Paladins Tier List

Paladins is an online free-to-play shooting game that Evil Mojo develops. Evil Mojo is an internal studio of Hi-Rez. The game was released on the eighth of May in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows. Paladins were released on Nintendo Switch on the twelfth of June in 2018. It is a group-based game in which every team has five players who compete to achieve combat goals. The maps in the game are sci-fi fantasy, and the characters are called champions. A player can only choose his champion before the battle begins and cannot change it during the war. The paladins tier list ranks all the champions in the game in five different tiers.

This tier list ranks all the characters in the game based on their unique skills, from best to worst. It makes it easy for the players to choose the kind of character which suits them and can help them win. This tier list is based on our experiences, a lot of research, and time spent playing the game. Some of the audience might not agree with how we have ranked the characters, but we all know ranking can be very subjective and vary from person to person.
