Yes that one was in Chivalry as well.
Not my favourite but I wouldn't be opposed.

There are plenty of accounts of vikings and barbarians using horned helmets, so it isn't actually.

Really?!

Making false statements doesn't make it historically accurate or real for that matter...just so you know!

Look at my above post you will see horned helms were used in combat and tournaments, teutonic horned helm being one example.

You actually SAID vikings so i replied to that!

Clearly you didnt read all my posts where I brought up historical horned teutonic helmets

I never really understood horned helmets. Wouldn't they be impractical? They would be caught on stuff not to mention they add more weight and would cost more to produce. I don't think they existed in medieval times

i say use it i mean the Executioners Sword was never recorded to have been used in combat so why not use Funeral Helms in game

Yeah good point. There are at least a few good examples of historical horned helms which could fit well, particularly the funeral helm of Albert von Prankh and the horned helm of danish king Valdemar the Conqueror

While I'm still in two minds about those helmets, that argument is still beyond silly in a game like this one. If a horned helmet would break your immersion, what about all the other things? Magic horses? Naked knights?

At this point I don't see why not. My immersion is already destroyed by skinny naked men throwing firepots yelling 'have at them boys' apparently being mercenaries... It's funny and all but fuck me the game already takes you out of it in so many ways you may as well go a bit fantasy with your level designs and armour as long as its not Elder Scrolls level.

I disagree. Just because immersion isn't perfect doesn't mean we should make it worse.

Devs give us helmet out of any of these 3 on the basis theres a gun and carrot weapon in the game now. Just make sure they have some big horns on them no pissy small horns sorry but the second photo the helmet is great but the horns could have a little more oomph

The funeral helm/tournament helms with horns like the teutonic helmet below were indeed used in tournaments, I looked it up in the academic journals a while ago.
