Tier List

Table of Contents


This tier list is meant to assist people when it comes to picking Sinners that might helpful for them to progress. It will be frequently updated with new additions every so often, with Identities possibly moving up and down the list depending on new updates and other factors.

It should not be taken as gospel, however. There are many distinct and unique battles in Limbus and it would be near-impossible to cover all the niche situations and combinations, especially when factoring things like Refraction Railway. What we will be focusing on here is reliability in general, how well they can slot into a team, and of course, how strong they are. This should give you a general idea on how well these Identities work for the most part.

Note: This tier list only considers Identities on the field, and does not include the effectiveness of Support Passives.

Tier List Table

In no particular order. Sinners are arranged simply by their Sinner numbers, and all related Identities are placed right next to each other.

  • Very tanky
  • Inflicts good Sinking
  • Perfectly fuels Rime Shank for Sinking teams

The Pequod Harpooneer Heathcliff

  • 1 Stagger threshold early, makes him a great tank

  • Sinking Deluge is his main gimmick, being a nuke but for Sinking that spends all Sinking on an enemy

R Corp. 4th Pack Reindeer Ishmael

  • Decent in Uptie 3 but really wants Uptie 4 to shine because of how significant the changes in her Skills and passives are

  • Meh Sinking application
  • Powerful skills when at higher Insight
  • Can keep himself at Insight 3 forever by discarding Skill 3 once and then having the bottom slot turn into an Evade

  • Healing is bad for her as a result

Lobotomy E.G.O::Magic Bullet Outis

  • Great AoE potential

  • Decently powerful skills, if a bit lacking in coins

Molar Office Fixer Outis

Edgar Family Heir Gregor

  • Glass cannon as he gives himself damage up but also Fragile

  • Skill 3 eats up a lot of Sinking Count and Potency, 50% chance that he dooesn't absorb Sinking Potency to give himself Plus Coin Boost


Blade Lineage Salsu Faust

  • Decently powerful skillls but works best in a Poise/Blade Lineage team
  • Red Plum Blossom seems like a good Bleed inflictor but is notorious for being very difficult to have an upkeep on

  • Meh clashing capabilities
  • Slow Speed
  • Inflicts a lot of Tremor and Rupture
  • Is one of the few IDs that can Burst Tremor without lowering Count
  • When the stars align and she goes first with her Skill 3 active, she can inflict 5 Fragile, which is way more than R Corp Heathcliff's 4 Fragile. Ideally you can pair them up both for this, even.

Rosespanner Workshop Rep. Rodion

  • Charge ID that focuses around Tremor
  • Tremor infliction is actually poor and should not be focused on unless in a Tremor team

G Corp. Head Manager Outis

  • Good support for the team all around
  • Does not inflict good damage on her own as she only has single coin skills

  • Decent tank ID, pairs very well with Zwei Gregor

Wuthering Heights Butler Faust

  • Meh clash numbers, needs a Sinking team to become more worth it

  • Potentially powerful but needs a lot of babysitting to make work
  • Needs to get hit with Sinking on himand/or lose a clash with his Skill 1 to lose SP

  • Can barely get and maintain poise, making it difficult to activate skill effects

  • Has severe difficulty with getting the conditionals on his skills active when not in a Rupture team
