The Best Heroes in Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus
Let’s not waste any more time, here’s the tier list…
Commissar Yarrik is probably the strongest and most complete heroes in Warhammer 40k Tacticus right now. You can pick him up with the starter pack (and for that value it’s worth the few dollars if you’re open to spend some money on the game). Summons like crazy, summoned units will fire immediately and will always keep the pressure high on the opponent, no matter what.
Aleph-Null is simply insane. He can swarm scarabs that, themselves, have the chance to multiply again so it’s not very rare to see a battlefield full of scarabs and by that time your opponent has a really hard time doing anything than dealing with them what keep him completely busy and you can snowball victory. One of the most overpowered heroes in Warhammer 40k Tacticus right now!
Isabella can be nuts, honestly. Heals all friendly units which is already really strong but her Imperial revive that can also effect summons can make her one of the craziest heroes in the map if combined right and really annoying to deal with for your opponent.
Archimatos is another summoner hero and, for me, the best Black Legion hero overall right now. Just versatile, all stats in place and does a great job in what he does and unless the meta changes dramatically soon against summoners, he will run a good show.
Typhus would be, just on the plain field, be an A-Tier hero for me, but the fact that his area damage wanders through hexagons and is really effective against setups that use spawners makes him very useful right now in dealing with the meta. I write this so you don’t think ‘oh let’s go all-in on this guy’ and then some balancing takes spawners out of the meta and you’ll be left behind with a simple AoE hero. Invest and run him as applicable but don’t go too far with him.
High Brother Helbrecht is probably the best support hero in Warhammer 40k Tacticus and his ability will make all allies deal 50% of their damage, including summons. In the current meta really strong.
I had a tough time ranking Anuphet between A Tier and S Tier as he’s a summoner but not as crazy as the heroes above, so I think top of the A Tier will suit him well. Yes, summoners are the meta right now and that’s all needed.
Bellator is quite strong with his ability to summon a clone and loads of armor. In the current meta in Warhammer 40k Tacticus summoners are strong and although Bellator is not a classical summoner he has the clone that makes him strong overall.
Snotflogga is also a spawner (I know it’s getting boring but it is what it is…) and therefor strong, although not the craziest of all of them but still dominates a lot.
Gibbascrapz is also a summoner but the cool thing about him is that he summons a tank, which can be very useful (plus the tank also deals a good amount of damage as well).
Catellan Creed is a legendary hero, has the stats and also summons. Not the craziest summoner but overall a strong kit.
Morvenn Vahlis probably my favorite legendary heroes of all of them in Warhammer 40k Tacticus right now and a universal kit. We’re not getting deeper into investing and building a legendary hero at this point but just on pure performance, he’s one to have in your mind.
Celestine…when I first read the special ability I though this is by far the craziest hero in Warhammer 40k Tacticus! Summons when getting attacked and immediately triggers her passive ability?! Well, it’s limited to two times per bettale but even that makes her strong.
Marneus Calgaris a legendary hero so he is strong by the way stats and everything is accumulated compared to other hero rarities, no doubt, but overall he’s not that impressive and I would actually not even rank him in the A-Tier if he wouldn’t be a legendary hero…
Abaddon the Despoileris pretty much the same as Marneus, in this tier for the stats as being a legendary hero but nothing really exciting in his kit.
Varro Tiguriusis at the edge of the A-Tier. A good hero but none that will bring that super-extra bang to the table but one that is quite well-rounded and a invest you probably won’t regret.
Vindictadeals good damage and the way the special ability is designed with the double-attack can be really helpful, combined with the range and might help dealing with many summons.
Nauseous Rotbone is also a hero I had a hard time ranking. His special ability with resurrection on overkill is good but not overpowered and everything else seems okay but not crazy. I think bottom of the A-Tier will suit him well right now.
Haarken Worldclaimer is interesting with his damage dealing and his enemy debuff that reduces armor but nothing that changes the world right now in the game and even with great synergies on heroes that scale single target damage up, the meta dictates with summoners and all his viability is not that useful against them.
Imospekh deals a ton of damage, but that’s about it. Don’t get me wrong, he’s good and you will find enough cases where you really appreciate him but he doesn’t bring something else to the table so I can’t rank him in the A-Tier.
Brother Jaeger is interesting but not outstanding so he’s also between a-Tier and B-Tier.
Volk is solid, solid enough to rank him here.
Roswitha is also a solid hero, nothing crazy or outstanding but a good option to have in your roaster.
Kut Skodenis nothing really exciting and although the Frag Bomb ability is not bad, it’s nothing good enough to rank him higher than B Tier.
Certus is probably one of the heroes in Warhammer 40k Tacticus that you can call average in every possible kind of way. A good filler if you need one Ultramarine to fit in or if you roll him in early stages of the game but none to go too crazy about and invest too much into.
Brother Burchard deals okay damage and his targeting is also nice, but the range and everything else in his kit are not too good so I think here in the mediocre mid-field of this tier list is his spot.
Ancient Thoread has this blocking buff mechanics that can be useful, but most of the times it’s not making that much of a difference and other heroes ranked higher are just better when it comes to providing something for your team.
Tanksmashadoesn’t really shine but has situations where he’s useful, although as summons dominate he is not too viable or meta-countering right now.
Makhotep is a borderline rank between C-Tier or B-Tier and no matter how you want to turn it, he’s not a good hero to invest in. His special ability only works when you have non-character units and although summoners are strong it is so depending on the board and situations that he can be good or fail completely and you regret wasting a slot for him.
Maladus is not too interesting and the condition on his special ability is also quite weird to get rolling, I just don’t see him going nuts at any point.
Angrax is nothing special and should not be anything else than an occasional filler hero or one to run at the early start and replaced as quickly as possible. he#s not worthless but also there are so many better options for that slot to run.
Snappawreckadoesn’t do anything special and is like the other heroes in the C Tier, one to run in the early stages until you swap him out. Espcially with so many good other orc faction heroes in Warhammer 40k Tacticus, you won’t even need to think about running him as a filler hero.
Thutmose is at the bottom of the C Tier here but only because he can deal a decent amount of damage, but that’s pretty much all there is and there’s nothing else he contributes to the team. But in earlier stages of the game you can’t go too wrong with him, simply don’t invest too much into him.
Sword Brother Godswylgave me a hard time ranking him but after all I realized it doesn’t matter if high D-Tier or low C-Tier, his skills are weak and he’s no hero you should mind more about than acknowledging his pure existence.
Incisus is actually a pretty disappointing. Yes, healers are quite strong but he is not only the weakest Ultramarine in Warhammer 40k Tacticus, he’s also the weakest healer in the game and doesn’t bring anything else to the game than okay-ish heals. I’d stay away from him. Also his resurrection is less effective than the other heroes having it.
Sibyll Devine is bad and instead of writing basically an essay how bad she is I’ll just leave it with this.
So, I hope this tier list helps you start out and find your first heroes to invest in Warhammer 40k Tacticus. I will update this tier list with the upcoming updated and also when new heroes get added to the game as well, so make sure to check back here once in a while to see what changes in the heroes’ ranking.
