Naib Subedar.png

Although not tall and physically strong, Naib is like most Gurkhas, and the rugged terrain has trained their strong physiques and indomitable spirits. Naib used to be a soldier for the East India Company, but because he believed in the idea of ​​equality for human beings, his dislike of war reached its peak and refused to sell for the British. He then became a free mercenary, but he has long since left his bloodthirsty life after retirement. Perhaps a dangerous game can give him the same experience on the battlefield?

Full Conclusion

Fighting with his comrades in battle, they covered him, but he was injured. The mercenary wanted to leave with his comrades. For this, he shot the opposing general in the head. In the military, he was discriminated because of his nationality. He was not treated as a British soldier in all respects, so he decided to retire as a soldier. When he was a mercenary, he was free and his income was much higher than before.

Mercenaries have always had weak comrades, but because their overall power was low, they decided not to fight and chose to retreat. The mercenary survived and recalled that his elbow was severely damaged in the battle.

Playing as

  1. Even having 4 elbow pads, save them. With 10% increased vaulting speed, you still be able to kite at least 10 seconds. (Don't)
  2. A Perfect Scenario:
    • 1 Elbow Pad for getting away from hunter. (Early/Mid)
    • 2 Elbow Pads to get to the rescue. (1 if there are secondary rescuer)
    • 1 Elbow Pad use for late game.
  3. Have Tide Turner on the mercenary so the teammate you save can get as far away from the rocket chair as possible.
  4. As his healing speed is slow and the ability to apply damage slower, sometimes in the match only Borrowed Time can save him. Due to that fact, bodyblock and take hits whenever you can for your teammates.
  5. Don't need to bodyblock the first time rescuing. Bodyblock the second time rescuing without Tide Turner.
  6. 'I'll report you if you Broken Windows on Naib' - Albert Einstein.
  7. Naib is the only character in the game who, at full health, can body-block a hunter's normal attack when the hunter has detention. This can be incredibly useful when your teammate is being chased by the hunter and is close to the exit gate.


  1. 1 hit for the Naib on rescue. 1 hit is more than nothing - especially when Naib can dash away with no injuries. (Don't expect terror shock on chair that much on high ranks)
  2. Don't chase Naib on early game. If you chase Naib to make him waste elbow pads, you will probably have 3 Cipher Machines completed. Even if you got him on the chair, 30% slowing down rocket chair speed make all machines primed.


  • His name, Naib Subedar is a rank in the Indian Army that often serves as platoon for commanders[12].
  • His birthday is on the 23rd of July.
  • He is interested and skilled in using melee weapons, fighting and climbing.
  • He hates boars and customers that cause trouble.
  • He likes machete and moonlit nights.
  • He is 163cm tall.
  • No official information about weight and age yet, though it can be assumed that he is in his early 30s
  • The way to achieve Naib's achievement is to use gloves when the hunter attacks 1 second before but is not injured
