Smite Tier List

Who doesn't like a tier list? Get a quick overview of the best gods in Smite with our up-to-date Smite tier list for the latest season.

Since its release in 2014, Smite has steadily become one of the best free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games in the market.

The developer, Hi-Rez Studios, has successfully crafted an engaging world with balanced gameplay and memorable characters. The main ingredient to all of Smite’s flavor is its roster of characters.

This consists of gods, goddesses and all manner of creatures inspired by a vast spectrum of mythologies.

In this tier list, we will rank all of Smite’s heroes to help players choose the units that will best fit their or their team’s playstyle.

These characters are considered overpowered in the current meta. Even players with limited experience have a good chance of finding success while using them. In the hands of Smite veterans, these characters will always be a problem for the opposing team.

These characters are decent in most scenarios. While not as powerful as their higher-tiered counterparts, these characters have the potential to do well especially in pro matches, where picks for overpowered characters tend to get banned.

Conclusion

Like in all other MOBAs, success in SMITE is dependent on the player’s skill in conjunction with the abilities of the characters they use. Using an S-Tier as a beginner will not guarantee a good game and neither will a veteran using an F-Tier guarantee a bad one.

To truly be helpful to your team, you must recognize and practice the game’s intricacies, character balances and strategies.
