There are a lot of visual issues with head gore from blunt weapon damage.
The gore model placed on the neck is red mush with a femur coming out of it.
If the blunt weapon only causes a partial dismemberment and the head becomes detached, the lower half of the neck model shows a clean cut while the gore model on the upper half of the severed neck has that weird ham bone in it.
If the head is destroyed by a blunt weapon, the head vaporizes and a few tiny, red nuggets spawn in its place
This, in my opinion, looks terrible. I'd have rather seen a broken neck and some crushed metal bump map decal on the helmet or some other alternative. If there is no helmet, there should maybe be some crushed head model or some other localized wounds on the head. I'm no game designer so I don't know exactly what's feasible, but I think nearly anything would look better than my magic hammer turning someone's head into chicken nuggets.
This is the big truth

I find the warhammer blunt gore to be really satisfying with the sound and tore up flesh, though Ive never looked as closely as you have.
I think head explosions with the heavier blunt weapons are a bit memey, especially with how little there is left of the head since it only makes like 5 chunks.
Agreed, I never liked the head explosions in chiv and I was happy they weren't in mord. Its way more brutal without the head explosion anyways
Instead of an explosion, the heavy weapons should just make a shitload of chunks and blood splash tbh, or at least make more blood and chunks if the explosions are going to stay.
Also please add partial decaps to arrows
you're just supposed to explode the head and move on to another. Who has the time for such trivialities as this when combat is still unfinished?
BIG MAUL BIG SMASH
At last someone said it. I thought I was the only one who found the new pumpkin head explosion gore annoying. I did not want to see it after Chivalry.
The head explosion is underwhelming at the moment. It really needs more gore. I would love broken necks and limbs. Adds a lot to the mood of the game. This has been talked about in a long thread about gore before and it came down to time for the devs as they are prioritizing getting the game ready for release.
This is from the same day patch 20 was up.
