BEST & WORST SKILLS in Survivor.io Tier List
Starting off in the C tier we have the Pressure Forcefield and Fuel Barrel.
Every tank-like build will likely include the pressure force field. The energy cube used to evolve into the pressure forcefield with the forcefield device will heal a percentage of health every few seconds which makes it valuable in many scenarios. In addition, the pressure forcefield will essentially surround you with a giant forcefield that pushes enemies away that try to get too close.
The Fuel Barrell ignites the earth around you in short increments dealing lasting damage to enemies that walk over the flames. The fuel barrel is great at keeping enemies away from your personal space as it will deal high damage and it won’t push them back compared to other short ranged skills like the defender or pressure forcefield.
Next, in the B tier, we have the whistling arrow, magnetic dart, and dumbbell.
The whistling arrow is essentially a homing missile that loops around the enemy dealing damage and assassinating them along the way. It can deal damage to enemies all over the map from a long distance to close range. It’s especially great in open levels where you are free to run from side to side.
When you evolve the high-power magnet and boomerang you get 2 magnetic darts that will simultaneously fly around you dealing damage at a further distance each time. When it comes to skills that practically surround you like the pressure forcefield or defender. I sometimes prefer to use the magic dart as it will potentially cause more damage and the high-power magnet used to evolve into the magnet dart will increase your loot range making it easier to level up or spam heals.
The Dumbbell is an evolution skill that deals high penetration damage in every direction around you. The dumbbell will project dumbbells in every direction around you that deal damage and travel through the enemy. It is a great skill that can be used to take out high-hp enemies.
In the A tier, we have the Sharkmaw Gun, Quantum Ball, Defender, and Destroyer.
The Sharkmaw Gun shoots a large bullet right through the enemy, dealing penetration damage and exploding after a certain duration which can cause high AOE damage.
This skill is great to use in levels with narrow pathways where you can’t run from left to right. If you need to create a pathway through groups of enemies the Sharkmaw gun is probably your best bet.
One thing I have noticed about the Sharkmaw Gun is that it can be very good or very bad against bosses depending on the location of impact. The explosion damage caused by the gun will cause the most damage so if you are able to get the bullet to explode on impact with the boss you can potentially deal a high volume of damage. On the other hand, the bullet may just penetrate through the boss without causing much damage.
The quantum ball launches multiple balls throughout the enemy that bounce along like ping pong balls dealing damage along the way. The quantum ball is a pretty good choice for most game modes and several types of builds as it can kill multiple enemy targets from a distance. Furthermore, in theory, the quantum ball excels in narrow levels where it has less room to bounce and more enemies to hit.
The defender turns you into a lawnmower where you can essentially mow over zombies. With the defender, you can basically run everything over if you’re strong enough, or trim the hedges with the blades by running along the sides of the enemy. The defender not only deals high damage to enemies that approach you it will also knock them back.
The destroyer is an evolved weapon skill that might require the most skill to use effectively. It is exceptional against bosses if you are able to manually target the boss with the drone’s trajectory indicators or hitboxes.
Since you don’t need to use supplies to evolve to the Destroyer drone it allows you to use supplies you may not otherwise use.
It’s one of the most interesting evolutions and I think it deserves its own video.
Last but not least, in the S tier, is the Thunderbolt Power Cell
Thunderbolt Power Cell
In my opinion, the Thunderbolt Power Cell might be the best-evolved weapon skill in the game.
It is great against bosses because it causes high damage and you don’t have to aim, it will automatically target the boss and deal damage.
It’s also great throughout chapters and other game modes as it can deal massive damage all over the map.
