Rogue Company has 12 characters called 'Rogues'. If you're struggling on which to use, our Rogue Tier List may help you decide.
Rogue Company is a third-person multiplayer shooter made by Hi-Rez Studios which plays in a 4v4 Search and Destroy format, offering exciting engagements and tactical gameplay.
There are a total of twelve characters to play with, named ‘Rogues’. Each Rogue has a different loadout, including weapons, grenades and perks which can be bought in-game through earning cash each round. They also have their own individual abilities, a physical ability such as an explosive or a self-revive, and a passive ability such as being undetectable to UAVs.
Each Rogue is effective in different ways, but here’s our Best Rogues Tier List to help you understand who you should be using.
Rogues – S TIER
The best rogues to use in Rogue Company all have great weapons and abilities, able to deal high damage in any situations
We start off with Lancer. She’s one of the more offensive characters, and her abilities and weapon complement each other perfectly. She wields a submachine gun which deals insane damage and has little recoil, perfect for close-quarters combat. Her ability causes her to mute her footsteps and increase her speed, which is perfect for sneaking up on opponents with ease, and makes for a great flanking Rogue; Lancer is the best Rogue for literally going rogue. Combining her ability and powerful SMG with smoke grenades which can block off lines of sight allowing her to weave around the map at ease puts Lancer in the top category in the Rogue Tier List. Her passive ability of being able to reload whilst rolling, unlike anyone else, is incredibly useful, cementing her place at the top of the best Rogues to use.
Dallas is a Rogue bounty hunter, which comes useful against the better players in the game. Dallas’ ability to locate the highest scoring player on the enemy team for a period of time, each round, is incredibly powerful. This ability shuts down any players that are causing havoc on the flank or someone who can hold down a bomb site on their own. This leaves easy pickings for the rest of the team as you can isolate their better player and eliminate their teammates leaving them outnumbered. As the game develops, Dallas’ ability will be identified as crucial for each team, especially in the latter half of the games. He also has a steady weapon alongside him, easing through gunfights, making him one of the best Rogues to use in Rogue Company.
Scorch has become increasingly popular to use, with her ability to set enemies alight. When her ability is popped, her firearms and melee can set a player on fire, in which she is immune too through her passive. The fire deals quick ticks of damage over time and is perfect for eliminating players that peak lanes and try to dip away with their lives. She’s often a good counter to Lancer. Her weapons are favourable too, with a submachine gun or assault rifle to choose from, making her great up close or at range depending on the weapon selected. Her ability sets here apart here, etching her into the top of the Rogue Tier List as one of the best Rogue Company characters
Rogues – A Tier
Adequate Rogues to use who are good all-rounders but don't excel in a specified area.
Ronin is a great go-to character for anybody first starting on Rogue Company. Her loadout is perfect for someone who is just starting, allowing a lot of variation with a choice of an assault rifle or submachine gun as her primary weapon. Her ability to plant an explosive throwing knife on the map is great for closing off lanes of attack to focus elsewhere and can also down someone upon impact. Her passive ability keeps Ronin off the radar meaning she can be effective to players who either want to flank or post up and hold angles. Ronin is a great all-round Rogue and it’s clear to see why she’s a popular choice as one of the best Rogue characters in Rogue Company.
Dima is an all-round damage master, with a solid assault rifle or powerful submachine gun to choose from. His power, however, lies in his ability. His cluster grenade can have devastating effects, great for cleaning players out of a specific area. There isn’t much wrong with Dima, and he is unfortunate to miss out on the S-Tier ranking. He doesn’t necessarily excel in a specific aspect of gameplay, which is why he isn’t ranked higher, rather a solid all-round choice capable of destruction.
Talon has one of the best SMG’s in Rogue Company, the same as Lancer. His abilities differ from the stealthy flankers though, utilising knowledge rather than aggression. He is able to release a radar which acts as a UAV around a certain area of the map. When used correctly it can be effective in locating players routes and which bomb site they are heading towards. By locating his radar at bombsite A, you can flood bombsite B with players, ready to move over if a ping is alerted on the UAV. His long-range combat isn’t brilliant, but as an SMG player, Talon is a great choice as one of the best Rogue characters, earning himself a spot in Tier A of our Rogues Tier List.
Rogues – B Tier
Rogues that are effective in many circumstances, but have noticeable flaws.
Glitch has a similar ability to Dallas and Ronin, which makes him somewhat less popular and useful as he could be. His ability allows him to detect the nearest person to him, making them visible to the whole team. This is an effective way of making sure that he doesn’t get snuck up on, although it has to be manually activated. His passive allows him to detect equipment through walls, which is handy if you’re playing in a team. If it wasn’t for Dallas and Ronin having better scanning abilities, Glitch would be higher on our list, but his ability doesn’t match theirs, placing him further down the Rogues Tier List.
Chaac is one of the easier characters to understand, with a very basic loadout. His passive ability is where he excels and can be the best Rogue Company character for beginners. It allows Chaac to self-revive if an opponent downs him and doesn’t thirst the kill. This offers a second chance to players using Chaac, a great way to begin the game and learn the ropes.
Saint is by no means a bad Rogue. In fact, he can be incredibly important to teams, especially on larger maps such as High Castle and Panama Canal. He is the only Rogue to carry a sniper and this makes him a solid choice for a Rogue. He is the best Rogue Company character to hold down angles and eliminate players from distance. He misses out on a higher spot due to the damage of the sniper, however, which makes it rather difficult to finish kills off. It causes 80 damage to anywhere apart from the head, which leaves the enemy with 20 health. A quick shot with a pistol will down an opponent shortly after being sniped, but it may very well be that you end up with a lot of assists with teammates finishing off the kill. Headshots are a straight down, so if you have the accuracy Saint is extremely effective. Furthermore, his ability can revive players with a drone which is hugely effective. He could easily be higher up the Rogue Tier List if there was a better way to finish off kills.
Rogues – C Tier
Rogues that have more negatives than positives, although they can still be effective when mastered.
Unfortunately, Anvils brute force puts him in the bottom tier of our Rogue Tier List. His ability is a barricade, which can come in hand when defending bomb sites, but he struggles with being so visible and in any close vicinities he’ll likely be outgunned unless you’re extremely accurate. He has the biggest hitbox of all Rogues, and therefore he’s often an easy target. Anvil’s passive makes him immune to stuns, which are seldom used and therefore isn’t too useful. The upside of Anvil is his deadly shotgun which can one-tap people when accurate. If you’re looking to hold down just one street, posting up with a barricade and a shotgun can be an effective technique, but he doesn’t come in as one of the best Rogue characters.
Vy can be a nuisance to enemy players and is the best of our Tier C Rogues, although she doesn’t hold a candle to destructive players like Dima. Her ability creates a cloud of poison that deals damage and works in tandem with her passive which allows her to have an additional 25 HP leeched from the health of those caught in her poison. However, the poison is bright green and glaringly obvious, causing no stun to players as they remove themselves from the cloud. It can be very ineffective if not used on multiple players, making her a very ordinary Rogue.
Phantom’s assault rifle is different than any weapon on the game, as it has a scope equipped which you will look down. The ADS and Aiming swing on Phantom is different than any other Rogue, making her quite an unpopular choice. If tamed, she can be very effective, however many struggle to do so. Her ability is neat, casting a cloud of smoke which reduces the visibility of enemies whilst highlighting opponents within it, but these kills are often swept up by aggressive Lancers who will surge through the smoke silently. It is ultimately the unfavourable gun scope of Phantom’s which leaves her stuck in the bottom category of our Rogue Tier List.
This concludes the Rogue Tier List for the best Rogue Company characters.
