Arknights currently offers over 200 operators for players to choose from. It can be difficult to determine which character belongs to which tier.
Arknights, a mobile tower defense game for free, is set on the future dystopian and post-apocalyptic planet Terra. The planet’s inhabitants have kemonomimi characteristics and animal characteristics.
Originium, a valuable mineral that allows the use of magic called Arts, has been left behind by in-game natural catastrophes. People are also susceptible to Oripathy, a progressive disease. The high mortality rate of 100 percent and the unfriendliness toward the infected made it widespread. The result was a worldwide mass quarantine and expulsion. Tension arose between infected and non-infected.
The role of the amnesiac doctor is taken on by players. They manage a team that operates on Rhodes Island as a medical, self defense, and pharmaceutical organization. The team works together to find a cure for the disease and defend themselves against the Reunion Movement.

How do you get a strong Operator

You can also use the Open Recruitment feature to find a new operator. This allows players to narrow down their options for operators. This increases your chances of getting the character you want. This method however requires Lungmen Coins and Recruitment Tickets.
As a reward for finishing a tutorial mission or story, players can also obtain operators. To indicate that the character is available for recruitment, the mission will display an icon of the operator’s face next to the quest.
You can purchase the Headhunting tickets and Artificial Orginium tickets as well as Recruitment Tickets, Lungment Coins, and Recruitment Tickets at the in game store with the in-game currency. It is important to remember that certain items may require real-life cash to purchase.
