For Honor Tier List

Published

on

We showcase our ultimate For Honor Tier List in this article.

To dominate in For Honor you need practice and skill but most importantly, you need to pick the characters that are good at the current meta, which is why this For Honor Tier List is absolutely critical.

There are 29 characters in For Honor with very unique attack patterns and skills.

Our goal for this list is to rank them according to their overall power, to help you understand what are the characters that will help you win the most.

We also take into account the different modes that are in the game, since not all characters are ideal for all the modes.

The most played modes are Brawl, Dominion, and Duel, so we will be focusing on these 3 to keep the list on the point.

Let’s get into it!

 

The Complete For Honor Tier List

 

S-Tier

In this tier, we find the most dominating characters of the game. You will have a great advantage against your opponent if he doesn’t have someone from this Tier.

These characters do great damage and have excellent survivability.

  • Kyoshin (Hybrid)
  • Warlord (Heavy)
  • Warmonger (Vanguard)
  • Conqueror (Heavy)
  • Nobushi (Hybrid)
  • Jiang Jun (Heavy)
  • Shinobi (Assassin)

 

A-Tier

They might not be at the top of this list, but don’t take them lightly for that. The heroes on this tier can win against S-Tier ones without a doubt.

We have seen it happen many times, we have done it many times and unfortunately, it has been done to us at any time. Against some specific match-ups, they might even have the advantage.

Just pick the hero you like from this tier without worrying about it.

  • Hitokiri (Heavy)
  • Shugoki (Heavy)
  • Kensei (Vanguard)
  • Black Prior (Heavy)
  • Shaolin (Hybrid)
  • Nuxia (Assassin)
  • Berserker (Assassin)

 

B-Tier

The characters on this Tier don’t lack so much in power as they lack in good match-ups.

Unfortunately, power is not the most important thing in this game. You need a combination of strong attacks, with good defense and the ability to actually land these attacks on your enemy to dominate the arena.

If you pick these heroes, make sure you are not picking them into a character that is countering you.  For example: don’t pick Highlander into a Berserker, you are going to regret it.

  • Jormungandr (Heavy)
  • Highlander (Hybrid)
  • Raider (Vanguard)
  • Gryphon (Hybrid)
  • Zhanhu (Assassin)
  • Shaman (Assassin)

 

C-Tier

We are starting to reach a point now, that you should consider well if you want to play these characters or not.

Of course, there might be cases where a character from this list will dominate a character higher on this list, but what you will see most commonly is the characters on this Tier losing.

Still, though, they feel very satisfied to play. Orochi is our favorite hero to play but unfortunately, we can’t rank him anywhere higher.

  • Orochi (Assassin)
  • Centurion (Hybrid)
  • Peacekeeper (Assassin)
  • Valkyrie (Hybrid)

 

D-Tier

The most important thing with the heroes on this tier is that you enjoy playing them because you will not find many advantages while doing so.

Their attacks do less damage compared to most of the other heroes and they have to land many more hits to win against most opponents. Be very careful when picking them.

  • Gladiator (Assassin)
  • Warden (Vanguard)
  • Tiandi (Vanguard)

 

LOL-Tier

We have reached the bottom of our list, probably the most important part of it. You should study it and memorize these heroes because you have to actively avoid them.

There is almost no benefit to picking them. So… stay away.

  • Aramusha (Hybrid)
  • Lawbringer (Hybrid)

Now that we’re all done with our For Honor Tier List, let’s dig down with other details and pieces that we should know about For Honor.

 

For Honor Hero Classes

For Honor, warriors are elite soldiers ready for intense battles.

Heroes are assigned a class, and each class has its abilities and key attributes that help them in a match. Each hero plays specialized roles in their respective factions, and all are highly skilled and have their own strengths and weaknesses.

Mastering each hero’s unique fighting styles and move sets will give you an edge for each match.

 

What Are the Character Classes in For Honor?

  • Assassin
  • Heavy
  • Hybrid
  • Vanguard

 

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
  • Warden
  • Tiandi

 

What Are Factions in For Honor?

Factions are groups in For Honor that players can join at the beginning of the game.

At the start of the game, you’ll be asked which faction you’ll pledge allegiance to.
