Orochi Samurai Unit Guide



Unit Details

  • Season 16: Sengoku
  • Acquisition: Seasonal Challenges
  • Unlocked Via: Seasonal Unit Challenges
  • Type: Melee Infantry - Polearm
  • Era: Golden Era

Exceptionally deadly and lethal, the Orochi Samurai wade into battle with their trusty weapons. Their blood-red armour is sturdy but equally efficient at instilling fear in the enemy. They stand their ground with a smile against even the fiercest of charges with their fearsome yari spears.

This Unit can use Disrupt to delay enemies from attacking in melee or using Skill Orders, then follow up with Disrupting Sweep to hit multiple enemies. Double Strike doles out two quick attacks in the designated direction. 

Let loose with devastating attacks from atop mighty steeds and turn the tide of battle with this cavalry brigade.
