Learn combos, advanced tactics for each game mode and more as we continue to add new content every week.

For Honor Tips

  • Communication is key to win in the team-based multiplayer modes.
  • Try to force 2v1 and 3v1 situations, going into areas controlled by the other team with multiple members of your team to ambush them.
  • To defend against multiple enemies, target one enemy and simply block in the direction of the secondary enemy to block all of their attacks.
  • Pay close attention to the B zone because it’s very easy to take control of it and more players will ignore this area while they focus on zones A and C.
  • If you’re outnumbered, run away and find your teammates to avoid dying. It’s better to run rather than die and have to wait for the respawn timer.
  • If your team is Breaking it’s very important to stay together because if you die you will not be able to respawn.
  • Watch your surroundings and keep your back away from environmental hazards to avoid quick deaths.
  • Execute opponents to prevent them from being revived and lengthen their respawn time.
  • Parry attacks by attacking with a well-timed Heavy Attack at the same direction as your opponent’s attack.
