Sword Art Online: MD - Best Burst Damagers Tier List (Rank SS-A)


This tier list will show you how good your characters are when it comes to burst damages. Our DPS Tier List can't show you this, that's why we made a different one for Burst Damagers only.

Legends/Guide
Burst General (Overall)
   - Based on their individual overall damage output, SS3 stats, and MP Cost. NO Speed Perks here because burst damagers will heavily focus on spamming their SS3s to deal fast burst damages.
   - Basically, what you want is a high ranked unit with short SS3 duration, nice hits/sec, and high crit rate. Check quick notes too for other details that might help.

Team Building with Burst Damagers
   - Only select your Burst Damagers if you already have your main DPS Core Unit.
   - Please check this guide first to learn what these tier lists are for: Terminologies and Team Building Guide

Default Ranking Sort:
   - Burst General Tier/Rank > Character Name

Important Notes:
   - Please note that these Tier Lists are for reference only, it's a work in progress and will never be final.

Rankings vs Elemental Targets
   - Fire > Wind > Earth > Water > Fire (Holy < > Dark) Characters that are strong vs a particular element will also get a higher damage multiplier, so assume that all units under "Burst General" tab with this advantage will get a higher Rank. Use the Headers to sort the table.
   - The "Burst vs Neutral" tab has been added to easily figure out which units are great against Neutral enemies (a bit tricky to identify, that's why).

Rankings and Preferences
   - For characters that are under the same tier, use their SS3 stats to find the best units that suits your preferences. Also check their other stats and info here: Character Info and DPS Tier List

Other SS3 Stats Info
If you think a stat above isn't accurate due to updates for example, feel free to notify us.
   - SS3 Duration: Timer starts on click or tap, then stops once your character is able to move, so you need to hold and drag anywhere while the SS3 attack animation is active (+/-0.2 sec difference is still OK).
   - SS3 Hits/Sec: Number of Hits/SS3 Duration.

Images Not Loading?
   - We are using lazy load to reduce initial load time, so please scroll down to load needed images first before sorting the table.
   - Medal Scout Characters will get a different image thumbnail.
