Counterside Tier List: PvE & PvP [Global & SEA]

Whether you like the SEA server or the Global one, our post wraps Counterside from every aspect.

Did you see our Counterside Global tier list? The thrills of the Global server forced us to write about it first, but now that we are out from its bewitches, here’s a comprehensive Counterside tier list. The rankings below primarily address the SEA version (PvE and PvP meta both) while also giving flashbacks of Global. 

Update: This tier list reflects all adjustments introduced in the March 20, 2024 patch update.
Key Highlights
  • Counterside offers multiple competition gaming modes–SEA and Global, as well as two very different metas–PvE and PvP. 
  • Altogether, Counterside features more than 200 unlockable characters across all its modes and meta. 
  • The ranking is even more complex, but we did it.
  • We graded each playable unit based on Counterside critical partial ratings, including the Raid, Danger Close, Guild Croop, Shadow Palace, Relic Dungeons, Story, and Dive 45-50. 
  • Overall efficiency was seen as the most detrimental ranking factor.

Best Characters Of Counterside SEA 

SEA Characters
Best Characters of Counterside SEA Tier List

As promised with our every tier list, here are the characters you should look for in Counterside SEA. They are simply the cream of the crop and will help the entire crew surpass even the toughest of stages instantly. 


SEA PvE Rank S-Tier SEA PvP Rank S-Tier
Role Striker Type Mech
Rarity SSR Movement and Attack Style Ground
HP 28,642 ATK 4,807
DEF 1,075 CRIT 706
HIT 732 EVA 111
Skills Basic Attack, Accuracy Stabilization OS, Eternium Acceleration, and Reinforced Barrier Coating

*The table mentions numerical stats based on Counterside Level 100. 

Ifrit will take down every type of opposing frontline faced in PVP grounds while also being able to absorb a bunch of hits herself to keep Ingrid and Spira in check. Seeing how critical of a must-have unit Ifrit is when off ban? 

All in all, Ifrit possesses surprisingly extra tankiness for a DPS personality, even before the level 5 barrier. She’s also got DEF penetration as if her AIR-hitting ability wasn’t already amusing enough for a striker. 

Awakened Jake

SEA PvE Rank S-Tier SEA PvP Rank S-Tier
Role Defender  Type Counter 
Rarity ASSR Movement and Attack Style Ground
HP 69,977 ATK 4,788
DEF 1,457 CRIT 285
HIT 551 EVA 600
Skills Basic Attack, Stormbringer, Lightning Charge, and Man of Storm

*The table mentions numerical stats based on Counterside Level 100. 

He simply makes a Mech’s life unbearable by tanking them like a pro and inflicting crazy amounts of damage to ultimately CC them to their last breaths. Due to such Mech resistance capabilities, Awakened Jake can ace battles from various modes. 

In short, Awakened Jake doesn’t usually perform against anyone else, but that doesn’t make him weak. It’s just he’s more niche specific, and fortunately, that niche is pretty broad, so you don’t have to worry so much about that. 

Xiao Lin

SEA PvE Rank S-Tier SEA PvP Rank A-Tier
Role Sniper Type Counter
Rarity SSR Movement and Attack Style Ground
HP 19,597 ATK 7,794
DEF 38 CRIT 886
HIT 2,171 EVA 56
Skills Basic Attack, Falcon Insight, Mozambique Drill, and Door Knocker

*The table mentions numerical stats based on Counterside Level 100. 

Haven’t you experienced a thrilling show of pure damage dealing in Counterside yet? Then look no further than Xiao Lin, the most extraordinary hero of that kind. Players can literally stack up complete CRIT DMG and then see Xiao Lin send it off as damage skyrockets in an instant. 

Rita Arsenico

SEA PvE Rank S-Tier SEA PvP Rank S-Tier
Role Support  Type Counter 
Rarity SSR Movement and Attack Style Air
HP 29,755 ATK 4,028
DEF 326 CRIT 531
HIT 770 EVA 641
Skills Basic Attack, Omerta, Metal Disintegration, and Dark Matter

*The table mentions numerical stats based on Counterside Level 100. 

This one is not an offense-oriented Counterside character, but because of her hatred for Mechs, similar to Awakened Jake’s cases, she ends up outputting decent damage. Rita Arsenico is one of the best support for every type of team in PvP. 

Overall, Rita Arsenico packs massive perks for a support unit and absolutely shines against Mechs in PvE. Though she owns a low DEF, Rita’s ability to always lurk in the air saves her from most incoming damage, making her even favorite amongst all team compositions.

That’s all for our Counterside SEA and Global Tier List. Honestly, Counterside isn’t like any RPG. Instead, it’s way too unique, and so is the winning style it fosters. 

Counterside Tier List Criteria 

We have put in a lot of effort and, most importantly, tons worth of time playing and researching to construct this Counterside tier list. We’ve weighed every character way too carefully in order to highlight for you the best ones, so you don’t have to.

To choose the perfect spot for each in-game unit, we skimmed through a multitude of online resources as well as sat with veteran Counterside players of all servers and modes. 

This helped us gather reliable information and understand placements across different servers to put forth the most comprehensive overall ranking and guide ultimately. 

Feedback prevailing in the gamers community was also considered to induce as much general tone as possible so players of every style could be adequately catered. 

Nevertheless, it goes without saying that our Counterside posts are subject to frequent changes, given the constantly updating mechanics of the game. And because such can result in characters undergoing some serious jump of ranks, don’t miss checking back often!
