Buster Looping Tier List

This guide will cover the basics of Buster Looping and organize the Buster Loopers into tiers by Wave 3 Damage potential. Most Buster Loop setups require 2 Koyanskaya of Lights and an Oberon to work.

In all situations, any non-charging skill with a 3-turn buff should be cast as soon as it is available. A 1-turn buff with longer than a 6-turn cooldown is assumed to be cast turn 3, and equal or less than turn 1.

Buster Looping Tier List

Any Servant on this list is capable of looping against all nodes regardless of enemy composition and can cast a Buster-type Noble Phantasm all three turns. All Servants are assumed NP1 unless they are 3-star and below, or a welfare Servant. Damage calculations are done against class advantage at x2; with Berserkers, Alter Egos, and Pretenders calculated at x1.5; and Rulers, Moon Cancers, Avengers, and Foreigners at x1. ST Servants are classified based off of damage potential compared to AoE Servants of the same class.
