Smite Tier List: Best To Worst Gods [Sept. 2022]

After playing Smite for three years, it is surprising to see how fast it is gaining popularity. For every Smite player, there is always that moment where they wonder which god is the best to play with. That is why we decided to make the best Smite Tier List for January-February, 2022. This way you can easily decide which gods to play with and which ones to ignore. In this Smite article, we have also included Smite arena, duel, and joust tier list.

Smite is a free-to-play, MOBA-type game that was released around the start of 2014. Until now, we have seen many multiple online battleground games or in short MOBA games getting famous. For Examples, DOTA, Player Unkown Battleground (PUBG), Mobile Legends, Fortnite, and League of Legends.

Smite even though it is a great game, it never reached the same level of popularity as the games above. However, we can see it changing now as many people are getting to know about Smite.

Before we start with the list, there is something important to note. This Smite arena tier list is based completely on our own in-game experiences and surveys held amongst our team of Smite players. Please understand that there might be some rankings that may not be similar to your ranking of that character. Therefore, the rankings in this list are subjective to different opinions and points of view.

Nevertheless, we have made this guide as informative as possible to help you choose your main god. To rank a character in this guide, we prioritize the skills and potential of a character over our love for them. This tier list is not subject to any type of criticism as we have already explained the procedure.

S Tier

Best Smite gods
Best gods in Smite

In the Smite Tier List, S Tier gods are the ones who outperform others in their specific positions. These are the best Smite gods who quickly become key members of the party. The S Tier gods are the ones that can give you a guaranteed win if you have the right team. These are typically the MVPs of the match.

These characters have great kits that make them really OP. Even though these gods will play decently in any role, it is recommended that you play according to its mechanism. For example, the gods that are made to be junglers will obviously be better junglers than supporters.

The junglers will stay in the jungle until late game, while the support units are usually in the middle lane with the warriors and mages. It is very important to understand the battle roles when playing a MOBA.

While ranking gods, it is also important to understand the current position of the Meta. When the Meta is rising amongst solo laners, the gods that have solo laners as their counter will suffer a lot. Because of the Meta, some characters that usually rank low become really over-powered. It is just how the system is.

They excel in their respective jobs and push the boundaries in terms of abilities and skills. Usually, these are also the characters who take the top spot on their respective tier lists. For example, Danzaburuou is the best hunter on Smite Hunter Tier List.

Guan Yu

NameGuan Yu
TitleSaint of War
ClassWarrior
TypeMelee, Physical

Guan Yu is the best solo laner and the perfect crowd controller. He ranks on top of the Smite Solo Tier List. His healing ability and durability to last against ganks are much more effective in a smooth victory. He can be very beneficial in ganks. Guan Yu can easily avoid ambushes by countering them with his ult.

Moreover, he can safely retreat in a tough situation by his ult. His spinning attack can also prove to be very deadly if combined with correct build items. His durability and his aggressiveness deal heavy damage to the enemy. Guan Yu can also use crowd control effects. Playing with him effectively can result in a flawless victory. Furthermore, Guan Yu is one of the best Smite gods in 2021 and the best Arena gods in Smite as well.

Tsukuyomi

NameGuan Yu
TitleGod of the Moon
ClassAssassin
TypeMelee, Physical

Tsukuyomi the S-Ranked assassin his ability to replenish his mana and decrease the cooldown of his skills while battling makes him a very annoying assassin to fight against in a 1 v 1 situation. He is the best ace and he can do well in mid-lanes. His appearance can put the enemy in discomfort and terror and he also has slow effects alongside dealing burst damage.

Tsukuyomi’s abilities can absolutely crush the enemy mages. However, no matter how strong Tsukuyomi can be, he does need backup from his allies when facing a crowd controller. Tsukuyomi does not rank well in Smite support tier list.

Danzaburuou

NameDanzaburuou
TitleThe Legendary Tanuki
ClassHunter
TypeRanged, Physical

Danzaburuou possesses tremendous strength. His damage is good from the beginning until the end of the game. Furthermore, his ult helps him to do some sneaky ganks. With a stun, he can do 600+ damage. He can also easily CC in the jungle since his 1 and 2 are simpler to hit. When you don’t know how to play against him, he stomps you. He is, nevertheless, manageable.

People aren’t paying enough attention in the lane, and Danza will penalize you if you don’t dodge his kit. Danza has one of the best Smite skins and he can win at any position he plays. In games, Danza typically has the highest gold damage and kills. Danzaburuou is the best Hunter on most Smite Hunter Tier List.

Set

NameSet
TitleThe Usurper
ClassAssassin
TypeMelee, Physical

The usurper, Set, is one of the most ruthless and best assassin gods in Smite. His damaging abilities are incomparable to any other. Set is also one of the heroes that must be banned or chosen. His spawns turn a one-on-one conflict into a three-on-one struggle.

Moreover, Set’s ultimate buff and deadly talents work in his favor, transforming him into a truly lethal assassin. Set, if thoroughly mastered, may be extremely useful to the match. He has the ability to summon spawns and teleport to them while doing immense damage. This renders the opponent ineffective.

Therefore, Set is deserving of being placed in the S Tier of our Smite Gods Tier List. The set is simple to use and has a deadly appearance. He is extremely difficult to master, but once you do, he transforms every game into an easy game.

King Arthur

NameKing Arthur
TitleWeilder of Excalibur
ClassWarrior
TypeMelee, Physical

There are many people who are dissatisfied with King Arthur but there is no doubt that Arthur is one of the strongest gods to exist. He can easily take on 4 players at a time with literally no effort. Maybe that is the reason people hate him so much. Nevertheless, my team and I, have never been disappointed by Arthur.

All you need are good skills and Arthur can help you dominate the battleground. Furthermore, Arthur is an exception above the center of the pack with a number of strong countermeasures. King Arthur is really one of the best Smite gods to exist in the game right now.

Moreover, Arthur specializes in locking down enemies and dealing rapid bursts of damage, has good mobility, and can confirm kills rather effectively with his tier 2 ult. Because he has to hit abilities in order to be a tank, he struggles against gods that can poke extremely effectively.

Overall, Arthur is competent, but he has many unfavorable matchups, which makes people dislike him. King Arthur is also one of the best on Smite Solo Tier List.

Sun Wukong

NameSun Wukong
TitleThe Monkey King
ClassWarrior
TypeMelee, Physical

The Monkey King, Sun Wukong, lives up to his reputation as an S-ranked God. Mainly played as a jungle, Sun Wukong can deal Massive damage and escape on his cloud with no trouble and he can also gank a lane easily using his transforming ability and knock-up ability. This makes him a really hard catch as he can also escape from deadly situations with ease.

If you use the right build for sun and learn the accurate combos, Sun Wukon can prove to be really fatal in the game. Sun is the best warrior in Smite.

A Tier

Smite Tier List
Second best gods in Smite

These characters are great and have the potential to be S Tier in the right circumstances. Everything is very decent about them. Their skins, kits, abilities, and skills all are good. However, they have many counters and can be easily defeated by certain gods.

Moreover, even though the skills of A Tier characters are great, it is difficult to play with them unlike Tsukuyomi from the S Tier. Nevertheless, they are still amazing characters to play with. If you can invest some time and effort in them, they can defeat one of the best S Tier gods to exist.

They are gods, doing admirably in their respective positions. They do not, however, raise the bar in terms of skills and abilities. Despite this, they deliver excellent performances in their various contributions.

In particular team combinations, A Tier gods shine brightly. They might need some extra care, but once you give them what they need, they will become unbeatable. They play amazingly in Joust, Arena, and Duel, therefore, getting a good spot on Smite Duel Tier List.

Yu Huang 

Name Yu Huang 
Title The Jade Emperor 
Class Mage 
Type Ranged, Magical 
Origin Chinese 

 Yu Huang is considered one of the best Mages in our tier list that can counter any powerful Assassin in Smite. He has the ability to conjure four Cinders of Phoenix. The Cinders will be spread out in an X shape covering a large area. Additionally, these Cinders rush towards the center and deal damage as they move. When these Cinders will meet In the center, they will explode and set everything around them in flames.

These flames will persist for about 3 seconds, consequently burning all the enemies inside. Similarly, if Yu Huang is Attuned when these cinders go off, any enemy in the area of effect will have their Magical Protection lowered. 

Lancelot 

Name Lancelot 
Title First Knight of The Round Table 
Class Assassin 
Type Physical, Melee 
Pantheon  Arthurian 

Arguably one of the strongest Assassins in our tier list for Smite that was released in June 2022 is Lancelot.  Even though he is a new character, he has managed to secure an A rank in our Smite 2022 tier list. Many players prefer using Lancelot as their main melee fighter due to his amazing abilities. He can receive one stack in a God Assist or Kill. Additionally, he also receives a stack for every five Minions he kills.

If Lancelot is mounted, every stack will provide an increased Mobility Speed. However, if he is unmounted, every stack will provide a reduction in the damage of his Basic Attack. Furthermore, he can buff his allies. His ultimate ability is called the Grand Joust. Using the ability he can rear up his horse and create a large Jousting list. Doing so will cripple all the enemies in the area. Then he will charge ahead and deal damage to all the enemies and refresh his Health Shield. 

Charybdis

NameCharybdis
TitleThe Ceaseless Whirlpool
ClassHunter
TypeRanged, Physical

The Ceaseless Whirlpool, Charybdis, is an A Tier god in the Smite Hunter Tier List. Se is a simple-to-use deity with high damage. However, the easier it is to utilize, the easier it is to fight Charybdis, who once shone in her day. You must use extreme caution while interacting with her. Using her ultimate ability, she has shown to be extremely dangerous for enemies playing in a group.

The only thing that comes to mind for the opponent is to flee as far as possible from Charybdis in order to dodge her Ult. If Charybdis misses her ult, she becomes susceptible to opponent assaults and is quickly taken down.

Nonetheless, Charybdis is a powerful God to play with, but he is also a simple God to master if used correctly. She can also win with a perfect score. Definitely, the best hunter in Smite.

Ullr

NameUllr
TitleThe Glorious One
ClassHunter
TypeRanged, Physical

Ullr is hard to play, and he shines late game, that is why you may think he sucks. He is well played and in the hands of a player who mastered him, is a true killing machine. He has damages, he has escaping skills, he has strong steroid ability, and he has a Stun ability.

He’s in my opinion in the top tier of the hunter class, but sadly very hard to play efficiently. Nevertheless, he is a good player on this Smite Arena Tier List. You can play exceptionally well with him by giving him the best smite builds. He was one of the best Smite gods in 2016.

Many players focus on the ability to poke throughout the game and overlook the fact that some characters, such as Ullr, have auto-attacking abilities. Hunter is, after all, an auto-attacker class. Some hunters are more focused on their abilities than others, and I believe Ullr is one of them. However, if you play him that way, he burns through mana rapidly, and you’ll only be accomplishing a fraction of what you might be doing if you put in a decent number of AAs as well.

Ullr isn’t a god with a lot of abilities. Moreover, his mana pool is limited, and his ability doesn’t do a lot of damage per mana when utilized well. Ullr’s skills are designed to execute a fleeing low-life victim, which is a great example of his incredible range.

Ymir

NameYmir
TitleFather of the Frost Giants
ClassGuardian
TypeMelee, Magical

A Guardian and melee damage capable A-ranked God, Father of the Frost Giants, Ymir his ability to crowd control makes him really strong on the battlefield but as compared to other Guardian role Gods Ymir lack behind in durability. He does have the ability to mass crowd controls the enemy but he can be weak when it comes to protecting himself.

Ymir’s ultimate can prove to be a game-changer as it can deal massive damage while slowing the enemy and even if he dies while channeling his ult, it can explode by itself giving your allies the time to either plan out a devastating attack or a skillful retreat. Ymir ranks fairly well on the Smite Support Tier List.

Yu Huang 

Name Yu Huang 
Title The Jade Emperor 
Class Mage 
Type Ranged, Magical 
Origin Chinese 

Yu Huang is considered one of the best Mages in our tier list that can counter any powerful Assassin in Smite. He has the ability to conjure four Cinders of Phoenix. The Cinders will be spread out in an X shape covering a large area. Additionally, these Cinders rush towards the center and deal damage as they move.

When these Cinders will meet In the center, they will explode and set everything around them in flames. These flames will persist for about 3 seconds, consequently burning all the enemies inside. Similarly, if Yu Huang is Attuned when these cinders go off, any enemy in the area of effect will have their Magical Protection lowered. 

Lancelot 

Name Lancelot 
Title First Knight of The Round Table 
Class Assassin 
Type Physical, Melee 
Pantheon  Arthurian 

Arguably one of the strongest Assassins in our tier list for Smite that was released in June 2022 is Lancelot.  Even though he is a new character, he has managed to secure an A rank in our Smite 2022 tier list.

Many players prefer using Lancelot as their main melee fighter due to his amazing abilities. He can receive one stack in a God Assist or Kill. Additionally, he also receives a stack for every five Minions he kills. If Lancelot is mounted, every stack will provide an increased Mobility Speed.

However, if he is unmounted, every stack will provide a reduction in the damage of his Basic Attack. Furthermore, he can buff his allies. His ultimate ability is called the Grand Joust.

Using the ability he can rear up his horse and create a large Jousting list. Doing so will cripple all the enemies in the area. Then he will charge ahead and deal damage to all the enemies and refresh his Health Shield. 

Fafnir

NameFafnir
TitleThe Lord of Glittering Gold
ClassGuardian
TypeMelee, Magical

Lord of Glittering Gold, Fafnir. He can switch between becoming a Dragon and a Dwarf. In the A Tier of the Smite Arena Tier List, he is one of the finest guardians. However, it’s a shame that this masterpiece didn’t make it into the S Tier. His ability to both damage and protect against opponent strikes is astonishing. He has the ability to enhance himself and his friends.

Giving the CC benefits allows him to gank and kill the foes. Fafnir is far more terrifying in battle than one may think. All of his single-targeted talents become AOE when he turns into a Dragon. This allows him to do harm to a large number of opponents while also buffing a large number of teammates. In the late game, Fafnir may be a game-changer.

B Tier

 B Tier Gods
Smite B Tier Gods

These are the average gods in Smite. They are fun to play with. However, as a professional, you may not want to use it for important matches. For beginners, these are very decent gods to pick and play as they are easy to control and understand. They can compete with those in the A Tier if your skills are good, but defeating the S Tier may get a bit too complicated.

These characters are definitely better than the C Tiers and D Tiers strength-wise and popularity-wise. Not many professional players would like to use these characters. They are not the best characters in Smite but they are not the worst either; they just lie perfectly in the middle of the bar.

The B Tier gods are good but not worth spending too much time on. Moreover, personally, I really love the animations and skins of these characters. They operate admirably when used correctly, but their influence is generally less than that of those in higher categories. In the current meta, B Tier gods do not play well. They have a weaker impact in the game than those in higher tiers.

However, some of them do exceptionally well in Duel and Joust, getting good ranks in Smite Joust Tier List especially. These are OP characters we believe should be in B Tier due to their strength. However, feel free to share your thoughts and opinions. We would love to see how you rank these characters.

Mulan

NameMulan
TitleThe Ascended Warrior
ClassWarrior
TypeMelee, Physical

The Ascended Warrior, Mulan. Mulan’s assaults are brutal and cold, despite how charming and pretty she appears. She alternates between several weapons on a regular basis. Mulan can be extremely dangerous on the battlefield if the player masters each of her weapons and fully integrates them into the character.

Mulan, on the other hand, is a tough God to manage due to his many varieties. Nonetheless, in a 1 v 1 situation, her combinations are quite efficient, making her a good solo laner. You must practice and perfect Mulan’s talents if you want to play and win successfully. Mulan actually ranks well on Smite Jungle Tier List.

Achilles

NameAchilles
TitleHero of the Trojan War
ClassWarrior
TypeMelee, Physical

Achilles, the Hero of the Trojan War. If you don’t pay attention when playing against Achilles, he can tear your god into pieces. Achilles, while being a B-ranked hero, can hold his own ground against heroes of higher levels due to his durability and ability to deflect attacks. If you have no other option to win a game, this is a must-pick god from the B Tier. Achilles has good healing and CC abilities. Therefore, he ranks fairly well on the Smite Solo Tier List as well.

Zeus

NameZeus
TitleGod of the Sky
ClassMage
TypeRanged, Magical

With his long-range and AOE effects, Zeus, the God of the Sky, is one of the most troublesome Mid-laners. From a safe distance, he may continue to tease his adversaries. He may also evade opposing ganks while harming enemy heroes thanks to his mobility speed buff.

Zeus is a must-play character for everyone who likes long-ranged heroes and Zeus may be a great addition to the squad if you pair him up with a solid defense. This is due to Zeus’s ability to hurt the adversary from afar and even secure a kill or two while remaining safe and taking no damage. It is simple to transform a losing game into a winning one if you utilize Zeus wisely.

Ah Muzen Cab

NameAh Muzen Cab
TitleGod of Bees
ClassHunter
TypeRanged, Physical

Ah Muzen Cab, God of Bees, is a solid choice that is also extremely good. However, gamers frequently select other gods instead of Ah Muzen Cab. Mulan doesn’t have any dash abilities and uses a lot of mana. Zeus’s damaging ability and ability to expose the enemy are both quite useful and may help you secure kills.

With his ult, he may catch the enemy off guard and destroy him. Muzen Cab is a reasonably powerful God, although there are better options. In the end, it’s up to the player to figure out how to use Ah Muzen Cab’s combinations and items to thoroughly outplay the opponent and win the game. Ah Muzen Cab is a decent game-changing god in Smite Joust Tier List.

Chronos

NameChronos
TitleKeeper of Time
ClassMage
TypeRanged, Magical

Chronos, the Keeper of Time, as his name and title suggest, is a God who can control time in his favor. He can reset all of his skills, granting himself a variety of additional buffs. Therefore, with those buffs, Chronos becomes a very dangerous Mid-laner.

Mainly because he can deal a lot of damage with his ultimate and skill combinations. It’s the same as mastering time in-game if you can master Chronos. In comparison to other gods, it is also simple to use. For starters, Chronos may be quite difficult to counter enemies using it. Chronos takes a good spot in the Smite Support Tier List.

Discordia

NameDiscordia
TitleGoddess of Strife
ClassMage
TypeRanged, Magical

She’s an excellent magician. Damage and cc are both excellent. Her only flaw is that she’s far too easy for the amount of damage she causes. If she is top damage, her passive is beneficial not only for herself but also for her hunter or other hyper-carry gods like Freya. With Strife and Golden Apple of Discord, she possesses tremendous control and disruption, and she can control regions with Unruly Magic and her ultimate.

She is at her best in the late game since she will most likely have near or exact maximum cooldown reduction, allowing her to cast her 1 and 2 frequently while inflicting high damage. Her primary flaw is her early game, where she won’t be able to deal enough damage. Discordia is one of the best mid-laners and the best mage in Smite.

C Tier

Smite Tier List
C Tier

The C Tier characters are below average gods in Smite after Atlas patch 2022. There was a time when these characters used to be at the top.

However, these gods, now, are pretty useless in battle. They die easily and become fed by enemies. They can still play well if your team is strong enough to carry and protect you. However, these are the worst as ADCs and will never be able to carry a team. These gods have a win ratio of below 50%.

They lose more often than they win. It is extremely difficult to maintain a good k/da with C Tier gods. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not invest much of your efforts or time playing these gods. The gods in the C tier of our Smite Gods Tier List play poorly in the current meta. Therefore, they can not be compared to the best Smite gods in the S Tier.

Cernunnos

NameCernunnos
TitleThe Horned God
ClassHunter
TypeRanged, Physical

Cernunnos can be a good player if you learn the right tricks. The key to mastering Cernunnos is to learn how to use his 1. For 5 seconds, his autumn posture reduces physical protection by 25. So you’ll start with that and then switch to summer for maximum damage output.

While he is hurling his basic attacks, all foes in the melee range take additional damage. Heavy Glaive’s increased damage has no effect on the effects of items or abilities. It is also unable to use Critical Strike. Cernunnos sends a bramble in a line forward that roots a single opponent hit. His bramble patch, on the other hand, does very little damage. Moreover, his ult has a long delay.

Terra

NameSun Wukong
TitleThe Earth Mother
ClassGuardian
TypeMelee, Magical

Terra is an incredibly powerful goddess. Her healing is also quite amazing. She has good damage, nice CC, and a very gratifying kit. Terra’s kit is stacked with combos and is combo-oriented. As a result, her level 1 game is horrible.

Her 2 seems to be the only ability that could really hold itself, and it’s merely average at best. She begins to improve in levels 2 and 3, but those early levels will be difficult. Also, not being able to play god at early levels will have a big impact. Terra’s passive can twice proc hostility, which is a significant benefit. However, Terra still does not rank well on Smite Duel List at all because of the current meta 2022.

Hercules

NameHercules
TitleChampion of Rome
ClassWarrior
TypeMelee, Physical

Hercules never falls off the cliff. He also has Insane Healing, which is conditional yet effective. Hercules possesses two hard CC abilities as well as a lot of power in his kit. He has limited mobility, though, and can be defeated by any anti-healing god.

Moreover, he is one of Smite’s most underappreciated gods. Because of his tremendous quantity of healing, he has the potential to be the most resilient god in Smite gods tier list. His early games, middle games, and late games are all excellent. If a teammate can carry him, he can become invincible. Furthermore, Hercules has very few counters.

Baby Yaga

NameBaba Yaga
TitleThe Witch of the Woods
ClassMage
TypeRanged, Magical

The only thing good about baby Yaga is the amount of damage she can inflict. Yeah, that’s it. She is a powerful image, but her usefulness is patchy. Also, she does nothing but damage even on ult. The effects on the 1 appear to be far too random to be useful, with the quiet and slow well outclassing the protective bonus.

Her 1 is a powerful weapon, but it feels horrible if you don’t obtain the correct effect when you need it. The sole powerful impression is the stillness; the slow is enough but, in my opinion, still insufficient. The mobility and protection buffs are insufficient to encourage players to stay in the confined region.

Medusa

NameMedusa
TitleThe Gorgon
ClassHunter
TypeRanged, Physical

For boxing, Medusa’s is the finest. It tightens the gap between her and the opponent, lowering their healing and giving her more area to fire. It does, however, have a number of drawbacks. It’s a bit of a letdown as an escape. Medusa can not go over bodies while dashing.

She will be unable to flee if her body is obstructed. And her motion is a little sluggish; you can always see them approaching and taking a step back, so part of her damage and utility is gone. Her ultimate also has a significant amount of damage. The stun on it isn’t anything spectacular, and it’s easy to counter her after a bit of playing against her. Medusa ranks fairly low on Smite Joust Tier List.

Atlas

NameAtlas
TitleThe Titan of the Cosmos
ClassGuardian
TypeMelee, Magical

Atlas’s early and mid-games are poor, but he’s great in team fights. His main problem is his PVE damage ratio. His first wave is intended to be his main wave. However, it deals so little damage early on that you’re better off just auto-attacking. His ult is likewise a disaster.

It has minimal damage, which would be acceptable if it had a lot of usefulness, but it doesn’t. The shielding and power shred are great, but not enough to make it feel like a powerful ability. It would be great if it had more usefulness or causes more damage.

D Tier

Worst Gods in Smite
Worst Gods in Smite

The worst gods of all in the current meta. They are good for nothing and will often be the ones responsible for the “First Blood” announcement. They have the lowest k/da in a match. No matter how professional other team members are, the D Tier gods will take the entire time down unless there is an exceptional player in the team who can perform an actual miracle and carry the game on his two shoulders.

Tier D heroes are weaker and require more work to play well, although they do have certain unique abilities, such as the ability to play solo or in the jungle.

They are extremely weak to the point players wish that these gods did not exist or got a buff. There is no use in learning how to play these characters. The gods of the D Tier are utterly uncompetitive.

Despite the fact that you are free to use anybody you choose, the better characters will still outperform the lower-tier characters. These characters rank low in their respective role’s list too e.g  Smite Jungle tier list.

Ah Puch

NameAh Puch
TitleHorrific God of Decay
ClassMage
TypeRanged, Magical

Puch is a horrible God for conquest, yet he’s good or at least not awful in every mode that starts at level 3. Puch’s difficulty in conquest and siege is his lack of mobility, which makes him easy to gank. On conquest, he also sucks for 1 lv, which is a major thing, as his clear as actual starts at 3ml.

Puch’s joust stats are ridiculously high, with infinite poke and large anti-heal, making him a powerful counter to the general joust meta. His overall conquest victory percentage is 50.03 percent, which is rather impressive for a god on the Smite Jungle Tier List’s D Tier.

Amaterasu

NameAmaterasu
TitleThe Shining Light
ClassWarrior
TypeMelee, Physical

Amaterasu does nothing except sit in the tower till the end of the game. She’s also tedious to play since she’s so predictable. She will be worthless if she does not utilize her ult. Amaterasu is great at the late game, and she is even better if you stay.

And in terms of support, she’d probably do very well if the squad had two magic damage dealers. She is competent and a solid choice. Nevertheless, in a competitive environment, there are typically better possibilities and you can find more powerful gods on this aspect in the smite god tier list.

Loki

NameLoki
TitleThe Trickster God

Loki does not do well in teams and against teams. It is also easy to halt his Split Pushing ability against a well-organized team. Moreover, he is a bit of a waste of time in the early game. He can not operate as a jungler since he can not clear and ambush simultaneously. If he maxes out his three, he will have a strong assault potential, but he will not be able to clear camps.

If he maxes the two, his clearing will be good, but he will not be able to ambush. He is only effective against undisciplined teams with minimal experience. That is why he easily destroys casuals and lower levels. In the early game, he’s essentially a lane farmer.

Anubis

NameAnubis
TitleGod of the Dead
ClassMage
TypeRanged, Magical

At higher levels of play, Anubis is completely useless in this Smite gods tier list. He’s easy to kill, he can’t flee, and he’s easy to lock down because he’s rooted with half his gear. Furthermore, someone can construct Magi’s and Beads and almost never be stunned by Anubis.

He also does not have any mobility at all. Because people aren’t genuinely working together to destroy Anubis on lower stages, he tends to stomp. However, your view will change if you reach level 30 and boost your MMR/elo. In conclusion, he is good if he is not being successfully punished or dived on.

Joust Tier List

Here is a small tier list to know which Smite god is best in Joust and which one is the worst.

Battle Roles in Smite

There are 5 types of roles in Smite or any other battleground game: The ADC, the support, the mid-laner, the solo-laner, and the jungler. Find your “main” role that you can excel at, but be able to play other roles as you will not always get the role you want.

Battle roles exist because we play in a team. Moreover, it is physically impossible for a single person to fight, support, tank, and farm altogether. Therefore, we need to divide battle roles among our teammates.

The best warrior will solo, the best guardian will tank, the best hunter will carry, and the best mage in smite will provide support. In Smite Joust tier list and other tier lists, the gods are ranked according to how well they play in their respective battle roles.

Hunter or ADC

The Hunters have a complete damage build and are in charge of dealing the majority of the damage to your enemies. These are the long-range glass cannons you’ll be using. In the duo lane, they work effectively alongside tanks. They are generally the ones that carry the game.

In the early game, you should be in the left lane, often known as the duo lane, with your support. Furthermore, this position is for you if you enjoy being the one in charge of achieving goals and leading your team.

The most important aim is to start farming early, get your construct online, and start “carrying” your squad. This will mostly be accomplished through objectives, but you should also be second only to your mid-laner in terms of damage. In Smite Hunter Tier List [2022], the best Smite hunter god is Hou Yi. On the other hand, the worst Smite hunter is Izanami.

Guardian or Tank

Tanks typically have high HP, CC, and/or sustain. They are usually slow and clumsy, but they can absorb a lot of punishment. Moreover, they are frequently encountered in the duo lane. The Guardian begins with a Carry in the left lane and rotates for about 5 minutes throughout the map. The tank, arguably the most crucial function, is responsible for everything.

In every team fight, you should be present, absorbing damage for your weaker teammates and using crowd control to set them up for kills. Moreover, this is for you if you enjoy being the “point guard” and are willing to die to protect others. Your only task in the early duo lane is to make sure your Carry doesn’t die and to assist them in farming. The best Guardian in Smite right now is Cthulhu because he can do all of the above jobs perfectly.

Mage or Support

The Support usually has to heal, CC, and/or buff abilities to aid your allies. The best place for a mage is in the middle lane by yourself early, but your jungler and tank will rotate later in the game. This is where most of the team fights will happen, with you being the primary damage dealer on the team.

Abilities cover large areas and deal massive damage, but you will be the most vulnerable player on your team. The best support god in Smite currently is Poseidon according to our best Smite support tier list. If you don’t mind being very easy to kill, want to be the primary damage dealer, can show patience, and not be overly aggressive, this is for you.

Warriors or Solo-Laners

They should play in their own lane till the very end of the game. They have a strong balance of defense and offense, and they usually perform well in 1v1 situations. This is for you if you prefer to rely on yourself rather than a group. You should be at a higher level than everyone else in most games, and if you start rotating, you can have a significant impact on players who are levels behind you.

Furthermore, this lane also features the most diverse god pool, with the majority of gods being warriors, although each class has many gods that can battle in the solo lane. The solo god that is on the top of the Smite Solo Tier List for the current meta is Cerberus.

Jungle or Assasin

Junglers receive experience by killing jungle monsters and assisting in the clearing of lane waves. You’re also the Ganker most of the time. You don’t have a set lane; the jungle is your territory. Moreover, you’ll primarily be attending camps to assist your squad and ganking lanes. Jungle has the most kills on average, excels at finishing kills, and has great mobility.

This is the game for you if you enjoy quietly murdering foes, not being in the middle of the action while setting up camps across the map, and covering a lot of lands swiftly. Junglers are usually the most ineffective in team fights, so if you can’t deal with that, this is not the role for you. In Smite jungle tier list [2022], the best Jungle you can choose to play with is Ne Zha.

Best Gods In Smite For Arena 2022 

One of the best game modes that a player can experience in Smite is the Arena Mode. It is a 5 versus 5 modes that can be great for players who are just starting out in the game. If you’re looking for some of the best gods in Arena Mode of Smite then consider the gods below. 

Geb 

Since Arena Mode is composed of a spread-out battle space the attacks can come from any direction. The kit possessed by Geb makes him the perfect God for Arena Mode in smite. Thanks to his Shield Protection he can dodge any enemy attacks coming his way. Furthermore, his Wave Ability can also deal significant damage to enemies while protecting his allies. 

Ares 

The God of War can do amazingly in Arena Mode as he focuses on teamwork a lot. So while he deals damage to his enemies he also makes sure to protect his allies from incoming damage. The ultimate move of Ares called No Escape will allow him to pull any of the gods inside his AOE.

They will get chained to his shield and as soon as they enter his Area Of Effect they will get significant damage. Furthermore, he uses the arena mode to his advantage by using his ability called the Shackles. The ability will help him dodge the attacks by using dashes. 

Vulcan 

Undoubtedly the best god in Arena Game mode of smite is Vulcan. Since the arena is all about utilizing the large space, the amazing mobility of Vulcan can help him conquer this game mode. He uses his Turret to zone out any enemies nearby and deal damage to them using his Magma Bombs.  

 Also, the Earthshaker ability of Vulcan will help him deal damage to the ranged enemies using a sharp Rocket Attack. A good strategy is to time it with the other attacks done by different gods in your team so that the enemy will never know where the attack came from. 

Thor 

The God of Thunder is an overall good character for every game mode that Smite has to offer. But his skills shine exceptionally well when it comes to the Arena Game mode. His ultimate ability you can send him up in the air and then he can choose a target spot to land and deal damage to any enemy on that spot.

Thanks to his great mobility, he can freely perform his flashy attacks without compromising the damage they do. Moreover, if you use his stunning abilities with proper strategy you will be able to finish the Arena match in no time. 

Conclusion

The rankings of all the gods in Smite Arena tier list and all of the other tier lists are based completely on our personal experience and time spent researching the characters, game, and their worthiness in the PvP matches. Despite the fact that I do not agree with all of the tier placements, I believe it is a fair and impartial evaluation that gives a good overview of the current top gods in the meta.

As I previously stated, the character ranks in this Smite tier list are based on my own experience. Therefore, the ranking in this list can be different than yours. Nevertheless, please leave a comment indicating which Smite god you believe should be placed in a higher rank or a lower rank. Finally, best of luck to you, adventurer!
