We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Taunt is a purchasable ability available to all heroes. When used, you Taunt a selected enemy hero, marking that hero for up to 30 seconds. Taunt can be animation cancelled immediately, but your hero will play a sound clip and animation if you stay still. If the taunted hero is killed by the taunter, the taunter earns a Smackdown and is announced to the entire map, plus plays an additional animation over the dead hero's body if applicable. The taunted killed hero may hear a Smackdown voice clip from the hero. Your Smackdowns are permanently recorded to your stats.
In addition the humiliation it brings, for every 10 Smackdowns you earn in a Matchmaking game, you receive 2 Silver Coins and 10 Experience. However, Taunt should not be used without discretion. The taunted hero receives vision of you while taunted, and if the taunted hero ends up killing the taunter instead, the taunter receives a Humiliation, which is announced and recorded to your stats.
Players must first purchase the basic Taunt from the HoN Store before it is available for use. You may then equip other Taunts to augment it with animations. In addition, the Super Taunt can be redeemed through HoN Plinko, which refreshes your Taunt cooldown every time you perform a successful Smackdown.
