Mordhau

New sword Twirling animation in new gameplay video?

6 15

It happens a few times during the video, but one of the first times is at 1:34.

I'm not sure if this sword twirl is an emote or if its a quick fancy version of a feint, but I love it!

This is really shaping up to be chivalry 2.0. Chiv has been my favorite game of all time, and It looks like Mordhau is going to take over that title.

Thanks Mordhau Devs!

Fairly certain it's simply the Slasher flourish emote but updated.

This animation is an emote that you can spam.
And yes, Mordhau is better than anything torn banner would ever release.

If it's a spammable emote, it might be a problem in competitive play if used for feints or elaborate combos. I can imagine a situation where a player swings at an opponent, feints to cancel the attack, and uses the emote before striking for real. An average opponent may ignore the feint but will most likely parry the air afterwards thinking the twirl was a weapon wind up.

How is that a problem? I'd be impressed if I was killed by such crafty fighting.

Because some people have autism.

The spin looks a little too fast imo. Especially on the zwei, but even on the small swords.

Very interesting that they're showing things that won't in the game. It is implying that this really is RAW gameplay.

I think that's the purpose of that emote, using is for feinting...

I hope they change the sound effect of it it sounds kinda cheesy right now to be honest.

Should have a bit more weight behind twirling it around.

As far as my little knowdlage goes, swords weight center was about that handle I think, that would make it feel lighter, I dunno how much "weight" you would have at spinning it.

Other the other hand, the maces weight center is at the tip.. so yeah
