List of Arknights unit classes (Jan 2023)

Arknights is a turn-based tower defense game with gacha mechanics. In order to be successful, you’ll need to make your heroes, called agents, as powerful as possible. Arguably the most important upgrades are special items called player units. They improve character stats, but with the caveat that modules are created for specific customers, and no one else can use them. Look at our list of Arknights Module Tiers to make the right choice.
