What is an Assassin in For Honor?

Assassins are swift and lethal in their attacks. Their attacks are strong, and they move fast, giving them excellent offensive moves, but they lack defensive skills compared to other classes. So, when playing an Assassin, you should use their agility to avoid attacks or use their signature deflect move to create an opening.

Who are the Assassins in For Honor?
  • Shinobi
  • Nuxia
  • Berserker
  • Zhanhu
  • Shaman
  • Orochi
  • Peacekeeper
  • Gladiator

What is a Heavy in For Honor?

Heavies are easily to identify because of their muscular build or a big tool for defense that they carry around. They’re the most resilient to damage among all classes; some of them also give significant damage to opponents with just a single hit. However, they’re not as fast as other types and are best used to resist incoming attacks while waiting for an opening to strike slow but powerful blows.

Who are the HEAVIES in For Honor?
  • Hitokiri
  • Shugoki
  • Warlord
  • Jormungandr
  • Conqueror
  • Jiang Jun
  • Black Prior

What is a Hybrid in For Honor?

Each Hybrid’s a mixture between two of the other three classes of Heroes, and as a result, no Hybrids are alike. Given these, their strengths are not as straightforward as other classes so, it’s best to individually understand the strengths and weaknesses of each Hybrid Hero. They’re also harder to play because of their uncommon mechanics, but they are lethal in the hands of the player who mastered them.

Who are the HYBRIDS in For Honor?
  • Kyoshin
  • Nobushi
  • Shaolin
  • Highlander
  • Gryphon
  • Centurion
  • Valkyrie
  • Aramusha
  • Lawbringer

What is a Vanguard in For Honor?

Vanguards are a jack-of-all-trades. They’re well-balanced warriors with good attack and defense capabilities. Though, of course, they’re not as tanky as the Heavies or as fast as the Assassins, their versatile traits give them a good shot against the more specialized Hero classes. To add, when they’re with allies, they can fulfill many roles from offensive to defensive when the time calls for them to adapt. And because of these, it made them easy to play or beginner-friendly.

Who are the VANGUARDS in For Honor?
  • Warmonger
  • Kensei
  • Raider
