The new tower defense title Defense Derby is a battle game with a twist! As an online 4-player multiplayer, this is like no tower defense you have played before. It’s fresh, fun, and intense! Survival depends on how well you strategize, defend, and build your deck of characters.
With each team member having their own abilities and strengths, it is imperative you know who to bid on to add to your team. Placing units of the same type next to each other increases their strength, but you should also have a decent range of types. Let’s explore which team combinations are the best in Defense Derby!
Defense Derby team tier list
Building the right deck is the only way to defend your team successfully. Every character can be useful, but some are stronger than others. You can also strengthen your characters by stacking the factions or types: putting Humans with Humans or Magic with Magic, for example.
For individual team member rankings, you can check out our character tier list and see which hero is best to pick for your next game! Meanwhile, we have sorted teams of units into tiers, from the best (S-Tier) to the not-so-great (C-Tier).
- S-Tier: the best of the best, and a team of characters you will want to spend your Derby Chips on!
- A-Tier: these are the next best team combinations you want to try out to finish before your opponents.
- B-Tier: average teams who aren’t the worst but could be better. These guys need to be used with great strategy to win!
- C-Tier: the last choice, but still a good one. Not as strong as the ones above, but you could do worse. It is all about the strategy!
