For Honor 1.15 Update Patch Notes

New Maps

The Gauntlet

A pair of massive stone skulls stand as welcome or warning to those who seek to enter the Viking Fortress. Perched high on a hill, the Fortress is protected by a defensive gauntlet, built by seasoned warriors to stop attackers from reaching their most valued haven.

  • Few have ever made it in the Viking citadel, and none have made it out.
  • Available in all gamemodes except Tribute.

Market Town

Out of tranquil marshland rises a Samurai village, a densely populated maze of twisting alleys and unusual architecture. Here the people live in stilt houses above the water, and the landscape has necessitated a push skyward, creating multi-tiered neighborhoods at varying elevations.

  • Navigating the village is a significant challenge for visitors and invaders alike, but a system of ziplines is sure to expedite travel.
  • Available in all gamemodes except Dominion.

New Gamemode


Two teams of four players fight for the favor of the gods. Each team must gather or steal offerings and bring them back to their shrines to unlock powerful blessings. The first team with three offerings (or the team with the most offerings at the end of the timer) wins.

Tribute is playable in Tower Ruin, Canyon, Shipyard, Cathedral, Cinder Mill, Forest, Viking Village and Market Town.

Improvements since Public Test

When the timer reaches 0:00 (during any phase of the match) the phase will not resolve until the latest interaction with a Shrine is completed or interrupted. The match carries on or finishes according to the result of that interaction.

Drop conditions when carrying an Offering have been refined, they should now be consistent throughout:

  • On PTS, moves and feats that controlled other players would not make the offering drop. They now do.
  • Being in revenge gives you the same immunity super armor gives you pertaining offering drop conditions
  • Renown gain has been rebalanced, players should unlock their 4th feat towards the end of the match if all teammates contributed equally to the game. It was too fast on the Public Test.
  • The damage boost from the “Vindicator’s Blessing” has been reduced to 20% (from 25%) and it does not affect feats anymore.
  • The shield from the Guardian’s Blessing now has accurate regen rules, it will fill back up to 25 health (same amount as Public Test) 9 seconds after the last attack received (blocked or successful). This timer resets every time the character is attacked. The shield can still regen while in combat.
  • Respawn rules have been improved to greatly reduce the chance of players respawning in front of an opponent.

New Features

New patching system

  • In order to significatively reduce the size of all future content updates, the team had to repackage parts of the game data in a more efficient manner. This is why this content update is bigger than our past season content updates. That one time increase only applies to players who currently have version 1.14.1 (our last patch).

 Loading times

  • The optimization included in the new patching system is reducing the map loading times by more than 10% in most cases.

Anti-Run system

  • Players were quickly locking and unlocking when fleeing from enemies, allowing them to run forever without activating the debuff for dishonorable play. Though players could still reach them, it was too easy to simply dodge one attack every time they locked on and time-out the match. So we are slightly increasing the dishonor gauge incrementation to stop the bar from stagnating and allow the runner to receive the debuff as intended. This change has no effect in normal play.

Level 3 Bots

  • Level 3 bots should appear more often during matches based on the skill level of the players in the match.


Out of Stamina State

  • Light Attacks are uninterrupted while the opponent is Out of Stamina.


  • Roll stamina cost increased to 50 (from 40).
  • Roll no longer has defense.


  • Navigation speed tweaks prevent characters from gaining speed while switching between locked and unlocked modes.

Critical HP Regen Removed

  • Critical Health regeneration has been removed in all game modes.

Sprint Attacks

  • Sprint Attacks can acquire target dynamically if they started without one.


  • Dodge and roll can now be used to avoid the effects of Traps and Bombs. Dodging these at the right time will allow the player to avoid all damages.


  • For Honor update 1.15 resolved an issue causing Guardbreak not to connect when both heroes are fighting on certain stairs in “The Forge” and “The Sentinel” maps. This was previously planned to release with 1.14.1 but it could not make it in time, so it is released with 1.15.0.


  • Top Heavy opener range increased to 4.7m (from 4.5m).
  • Top Heavy chain range increased to 3.75m (from 3.5m).
  • Top Heavy chain finisher increased to 4.75m (from 4.5m).

Developer comments: We’re updating the attack range of Lawbringer’s Top Heavy attacks in order to improve range perception. In some cases, it was hard to read if the attack hit or missed.

  • For Honor 1.15 addressed an issue where the Lawbringer could not performs his parry into “Make Away” if his opponent was Out of Stamina, instead of was performing the “Light Riposte”. It is now fixed.


  • Addressed an issue where when the Raider performed the grab in his Light Attack chain against Minions, he was knocked back (bumped) and he did not finish his animation. It is now fixed.
  • For Honor version 1.15 addressed an issue that caused the parry to sometimes not play the animation.


  • Addressed an issue where execution “Punch Drunk” is now properly interrupted by external attacks. This allows a not-yet-executed opponent to be revived by their teammate.
  • Addressed an issue where the Berserker was sometimes bumped back when killing Minions. Minions can still bump other Minions but this prevents a Berserker from being bumped by the very Minions he is killing.
  • For Honor 1.15 addressed an issue where Fixed the weapons of the female Berserker flying out of her hands when recovering from hits, blocks, and stance changes.


  • Addressed an issue where The Kensei can no longer activate Revenge during an Out Of Lock Roll.
  • Addressed an issue where The Kensei can no longer perform “Sprint Attacks” when Out of Stamina while “Iron Lungs” feat is active.


  • For Honor update 1.15 addressed an issue where the Shugoki “Zone Attack” can no longer hit a locked opponent behind him.


  • “Blissful Rest” feat was replaced with “Second Wind” on the Nobushi.


  • Guardbreak input buffer has been increased from Forward Dodge to make it more reliable.


  • Fixed an issue that sometimes cause the parry to not play the animation.
  • Addressed an issue where the Highlander can no longer “Caber Toss” an enemy out of Shugoki’s “Demon Embrace”.


  • Addressed an issue where Heavy opener block recoveries increased to 900ms (from 800ms).
  • For Honor patch 1.15 addressed an issue where Delayed cancel of the “Zone Attack” by 200ms and reduced the trajectory angle.

Faction War Presentation Update


Terminology around the Faction War has been updated to be clearer:



  • War Assets are now Troops
  • Rounds are now Campaigns
  • Turns are referred to as Battle Preparation
  • Territory updates are Battles
  • Tactical view is now War Map

Showing the state of the War

  • Now the Faction War is seen from your Faction point of view.
  • Instead of showing proportional bars of Troops placed by each Faction, we now show the amount of Troops your Faction Leads or Trails by on a specific territory.
  • The 3 territories with the smallest Lead or Trail are emphasised.
  • By selecting a territory, you can see the total amount of Troops deployed by each Faction on that territory. This value updates every minute or so (not in real-time).
  • By selecting a territory, you can also see how many Troops you personally have placed on that territory during Battle Preparation.
  • The crossed swords icon that represents a territory being lost is replaced by new arrows, which point from the winning Faction’s territories to the territory being conquered.

Territory Information

  • Each territory has a unique name.
  • The game now display the icon of each playable map located on that territory.




  • 3D Models of Troops now appear on Territories where the player has deployed them manually.

Faction War Map Updates

  • 9 new Faction War territories have been added to the map, 3 per faction.
  • Moved existing maps to different Faction War territories so the new maps are placed on, or close to, the front.

Faction War Rule Changes

The Faction War schedule has changed:

  • Each Battle Preparation is now 11 hours long instead of 6h. It is now feasible to participate in every Battle Preparation without sacrificing your sleep.
  • Each Campaign is now 31 battles instead of 57 (to keep the length of the Campaign the same as before).
  • Each Season is still 5 Campaigns

Faction War territories start each Campaign with Troops deployed to them.



  • Territories closer to Citadels receive the most troops. Territories on the front receive none.

Territories Troops carry-over

For every territory, 50% of the winning faction’s Troops advantage (winning faction Troops over the runner-up faction’s Troops) are now carried over from Battle to Battle.

  • For example, if you won a territory by having 5000 Troops and your runner-up has 3000 Troops, you will retain a base amount of 2000 Troops, which will then be divided by the 50% modifier. The winning faction will start the next Battle with 1000 Troops.
