For Honor: Weapons

by Gina Lees

Ubisoft have announced that weapons and armour will be customisable. Although you will wield the same weapon per hero for the whole game, you will be able to vastly adapt and evolve your weapon, by making it more powerful and changing its appearance. As you gain experience, a weapon and armour upgrade is inevitable, so take a look at the list of weapons available below.

For Honor Knights:

The Warden

A two-handed Longsword used by the For Honor Warden. A versatile weapon, which offers a balance of offence and defence, They are signature Knight weaponry and are one of the easiest For Honor weapons to master.

The Conqueror

The For Honor Raider’s weapon of choice is the Footman’s Flail. One of the most vicious and deadly weapons available, it is a huge steel-spiked ball, linking to a heavy wooden handle and dangling from a iron chain. The best weapon to concuss enemies.

For Honor Samurais:

The Kensei

The Kensei’s weapon of choice if the classic Nodachi. This is a longer, slender version of The Orochi’s Katana. Initially designed for horseback, due to it’s unwieldy length, The Kensei has spent years mastering the weapon and now have the skills to use this in battle. It’s ideal for long lunge attacks and creeping up on enemies.
