The best starting class in Steelrising is the Dancer. The Dancer starts with a good Agility weapon with the Shield special move, enabling you to block damage. Agility increases your weapon scaling with Agility weapons, while Vigor improves your endurance and critical hit multiplier.

The early areas of the game also contain several Agility weapons you can use if the Armoured Fans are not to your liking. This makes the Dancer highly flexible, with multiple weapon options and playstyles available at the start of the game.
