The lightweight battlesuit is already equipped for battle. To fully utilize the Nexus System, one must put on the hefty version and connect to a powerful power source. This battlesuit has a power output comparable to Emperor-class Honkai Beasts when powered by a battleship-class power source.


However, continuous use and operation might overwhelm the entire outfit. Nexus System has any safety design features because it was created to push things to their absolute boundaries.

As a result, the Far East Branch considered this approach to be the last choice to be applied only in the most dreadful circumstances. But while confronting formidable foes, Himeko Murata won’t think twice about donning this battlesuit.

Murata himeko (Kriegsmesser)

Murata Himeko

Despite being a terrible drinker who would even drink while teaching, Himeko is a capable leader and generally dependable at work.


When the lives of others are at risk, she fights bravely and perhaps recklessly but never gives up. She has a strong work ethic since despite having no prior combat experience, she managed to join the Assault Squad after arduous training.

Kallen (Imayoh ritual)

In the video game Kallen Fantasy VII, Kallen wore this battlesuit. Despite being a mystical armor that a mysterious man gave to Kallen, it has a strong mecha and high-tech aura about it. Dual pistols and a cruciform gun turret are built within the battlesuit for combat.


Sadly, these battlesuits place a heavy burden on the user to achieve their stated objectives of “effective squad-level firepower from a single Valkyrie unit.” Such prerequisites for general-purpose fighting could only be met by a very small number of Schicksal Valkyries. The ultimate capability of this battlesuit could only be unlocked by the legend herself.

Kallen (Sundenjager)

Theresa (Violet Executor)

Highly elastic materials are used in the construction of the top. A heavy plate is used to build the armored skirt. When Theresa walks across the battlefield, the skirt’s spikes have the potential to shred foes. However, compared to Theresa’s typical (or more usual) combat technique, such designs felt a little strange.


Theresa (Sakuno rondo)

When Theresa was dragged into Yae Sakura’s Stigmata Space, this was the shape of her will. Theresa was initially dressed in a small rendition of a Far Eastern Miko attire; but, when she merged with Yae Sakura’s stigmata abilities, she underwent a transformation.


Tier List Criteria

After spending a lot of time playing the game ourselves, we have created the ultimate tier list. We examined heroes in the optimal environment to achieve the best grade possible. Every tier list is disputed and ours is no different.

The Honkai Impact Tier List’s main goal is to showcase the best characters in the game depending on how powerful and skilled they are in comparison to other characters. This covers things like damage output, health reserves, and general combat utility. However, you should be aware that the meta and level of each hero might vary with each update.

To determine which heroes are most beneficial for you, the situation you’re in, and your level of advancement, you should try each one on your own. Observe the strategies that other players are implementing as well. In the comments box below, let us know which characters do you favor?
