Oh, the messer? No, but it could make for a nice falchion skin though. Hell that's even better for me!

That could be nice, but I don't know if it would fit or not. It feels closer to a colonial era sword. Maybe like how the Viking gear is the earliest, the saber would be the latest.

Add a polehammer and make it the blunt variant of the halberd. We are currently lacking an expensive and long range blunt weapon.

yeah by 1648 the Sabre became a common Weapon so would fit but would be close to that cut off

Parrying Dagger/Main Gauche/Sword Breaker

Despite being a dagger, it's a left-handed shield-type weapon. Alters parry counters so that they use this dagger instead. When the counter is activated, the attacker has some of their stamina sapped (making disarms more likely) followed by the hit of the parrying dagger. Its counterattack has similar traits to a normal dagger otherwise, and it doesn't expand the timing or hitbox of the parry any.

Good counter for min-maxed one-weapon builds?

makes me wish the default dagger wasn't based off of these.

(Proto) sabers have been in use since at least the 10th century. You're talking about commonality in the west, but they were used way earlier in the east and middle east. It's well within the range of Mordhau's time frame, and also one of the most important and widely used swords in history. It deserves a standalone version imho.

Many devs are east european too so you'd think they'd want one.

Make it a slashy version of rapier tbh. Lower dmg to heavy but very quick.

Sorry guys, maybe it's not worht it but I think that this type of Dane Axe would be a cool add to the game.
Much longer than a standard two handed axe, faster and lighter.

First - more skins and parts for polearms please, and the most of all - spearheads. There's lots of them, you know.

Second - maybe it's a good idea to add a special anti-armor spear (Ahlspiess), with less reach, less total damage, much less damage with swings, but one of the best armorpiercing damage.

And my main suggestion - change the spear's damage, I think it makes much more sense that longer grip gives slower, but harder strikes, when shorter grip (half-spear?) gives faster, but weaker strikes. And also shorter grip gives more control of the head, so it can deal a bit more armorpiercing damage.

The Lantern Shield!

The swiss army knife of all renaissance shields:

I feel this potential weapon could be utilized in the game in two seperate ways.

  • It could be a very expensive skin for the Buckler (50000 Gold or more), so therefore purely for aesthetic function.

  • For practicality, it could be the introduction of an Off-hand Weapon (carried in the left hand) that can parry and riposte. To elaborate, when a player parries with the Lantern Shield, they can choose to either riposte with it, or riposte with their Primary Weapon (right hand weapon), thus the player can alternate between weapon ripostes to throw their opponent off.

And with Off-hand Weapon ripostes as a potentially new mechanic, could be the time to introduce Dual-Wielding, though I'm sure that could be quite the effort to balance the game.

Sorry to bother again but...
What about the Viking shield
? It shluld have already came out

1430 2175

Let's be real, the two large shields left in the game need an overhaul.

What would the viking shield add that's not already covered by the kite and heater shield? In alpha patch 14/15 you could argue that viking shield would be really good at blocking side hits but offered poor visibility and weakness to leg/face shots. Thus, fitting in and adding something different to the line up of shields.

Yeah I wanna see viking shields, but what's the point when all held shields would basically just be different skins of the same irritating thing. Shield overhaul is sorely needed.

Pretty pointless to add new shields as long as they still need some more balancing...
