MultiVersus Beta Character Ranking

MultiVersus

The game from Warner Bros. Interactive has been making waves for a while. The MultiVersus open beta launched on July 26, and some people had restricted access before then. The fighting crossover game was generally well received and is considered a multi-console version of Super Smash Bros.

MultiVersus is loved for its hugely diverse cast of characters, such as Batman, Sammy, and LeBron James. Many more characters are planned throughout Season 1, but the price of each character may vary. Many characters already seem to be very powerful while others may be weak in playability.

S-Tier Characters

MultiVersus

bugs bunny – Bugs Bunny acts like a mage in Multiversus, which means he’s great for ranged combat. A skilled player can keep opponents at bay and use their teleport ability to escape sticky situations. A nerf was planned for Bugs, given the difficulty of countering this kind of character.

Batman – The hero makes a place for himself in the S-Tier, thanks to his mobility, his combo potential and his melee abilities. Some players are unhappy with this character, who has been dubbed “Bat Spam”, but that’s precisely what makes the character so easy to play. Batman’s mix of combos, his grappling hook and his Batarang can really be hard to dodge.

He also has a fast recovery time, although many players tend to agree that the character is more effective in 1v1 situations.

Arya Stark – Arya Stark, much like in Game of Thrones, is an assassin, who is most effective by being sneaky and against big opponents like the iron giant. Arya is able to strike quickly and has a speed advantage when she dodges. But she is much more fragile than most of the other characters.

Arya wields a diverse kit, though she was called Harley Queen without the projectiles. He is a decision oriented character.

A-Tier Characters

MultiVersus

harley queen – Harley Queen takes on the role of an assassin, which is an optimal character for those who like to control their speed and make calculated attacks, while remaining on the offensive. Some players don’t think she’s easy to learn at first, but mastering her is a good thing, because her specials are very powerful, even though her specials aren’t diverse.

Harley Queen’s aerial attacks are the most effective, as she is able to rack up an incredible amount of damage while doing endless combos.

sammy – MultiVersus has canonized the “Ultra Instinct” Sammy, much to the delight of fans. He is an ideal character for beginners, and using the special button will generate “Zoinks” which allow him to charge his rage. Once charged, allies around him will gain a rage buff and Sammy will recover health.

Sammy was comped to Captain Falcon or Goku due to his reach and the power of his punches. One of his best abilities is his KO potential: He can inflict a lot of damage while preventing his opponents from recovering.

Vera – Vera, a Scooby-Doo character wearing glasses, also entered wrestling as a supporting character. Although her attacks are less direct and her main goal is to keep her allies alive, she can be deadly in the hands of a pro. She struggles in close combat, but has some satisfying combos.

She can temporarily reduce teammates’ cooldowns, which can turn a fight around quickly. She also has the ability to damage opponents on the other side of the field, although the downside is that players must keep their distance from Bruisers and Tanks.

Tom and Jerry – The cat and mouse duo fall into the category of Mages, and they can be difficult to master. However, played correctly, Tom and Jerry can be optimal as they specialize in long-range attacks and wield unconventional abilities that are difficult to predict. Once separated, Jerry is a smaller target but can be shot like a projectile.

Projectile ability is strong, after players overcome the learning curve. Being separated means Tom and Jerry can divide and dominate the field, but many of their special attacks are situational, so they can’t be used often.

B-Tier Characters

MultiVersus

LeBron James – The first and real-life person to join MultiVersus. LeBron James is a Bruiser who could be A-Tier if his skill-ceiling was a bit weaker. His combos aren’t obvious and can take a while to master, but the character excels in long-range and close-range combat due to his ability to throw basketballs at enemies.

These balloons work well for his defensive abilities, because they are effective in protecting him against a lot of damage. However, the character’s biggest flaw is that he can only catch one balloon at a time, and he cannot call another until his neutral spin recharges. He is a high risk, high reward character.

taz – While not particularly popular in the MultiVersus Roster, Taz has been making waves with his super-powered and unpredictable tornado. During the alpha and beta, Taz frustrated many to the point that his tornado was changed to last less, no longer have multi-hits, and do less damage.

Still, Taz is a solid pick, since the Bruiser is able to deal a lot of damage up close. His “Tasty” debuff is one of his strongest abilities as it is able to knock the enemy, and over time, turn them into roast chicken. If the chicken takes damage, they drop food that can heal Taz and his teammates.

Finn the Human – Finn can be quite strong in the hands of a skilled player, but the Adventure Time character has limits because he can leave himself vulnerable and helpless. He is similar to Taz in playstyle, although his projectile is slower than Tornado. Finn players typically use the Backpack Attack ability conservatively while saving their coins to make their final hit stronger. These buying abilities can greatly increase his stats.

Jack the dog – Jake, who is also an Adventure Time character, is able to use extendable attacks that can counter characters like Taz. He is capable of inflicting a high amount of damage, and he can secure a knockout by swallowing opponents with low health.

Unfortunately, it’s his only ability that’s really reliable and his combos are predictable, which can be fatal for him as he’s pretty light for a Bruiser. However, Jake is a good character thanks to his good range and small hitbox.

C-Tier Characters

MultiVersus

Reindog – Reindog is an original character created by Warner Bros. Interactive only for MultiVersus. Although the character is cute and has a long in-game biography, he is a support character who excels at healing his allies. He’s at a disadvantage up close, but he’s great at punishing those who play Finn and abuse his hitbox.

His combos are generally appreciated, though his fireball projectiles are quite slow and predictable. If the projectiles hit, they set opponents on fire. One of his best assets is his ability to steer his allies away from impending danger.

wonder woman – Wonder Woman is a Tank, although realistically the superhero is half Support and half Tank who can take a lot of damage, although her cooldowns are frequent enough to keep her somewhere in Tiers B and C Wonder Woman’s best assets are her protective abilities, which make her hard to kill.

The character must be methodical, as applying her down special spawns a shield that protects her allies, meaning players must stay close to their teammates, and she maintains armor when attacking. It is powerful against projectiles.

Garnet – While Bruisers are often considered the best characters, Garnet is a little too slow to maneuver, which has left players rather unsatisfied. She is limited in the level of her combos, which is fine enough for casual play, but not for ranked play. Garnet moves slowly, but if she gets close, her attack is powerful, and she can be charged up to do maximum damage.

Unlike other Bruisers, she has more projectiles, making her dangerous from near and far. Its projectiles are rather predictable and slow, which reduces its potential.

D-Tier Characters

MultiVersus

The Iron Giant – He is an easy target to hit due to the immense size of his hitbox. Its size and inability to dodge compensate for high damage, provided it can get close to the enemy. This Tank is very good if it stays in the field, especially if it is able to crush its opponents with its low-air special.

Off the field, he struggles to recover, despite his ability to fly. His bolts and rage meter are the robot’s best mechanics, as the former acts as a shield, while the meter empowers him for a brief period.

Superman – In MultiVersus, Superman is a suffering Tank in 1v1. Its durability and recovery are very high, but it is not very effective in a fast environment because it is slow and predictable. Competitive players are likely to defeat this character quickly because of this.

Clark Kent can do a lot of damage with his standard attacks, but he has to charge them. His laser eyes are good for controlling terrain, but too slow to take an enemy by surprise.

Steven Universe – This isn’t Steven Universe’s first appearance in a video game, but his first time as a supporting character. Steven is meant to be a defensive character, but he doesn’t work when the game gets faster, and he usually needs to stick with his allies.

Steven doesn’t offer much with his kit, as he’s really there to protect others. He can’t take much damage before being defeated, however, he excels when saving his allies by deploying platforms and a shield.
