The Heavy is one of four playable types of Heroes in For Honor. Aside from their robust build, they are easily identified for having a large shield and/or a heavy blunt weapon of some sort. With high resistance that grants them the highest raw survivability compared the other three types of Heroes (the Hybrids, the Assassins, and the Vanguards), they are typically tasked with working with the team to hold positions until reinforcements arrive. However, the Heavies must be patient, relying on their defensive abilities to hold off attack and wait for their opportunity to strike.
Slower tanks have higher damage and are great at holding control points while the faster ones may not have the damage but their suitability gives them the ability to disrupt enemies and assist allies.
The Heavy heroes in For Honor are:
- The Conqueror wield their flail with brutality as they can strike with heavy attacks. Even when on the defensive, they can use their shields to assault their foes. When surrounded they can resort to their defense mode and survive.
- The Warlord trade a bit of their offense to be faster than the other Heavies and still just as hard to kill. With sword and shield, they are capable of harassing and countering-attacking when they've properly waited out. Even while attacking, they keep themselves protected from that angle.
- The Shugoki are the slowest among the Heavies in both attack and movement, but with their Kanabo, they have the most devastating attacks to impart upon their foes. On top of having the highest health, their stance is literally uninterruptible, which paired with their destructive abilities makes a fight against them long and one no one should let their guard down so easily during.
