This update also comes with a large variety of new weapon and armor cosmetics to cover all your fashion needs.


Some of the new unique weapon skins

The Duel mode is leaving its beta phase. Due to this, we are resetting duel MMR. We have added duel leaderboards and the ability to display your duel rank in any mode, as well as rank decay. We hope these changes will incentivize more players to try out the mode.

Our loadout system has had a point rework, rebalancing it for 48 total points (instead of 16), which gives us a better ability to balance individual weapons, armors and perks. The aim is to promote more diverse builds, which was hard to do under the old point distribution.


Armory/Loadout changes, including a new team color preview

Last not but least, there are also numerous bug fixes and gameplay tweaks for an even better Mordhau experience.

Stay healthy!

  • Fix for various invisibility exploits

Combat

  • Re-added team hitstop
  • Movement now slightly more weighty/grounded and less jumpy
  • Reduced knockback across the board
  • Reduced lunge across the board slightly – this will make combat cleaner and less “slide-y” across the board
  • Stab feint & Stab combo feint windows reduced 25ms
  • Stab early release increased very slightly
  • Slowed down stand to crouch very slightly
  • Jump kick now 25ms slower than regular kick, no longer drains stamina but keeps momentum from the movement speed (no longer slows down suddenly)
  • Riposte chamber window is now the same as regular chamber
  • Removed overpower from non-shield ripostes, shields still have it
  • Ripostes no longer clash with non-ripostes
  • Added riposte hyperarmor – this means hitting someone who is riposting will hitstop your attack and force a short (300ms) lockout from parrying, preventing players from spamming attacks into a riposting player and instantly parrying their riposte hit trade. This will buff 1vX.
  • Shield wall ripostes can now be flinched (additional tweaks to shield wall will come in the future)
  • Can now parry out of shield wall ripostes like regular ripostes
  • Shield wall can now be lowered instantly with no recovery, allowing players to cancel them and start a normal attack or tap parry to get normal ripostes. This means you can also instantly parry during the raising of shield wall, or parry incoming jump kicks, aswell as getting regular hit trade ripostes by parrying.
  • Forward parry now disabled for teammates (will reduce range of parries of teammates, making it easier to hit around)
  • Kick feint followups now apply stab/strike lockouts like normal feints (fixes cases where kick followups could be used to bypass feint lockouts for stab/strikes)
  • Fixed shieldwall not draining stamina correctly on riposting out of it
  • Added a small knockback bump when landing on someone
  • Horse force rearing angle increased so it actually works now
  • Ladder raise/drop time reduced to 2 seconds
  • Chase mechanic can no longer be broken by abusing specific movement strafe combinations (This was a very specific technique to cheese the chase mechanic and will not affect the vast majority)
  • Chase mechanic activation time now 100ms faster (500ms -> 400ms)
  • Removed front chase mechanic from the game (was active on players holding ranged weapons or toolbox, throwables in hands)
  • Combattest: Added experimental blending time derivation based on pose analysis: this will automatically find blend values and lower/raise them based on animations the character is in, fixing ugly snaps in certain animation combinations and making some animations more responsive, making them less hidden.
  • Combattest: Added new mechanic that fixes/improves missing on purpose/combo misses – aiming at enemy attack tracers when parrying will now give a much faster parry recovery when it detects an attack recovery/release/missed combo windup/environment hit (includes team hitstop) – uses a modified parry box to detect and is easy to trigger, currenly has no sound or obvious indicator
  • Combattest: Added riposte feint (not the final iteration as it needs animation changes)
  • Combattest: Attack recoveries can now be parried and will now thud when hitting characters, reducing clipping and reducing lockouts, will still count as a miss on thud
  • Combattest: Increased feint lockout & regular parry recovery slightly for more punishable feints

Weapons & Equipment

  • Point system changed to 48 points (point costs are raised proportionally) – this will allow for finer balance between equipment, armor and perk costs and make the armory more sandboxy
