General Tier List

GrimMechs' tier lists take each variant in the game and rates its best representive build against all other mechs. Builds are considered min-maxed, which may sometimes assume a high level of aptitude on part of the pilot. Engines and ammo counts provided are not necessarily gospel, but generally represent what the best players tend to use.

The General Tier List focuses on what is the best in the Quick Play meta (solo and group queue, traditionally dominated by mid-range builds), but is generally applicable to all game modes.
