Warriors, Vikings and Samurais are currently embroiled in an epic battle in the For Honor beta, and if you’re not used to this kind of strategic combat it can be a little tricky to master.
One of the best manoeuvres in For Honor is an execution, allowing you to take down the bad guys with a cinematic and violent move.
This is how you execute:
1. Keep an eye on the health bar. You’ll need to take the health meter of your opponent down to around one or one and a half bars.
2. You need to now time it so you land a heavy attack on the final blow which takes his health bar to zero.
3. You’ll now see the prompts to perform an execution. Press triangle or square (PS4) which triggers two different type of executions.
Each class, Samurai, Warrior and Vikings has two different styles of executions, and they can only be performed on the main bosses, and on fellow players in PvP.
Check back for more guides and videos, which we’ll be uploading following the For Honor beta.We’ll have a video live of an execution shortly.
Hack n’ slash videogame For Honor is due to launch on February 14 on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
