- Good (A-tier) : Seeker, Anvil, Chaac, Dallas, Dima, Ronin, Kestrel, Trench
- Average (B-tier) : Phantom, Gl1tch, Switchblade, Talon, Vy, Mack
Dahlia is hands down the best Support in the game due to her Danger Close ability that allows her to revive teammates from long-distance. Her key perks include Lifeline, Tenacity, and Replenish. This allows her to bring teammates to life faster, take less damage from Explosives and also recover ammunition from downing enemies. Then we have The Fixer, who is simply one of the deadliest characters to play as or against. His thermal ability is insanely strong and his rate of fire is faster than other snipers, making it very easy to take enemies down. Moreover, he can reload while sprinting and also takes less damage from melee attacks.
On the other hand, we have Sigrid, whose ballistic shield and fast movements make her an unstoppable force. Through her Nimble Hands perk, she is able to switch between weapons faster and also get some of her health back when she downs an enemy. Moreover, she also has the Lifeline perk like Dahlia which reduces the time taken to revive allies. Then we have Lancer who is both quick on her feet and silent, making her less detectable. Dodge-rolling reloads her ammunition and she can reveal the location of her enemies to her teammates if she lands a hit on them. Her reload times are lower and her shots deal more damage.
Saint is also an S-tier Support who can revive allies from anywhere on the map through his medical drone. Moreover, reviving an ally also replenishes his own health. However, he is also useful in combat as his Assault rifle combines a high fire rate with burst shots, and he also has the Headstrong perk that gives him a 25 Armour buff. Lastly, we have Scorch who is one of the best duelists in the game. Through her Overheat ability, she is able to deal additional damage using firepower or melee attack that sets enemies on fire for 10 seconds. This substantially reduces their health and makes it easier to defeat enemies. Moreover, she also has perks such as Tenacity, Nimble Hands, Evade, and Replenish which allows players to switch between weapons quicker, deal less damage and replenish ammo when downing enemies.
