Zenless Zone Zero Agents Tier List

Updated: 9/7/2024

About the Tier List:

The tier list aims to rate the different Agents in the game based on their individual damage output, team synergy and compatibility, mobility and general ease of use, and finally, their overall combat capabilities in many different contents in the game.

The tier list is divided into 3 categories of characters based on their roles in a team and based on what they are capable of: DPS, Specialty, and Support.

DPS Agents excel at being the main source of damage in a team, making them the primary focus of many different team compositions.


Specialty Agents specializes in many different gimmicks and playstyles, making them diverse. It is important to note that since Specialized Agents are quite diverse, it is important to understand the different mechanics each Agent of this category brings before comparing them. For Example: An S Rank Counter Specialty Agent should not be compared to an S Rank Anomaly Specialty Agent as they do different things in a team.


Support Agents focus on providing the team with various beneficial buffs or effects that allows DPS and Specialty Agents to do more damage to enemies on the field.


Please note that characters from different categories of the same tier does not necessarily mean that they are on par with each other overall. For example, an S Tier Agent in the Support category might not perform as well as an S Tier Agent in the DPS category as their standard of ratings are different.

Rating Information:

S Tier: These Agents are currently the best characters of their respective elements and their playstyle offers players a satisfactory gameplay experience in addition to either being able to deal massive amounts of damage or being able to support the entire team efficiently with their skills.


A Tier: These Agents perform well in many fights and help to supplement the Agents at the S Tier in suitable teams. The Agents in this rank are good in many situations, however, their capabilities are either lesser than that of S Tier Agents in terms of damage output or in terms of the difficulty in their playstyle.


B Tier: These Agents are those that fall short in terms of both DPS and Support capabilities when compared to others. While their combat prowess are decent enough and they can hold their own in various contents, when compared with other characters, they need extreme investment to become powerful.

Best Agents Tier List & Which Agents Should You Build

Agents Tier List Criteria Explanation - How We Rate Each Agents

The Agents in Zenless Zone Zero are divided into many different archetypes and many different roles depending on their own combat performance and the type of Elemental Damage that they can provide on the field.


Generally, the Agents in Zenless Zone Zero can be divided into 5 archetypes based on their classes in-game:


- Attack: These Agents excel at dishing out damage against enemies on the field and are the primary damage dealer in the majority of team compositions, they hold the position of the main DPS in a team and are the heart of most team compositions.

- Defense: These Agents have incredible Defensive Bulk and have gameplay mechanics revolving around tanking the enemies’ attacks and dishing out damage in return. These Agents are valued as tanks in the team comps and can help mitigate the damage taken by the team.

- Anomaly: These Agents primary strong point lies in their ability to take advantage of the different Attribute Anomaly Effects of the different Elements and amplifies their effects by quickly building them up or boosting their damage output.

- Stun: These Agents are excellent at dealing rapid attacks to raise the enemies’ Daze gauge to full in order to make them enter the Stunned state, helping to initiate Chain Attacks with other Agents and create opportune moments for good damage.

- Support: These Agents are primarily the main damage boosting source in many team comps with their ability to boost the team’s damage output with their abilities as well as crowd controlling enemies to help the team deal more damage.


In this tier list, we will rank the different Agents by grouping them into 3 distinct category in order to signify the different roles the Agents fills in the team and based on how well they perform in those roles:


- DPS Agents: This category mainly concerns Attack Agents due to their offensive nature as main DPS.

- Specialty Agents: This category contains Anomaly, Defense and Stun Agents due to their unique playstyle in different team compositions.

- Support Agents: This category belongs to Support Agents thanks to their unique ability to boost the team’s damage.


Aside from their archetypes, the Agents are also divided into 5 different Elements based on the Elemental Damage that they can deal when they are on field: Fire, Ice, Electric, Ether & Physical. 

However, do note that, for example, an S Rank Ice DPS Agent and an S Rank Fire DPS Agent should not be compared to each other as they fulfill their roles in different teams and should not be compared to each other.
