Guide to MORDHAU’s Gamemodes (ft. Fortifications & Vehicles)

, , 100 Comments


Hey guys, it’s Trix. Let’s just get straight to it. Frontline. This is Mordhau’s 64-player objective based
gamemode. Simply put, to win you must do the following:
Spawn in at your home base, capture the first flag, capture the second flag, complete the
objective to unlock the third flag, capture the third flag, complete the objective to
destroy the enemy base and win. This can only be done in a linear fashion,
there is no back-capping. Now, the twist is that throughout this entire
battle while you are taking an objective, the enemy team can also do the exact same
thing to you. This forms a ‘frontline’ of conflict between
each objective. The maps are also designed in a way to allow
for many different approaches. Now, for the defense. You can fortify certain locations around each
flag. Wooden mallets can be found around these to
build them up or repair them. If you wish to fortify further, equip the
toolbox to your loadout, and if you’d like to be more efficient bring along a blacksmiths
hammer, as well as equip the smith perk. The toolbox will allow you to build barricades,
spikes and a deployable ballista. You can also refill your toolbox at an ammo
box. Battle Royale. You spawn into a round with 63 other players. Search for equipment in chests, or ask other
players politely for theirs. Fight to be the last person standing, with
a playzone that decreases in size over time. Horde. Survive through waves of enemy AI that increase
in difficulty the further you progress. You can find equipment around the map which
you can buy with the points you receive for killing enemies and completing waves. Vehicles & Interactables. Cavalry is available in both Frontline and
Battle Royale as world spawns.To hop on a horse just interact with it. There are three horse types. Light, Medium, and Heavy. The heavier the armour the more damage it
can take, but the slower it moves. Keep in mind, horses do not regenerate health. You can perform your standard attacks on horseback,
but what makes cavalry truly dangerous is their momentum based damage. The faster you’re moving the more damage
you can dish out. To couch a weapon hit F. Make sure you’re
moving fast or it won’t work. Only polearms can be couched, with the estoc
being the only exception. If you wish to use a lance they can only be
found on maps as pickups, they are near the horse spawns. You can parry a couched attack if you time
it properly, but you will be ragdolled. To effectively take down cavalry, you can
attack a rider with a billhook to ragdoll them, causing them to dismount. This only works if they fail to block your
attack. The catapult is another tool available to
players during battle. These can be entered from the rear, and you’d
use the controls you’d expect to move and attack. The range of your shots can be adjusted with
mouse wheel up and down. If you aren’t killed by a catapult projectile,
you will ragdoll. The ballista is also available but this is
very self explanatory, it’s just a giant stationary crossbow. You can find these placed in various strategic
locations on most maps. Ladders can be interacted with in order to
climb. You can only use one handed weapons on these,
or your fists. The billhook can be used on players climbing
ladders to ragdoll them. Axes can be used as well. Doors can be broken down and destroyed, as
well as be repaired with a mallet or blacksmith’s hammer. You can ofcourse just open up a door to walk
through. However, your opponent can block a door by
standing in front of it, preventing it from being opened. This will force you to break it down. Or, you know, you can just open it towards
yourself by quickly turning around when you interact. Doors can also be kicked open if you want
to prove a point. This will ragdoll any unsuspecting players
while they are attacking. Last but not least, you may find find various
objects to interact with on each map. These include gates to open up or close off
a castle’s defense, or elevators as a way to traverse the map. And uhh, that should about do it. I hope this helped! I’ll see you guys later, take it easy.

    I have more guides in the works. Expect a beginner's melee guide in about a week, with an intermediate one following shortly afterwards. There is also a more in-depth tutorial series in the works about a month away, so stay tuned!

    You have to make a video with the theme of the Princess Bride

    It will be a duel between Inigo Montoya and the Westley

    You must make the costumes replicate the film

    You must even copy the script or simply dub it over the video

    You will do this

    I wasn't expecting a battle royal mode. I'm both excited and scared of it given the divide in players.

    This might be the first BR I may get into, the melee combat side of it really works, in theory at least.

    Down to the final hour now, I can't thank Trix and other content creators for not only introducing me to this amazing project, but keeping us entertained during the long journey. I hope to meet you soon on the battle fields. Everyone.

    If doors can be opened/kicked in either direction then what's their defensive purpose? Stand behind them and kick whenever someone apporaches?

    Biggest reason I'm happy about the release of this game, is that it sets the bar higher for Mount & Blade 2's combat which I was worried about (not as much now with a new standard)

    I’m having this weird problem with the games menus. When I put my curser over something like the setting menu, it’s like the curser really isn’t there and it doesn’t highlight it for me to click, I have to move it to the side of what I want in order for me to able to click on it. And I can’t even get into the setting because of it

    Please do a quick tutorial of how to start a match with a friend. Or is the release just causing a bunch of buggy issues?

    Could you do a guide on graphics? I'm using the default ultra with a few things changed like motion blur but my game looks like trash compared to yours.

    glad they make it impossible to back-cap, its such a huge problem in the open map multi point games like battlefield.

    you call falling or getting thrown off/around "ragdolling" (rediculous btw) but you don't call interactables interabtables? O_o

    I really don't like free for alls and I honestly distrust the skill I'd have in this game, so knowing there is a game mode that won't leave me getting repeatedly buttfucked is good.

    Too bad that mountain peak is the only balanced front lines map. Also too bad that there isn't a siege mode like M&B's multiplayer.
