Tier List Descriptions

  • Tier S — These champions are incredibly strong. If you want to have a competitive edge over your enemies, you can’t really go wrong choosing these characters.

  • Tier B — Average, these champions are dependable and common choices within the current meta.
  • Tier C — Less popular than higher tier champions, these characters are generally considered to only be useful situationally.
  • Tier D — The lowest tier champions, these characters are generally the least popular picks and are generally considered to be less effective than higher tier champions.

Hunter Boyce is a writer, which probably seems pretty obvious with "author" prominently displayed. He mostly writes about video games. However, he was previously a mixed martial arts news writer. When not writing about people pelting each other in the face or about leveling up in the latest RPG, he tends to spend his time as a web producer in Atlanta.You can shout all of your MMA and video game related quandaries at him at @SomthinClever on Twitter. Feel free to make your demands to him in ALL CAPS. He loves that.


  1. If you are a newbie, DO NOT follow this so called ”tier list”.

    Koga’s been on the ground since 3 patches, has a wopping 43% win rate.
    Tyra is the meta since quite a while, outpacing Viktor is almost every aspect but for some reason this guy puts her into C tier.
    Zhin is the best Flank there is, but hes in B tier????
    Jenos is the most popular and competitive support there is, with an insane 54% win rate…

    I legit dont even know what were you smoking while making this tier list.

      Hey Arisha, I’m sorry you did not enjoy the tier list. However, I hope you continue to enjoy playing Paladins. Have a good day.

      Sorry, I’m still new at the game so there are many things that I don’t know yet. How can you know the winrate of every champion? Is there a site for Paladins like is for League of Legends or something like that?

      • You can use and see the actual data taken from hi-rez API.

        • Sekkey Phang

          Thank you so much! One more thing…I’m having a little trouble understanding the versions of the game, For example, I found a site called PaladinsDecks where they give deck recommendations and things like that, but the use numbers like 2.9, 2.8, OB65, etc. How do I know what the current version of the game is? There’s no mention of that in-game and I can’t find any site with complete patch notes and the number of the current version.

  2. This is all your opinion. Koga is surely not a S tier. You should rank this based on the amount of times people use these characters. Also making a tier list is quite useless since these champions is really based on how good the player is. Like for example “Your D tier Skye” many players can make her get a 25 kill streak if they are good enough. Even a Moji could get a 25 kill streak but if the player sucks then the Champion will also suck.

      Thank you for your input, Kaize D.

    • Hunter Boyce

      Hey, Kaize. Thank you for giving us feedback. Have a great day.

    • MesaJarJarBinks

      I don’t think you can make a non-biased tier list on paladins because if you are good at the character, then you can play and win games with it. This Hunter Boyce guy who made this is just a Koga main.

  3. alfie packham

    why is skys in the ‘d teir’, ive just started and she’s my firs champ

    • There is rarely a hero / champion that’s “bad.” Tier lists list which ones are usually played the most in competitive. If you do well with a hero, that means it’s an “S tier” for you personally.

  4. Incognito

    Speaking from competitive experience, this tier list is very off. I suggest checking out pro players tierlists such as Vex30 or randomnoobtv on Youtube.
