Undead World tier list; four heroes surrounded in light

Undead World is a survival RPG strategy game with a mixture of simple, yet rewarding, progression, engaging strategy, and a unique art style. Gather a squad of powerful heroes, kit them out, and go head-to-head with hordes of zombies – it’s up to you to save the world from the zombie apocalypse.

But who deserves the coveted spot on your team? Well, in our Undead World tier list, we’ll tell you who’s currently topping the tables for each hero type, including AoE, melee, ranged, support, and tank, so you can choose who’s best for you. We’ll also go into factional synergies, and how to use them to your advantage. Keep in mind that the game is still quite new, so this tier list is subject to change. Be sure to check back occasionally, as we’ll update the ranks as new information or updates come out.

Undead World Factions and bonuses

There are lots of different Undead World factions each with their own personality types and viewpoints. There are times in the game where picking characters from a specific faction is integral to progressing, equipping certain items, or unlocking certain buffs, so it’s always worth keeping an eye on these.

Undead World factions also have specific bonuses when teamed up in certain ways. You’ll gain a +20% damage increase if you pair up the following:

  • Blue Banshees with Hive
  • Hive with Collegium
  • Collegium with Sugar Reapers
  • Sugar Reapers with Blue Banshees
  • Gungir with Altered
  • Altered with Gungir

You also get bonuses if you use multiple heroes from the same faction.

  • Two heroes from the same faction: HP +5%, attack power +5%
  • Three heroes from the same faction and two heroes from a different faction: HP +10%, attack power +10%
  • Four heroes from the same faction: HP +15%, attack power +15%
  • Five heroes from the same faction: HP +20%, attack power +20%
