Hunter

Hunter is a character that you, yourself, create and choose the ways of playing that character. As the game prolongs, the way to play Hunter widens. That is because as you progress through the story, you’ll unlock even more cards for Hunter. You’ll have the option to go for either the Light or the Dark side later on in the game.

All the other characters are provided with a deck of around 12 cards. Hunter is capable of obtaining around 30 cards in their deck. 10 cards are given to each of the components as Hunter’s deck is divided into 3 components or branches. They are the Light, Dark, and Power.

Cards

Hunter has a few good cards that you can use in the fights. As we’ve already explained before, he has three different components. So, the cards revolve around these. However, you can use all of the cards. But I have listed some of the best cards down below.

  • Quick Slash
  • Wild Strike
  • Holy Burst
  • Summon Charlie

Wolverine

Wolverine is a character that relies on raw survivability through his self-healing passive. Not only that, his skill cards provide him with rapid healing through which he is able to heal himself directly. His attack style is a chain-based attack that enables him to deliver massive damage to multiple enemies at the same time. The ability to revive himself with his own skill card in high-level missions is what makes him a primarily essential character.

Moreover, Wolverine is one of the best multi-target damage dealers. He has numerous abilities that allow him to sprint around the battlefield, beating away weak enemies, along with his unique trait of taunting the enemy.

Cards

Here are some of the best Wolverine cards.

  • Eviscerate
  • Rapid Healing
  • Berserk

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme, is one of the most interesting characters to play with. Mainly because he can perform things, no other character can. He is primarily a Support based hero, along with some attack cards, but mainly support is focused. Even though he is one of the first characters that you will unlock, he has tons of powerful cards that make him useful throughout the game.

The Blade has the passive ability Cold Blooded. Using the ability, Blade will have a high chance of triggering the Bleeding effect onto enemies. Bleeding will come in handy in boss fights where it takes a lot of time for the effect to work.

Ghost Rider, the Spirit of Vengeance, is a damage dealer. To get the best out of him, you should pair him with a Support character. He often plans to take damage himself. That way, he will be able to dish out further damage to the enemies. If you keep the right deck of ability cards, you will be able to do insane damage to the enemies.

Final Words

If you are considering a character as the Best Character that you can play in Midnight Suns, that character should have a few necessary things. First of all, they should be perfect in their role. If they are damage dealing, then the damage must be high. If they are support, then the support should be spreadable to all heroes, not just one. Lastly, a tanky hero must be able to take enemies’ attention from the weaker characters.
