[mordhau]Mordhau Update Brings New Weapon, Gameplay Tweaks, And More

2021-07-08

  There’s a new?Mordhau?update in town, and it’s bringing some fun extras to try out. The latest update for the medieval battler adds a brand new weapon, extra mode support for two maps, and some gameplay tweaks to make your experience a little more streamlined.

  First up, update 21 for?Mordhau?adds the Partisan. It’s a shorter spear that’s primarily meant for close-range stabbing, but it can also be thrown. There are three different styles for the Partisan spear, so you’re bound to find one you like. This one looks perfect for those who like to have lots of options when it comes to combat in?Mordhau. Developer Triternion also provided some impressions of the spear. Here it is in all its glory:

  It’s not just about the new Partisan weapon, though. In addition to this,?two of?Mordhau’s maps are getting extra support for game modes. The Castello map now supports the Frontline gameplay mode, and you’ll find brand new objectives in that map to match. You can also now enjoy the Crossroads map in the Horde gameplay mode, so be sure to check those out for a new spin on familiar gameplay.

  There are plenty of gameplay changes in this new update as well. Triternion has reworked default loadouts to make them more friendly for new players, and you’ll also find brand new localizations in place, plus new support for the Japanese language. New skins have been added for gauntlets, helmets, and weapons, and there are gameplay changes across the board including combat animation tweaks and weapon adjustments. There’s nothing specific that feels like a complete overhaul to mechanics, of course, but there are plenty of smaller changes that will make a difference in moment-to-moment gameplay.

  If you want to take a look at the full patch notes for?Mordhau?update 21, then you can do so right here on the official Steam page. As ever, there’s a pretty sizable changelog to read, so make sure you set aside some time if you want to peruse everything.
