For Honor's Samurai faction features one of the best characters in the game, the Orochi. In this orochi Guide, we'll be breaking down everything you need to know about the Orochi, including all of his move-sets and buttom combos.
The Imperial assassins of the Samurai. They roam the battlefield like ghosts, terrorizing and slaughtering those unfortunate enough to cross their path. Lightly armored and trained in the arts of stealth and deception, the Orochi dispatches enemies with a katana. Usually loyal beyond reproach, the Orochi holds the darker samurai secrets of dealing death in myriad ways, from throwing deadly knives to using a poisoned blade.
Orochi Faction: Part of the Samurai faction.
Orochi Armor: A perfect balance between flexibility and strength, the armor is composed of metal plates that cover most of the body with chain mail underneath. They wear a traditional kabuto, though it lacks any sort of tehen kanamono or decorative crest. Their dull gray mempo is simplistic and covers their mouth and nose with dashes of tan paint that gives the image of teeth.
Orochi Weapon: Katana - The katana is the archetypal single-edge curved sword of the samurai of the Dawn Empire. They are made of laminated steel of the highest quality and are often honored as family heirlooms that warriors pass down to their firstborn.

Orochi's Moves and How-To:
Pull your sword out and a reverse elbow strike will give you enough distance to reverse your sword grip to spin around and take your opponent's head off.
Grip your opponent's collar with one hand as you bring your sword against their throat then pull for a clean slice.
Kneel On Me
Impale your opponent to have them keeling forward so when you pull your sword out you can raise it high and bring it down upon your opponent's head for a nice decapitation.
Choke On This
A swipe of your katana will clear your opponent's hand out of the way so you can thread the blade through their throat.
