Mordhau shields guide – shield stats & info, how to use and counter shields

Mordhau's selection of shields is remarkably diverse both in size and in terms of their potential for completely shaking up Mordhau's magnificently elaborate combat system. This Mordhau shields guide is, I think, a necessary addition to our Mordhau series, because not only have I seen many players asking what the point of shields is as they appear far too weak and cumbersome, but I've also…

Mordhau archery guide – Longbow, Recurve Bow, Crossbow tips and techniques

Archery in Mordhau is a bit of a polarizing topic. At times a skilled Longbowman laying waste to their enemy from afar can be just about the most frustrating thing imaginable. Other times, you might go what feels like 5 whole minutes without ever landing a shot - except on your own teammates. If you're looking to improve your game from the latter to the…

Steam Charts: rats, rage, rain, and rending

Our former John (RPS in peace) has vanished in odd circumstances, last heard claiming he'll be flying through the sky in a big metal snake, so I'm taking over this week. Not even an employee anymore and he's still making work for me. Join me for a stroll down the hit parade to inspect last week's top-selling games on Steam.

Mordhau’s Bigpin Brawlers capture a silliness my review did not

I skipped over so much of what makes Mordhau great in my Mordhau review. Yes, it's a multiplayer medieval melee where 64 swordboys duke it out in hectic battles, then retire to duel servers for more sophisticated brawling. Yes, there's a cool customisation system. Yes, it's hilarious. But I don't think I properly stressed how silly it all is. This video of two men running…

Mordhau weapons guide – full weapon stats, how to use Mordhau’s best weapons

One of the many things I enjoy about Mordhau is just how much thought has been put into its enormous armoury of weapons on offer. With each weapon featuring up to 48 different damage stats, unique attack animation speeds, stamina drain values, attack ranges, and much more, you can be sure it was no small task to creating and balancing these weapons; and nor was…

Mordhau maps and locations – tips and details on all existing (and upcoming) Mordhau maps

Mordhau's colourful array of maps and environments sets the stage for all the brutal bloodshed and loss of limb that has occurred in the two and a half weeks since the game's release; and it looks like Triternion are looking to expand this list of locales further in the coming updates, with mention of two new maps appearing in their first week recap post. So…

Mordhau game modes – explanations and tips for Frontline, Skirmish, Horde, and Duel Servers

I spent a great many dozens of hours figuring out how to play Mordhau before I first tried Horde Mode. I'd got to the point where I would consistently rank at the top of the leaderboards on Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Duel servers... but when I first played Horde, I was completely lost. I died on Wave 4, after being pinned against a stone wall with…

Mordhau patch improves kicking, stops bots from throwing too much poo

Oh look, one of the best games in existence has changed a bit. Yesterday's patch to Mordhau's swords and vandals hasn't brought any major changes, but it has brought a few that made me go 'oh cool'. The headlines: kicking is better, stab attacks are a bit slower, and it's slightly easier to get past some of the most annoying shields. Oh, and the AI…

Okay, this is the really important part of our Mordhau guide series - and how in the world could it not be?

Mordhau guide – top Mordhau tips on how to win fights and improve quickly

Mordhau is so good, isn't it? So rewarding, so bloodlust-inciting, so head-choppingly, limb-slicingly fun. But if you're a newer player struggling to get to grips with Mordhau's intricate combat system and you're constantly encountering Alpha players who block everything you've got and never seem to miss, then that fun can be tinged with periods of quite intense frustration. But now you've found our Mordhau guide…

Mordhau perks guide – explanations of all Mordhau perks, best perks to use

Mordhau does quite a number of clever little things to progress the medieval slash-'em-up formula set by Chivalry, and today we'll talk about one of the most important: perks. Mordhau's perks allow you to invest your character's "points" into something other than your equipment and weaponry, adding little (or large) bonus traits and moves to your death-dealing repertoire. Our Mordhau perks guide will walk you…

Feature: Love cuts deep

Mordhau review

I'm in love with Mordhau. If I described it as “Chivalry, but there's a button to hold your sword wrong”, I would be both accurate and unjustly reductive. I'd also be giving it a huge compliment, because before last Monday Chivalry was the best multiplayer sword ‘em up in existence. Now Mordhau isn't just that. It's one of the best games in existence, full stop.

OK, two things on the agenda. Firstly, I'm heading off on my expedition to attempt to break the Curse Of Steam Charts for the next couple of weeks. I'm returning to Ursidae, Caniformia, to find that ancient temple once more and attempt to appease the enraged spirit of Horace. Hopefully we'll never speak again! Secondly, Toby's back!

Mordhau devs fix progression, apologise for ongoing server wonkiness

All has not been well with war. From the few hours I've played so far, Mordhau might be one of the best multiplayer sword 'em ups since Chivalry - but its Monday release went about as smoothly as a charge under hot pitch. Developers Triternion have apologised for the problems, fixed some issues that stopped XP and gold rewards from being distributed, and made it…
