South Park: The Fractured but Whole Best Classes

Blaster
The Blaster class is a ranged damaged dealer. You have the option of attacking from both close and long ranges. I would suggest that you opt for long range by staying in the backlines and away from the action.

This way you will be safer and will still deal a large amount of damage. Some of your attacks are also able to deal damage over time so it is best if you stay alive for as long as you can and deal as much damage as possible in that time.

The main problem that the Blaster will run into is that they can often end up blocking a lot of their teammates if they are trying to heal someone or themselves use ranged attacks, so make sure that you position yourself well to avoid running into problems.

Brutalist
The Brutalist is sort of like the Blaster, as in they deal a huge amount of damage, but they lack the range and can only attack enemies at close ranges.

They hit very, very hard and are more effective at attacking than any other starting class, but they need to get up close to actually deal damage. They also have the option of doing attacks that deal damage of time like the Blasters do, but positioning with the Brutalists is far more important as it can be the difference between victory and defeat.

You might be able to take out enemies, but you will also be the first one to get hit. The Brutalists are best for players who are able to position themselves to avoid enemy attacks.

Speedster

The main selling point of the speedsters is that they can attack really fast, however, they also lack the range that is so useful as a blaster. This means that while you will be able to take out an enemy quite fast, your attacks will, for the most part, be focused on a single enemy.

You also have the ability to sacrifice your next turn in exchange for having two attacks this round, this is perfect if you want to finish off an enemy before they have a chance to heal.

Speedsters work well for players if they have a good sense of positioning and are able to avoid big damage attacks from opponents.
