I guess I could write another tier list. Assume a team game on a land map, and this is a "how good do I think this unit is" rating rather than "how well does this match the raider ideal".
I feel less confident about most ratings on this list than I did for the assault list. I think claiming Scorcher, Glaive, Kodachi or mayyyybe Bandit/Pyro as the "best raider" in teams are all defensible positions - I would not call any of them S tier teams units though. Obviously 1v1 meta will be different.A tier:Scorcher
When you need sheer DPS, accept no substitutes. Veh movement makes it a little clumsier than the bot raiders, though.B tier:Glaive
B-plus, some days feels A-tier. Glaive is a bit less explosive than Scorcher but more nimble. Bandit less explosive again, but it can cosplay as an antiraider if it needs to.Kodachi
A tier early, but impact falls off a cliff after that, especially Kodachi. I suck with both of these.C tier:Dagger
This unit absolutely can
be good. Very strong in some raider matchups, and trashes air. But in my experience there are an awful lot of jobs I want my raiders to do that Dagger does not have the DPS to get done.Duck
I've been underwhelmed with Duck lately. On land, anyway. Obviously still good as a water unit.D tier:Blitz
Not worthless by any means, but I am typically not happy to be building it. This is metal that could be going into a Minotaur or Cyclops.Locust
There are probably maps where this is good in small teams. Most games this doesn't seem very good though.
: S-tier. Has no competition at what it does well.Dart
: B to B-plus. Big fan of this unit. Good scout, good at slowing things for Scorcher to kill, good for snaring striders and as chaff late.Dirtbag
: B-minus. Mostly useful for inflicting Emotional Damage. Against a good player who is not tilting, Dirtbag is occasionally good but most often not.
: A-tier. Strongest and most versatile unit in this category. Like Dart the slow can be a nasty surprise for anything up to strider weight.Venom
: B to B-plus. Not as versatile as Bolas in terms of what it can fight, but being all-terrain is nice.Archer
: B-tier. This is fine. Not really exciting. It gets the job done.Redback
: Really more of a riot, but somebody mentioned it above so... B-plus to A-minus.
I don't know how to rate Scythe. I suck with it and nobody has wowed me with it recently, but I don't think it has been nerfed much since the last time it felt good. Somewhere in the B to A range I guess.
