Counter Side Tier List


Last Updated:
Counter:Side is a side-scroller, hero collector title that features an engaging story, smooth combat system, wonderful art, and interesting characters. The game’s roster has several characters and units that fill different roles in the squad. In our Counter Side Tier List, we will list down some of the high tier choices for each role.

Disclaimer: Tier Lists are not meant to be a standard or something that will dictate your squad-building experience to the point that it will sap your enjoyment of the game. Use Tier Lists as a guide (as it is intended to be). The characters in our tier list are arranged based on our own opinions and what the other players think as well. Our recommendation is to follow your preference and build your squad based on your favorite units, as long as you make it work and it gives you satisfaction.

Counter Side Roles

Each unit has its own type, roles (class), and skills that will each play a great role in their performance on the battlefield. There are four different types of units: Counters, Soldiers, Mechs, and others.
* Counters: These are special combatants that have a high deployment cost but are able to unleash special and ultimate skills.
* Soldiers: These are generic soldiers that have low stats, won’t be able to use special or ultimate skills and will usually come in groups.
* Mechs: These are mechanical units with high basic stats and respond to enemy attacks rather quickly. Some mech units can also use special attacks.

Counter Side Role Advantages

There’s also a “Role Advantages” mechanic in play; meaning roles can deal more damage to the roles they’re effective against while also receiving lesser damage from roles they’re strong against. You can refer to the chart below for more information. It is recommended to have a squad composed of units with different roles to cover any weaknesses. One good example is deploying a Defender in front of your team to decrease any incoming damage to your team and your ship. The Protect mechanic applied to your allies and ship is not applied to the Defenders themselves.
Counter Side Tier List

Aside from the roles, you’ll also need to take note of the unit’s attack type. Some units can only attack ground targets while some can only target aerial enemies. Preferably, have a good number of units that can attack both air and ground targets. Ships and bosses are considered to be both ground and air targets.
