Best Heroes in For Honor

Conqueror Build


Meet the Footman’s Flail and Heater Shield combo – a go-to for the tough Iron Legion infantry. Picture this: a hefty iron flail featuring chains connected to a sturdy wooden handle, ending with a huge steel-spiked ball. This bad boy doesn’t mess around – it deals devastating blows, crushing armor and bones alike with its concussive force. And in the other hand? The trusty Heater Shield, pulled double-duty for both offense and defense. It’s a heavy-hitting duo that spells trouble for any opposition.


Your standard Conqueror rocks an Enclosed Helm, steel spaulders, and a set of poleyns. Clad in a leather jerkin with exposed plating, sporting a stylish cloth scapular. To complete the look, their forearms are wrapped in steel chains and manacles. It’s the classic Conqueror ensemble, ready for action.

  • Faction(s): Knights
  • Hero Type: Heavies
  • Health: 140
  • Stamina: 120
  • Sprint Speed: 6.0 m/s

Jiang Jun Build


Guandao – A long wooden polearm with a heavy curved blade at the end. The blade is named after the mythic general.


The Jiang Jun wears lamellar armor and a metal cuirass. Much of this armor though is hidden beneath his cloth uniform, leaving mostly his large metal pauldrons, belt, rerebraces, and bracers visible. Accompanying his majestic white beard is a traditional headwear reserved for officials.

  • Faction(s): Wu Lin
  • Hero Type: Heavy
  • Health: 140
  • Stamina: 120
  • Sprint Speed: 6.25 m/s

Kyoshin Build


Shikomizue Blade and Scabbard – A single-handed sword that is concealed within an undecorated scabbard. Due to its straight edge, the concealed weapon can deceivingly look like a harmless stick until it is drawn. The Kyoshin use this blade both in the overhand and underhand grip.


The Kyoshin are masters of disguise, dressing as either other warriors or as civilians. Their main attire is the robes of the Samurai high class. This attire is the kamishimo ensemble, which includes a kimono top, the kataginu jacket, and hakama pants. To hide their supernatural eye, they wear a partial blindfold. For protection, they wear metal shoulder plates and forearm guards.

  • Faction(s): Samurai
  • Hero Type: Hybrid
  • Health: 120
  • Stamina: 120
  • Sprint Speed: 7.5 m/s

Nobushi Build


Naginata – The naginata is a long weapon consisting of a wooden shaft topped with a curved blade, with a round handguard (tsuba) between the blade and shaft. It is an extremely versatile weapon in the hands of a trained warrior and can be used to stab, bash, or hook enemies.


The nobushi appears to be mostly wearing leather and cloth with a gray knee-length jinbaori (Samurai coat) on top. They possess two small sode, Japanese shoulder protectors, on their shoulders.

They wear a mouthless noh mask and an amigasa hat.

  • Faction(s): Samurai
  • Hero Type: Hybrid
  • Health: 120
  • Stamina: 120
  • Sprint Speed: 7 m/s

Shinobi Build


Kusarigama – The traditional Japanese weapon consists of a kama (Japanese sickle) with a chain-and-weight attached. It is brutal in close quarters but can also be thrown and retracted for medium-distance attacks.


The shinobi takes on the image of the ninja in pop culture, clad in dark shinobi shōzoku with ropes, bombs, and a kaginawa grappling hook hanging from their belt, with a Sanjaku-tenugui covering their face. Leather armor cover parts of the body, but most determinately the arms, upper chest and shoulders.

  • Faction(s): Samurai
  • Hero Type: Assassin
  • Health: 120
  • Stamina: 135
  • Sprint Speed: 7.5 m/s, 8.5 m/s (Super Sprint)

Warmonger Build


Flamberge Sword – A two-handed sword with an elegant blade. Its name comes from how the blade itself is wavy like a flame. Although slightly longer than the Warden’s Longsword, the Warmongers wield this hefty weapon in one hand with ease.


To become a Warmonger, one must abandon their former identity, so that they can be “reborn” as one with the Order of Horkos. Their transformation is materialized through the forging of their blade and armor. Most of the Warmongers use materials from their past gear to reforge a new armor. Some take the gear from their greatest enemy (as the great Apollyon once did) and adjust it to their needs. All of their armor are also imbued with the power of the “Sacred Stone of Horkos,” known as Draconite, that helps them spread the Corruption on the battlefield.

  • Faction(s): Knights
  • Hero Type: Vanguard
  • Health: 130
  • Stamina: 130
  • Sprint Speed: 7 m/s

  • T0: This is the highest tier in a tier list, reserved for the most powerful or effective options in the game. Heroes or strategies in this tier are considered to be essential picks for competitive play and are often banned in tournaments.
  • T1: This tier is just below T0-tier and includes heroes or strategies that are still very strong and effective, but not quite as dominant as those in the T0-tier.
  • T2: This tier includes Heroes or strategies that are considered to be average or balanced in terms of their strength and effectiveness. They may have some strengths and weaknesses, but they are not as dominant as those in the higher tiers.
  • T3: This is the lowest tier in a tier list, reserved for the weakest or least effective options in the game. Heroes or strategies in this tier are often considered to be inferior to other options and may be rarely used in competitive play.
