For Honor Warden Double Light Attack

While playing Warden, this needs to be your go-to attack. If you manage to land a successful sideways light attack, you should be guaranteed to land another light attack.

This attack doesn’t consume a whole lot of stamina and has pretty good damage output. However, do note that this attack doesn’t work with overheads and can easily be sidestepped.

For Honor Warden Shoulder Charge

Shoulder Charge can be used both offensively and defensively as it not only allows you to get some breathing room, but also presents opportunities to land combos.

You can check out our ‘Combo Chains and Moves’ section at the end of the guide to learn how to execute this ability. However, do note that ability can be sidestepped by skilled opponents.

For Honor Warden Overhead Counterattack

If you land an overhead light attack at the right time, you should be able to overpower most of the overhead strikes in the game. The attack doesn’t consume a lot of stamina and deals a massive amount of damage.

However, you need to be careful while using this attack against other Warden.

For Honor Warden Counters and Match-Ups

Warden in For Honor is countered by Kensei, Orochi and is strong against Raider.

Warden’s dash is a tad slower as compared to other heroes which is something you need to keep in mind. The hero also doesn’t have good range or mobility which is why he countered by the likes of Kensei/Orochi.

While facing these heroes, you should try to play safe and find openings to deal damage. It goes without saying that these heroes are not impossible to beat in a 1 versus 1 scenario, but are pretty tough.
