Tw3 gwent close combat
Close combat cards go on the first row in gwent and are weak to Biting Frost. Some of these cards possess special abilities that enhance the strength of other cards on the board and can allow for dramatic reversals in the middle of a match, like tight bond cards. These are all the close combat unit cards in the various Gwent decks:
