Quake Champions Tier List: Best Characters Ranked

There are more characters other than Doom Slayer, you know.

A bold move in the video game industry is to release a free-to-play competitive first-person shooter in a world that is already saturated with extremely competitive games that seek to be the number one. And, while Quake is a genre-defining title with a list of games that go from Quake, Doom, Wolfenstein, and many others that were inspired by them, today it is not the most famous franchise of all. And while everything I’ve said is true, one can only wish that these games will be able to receive retroactively the love that they deserve. Without further ado, here is the Quake Champions tier list.

Quake Champions Tier List

While the game was met with very good reactions and was well-received critically, unfortunately it wasn’t able to gather enough attention to rise up from the free-to-play game competition. That is the reason we don’t have a lot of information available online, since, well, nobody is playing this game. However, during the life span of Quake Champions, the community was able to formulate a tier list based on their own experiences in-game. This may not be the most accurate tier list of the bunch, but hey, Vox Populi, Vox Dei. Here is the Quake Champions tier list.

Doom Slayer
Strogg & Peeker
B.J. Blazkowicz
C-TierDeath Knight

So, in order to succeed in Quake Champions, and if you are able to find a server available, then just go ahead and pick the S-Tier champions in the game. Or just pick the Doom Slayer and you will be ready to go. However, picking almost all the characters in the game will give you a pretty decent chance to fight your way to victory. But yet again, you will probably win by default because, well, you know why.
