The best Naraka Bladepoint characters and how to play them

Looking for a Naraka Bladepoint tier list? The sharp new battle royale game swung its way into the Steam charts during both of its open betas and is looking to do the same on its release day, thanks to a combination of precise, third-person melee combat and the ability to grapple and swing majestically across its intricate map.

If you’re planning on jumping into the fray, you may be wondering which character to pick. There are currently seven confirmed Naraka Bladepoint characters available to choose from: Viper Ning, Temulch, Matari, Tarka Ji, Kurumi, Yoto Hime, and Tianhai. Onmyouji’s Yoto Hime is a pre-order bonus character, and more new characters may be revealed after the game’s release.

Across the two betas, it appears that players have determined which characters are currently the strongest, which are the best Naraka Bladepoint weapons they can use, and which could benefit from a balance change. In the meantime, here are the best Naraka Bladepoint characters, so you can decide who to start with in August.
