There are eight operators in Shatterline, each of which fills a different role. Most players will be naturally more interested in Troopers and Exos, but Supports and Recons are just as important to winning matches in both PvE and PvP modes. 

This Shatterline guide will provide you with a tier list of the best operators in the game. You will learn about their best perks, as well as their strengths and weaknesses.

S-Tier Operators

Orbit

  • Class Type: Trooper.

It's no secret how crucial it is to utilize walls and cover to stay out of an enemy's sight lines, but no one can get away from Orbit. His Spy Drone allows you to not only hover over obstacles and check for hiding players, but also to scan through most obstacles on any map, thus revealing campers and other players.

Orbit's ultimate ability is Crystalline Injection, which obliterates any enemy, but if used on yourself, it heals and gives you strength, something especially useful in PvP mode.

Strix

  • Class Type: Exo.

Strix is all about movement and mobility. Her unique heavy machine-gun Volcano has an ultimate ability, but that's not the only thing that makes her a top-tier character.

She also carries two types of grenades: Wall Grenade and Crystalline Grenade. Both can be used as a combo: the first one creates a barrier, and the second one creates an area of effect that immobilizes enemy players, thus deadlocking them and turning them into easy prey. Finally, Strix is one of the few characters capable of opening concealed supply drops in PvE.

A-Tier Operators

Malva

  • Class Type: Support.

Malva is a healer with limited offensive abilities, but you don't pick her to fight enemies: you pick her to heal and revive teammates.

Use her Medkit and Healing Station to heal your allies, as well as yourself. Her station heals allies within an area of effect, while you'll need to drop medkits on the ground and interact with them to heal yourself. If you can't find cover, use her Drone Pinscher, which can defend her temporarily. 

Mongoose

  • Class Type: Trooper.

If you find Orbit a bit too complicated, then Mongoose could be a solid alternative, as mastering his techniques is much easier.

Just like Strix, he carries two types of grenades: Frag Grenade and Smoke Grenade. Both are easy to use and should be familiar to anyone who has played first-person shooters: one deals damage and one produces smoke for cover. Mongoose also has a useful grenade launcher.

Ram

  • Class Type: Exo.

Ram has a number of cool abilities that can easily make him one of your favorites, though they are hard to use and unpredictable. Ram is a high-risk, high-reward Operator. 

His Hyperdash jetpack allows him to get high in the air and see the entire area, quickly locating hiding or flanking enemies. Keep in mind that they'll likely see you, too, making you vulnerable to attack. Throwing Axe can insta-kill enemies if your aim is perfect. Miss, though, and it could be you who's KIA.

B-Tier Operators

Pill

  • Class Type: Support.

Pill is another healer, and some players may argue that he is better than Malva due to his healing drone. Pill's Med Drone is very effective, as it automatically seeks and heals downed or injured allies. But unlike Malva, Pill has no defensive abilities of his own. You can use his Stasis Field to slow down opponents, but they can still shoot and throw grenades to cause damage.

Brisa

  • Class Type: Recon.

Brisa has many unique techniques that allow her to stealthily move around the map, such as her Tactical Cloak. But it doesn't make her invisible entirely, and many players can recognize it rather quickly.

But if you enjoy playing with a sniper rifle, Brisa's Crystalline Rifle can make her a contender for main. 

Kite

  • Class Type: Recon.

Kite is a somewhat underwhleming combination of Strix and Brisa. He has the same Wall Grenade as Strix, as well as climbing abilities borrowed from Brisa. Though his Crystalline Revolver is powerful, it has low accuracy. You could also utilize his Remote Mines to detonate walls, but you could also just as well climb over them.

Shatterline: Best Weapons Tier List https://www.gameskinny.com/z19d5/shatterline-best-weapons-tier-list https://www.gameskinny.com/z19d5/shatterline-best-weapons-tier-list Wed, 21 Sep 2022 10:13:11 -0400 Sergey_3847

Currently, there are 25 weapons in Shatterline, all of which are divided into five categories: submachine guns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, shotguns, and sidearms (pistols). To make the most of every match, you'll need to focus on the best across the game. 

This Shatterline guide will list only the best weapons in a tier list fashion, ranging from S-Tier to B-Tier, including their strengths and weaknesses.

S-Tier Weapons

Tornado

  • Type: Submachine Gun.

Shatterline SMGs are especially powerful, and the best in the game is undoubtedly Tornado, which is perfectly balanced in all aspects. It has good stability, a high fire rate, and surprisingly high damage. All this makes Tornado well-suited for both PvE and PvP modes. It also has a default magazine size of 50 rounds.

However, since it's the final weapon in the Armory tree, you will have to unlock all other SMGs before you can grab this one.

A-9 Legatus

  • Type: Assault Rifle.

If you're more interested in the highest possible fire rate than the gun stability, then the Legatus would be an excellent alternative to the SMG.

Both Tornado and Legatus have the same reload speed at 2.5 seconds, but Legatus has a smaller magazine of only 30 bullets, which can be enhanced with an extension attachment.

For an assult rifle, Legatus doesn't have a ton of range, but if mastered, it can become your best weapon.

A-Tier Weapons

SAG-8 Reaper

  • Type: Sniper Rifle.

Want a sniper rifle that can one-shot an enemy? The SAG-8 Reaper fits the bill with its high damage stat. It also has a decent range for a sniper rifle, though it could have better aiming and stability stats. You can improve the sway stability while aiming, using the Reaper Mural modification.

XM-27 Pacifier

  • Type: Assault Rifle.

Many consider Pacifier one of the best ARs in the game, and it can easily be compared to Legatus, as they share almost similar stats. Pacifier has only one drawback: low accuracy.

There is the Pacifier Neon mod, which increases aiming by 20%, but it's still a bit of work to shoot targets precisely. Other than that, Pacifier is another excellent choice among all other ARs available in the game.

Z-940 Drachen

  • Type: Submachine Gun.

Drachen is probably the only SMG in Shatterline that doesn't require any additional attachments; stat-wise, this weapon is a real beast in all regards.

However, its bullet drop is quite significant, and the further you are from your enemy, the less damage it deals. If you're standing 30 meters away from the target, it will take only 5 bullets for Pacifier to kill an enemy, but it takes Drachen 11 bullets.

B-Tier Weapons

R21 Brute

  • Type: Shotgun.

Shotguns typically have high damage stats and a low rate of fire. What makes Brute such a good shotgun is the speed at which it fires.

Although it still has significant recoil, it works as a solid close-range weapon that doesn't require a dozen shots to kill an enemy. The developer recently increased its range, too, making it a deadlier threat.

G5 Earl

  • Type: Sidearm.

Any experienced player can confirm that having a pistol as your sidearm is absolutely essential for winning match-ups in PvP mode. The reason is that in Shatterline, reloading a gun takes longer than simply switching to another weapon. Often in PvP, you don't have long to reload, and that's where switching to the Earl pistol could be a real game changer.

G5 Earl has the highest accuracy among all pistols in the game. But as with all pistols, the bullet drop is quite steep; high precision works only in close range combat, and the effect will be mitigated once your target gets further away.

U44 Culverina

  • Type: Sidearm.

If you want a pistol with both high damage and range, then the Culverina revolver can really make a difference.

While the Culverina is powerful, it's harder to aim than some other sidearms, so you'll still need to use this as close to your target as possible. It somewhat makes up for that, though, with one of the shortest reload times in the game, clocking at only 1.7 seconds.
