For Honor Tier List

For Honor’s rich cast of characters and their unique toolkit encourage deep experimentation and mastery to win consistently in competitive fights.

Picking the best hero for a specific scenario can be a daunting task if you’re oblivious to the game’s current meta. Fortunately, we’ve made a tier list that ranks the best and worst characters to use in specific game modes.

There five main game modes in For Honor but of these, only three are frequently used by players in competitive matches. Because of this, we will have three separate lists according to each game mode.
