Bladed penetrate multiple targets but blunts don't have any other bonus

Can't you just continue a combo if you hit someone with a blunt weapon? Other than that blunt weapons have the best stats. 2 point hammer can 2hk on 3tier helmet, which is all that any sword can do in terms of the fastest kill. A mace at 4 points can 2hk to the torso with t3 armor, which something that a 10 point sword can't do, something like 6 point axe can though.

Do you mean that you can just stab after hit, without the release or combo timer?

Blunt weapons are good at killing heavy armored target but deal less damage to light armor than blade weapons. 2 points axe can one headshot kill a opponent who has no helm but 2 points hammer can't, executioner sword kills a guy by hitting no armored parts with one swing but maul has to hit head to make a one shot kill but maul has shortest reach and slowest windup time and recovery time in all weapons. So in general different weapons are good for killing different armor types.

How is it not an advantage to able to morph immediately after every hit you land? Do you even think about what you say man

I can answer that for you. No, he doesn't. He's to busy with drowning this forum in the sea of his bad ideas.

Executioner's sword > all blunts tbh

Blunt weps are made to fuck armor, that's they are for. Maul, Warhammer and the Mace and fantastic fucking weps

Does that morphing right away thing work with all blunts like longsword alt and lutes?

Blunt weapons have higher knockback, as well as better damage (for a given speed class) against armor.

(edit: but generally worse damage for a given speed class against unarmored. Blunt weapons kinda just do pretty much the same damage across the board regardless of armor.)

Also, blunt weapons are a direct counter to armored foes, in terms of damage.

But this is not really true if you think about the amazing swords we have. Messer, executioners, estoc can all 2 shot tier 3 armor. The maul is in a good place, I just think the other blunts are not, I'm talking about actual blunts not mordhau grip wepaons.
Dude try the one handed mace. It tho shots level 3 chests and is silly versatile and fast. Blunts basically negate armour advantge. Its hugely beneficial in 1v1 vs someone using a bladed weapon. Especially one that does not have massive damage or a good piercing poke. Also most blunt weapons have better stamina drain stats

What is morph, isn't it when you start a swing but stab instead?

You can morph a stab into a slash too.

How does that apply to what they're discussing- hitting some one?

You can't morph a combo. So without hit-stop you have to wait until recovery is over before you can initiate another attack that can morph.

All you had to say is that it's basically longest range 2hk to t3 torso.

Blunt headshots that don't kill should knock off the helmet like the tutorial.

Also it doesnt work with mordhau the morph combo

Also, i agree it's barely a benefit, because of hitstop. You would have to kill an enemy to morph that combo, since you cant combo because of hitstop. And who combos whiff attacks with blunt weapons anyways? Unless your facing someone ducking and jumping over swings it barely benefits you in any way.

No increase their stamina drain. Helmet knock is permanent, and discourages usage of them. By in large weapons have stamina drain of 20 despite the cost, attack speed, or type.

You are making an ass of yourself. Hitstop doesn't apply when you kill the opponent. Therefore you can't morph in that situation. Also you can combo because of hitstop. You just don't pay the combo stamina cost and additionally can morph. And there is a good reason to combo attacks that missed with every weapon: CFTP.

CFTP stands for combo-feint to parry if anyone was wondering
