Find the best characters in each class ranked in our Mobile Legends tier list with alternatives, plus guidance on the free heroes.

What are the best Mobile Legends heroes? There are only a select few Mobile Legends free heroes – you’ll have to unlock the majority of them through battle points, which you’ll earn by playing the game, or using diamonds you buy from the store. Typically, new Mobile Legends heroes are stronger and more expensive, to entice you into spending your hard earned coin – but never fear; with the help of our Mobile Legends tier list, you’ll be able to select the most competitive Mobile Legends characters from each class.

We’ve chosen the best characters in each of the six classes for our Mobile Legends tier list. You’ll still need to pay attention to your team composition, but any of these Mobile Legends heroes are strong choices for solo queue – and in case they’re banned by the enemy team, we’ve given you a few strong alternatives you should consider unlocking as backup.

Now, without further ado, let’s get into the tier list.

Best Mobile Legends Assassin

As the name implies, the Assassin class focuses on picking off vulnerable enemies. They’re challenging to play as they tend to be fragile and require skilful execution of abilities to hunt down their prey. Their high burst damage needs to be focused on the right targets to tip the balance in your team’s favour. Check out the Mobile Legends tier list for Assassins below.

C Selena, Helcurt
D Lesley

Best Mobile Legends Fighter

Fighters are melee range characters that have a flexible, balanced skillset to offer a team. Their damage builds up over time, and they’re relatively sturdy, although not as robust as a Tank – they can be adapted to whatever your team needs situationally. Check out the Mobile Legends tier list for Fighters below.

D Aldous

Best Mobile Legends Mage

Mages are powerful spellcasters who use their abilities to dish out bursts of magic damage while also providing crowd control. They tend to be particularly squishy, and they are high-priority targets. Check out the Mobile Legends tier list for Mages below.

Best Mobile Legends Marksman

Mobile Legends marksman heroes are high damage ranged characters – otherwise known as attack damage carries. They are very effective at pushing towers and become increasingly powerful in the late game. It’s crucial to watch your positioning as a marksman and watch out for stronger opponents in the early game, as you may not have the means to escape or retaliate yet. Check out the Mobile Legends tier list for marksmen below.
