some of the best characters in our MultiVersus tier listWarner Bros / Fandom

With such a good roster to choose from, our MultiVersus tier list has everything you need to choose the right character for both 1v1 and 2v2 game modes this season.

Currently, MultiVersus’ roster features a total of 19 characters, with more to join in the coming days. The game has two modes – 1v1 and 2v2, and the efficiency of these characters differs from mode to mode. Some perform better solo while others excel when teaming up.

Their unique skill sets either prove their melee prowess or make them unstoppable from a range. Whatever game mode you choose, opting for the right character according to the best-suited playstyle is key.

For our MultiVersus tier list, we have broken down each character from best to worst in both modes of the game. If you’re wondering which one to choose, we’ve got all of the information you need.

MultiVersus tier list: Best characters for 2v2 mode

If you’re hopping into the game for the first time, you’ll see only four characters unlockedShaggy, Jake the Dog, Harley Quinn, and Tazmanian Devil. You need to unlock the rest of the 15 characters by either grinding or buying Founder’s Packs.

As a result, it can be overwhelming to choose to unlock the right character at first. This is where our tier list comes into play, which will help you to make your choices much easier.

All characters will be sorted from S to C tiers. This means that those in the S-tier are the best characters, while C-tier will include the characters that are better to avoid in competitive matches.

If you want to jump straight to the 1v1 tier list, you can do it from here.

S-Tier MultiVersus characters

As we mentioned earlier, the characters mentioned in the table below are some of the best to compete in the game. Bugs Bunny and Finn have been dominating the lobbies lately.

They are two of the best Mage and Assassin characters while Batman and Velma play different roles.

B-Tier MultiVersus characters

B-tier characters are generally average and it’s no different for MultiVersus. The ones mentioned in the table below are not too effective in 2v2. They can be a great option to pair up with some of the characters from the S and A tiers.

C-Tier MultiVersus characters

If you want to maximize your chances of winning a 2v2 match, avoid these characters in the game. Similar to the B-tier characters, they can also be an option to match with that of the superior tiers. But then again, they are not very effective.

MultiVersus tier list: Best characters for 1v1 mode

Now let’s look at some of those characters that can prove to be a great choice in the 1v1 mode. The classification of the characters in this list is similar to 2v2.

As the tiers fall, the efficiency of the characters also gets lessened.

S-Tier characters

Bugs Bunny and Finn are equally useful in both 1v1 and 2v2 game modes. They are quite well-rounded as fighters and their character roles play a crucial role during clutch situations. Harley Quinn can also prove to be a worthy replacement for Finn, but the choice is yours.

A-Tier characters

In this tier, some of the top choices are Velma, LeBron, and Tom & Jerry. They are a significant challenge to the ones in the S-tier and can often pull off a victory when it’s the least expected. Jake and Taz are some worthy replacements for LeBron James.

B-Tier characters

Similar to 2v2, the B-tier characters for 1v1 are not recommended. If you want to have fun and see how the other characters play in the game, you may opt to choose them.

Now that Morty has landed in the multiverse, and while we await the addition of Rick down the line, here’s a bunch of Morty’s easter eggs that you can find inside the game.

C-Tier characters

Try to avoid the characters in this tier as much as possible for the 1v1 mode. They can be a great duo in the more popular mode but are not optimal for going solo.
