Blade Ball is all about deflecting a homing ball to try and murder other players. When the ball turns red, it means it’s coming for you, and if you don’t deflect, you’ll die and earn the player who deflected it coins. But with these coins, you can purchase different abilities that can give you an advantage on the battlefield. We’ve added two new abilities from the Blade Ball 4.8 update: Aerodynamic Slash!

Blade Ball Tier List FAQ

How do the Tiers Work?

Our tiers are ranked from best to worst and assess the overall usefulness of the ability.

  • S-Tier: These are the best-of-the-best and likely overpowered. If you get one of these, you should keep it and not change anything.
  • A-Tier: These are outstanding performers and would be a great addition to your character. Due to the rarity of an S-Tier, it might be better to just hold onto one of these because the other ones are so hard to get.
  • B-Tier: Can be good for a while, but you will likely want to upgrade these at some point.
  • C-Tier: While not great it at least functions as somewhat of an improvement to your character.

How were the Rankings Decided?

When creating our tier lists, we strive to gather information from a variety of sources. Although our gameplay experience serves as one reference point, our primary goal is to create comprehensive lists that cater to a wide range of playstyles. To achieve this, we also consider the rankings and opinions of other players in the game community.

When is the Blade Ball Ability Tier List Updated?

Our team is committed to keeping the list current by regularly revising it to reflect new releases and balance changes. Therefore, we highly recommend that you check back periodically to stay updated with the latest rankings.
