Tier can refer generally to content in a video game or more specifically to a special set of endgame armor available from that content level. Normally an endgame set of armor/weapons increases in rarity as they increase in tier.

In DCUO tier refers to the difficulty level of content and strength of equipment from episodes, as measured by combat rating. Once your experience level hits the cap of 30, the vast majority of the game is about raising your combat rating through the tiers by getting better equipment. As of 2022 there are 6 tiers in PvE.

PvP armor has its own system ranging from tier 0 to Tier 5. All armors are available from PvP vendors for Marks of Valor.

Trivia[]

  • Originally there were 10 PvE tiers with the later ones having sub-tiers. PvE content was restructured into 6 tiers in 2021.
  • The Death of Superman is an anomaly. While it lacks an episode number and was released between Deluge and Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (episodes 31 and 32), Tier 5 episodes, The Death of Superman is considered to be Tier 4 in the On Duty menu.
