Specialist Tier List

GrimMechs' tier lists take each variant in the game and rate 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 Specialist Tier List organises mechs by engagement range, so you can find peak builds to fit broad strategies. This is especially useful for building Faction Play dropdecks, or lesser-experienced teams in competitive leagues. Ammo may need to be adapted for specific use.
