Jiang Jun is a playable hero class in For Honor.

Overview

Only the most experienced Wu Lin leaders become a Jiang Jun, generals of the Empire. Their loyalty and their sense of righteousness are unmatched. They teach harsh lessons to their enemies while wielding the guandao, the crescent halberd. Revered as the best strategists of the Empire, they are the living embodiment of the art of war. They inspire thousands to fight and die for them in the greatest battles.

Armor

The Jiang Jun wears lamellar armor and a metal cuirass. Much of this armor though is hidden beneath his cloth uniform, leaving mostly his large metal pauldrons, belt, rerebraces, and bracers visible. Accompanying his majestic white beard is a traditional headwear reserved for officials.

Weapon

Guandao - A long wooden polearm with a heavy curved blade at the end. The blade is named after the mythic general.

Known Jiang Jun

  • Guan Yu

Tivia

  • While For Honor's website lists Jiang Jun's weapon as a halberd, it is unmistakably a Guandao and is even labeled as such later on.
    • Guan (關) references Guan Yu and dao (刀) means "blade" or "sword."
    • It is also known as the "yanyeudao" (偃月刀) which translates to "reclining moon blade." This is in reference to the shape of its blade.
  • Jiang Jun (将军) means "General."
  • In promotional art, Jiang Jun is shown using the Safety weapon set instead of his default Sterile weapon set
  • Jiang Jun is inspired by Guan Yu, a legendary Chinese general. His overall design is identical to Guan Yu, with the Jiang Jun backstory featuring an invincible man named Guan Yu.
    • As mentioned above, the Guandao is named after Guan Yu, its name meaning "Guan's blade."
  • The execution "Fei Lian" (飛廉) is named after the dragon deity of the same name, who is known for messing with people by using a bag of wind that he carries around.
