Is this a new problem for you or has it always been like that?

Can the shield wall mode be bound to a dedicated key? Having shield and weapon mode switch on the same key is something I would expect from a casual console game port - not from Mordhau.

I sometimes stream films on my 2nd monitor which doesn't have a degraded performance when the ping spikes happen and I've also experienced the issue multiple times with nothing running except the game to rule out bandwidth issues. Given I didn't have this issue on my old PC I feel it's safe to discount my ISP. I'm experiencing this on both full 64 man and the smaller servers - always official servers.

Video streams only have soft real time requirements. The data is buffered and small fluctuations won't be noticeable. For an online game this is not possible. For those games you can only try to predict what the actions of the player are before they arrived. This is usually limited to a linear continuation of the movement and is sometimes noticeable as rubber banding.

To reduce the ping spikes, you can either instruct your router to strictly prioritize packages from and for Mordhau or you can just stop your video stream which only serves as a distraction anyway.

Occasionally the server will experience bandwidth problems and there is nothing you can do on your end.

Also Windows Update might just do what it wants in the background and cause some of these spikes. With newer hardware there might be more driver updates etc. These spikes can be reduced by using a real OS instead of presumptuous malware from a company that treats it's customers like children.

Have you tried verifying the cache?

Btw. if no dev answers, you can try to message the devs directly or you could try the official Discord channel.

Can you reach the URL with your browser on the PC you have Mordhau installed?

sharing button with the "throw weapon" (R) unless you hold R is terrible and its clunky as hell in fast paced combat, especially vs. more than 1 opponent.
i MIGHT have been able to deal with this if the held block was at least still on the right mouse button, but the fact that has been changed to a shield 'parry' makes no sense... who uses a shield with the intention of a parry, lol, for real.

So putting the alternative shield mode on another separate configurable keybind would be appease you for the moment? Because that's a completely reasonable request that almost nobody will oppose and I wouldn't be surprised if that was added with the next patch.

Have you tried playing and finishing a match or the tutorial?

Have you tried an older video driver?

So far it seems that the settings don't really affect the issue much. For now I would assume that playing around in the settings won't get you anywhere.
No idea where to go from here... To me it's like a needle in a haystack. :-/

Do you have mods installed? Do you use some kind of tweak tool? Have you already tried reinstalling Mordhau or verifying the cache?

I would only take the extreme cases for the first debugging attempt, e.g. no ragdolls at all, FOV at max/min. If that doesn't change anything you don't need to bother with fine-tuning.

We are not targeting magic numbers and random luck, but just want to see whether it makes any difference at all - for better or worse.

I don't know myself around Windows. Is there a chance that the DirectX version might be outdated?

Haven't seen that one before. Have you tried setting graphics really low? Have you tried changing your FOV?

Sounds like the problem is with your network configuration. I don't see what the devs can do about that. It's not like their firewall blocked ethernet cables.

Many here paused voluntarily for more than two months and found back into the game. You will be fine.

Today in Controversial Opinions That Nobody Shares:
Shields are a core mechanic that Mordhau has been built around since day one.

But first this:
We tested double KO and it was awful!"

Not a fan of the fire pit. Apart from that it looks good.

With all the evidence you provided they should be behind bars in no time.

Is the file C:\Users\%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Mordhau\Saved\Config\WindowsClient\Game.ini
read-only/write-protected on your system?

Goof, I'm on your side. This is just my favorite pasta of this forum.
