S-Tier characters in For Honor

Conqueror

He has got a Footman’s Flail & Heater Shield. He has got a tremendous character enough to blow away his enemies in the battlefield and he is a nothing short of a nightmare for enemies.

This character, the Conqueror, is rock solid strong and has the capability to block any kind of incoming attacks. The damage on each hit is mind blowing and inflicts a ton of damage.

The Flail is bit tricky to learn though. But once you have mastered it then you can blow away the enemy on each hit.

  • Warmonger

Warmonger has this classic Claw & Light Attacks which are known for inflicting a lot of damage at a very fast rate.

Warmonger has got this killing weapon called the Flamberge Sword. It is a two-handed weapon and is heavy and large. You hit your enemy with it and the enemy can be destroyed.

  • Jiang Jun

This character is excellent in crowd control. The primary weapon of Jun is a Guandao and is known for powerful sweep attacks. It is also capable of fast poking attacks.

The stance of Jun is well known and helps him in defending himself.

  • Nobushi

Nobushi is one of the most unique character for it can not only maintain distance from his enemies but strike hard.

The primary weapon of Nobushi is the Naginata. It is a beautiful weapon and is essentially a long Scythe attached to a Spear. Nobushi can cause bleeding damage to his opponents and causes the bleed debuff. This debuff can cause a lot of damage even if you are not striking your opponent consistently.

  • Warlord

It is known as the best solo hero. And also, it can fight duels in best possible ways. He has a great defensive stance and can dodge and parry or deflect offensives. Not only defense, but also his attack is a ton of damage to the enemy.

He is an up close fighter and his attacks are high speed ones. He is simply the quickest heroes in the game as his attacks are short and fast.

A-Tier Characters in For Honor

  1. Shaolin

It is difficult to predict the Shaolin. He is a silent killer. He has got a long staff and that staff helps you maintain distance from his enemies. For every successful block he regenerates health.

He can teleport too. This ability to teleport can have the opponent baffled. He can quickly teleport after a hit and then hit again from behind.

  • Nuxia

If you are looking for the deadliest assassin in the game then it is none other than her – Nuxia. She attacks really fast and multiple times with her twin hooked swords. She can even draw her enemies closer to her with the swords.

She has got traps and they too deal a heck of a damage. If the enemies are too much defensive, then they are gone.

  • Berserker

Close combat and Berserker are for each other. He is easily the best close combat character in the game. You can chin run his attacks and there is no stopping. He can put in a lot of pressure on the opponents.

By playing this hero you can get your stats right for his speed, attack and defensive.

  • Kensei

Kensei fights with his Nodachi and they are up and running for a fight. The only downside of this character is that it is a bit slow. However, this charactercan give mighty blows and one of its capabilities are that the damage dealt with other players can become more than usual.

  • Black Prior

This character fights well and defensive tendency makes him all the more useful. He can take a lot of offensive and ca break any offensive into bits and pieces, stunning enemies with his shield.

  • Hitokiri

This character is merciless. He fights with a battle Axe called Masakari is one of the mightiest weapons in the entire game and causes a lot of damage to its opponents. The damage done by this Axe can be lethal to the opponents.

Although he is not a very crowd manger but on one on one he is very potent and can fight in quick succession.

B-Tier Characters in For Honor

  1. Gryphon

This character was in S-Tier, however, this character has now moved to B-Tier. He fights with his Bardiche which is a long polearm with a strong blade attached on the top of it. It can go for a brutal finish besides heavy attacks and sweeps.

There has been some updates which makes his moves not that great after that path pushing him on to B-Tier.

  • Highlander

This character- Highlander fights with a claymore and is a heavy and long sword. Again, this character is also good at dealing a ton of damage.

But the weight of sword forces him to take his own time to land a successful attack. Because he takes a bit of time therefore, he can be easily deflected, blocked or counter attacked.

  • Raider

It is a good and agile Viking hero. He is agile and because of its simple play style it doesn’t take too much of a time to master his moves. It is highly aggressive on its style of play, however, its moves can be countered. That is what you have to be careful about.

  • Shaman

She is a stable character and fights with a dagger and a Hatchet. Her moves are quite fast but the problem is that she doesn’t have much HP. That is why she can be taken down easily. If you are playing with this character then you got to be careful that you don’t take too many shots rather play with agility and speed with one of her abilities to boost it further.

  • Shugoki

This hero is a large and bulky one. This hero is one of the slowest of the heroes and can do less in a middle of an attack. But his blows are strong and if you are not countered easily then you can deal a heavy damage to your opponents.

  • Zhanhu

This hero fights with his Changdao Sword and his quite quick. However, his blows are not that strong and he needs to hit many times before the enemy falls down. It is quite like hit and run and then hit again always on the move tactics that you must employ with this character.

C-Tier Characters in Fr Honor

  1. Valkyrie

She fights with a Spear and a Shield. She is good at aggression and defensive both with her Spear and Shield but is slightly slower when compared to other characters and that is a disadvantage you have to be bothered about.

  • Orochi

Orochi is the fastest player in the game and he is quick to move across the maps significantly faster. The attacks are also quite quick and has great deflection capabilities. His deflections capabilities are what makes it a nice character. However, both his attack and defensives are a bit weaker.

  • Peacekeeper

This character was once very strong but now she is a sure defeat.

She is quick at attacks and deals a decent damage to opponents however, she has got poor range, less health and other terrible abilities make her one of the weakest characters in the game overall.

  • Centurion

This hero is slightly better and his moves are fast and deal a good damage, but the range is small for this hero and he has to stay closer to his enemies which doesn’t help him much and he cannot mount too much of a pressure on his enemies.

  • Jormungandr

This C-Tier character is slow moving but has got a Warhammer and if properly played can inflict a ton of damage on heavy attacks and stuns on light attacks.

But what this hero playable is his defensive capabilities and also he can help other teammates by providing health, shield and reduction in damage buffs.

  • Shinobi

This character is also a very weak character. But once he was this dependable and best of the lot character. He doesn’t have much buffs to his aid and is a low health and poor defensive character in the game. He depends mostly on hit and run tactics and the worse problem that his damage is also quite low.

D-Tier Characters in For Honor

  1.   Gladiator

This fights with a Trident and is good on one-on-one fights. He can inflict a lot of pressure on his opponents he can be useful in ranged combats.

The reason he is in this tier is that that his Damage is kind of poor. He must chain his attacks or else he is going to be put out of the battlefield. Besides the above factor another issue is that it takes a lot of effort to learn playing this character. And his attack animations are also quite slow.

  • Tiandi

For beginners Tiandi’s extra live passive, together with extra shield makes it quite a good character. He does not have a ton of damage and his mobility isn’t that much as well. But he can concuss his enemies.

  • Warden

Warden is a hero with whom you can start with as a beginner and there is not much to him. He is bulky and slow, and his attack animations are lengthy too. The lengthy animations are the ones which can easily blocked and the counter attacked for.

F-Tier Characters in For Honor

  1. Aramusha

Aramusha is also having same issues of slow speed and lengthy animations and it gets quite boring to play with this character even if you are playing with him for short durations.

Leaning Aramusha’s moves can be lengthy and tough. This hero is a high difficulty hero, and the rewards aren’t that many.

  • Lawbringer

This guy fights with a Poleaxe and gives him a quite a range but the damage it deals with it is low and by far it is one of the worst picks in the game. Besides that his mobility isn’t great as well.

Conclusion

So that was it. The best first list of heroes in For Honor. Hope this updated list of characters helps you in choosing the winning combination for you. If you like our post, then come back for more updated stuff in this space.
