Ranger 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 Ranger Tier List, we will list down some of the high tier choices for the Ranger role.

Instead of listing down all units, we will list down the top S-tier and A-tier units so you’ll know which ones are the top Ranger picks. Rangers are the ranged DPS of the game, usually having high ATK, HIT, and CRIT stats. They can be easily overwhelmed so they need to be protected by deploying Defenders or deploying them in the backline. Rangers are effective against enemy Defenders but are weak against Strikers.

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.

Kyle Wong
Ranger Tier List
This character is considered to be S-tier in PvE, PvP, and Raid contents, boasting really high ATK and Crit stats. His passive skill (Active Expansion) increases the strength of his basic attacks, he can summon a protective shield that stuns and aggroes enemies, and his ultimate skill deals massive AoE damage. This allows him to dominate any battlefield, whether it’s crowd-control or dealing consistent damage against tougher, single targets.

Rosaria le Friede
Ranger Tier List
One of the recent releases in the game, Rosaria is considered one of the top-tier DPS in the game right now. All of her skills can inflict AoE damage while also triggering various debuffs. She’s also an Air Type unit, hovering above the battlefield with her throne but still capable of attacking both air and ground targets. She can uses a pillar of flame to damage enemies up front but she can also stomp on enemy air units, knocking them backward with AoE damage. Her passive skill allows her to increase her ATK by 1.5% for every kill, up to 15%. At skill lv5, this passive also grants her immunity to all damage for a few seconds after entering the field.

Her special skill can hit multiple enemies up front, dealing AoE damage and hitstun. At skill level 5, this skill’s cooldown will reset upon redeployment while also inflicting Hitstun to enemies in Special Mode. Finally, her ultimate inflicts massive AoE damage and levitates the enemies. At skill lv5, her ultimate skill’s cooldown will be reduced by 15s upon redeployment.

Shin Jia
Ranger Tier List
Shin Jia has a considerably high CRIT. While her ATK is somewhat lackluster compared to the other DPS-focused rangers in this list, she makes up for it in utility. Her passive skill allows her to buff her and her allies’ Attack Speed as soon as she enters the field. At skill level 5, this passive also increases her and her allies CRIT by 200. Her special skill allows her to create clones of herself with 70% of her ATK and HP. This enables her to increase her damage output while also maintaining consistent field presence to take the aggro from enemies while engaging them at the same time. Finally, her ultimate skill deals massive damage while also knocking enemies backward.

Elizabeth Pendragon
Ranger Tier List
Elizabeth boasts amazing offensive ATK and CRIT, even exceeding Kyle in those aspects. Unlike other rangers, Elizabeth uses daggers as her mains of attacking at range. Her passive, special, and ultimate skills all deal AoE damage. Her special attack can even reduce her damage taken while performing the skill up to 80%. Finally, her ultimate skill deals massive AoE damage while also stunning enemies for 5 seconds. At skill level 5, the skill will always inflict CRIT damage to enemies.

Ranger Tier List
Gaeun is quite a looker but she has the skills to boot. Like the other top-tier rangers we have covered so far, Gaeun boasts considerable ATK and CRIT stats. She may only have a pistol at her disposal but her attacks offer great utility in the battlefield. Her passive allows her to deal AoE damage for every 3rd basic shot while also decreasing the target’s Attack Speed. Her special allows her to dodge a target, deal AoE damage and stun the target(s). Finally, her ultimate skill deals massive AoE damage. At skill level 5, her ultimate also gets a 2 second cooldown for every 3rd attack she makes.

Seo Yoon
Ranger Tier List
Seo is a free SSR character every player gets after completing Chapter 1 of the main story. However, this doesn’t mean that she’s a pushover either. On top of having decent stats, all her attack skills deal AoE Damage. Her passive skill also gives all allies on the field a 20% ATK boost for 10 seconds. At skill level 5, this will become a 30% attack boost instead. Her special skill deals AoE damage and lowers the enemy’s attack speed as well.

Kim Sobin
Ranger Tier List
Don’t let her meek and innocent look fool you. She packs a punch for an SR character, boasting considerable ATK and CRIT stats. Her passive, special, and ultimate skills all deal AoE damage, making her a great asset for dealing with multiple enemies. While she excels in PvE, she won’t be that much of a help in PvP matches.

This concludes our Counter:Side Ranger Tier List. Please check out our other pages within the guide for more helpful tips and information about the game.
