DJ Alok has a unique active ability called Drop The Beat, creating a 5m aura that increases the ally movement speed by 10% and restores 5 HP/s for 5 seconds.

It is most suitable for aggressive players and can be maxed out with character level up cards up to level 6. The highest level provides an ability to increase the ally movement speed by 15% and restores the HP by 5HP/s for 10 seconds.

Hayato Firebrand, the Awakened version of Hayato, possesses an active ability called the Art of Blades. It helps reduce frontal damage by 20% for 3 seconds and has a cooldown of 50 seconds.

However, this version should be unlocked, as it doesn't get opened with Hayato's default character.

Conclusion: Who is a better character for Ranked mode?

Both Hayato and Alok have exceptional abilities, making them top picks. Even though the former's default form, Bushido, has a passive skill, the Firebrand version has an active capacity. But it doesn't have a lot of effect on the strategic outcome.


DJ Alok has a versatile skill set offering enhanced speed along with a constant healing source. This particular skill set is very beneficial for players during intense fights in ranked matches. Hayato Firebrand has only a defensive ability.

Hence, DJ Alok is always a better choice in terms of viability and versatility.
