Most of us are familiar with the power of UR legendary heroes in Last War Survival Game. But what about those Epic and Rare ones? In this guide, we will rank and discuss the top Epic (SSR) and Rare (SR) heroes that might surprise you with their skills and utility in the game. And yes, for competitive gameplay, SSR heroes may not perform as well as the UR ones, but as we showcased in the video below, you will be amazed at how effective some of these Epic heroes can be (at least in the early to mid-game battles).

As always, in the S tier, you will find the best heroes, and in the C tier, the ones with the weakest skills and base stats. Let’s dive into our tier list and discover which Epic and Rare heroes are worth investing in for your ultimate zombie-slaying squad!

As you will see in this video, Mason is undoubtedly one of the best tank-type damage dealers in Last War Survival, overperforming UR heroes like Kimberly and Murphy. Now, I must say that he had a significant advantage over the two mentioned UR heroes as we increased his star rating to 2.5, upgraded his skills, and was also better equipped. Nevertheless, he is still a solid pick for new and mid-game players, as he can boost the damage of back-row tank-type heroes against monsters with his second skill.

Next, let’s take a look at some other notable SSR heroes that fall into the A to B tiers. Tap “More info” to see how we ranked them for PvP, PvE, and Stage battles.

The next heroes are kind of useless. We do not recommend spending Hero XP on them as you will soon get better characters.

Last War Survival Game SSR Hero Summaries

Below is a summary of the top SSR heroes and what makes them so special.

Mason

Mason
  • Rank: S
  • Role: Attack
  • Units: Tank

Mason is absolutely one of the top-tier SSR heroes in Last War Survival game. His incredible damage and powerful AoE attacks make him stand out among even some legendary heroes. Plus, his second skill greatly boosts back-row tank-type heroes against monsters, making him a must-have for any PvE team.

Monica

Monica
  • Rank: S
  • Role: Support
  • Units: Tank

If you’re looking for a unique SSR hero to add to your team in Last War Survival Game, Monica is the one to consider. She not only provides a valuable resource boost for your entire team after defeating regular world map zombies, but she also offers strong damage-dealing skills against them. With a 5-star upgrade, she becomes even more powerful. She helped us easily clear stages 80-94 when we replaced Farhad with her on our team.

Maxwell

Maxwell
  • Rank: S
  • Role: Attack
  • Units: Aircraft

Maxwell may not have the flashiest skills, but don’t underestimate his ability to deal some serious damage. As an aircraft-type hero, he excels in taking down single targets with his powerful attacks. Plus, his third skill can stun and deal extra damage to a target, quite a versatile character if you ask me!

Elsa

Elsa hero in Last War Survival Game
  • Rank: S
  • Role: Tank
  • Units: Missile Vehicle

Elsa is an interesting (and unique) choice for a defense hero in Last War Survival. Why? Because she has a combination of strong attack power, the ability to slow down enemies, and great survivability thanks to her second skill that reduces damage taken from zombies. On top of that, her third skill also helps protect the front-line units by reducing damage taken – which is essential in keeping vulnerable but powerful heroes like Stetmann safe.

Richard

Richard hero in Last War Survival
  • Rank: S
  • Role: Attack
  • Units: Tank

You can’t go wrong with Richard as he’s a strong attacker with great damage. His skills focus on dealing damage and boosting his attack, making him a solid choice for any battle, but most of all for PvP combat. He’ll surely be useful on your squad during PvE missions or when attacking other players’ bases.
