For now, this ranking is based on limited early information. This is bound to change in the near future, and we’ll update you as soon as that happens.

Rank Catalyst Black banner
S Vanguard, Assassin
A Protector, Ranger
B Primal Hunter, Primalist
C Seeker, Support
D Sniper

Damage increases and health increases are key. Assassin does the former, and Vanguard does the latter. Movement speed is similarly useful for avoiding attacks, making Ranger a handy banner, while Protector boosts your base health which is always useful.

Primal Hunter helps you take down primal enemies, but often they’re so big and tanky you’ll need multiple allies to support you. Primalist makes your primal form more powerful, but that’s only a small part of the game that it affects.

Seeker helps the amount of stuff you pick up like ammo – useful but not that much. Support reduces your ability cooldown, which is only a slight help in-game. And Sniper increases your damage from long-range, which doesn’t sound all that helpful.

That’s all the Catalyst Black tier list info we’ve got for now. For something a little different, head over to our Coin Master free spins and Genshin Impact codes lists for free stuff in some of the biggest mobile games.
