms of farming and movement. Another important aspect to consider when selecting characters is their rarity since a strong Common character is better than an Epic but weak one.
