Games like Fortnite – the best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale, I think it's fair to say, is the standout title of the decade-old battle royale game genre. Not since Minecraft have we seen a game enter the mainstream in this way - but that doesn't mean Fortnite is the only battle royale out there that's worth playing. We'll go over just a few of the very best battle royale games like Fortnite…

Mordhau Battle Royale tips – how to consistently win Mordhau’s Battle Royale matches

So Mordhau has a Battle Royale mode, because of course it does. I've only recently come round to trying it out, because the servers (at least in Europe) were always pretty janky. But in the last few weeks I've been playing it rather religiously, and y'know what? If you haven't given BR as much thought as the other modes like Frontline or Skirmish up until…

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 archery guide [Patch #7] – 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…

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

One of the most important divergences that Mordhau takes from the path set by the previous best-in-class medieval brawler (Chivalry, for those wondering) is its Perks system. 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, now updated for…

Mordhau shields guide [Patch #7] – 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. And now, Patch #7 has released, giving shield-users some added mobility and quality of life tweaks, so it's a good time to get started on learning this side of Mordhau's combat. This Mordhau shields guide is, I think, a necessary…
