Patch 20 is out now! Enjoy Highlands, bugfixes, and lots of balancing tweaks - Also, NVIDIA Reflex Support!

We're closing in on the end of the year. About time for another update, right?

This patch features a wide variety of bugfixes and improvements to gameplay, as well as a few treats on top.

Starting off with Highlands. A new map, which will be available for Free-For-All, Team Deathmatch, Skirmish, Duel and Teamfight.
Don't worry, we've got bigger maps in the works too, but more on that another time!

Furthermore we've also added a couple of new skins for shields, and a new helmet.

We've also overhauled the visuals of the Toolbox buildables. Also worth noting is that the wall cover is now shorter and allows to be vaulted over.

What is the point of new walls if they can't create impassable barriers? If a player wanted to have a cover, wouldn't they take a pavise shield or just a regular shield? Seems pretty pointless.

Horrible decision to alter the buildable walls. If the enemy can simply vault it, what's the point?

The old wall was used as a makeshift impassable wall to strategically hinder or reinforce certain areas, as to prevent the enemy from getting there. Might as well only build spikes now, because the new wall lost its purpose. If Archers need to duck behind cover, go Pavise shield.

Why not "add" the new wall instead of replacing it with the existing one?

The packet-loss on 80+ servers are really bad atm, worse than before patch...

Also the crossbow animation in 3rd person is kind of bugged.

Wow, more skins! Overhauled visuals!! Hurry up with the proper map making tools, I'm sick of playing terrible maps made by terribly pretentious mapmakers. There are dozens of people in the community who can and will do it better, for free, in a shorter time.

That's the point. Time to learn how to swing the weapon instead of just pointing it at enemy.

The horse was hard in medieval battles.
With really devastating damage.
We already have the spears to resolve the issue and changes that had already limited its efficiency in the game.
Now it is too much.
For me Mordhau is Medieval battles simulating reality.

Hey my game keeps crashing randomly, sometimes ill be able to play the round and when it swtiches maps it crashes no error code or anything. Other times ill jump into a game and it will just crash again no error just closes. Never happened before this patch update any help?

Need rollback !!
Refreshing the search for servers takes 10 minutes each time, it's a disaster.
There are always so many cheaters who make 35 - 3 in the middle of the melee, while I die half the time by a teammate or an arrow, in short, nothing good on the horizon for this game unfortunately.

There seems to be an issue with performance with this patch. I have lost 20-30 fps with no changes in hardware or settings. From what I have observed, it appears that there is some additional Bloom happening off of weapons and armor as well as off of the sun light source. I may be wrong but something caused the game performance to take a shit.

they dont care, its all lies & hallucination what we say
believe me i tried telling them in the discord a lot and in the forum before
its always the same, its on our site, servers & game runs super fine...
its already pathetic, dont waste your time with these guys

they made a channel for veteran-suggestions
and it still contains suggestions which players wrote in this forum many months before
like teammarkers on by default, also majority of upvotes there for this suggestion is a joke itself
they acting like they want feedback, but in the end they dont give a damn about it

the devs even ban players on discord stating their opinion about the game without any insults
speaks for itself, right geach?!

they once created a uncut diamond, but they decided to grind a potatoe out of it..

I see RCON was added. Has anyone been able to get it to work?
