The Hybrid is one of four playable types of Heroes in For Honor. They can be recognized by the polearms they carry, while their characteristics and elements are a mixture of each of the other three types of Heroes (the Assassins, the Heavies and the Vanguards). They may be a harder to understand and learn to play due to their uncommon mechanics, but they are lethal in the hands of the player who takes the time to master them.
The Hybrid heroes in For Honor are:
- The Lawbringer have in hand the poleaxe, a weapon that is versatile in that it can slice, bash and stab with designated parts of its construction. These knights are sturdy with heavy armor while exceling in counter-attacking, keeping their foe off-balance. When not in the focus of battle, the capability to capture zones and revive allies is in their hands.
- The Valkyrie, chosen of the gods, are as versatile as they are complex. With a spear in one hand and a shield in the other, the combination of both gives way to combo attacks, with some surprises in the mix as an attack can come from either. They are also capable at pressing enemies back and stalling their advances.
- The Nobushi wield the naginata, a polearm with a curved blade at the end. Adept at zoning, once their techniques are realized and mastered, they can pester their foes with harassing attacks. Their attack range, which is the highest of all Heroes, allows them to hit those who even attempt to dodge to the side.
