Mobile Legends Tier List

With over 70 million monthly players, Mobile Legends (ML) takes its place as one of the most popular mobile games to date. The multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game has a hefty character count of 103 heroes, each having its own move set and playstyle.

With so many heroes to choose from, it can be a bit daunting to figure out which ones to keep as your main. The fact that most heroes need to be unlocked using in-game currency also adds to the pressure of mastering the right hero quickly.

To offer a small respite from this dilemma, we made a definitive ranking of all Mobile Legends heroes. This list ranks them according to their strength, effectiveness in team fights, and utility.

With this list as your guide, you are on your way to becoming the best ML player you can be.

S-Tier

Mobile Legends Tier List Tier S

Heroes in this tier are considered overpowered and must-picks/banned for any competitive match. They have the tools to excel by themselves but also spare some of that utility to complement different team compositions.

Unlock these heroes first if you want to start mastering the core best heroes in the game early.

A-Tier

Mobile Legends Tier List Tier A

These heroes constitute the upper echelons of the game’s current meta.

You’ll likely face off against these heroes often because they’re not as overpowering as those in S-Tier; meaning they don’t get banned as much in competitive matches.

B-Tier

Mobile Legends Tier List Tier B

B-Tier heroes are still part of the game’s meta. Under the right hands, these heroes can perform just as well as their A and S-tier counterparts. Inherently, they have a few flaws that balance out their good qualities.

Overall, they are solid picks for most situations and good cornerstones for a well-optimized team.

C-Tier

Mobile Legends Tier List Tier C

These are decent heroes with a few glaring flaws that could be detrimental to their team if not addressed properly.

D-Tier

Mobile Legends Tier List Tier D

These heroes have almost completely fallen off the current meta because of their lack of utility in matches.

Skilled players can pick these heroes up to catch the opponent unaware, but this is a very risky move.

F-Tier

Mobile Legends Tier List Tier F

These heroes have completely fallen off the meta for good reason. They don’t have nearly the same amount of utility and carry potential as other heroes.

Sometimes, choosing these heroes gives the enemy team a natural advantage.
