Arknights is a simple gacha game with a deep roster of unique characters. If you’re looking for ways to spice up your lineup, we’ve got the full list of operators and their rarities compiled here, so when it’s time to go recruiting or headhunting you know what your options are.
Arknights is all about gathering the best possible lineup to work your way through the game’s various stages and puzzles.
Unlike many games of its kind, there is no competitive multiplayer aspect to the gameplay, but that doesn’t you can get by with a weak lineup if you want to progress further into the world.
Our list of every character in the game will allow you to look for potential holes in your current roster of operators.

Casters are ranged attackers that are meant to target high-defense enemies.
While your physical units will deal a lot of damage, a well-placed Caster can keep up with and even outpace the physical units in many situations.
Defenders are stalwart guardians for the rest of your lineup.
If you’re getting barraged by enemy attacks, placing in a defensive unit like Hoshiguma will alleviate some of that incoming pressure.
Guards are meant to get in the fight and contribute right away. They’re a flexible class by nature and offer all kinds of different buffs.
The bonuses you get from the range of an operator like Ayerscarpe aren’t going to match up with the up-close skills of Beehunter, so it’s important to find the right synergy for your lineups.
Medics are exactly what they sound like. These characters will keep your frontline healthy as they protect your damage dealers.
Not all Medics operate the same way, so it’s important to account for which units are meant to stay in the back and who can get up front and hang with the brawlers.
Snipers are great low-cost options that both extend your range and combat the hordes of flying enemies in the game.
If you’re looking for a cheap way to keep yourself protected from aerial attacks, just about any of these characters should bolster your defense.
Specialists give your team advantages that reshape the flow of combat.
From Pushers and Pullers who can shift the opposition around the field to Controllers who offer more crowd-control effects, each of these characters brings a new level of strategy to the game.
Whether bringing out the big guns through summons or giving off a nice aura boost, supporters are meant to bolster their team through their utility rather than their combat.
The benefit to having a good supporter in your lineup is that your high-damage operators become stronger than ever when one is around to help them.
Usually used to generate more DP for your team, Vanguard operators get into the fight early and pull back just as fast as they arrived.
Employing these units will leave you weak in the long run, but if they find favorable matchups, the DP difference could be enough to boost you over the edge.
That’s it for our list of all the Arknights characters currently available in the game!
