Raider - How to Fight Against Each Hero In For Honor?2019-06-12 16:43:28
Fighting with heavy two-handed axes, Raiders are always found at the forefront of the Viking horde, hacking through enemies crazy enough to stand in their way. They are clad in leather and iron rings, with their bodies covered by tattoos – souvenirs from past battles, which they bear proudly. These relentless warriors embody the Viking ideals: boundless bravery, spotless integrity, and unbridled passion.
Wielding a great axe, Raider is a hero characteristic for his sluggish strong hits, which at the same time are the most powerful from the ones found in game. Raider is perfect for exercising pressure and simple damage dealing. He works well on short distances, employing his lighting fast quick attacks, and is able to close the distance using strong attacks - these hits are slow, yet have a long reach and often enable you to hit an enemy that seemed to be out of your range.
How to Fight Against Raider In For Honor?
Take extra care to recognize and avoid them - some of his combinations are powerful enough to kill weaker heroes on the spot. You'll be seeing a lot of them on the battlefield - get used to shoves and offensive-oriented approach.
There are three moves that require extra attention.
- First move is the shove that is a part of either the Stampede Charge, or the Raider's Guardbreak. The move enables Raider to catch an enemy, shove him through the battlefield, and throw him off balance (this gives him an opportunity to deal one "safe" hit). If the shove ended on an obstacle, the victim will be stunned, severely limiting his ability to see the incoming attacks.
- Secondly, beware of Stunning Tap. Raider is mainly useful as a stunner - he has a set of such abilities at your disposal. Aside from minor damage, this attack ends with a Stun - for a few seconds, your vision and hearing will be obscured, severely handicapping your ability to defend yourself or engage your opponent. In such case, simply disengage your enemy and wait for the effect to pass - the removed direction markers make blocking or parrying much tougher.
- Finally, there is the Ranger's Zone Attack, which is unblockable. To counter this move, wait for the moment your opponent turns orange (and a small icon appears) and either lead with a light attack to interrupt the casting, or simply Dash outside of its range. Raider's biggest advantages - fast light attacks and long reach strong attacks - are also his biggest downsides.
