There are 13 playable survivors in Evil Dead: The Game, categorized into four different groups: Warrior, Leader, Hunter, and Support. It can be tough for new players to select the best characters in these groups, but don’t worry: this guide is here to help.
We’ll detail their biggest advantages, as well as their weaknesses, which may come in handy when forming your survival team.
Best Survivor Characters in Evil Dead: The Game
Ash Williams (Army Of Darkness)
- Class Type: Warrior.
This variant of Ash Williams is very strong at melee combat, especially when he deploys his Chainsaw (unlocked at Level 25). He’s also good at defending himself against mobs and demons. One of the best things about this version of Ash is that he can restore his own HP, reducing Fear and damage received, as well as increasing his own attack damage.
His Shield Blast ability causes an explosion once his shield gauge is depleted, damaging all nearby enemies. And when you reach Level 10, you can use his Finish Strong perk, which restores his shield gauge after killing an enemy with a finisher. The only thing that Ash from Army Of Darkness lacks is skills in the ranged weapons department.
Henry the Red
- Class Type: Warrior.
Henry the Red’s defensive capabilities are even stronger than those of Ash from Army Of Darkness, and he has the ability to restore his own shield gauge.
The Shields Up and Battle Hardened perks increase his HP pool and the strength of his shield. But his biggest upside is the Rebound ability, which allows him to return the damage dealt by enemies. As is the case with Ash from Army Of Darkness, Henry the Red has very low ranged weapon stats.
- Class Type: Leader.
If you need a strong team leader, then Lord Arthur will do the job perfectly. He is able to increase the attack damage of his teammates and reduce their Fear levels. Since he is the master of the sword, it would obviously be the best choice of weapon, as it allows him to deal extra damage with both heavy and light attacks.
At level 25, you may unlock his Fuel the Fire perk, which makes his Wrath mode last longer if you manage to kill your enemies with a finisher blow. Once again, the only weak spot of Lord Arthur is with ranged weaponry.
- Class Type: Hunter.
Those looking to deal ranged damage should pick Kelly Maxwell. There is no other character in Evil Dead: The Game as proficient in ranged weaponry as Kelly. On top of that, she can dodge attacks without wasting stamina, and her ranged damage also causes bleeding.
But don’t count out her melee mastery. Kelly has two abilities that can come in very handy: Meat Hammer and Battle Frenzy. Meat Hammer increases her hammer’s attack speed and damage, and Battle Frenzy improves her melee damage the longer she stays in combat.
- Class Type: Support.
No team is complete without a solid healer. That’s where Cheryl Williams comes in very handy. Her Healing Aura ability affects all members of the team. All of her passive skills involve drinking Shemp’s Cola, thus healing and reducing Fear for all your teammates.
Her Cola Coaster perk is especially important, as it allows Cheryl to carry extra instances of Shemp’s Cola for the benefit of the entire group. However, she’s relatively weak in other departments, including melee and ranged damage, but that’s not why you take a supporter along in the first place.
