Tactics in WAR are abilities that you can buy with the points that you gain for leveling. They provide small gains (typically +5%) in various skills or aspects of your character. You cannot change them when you're in combat. Choosing the current set of active Tactics allows you to specialize your character for an expected situation at hand, for example: Ironbreakers can use Ancestral Hatred which increases damage against Greenskins, while Black Orcs have access to I Hates Stunties which increases damage to Dwarfs.

Before entering into a battle, tactics are chosen and slotted into the Strategy bar according to what you feel will be most useful in the upcoming fight. This gives a little more ability to make your character how you want it to be, and also adds more strategy. It also allows you to have, say, one tactics-load out that is tweaked for performance in solo play, and another that you switch to when you group up to perform a certain task.

Switching tactics load out is done through a simple drop down menu in the UI.

Example tactics include: Blood Up, Fight, Mighty Blow, Eye in the Sky, Seeing Red, Press the Attack, Death Wish, Hard Headed, and Don't Let it Show.

A more complete list can be found at Category: Tactics.

Tactic slots are unlocked as your level increases:
