Vermintide 2 Tier List for Classes [2023 Update]

Vermintide 2 is a 4-player co-op action game set in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world.

In the story, five heroes have returned to take on an even more significant threat. This class tier list will rank each playable character’s classes from S Tier to C Tier in Vermintide 2.

Except for Sienna Fuegonasus not having a DLC class, every other playable character has four playable classes. You unlock the first in the beginning, the second upon reaching level 7, and the third upon reaching level 12.

Premium Classes are the fourth DLC classes that players can purchase with money. This Tier list will also include those classes, so keep that in mind.

Keep in mind though that tier lists exist to help players get a feel of what is considered strong in the game and tend to be subjective. Above all, you should play the game the way you want to.

If you like a class that is ranked lower or you can make something work because you like it or because your skills are suited for it, don’t let anything stop you. Play the game, enjoy the time you spend with it and create memorable experiences.

With all that aside, let’s get into some more details for the higher-ranked classes, which can be considered the absolute best in Warhammer Vermintide 2!

S Tier

Battle Wizard

Vermintide-2-class-Tier-List-battle-wizard

Battle Wizard is the first class unlocked by Sienna Fuegonasus. Despite its early unlocking time, it is a powerhouse of a class. Focusing on horde clear, crowd control, and dealing heavy amounts of damage.

Fire Walk teleports you forward leaving a fire trail, and knocking back any nearby foes. Tranquility, your passive allows you to vent naturally while you’re not casting spells.

She also has increased spell charge speed by up to 30% when Overcharged and a 10% increased spell range.

Give her a Flame Sword and the Coruscation Staff, a damage over time build and watch everything die. Pick Famished Flames at level 10, and Soot Shield at level 25 to maximize the damage you do and minimize the damage you take.

Mercenary

Vermintide-2-class-tier-list-mercenary

Mercenary is Marcus Kruber’s first unlockable class, and it focuses on horde clearing with unrivaled cleaving capabilities.

Morale boost staggers nearby enemies and grants allies 25 temporary HP. Paced Strikes, your passive increases attack speed when hitting three enemies in one swing.

The Mercenary has high attack speed, 5% extra crit chance by default, and extra cleave. You can clear crowds of cannon fodder and create space for your team.

Give him either the Mace and Sword, the Spear, or the Executioner Sword and the Handgun.

Couple that with the level 30 talent Morale Boost granting allies not only extra HP but also damage reduction, and it’s no wonder why it’s an S-tier class.

A Tier

Witch Hunter Captain

Vermintide-2-class-Tier-List-Witch-Hunter-Captain

Witch Hunter Captain is Victor Saltzpyre’s first unlockable class, and it focuses on being a melee/ranged hybrid with lots of critical damage.

Give him the Rapier or the Billhook with the Crossbow or the Pistols, along with the level 20 talent Wild Fervor to combo with his passives.

Grail Knight

Vermintide-2-class-Tier-List-Grail-Knight

Grail Knight is Marcus Kruber’s fourth class, which is purchasable DLC, being a melee-only class forcing you to only equip two melee weapons.

Give him the Executioner Sword or the Bretonian Sword and Shield, along with the level 20 talent Virtue of the Penitent to greatly benefit from the repeatable quest.

Warrior Priest of Sigmar

Vermintide-2-class-Tier-List-Warrior-Priest-of-Sigmar

Warrior Priest of Sigmar is Victor Saltzpyre’s fourth class, which is purchasable DLC, being the greatest tank in the game.

The Flail and Shield is a reliable anti-horde weapon, as its charged attack not only has a widespread and cleave but also comes with the Ignore Shields attribute and combo that with the level 30 talent The Comet’s Gift to revive and heal allies.

Ranger Veteran

Vermintide-2-class-Tier-List-Ranger-Veteran

Ranger Veteran is Bardin Goreksson’s first class, and he focuses on ranged damage and providing ammunition for his team.

Use the Double Hammer and the Masterwork Pistol along with the level 20 talent Scavenger and be a great support for your team.

Sister of the Thorn

Vermintide-2-class-Tier-List-Sister-of-the-Thorn

Sister of the Thorn is Kerillian’s fourth class, being purchasable DLC, and gives the elf a ranged/melee hybrid support class that excels in damage and crowd control.

Give her the Sword and Dagger with the Deepwood staff along with the level 30 talent Tanglegrasp Thicket and be a great asset to any team.

Unchained

Vermintide-2-class-Tier-List-Unchained

Unchained is Sienna Fuegonasus’ third class unlocked at level 12, which shifts her playstyle from being a ranged horde killer to an explosive frontline tank.

Give her the Flail and the Coruscation staff, along with the level 20 talent Conduit and the level 30 talent Bomb Balm.

Ironbreaker

Vermintide-2-tier-list-Ironbreaker-class

Iron Breaker is Bardin Goreksson’s second class, unlocked at level 7, and if you utilize your class skill and talents well you can become an unbreakable tank.

Give him the Dual Hammers and the Trollhammer Torpedo, and play around his level 20 talent The Rolling Mountain, and the level 30 Drengbarazi Oath.

Conclusion

To sum up, this has been my Vermintide 2 tier list. With lots of different classes to choose from, I feel confident this tier list will be a great benefit to many players.

Maybe even get some of you to try out new things, and even a build or two you never previously considered.
