But still, these characters can be useful to understand for honor for players who are new to the game. There are no bonus characters in this tier because, according to our experience, all C-Tier characters are considered almost to be same.

Centurion

If timed correctly, this character has solid moves that are not penalized by opposing forces. All of this adds up to a good unit with a low-skill cap.

Gladiator

Even when solo-queuing, Gladiator is a good choice. In a one against one situation, its special attacks greatly put pressure on opponents. This character’s damage isn’t to be overlooked in team battles, and if left uncontrolled, it might pose a severe threat to the other team.

Warden

Warden Viking For honor tier list
Warden

This character in the honor tier list hits to set it up; Warden has a powerful shield bash. This character’s narrow range makes him predictable at times, even when it’s strong as it builds speed.

Valkyrie

Valkyrie is a versatile character in this honor tier list that can be used both offensively and defensively. Because her attack is difficult to react to, it’s useful for starting or restarting conflicts. The Valkyrie’s damage output is insufficient to carry solo or team fights. It just does not make a difference if the player does not have a capable team behind.

Orochi

For honor tier list

Tiandi

Tiandi gains additional lives and shields, increasing its survivability. It also includes outstanding dodge animations that allow you to get out of tight situations. Overall, Tiandi is an excellent pick for individuals who wish to stay safe while contributing to team combat.

Aramushu
