The Heavy Knight

{{{image_size}}}
General Info
Introduced in Beta 1.0
Health: 125
Armor: 215
Speed: 190
Damage required for special: 260

Like a medieval version of a tank, these elite troops are capable of withstanding a tremendous amount of damage and can dish out almost the same.


Overview

The Masters of Melee. As the name implies, these Knights are Heavy and that guarantees they won't be easy to kill in a melee fight. Although Heavy Knights are the slowest warriors in the game, they can withstand the most damage because of their finely-crafted armor and above-average health.

With their long Two-Handed Sword, they can cause the most immense amounts of damage. While they dominate in melee, Heavy Knights possess no ranged weapons, but can those ranged weapons pierce their almighty shields? We think not.

Heavy Knight's main weapon, and the strongest one around. It's very long, so those itty-bitty enemies will have a hard time getting past it. It has some drawbacks though, such as its slow swing and charge speeds.

Not often used for fighting due to the low damage and range; it swings and charges at a respectable speed. You can bash and counter attack, which can be effective if you practice, but the main purpose of this weapon is to block kegs and ranged weapons. If you are dying, you can always take your shield out and hope help arrives, or bash people with it for fun.

Special attack: Blade Spin

It only works with the player holding the two-handed sword

When your special meter is full, press the special button to spin 360°. Watch out though, anyone not caught in the spin will clobber you while you're winding down.

Trivia

  • The class is loosely based on the Black Knight (a character from the British comedy film Monty Python and the Holy Grail) performed by John Cleese; ironically enough the character cannot be dismembered as of Beta 3.1 update.
  • A flail was planned to be part of Heavy Knight's arsenal, like his PVK1 counterpart, but the weapon was scrapped during development of the original release and it was replaced by a crossbow. The crossbow was later removed from the Heavy Knight's arsenal by the time the Archer was introduced in PVKII, in the Beta 2.0 update.
  • The mod's Steam store page's banner uses Heavy Knight's old profile picture from the wiki instead of the newer one.
