The central focus of For Honor is its complicated but rewarding combat system. If you want to be a true master, one of the most important moves you'll need to learn is throwing. Here's how to do it.
For Honor Open Beta: How to throw
Throwing in For Honor isn't what you normally think of when you read that word — it's more of a forceful shove. Think of it like throwing someone off balance rather than actually heaving them over your shoulder.
To perform a throw, you'll have to break their guard. First, hold L2, then hit square on PS4 or X on Xbox One. Then, hit that same button again to perform a throw.

You can also just use throw to catch your opponent off-guard and shove them into a wall for some bonus damage — whatever works for you.
