Honkai Star Rail: Best DPS Characters Ranked

#1. Seele

Seele, DPS character

  • Path: The Hunt
  • Element: Quantum
  • Star: 5*
  • Tier: S

Reason: Seele is the most broken character in the entire Honkai Star Rail universe as of now. She is strong against the characters who are weak against her element. In addition, she is still strong against the ones who are not. Furthermore, she gets an additional move for killing an enemy and you can stack up to 4 moves if you use your ultimate wisely. If paired correctly with support, the duo can carry you through most of the combats.

#2. Clara

  • Path: The Destruction
  • Element: Physical
  • Star: 5*
  • Tier: S

Reason: Clara is quite a tactical character to use in your team composition. This 5* physical character is 2nd on our ranked list for best DPS characters in Honkai Star Rail. Clara needs to be paired with a support that gives her a shield so that she can stay alive in the combats. Furthermore, this will trigger her passive if some enemies attack her and her buddy can counterattack.

#3. Himeko

  • Path: The Erudition
  • Element: Fire
  • Star: 5*
  • Tier: S

Reason: Another 5* character on our list that can easily exploit the elemental weakness of enemies. Her AOE damage makes her one of the strongest DPS characters in this meta. She follows up with an attack whenever her allies trigger enemies’ weakness. Furthermore, her ultimate is strong which can deal damage while recharging her energy. Although, be careful to pick up the correct composition with her to make complete use of her skills.

#4. Sushang

  • Path: The Hunt
  • Element: Physical 
  • Star: 4*
  • Tier: S

Reason: Another tricky character to play on this list is Sushang. Her abilities do have a bit of randomness around them but once you can understand her kit, you are good to go. Sushang attacks all the enemies at the start of the combat and destroying your enemies’ break bar can grant you another move. She excels at single-target combats but holds her ground in multiple-target combats too.

#5. Yanqing

Yanqing, DPS Character, Honkai Star Rail

  • Path: The Hunt
  • Element: Ice
  • Star: 5*
  • Tier: S

Reason: Ranked 5th on the list is Yanqing. This 5* character is really strong against single targets weak to her element. Although, the main reason why he makes it up on our list is because of his passive. Alongside his damage, he has a chance of freezing enemies and this crowd control can give you an edge in combat. He might not be the strongest character right now due to his randomness but he is strong enough to make it to the top 5.
