AW Defender Tactics (Season 31)
You cannot choose from all Defense or Attacker Tactics
Expert Tier (Tier 1 and Tier 2):
- Defense Tactic: High Ground – 2 (The only tactic you can use)
- Attacker Tactic: Power Down (Only tactic attackers can select)
Challenger Tier (Tier 3 to Tier 5):
- Defense Tactics: Can choose one from 3: Untouchable 2, High Ground, and Unstoppable Armor – 2.
- Attacker Tactics: Can select one out of 3: Slow Your Roll, Damage Over Time, and Power Down.
Hard Tier (Tier 6 to Tier 9):
- No Defense Tactic for Hard Tier
- Attacker Tactic: Can select one out of 3: Slow Your Roll, Damage Over Time, and Power Down.
In Shot, Expert Tier will have pre-defined tactics and there won’t be an option for selection. This will change every season.
Challenger Tier can select one out of 3 available options. Hard Tier can do the same, but for attacker tactics only as they won’t have any defender tactics available to use.
