Starting today, we have removed all forum sections except announcements and bug reporting.

This is to help condense our feedback down into more popular social media platforms, and also helps to assist with moderation, as we now have less to manage for our volunteer mods.

If you would still like to give feedback (and we would definitely appreciate it!) please use our Discord - or take a visit to the Mordhau subreddit - Or visit the official Mordhau steam discussions.

Thank you all for the valuable feedback that has been given on these forums, and we hope to see you on our other platforms!

I was always annoyed that there was a really cool looking castle at the end of Mountain Peak that we couldn't access at all. Even if everything else happens to suck capybara balls, I'm nevertheless glad we're gonna get all up in that castle finally.

Also I literally suggested that kettle/buffet helmet YEARS ago in the armor thread fuuuuck yeah finally

Sorry for the late reply. Post them on Reddit, so they're all in one place. :)

If we don't see a tomato in at least one of the winner pictures I'm suing, refunding and shaking.
Not necessarily in that order.

Hi everyone! This latest patch has added quite a bit to the game, but unfortunately we've run into some problems that weren't apparent in our internal testing. Please be patient as we roll out additional updates to fix performance, blurry textures and other issues. These require a rebuild of each map, and take up to 4 days or so per level - the team is busy rebuilding these maps, and we'll be rolling out hotfixes as each map is ready. If you haven't seen the changelogs, read below to see what's new, and once again thank you for your patience!

MORDHAU Patch #14

Combat changes & Optimizations

This patch includes a large number of optimizations intended to improve overall FPS and reduce stuttering, especially during combat and on large player counts, as well as reduce load times. Also included are combat changes aimed at differentiating existing weapons more and at addressing overall balance. Finally, Feitoria has had its layout revised to make the ending more climactic.


Substantial CPU optimizations across the board to improve overall FPS and remove stutters and hitches during gameplay, especially on larger player counts
Optimized and improved loading times
Workaround for server information update error
Reworked Feitoria Invasion layout
Disabled dodging with barrels
Changed how deliverables work, it is now possible to drop them and pick them up (for attackers), and defenders can hold interact to destroy them
Disabled climbing on oil cauldron, ammobox, rock spawn, rock basket
Time to decline objective participation from 6s to 4s
Fixed a case where dying on ladder in Horde wouldn’t remember your equipment
BR/HRD Ladders on Grad now raise-/droppable
King-type objectives (Invasion) are now invulnerable until the first player could've possessed them (prevents rushing to take advantage of AI)
Traps and pavises no longer allowed to be placed on destroyables (which when destroyed would cause them to float)


Parry/Chamber box is now bigger - now significantly wider horizontally, fixing cases of attacks going through parries. Now always covers the legs and feet vertically, this fixes the broken toe stabs and makes it much easier to deal with overhead drags to the legs. - also affects shields, although less. Parry knockback reduced slightly
Parry turncap slightly more strict
Global attack turncaps 5% more strict
Trying to change attack direction during a strike release too many times will now get compensated by the game - this fixes (or attempts) the broken drags such as sky drags, waterfalls/wessex etc and promotes playing more “normal”
Attack lunge now decreases gradually after 105cm weapon range (Longsword) - this means that the longest weapons now have the least amount lunge
Miss recovery is now based on weapon length and speed or “weight” - this means that short one handed weapons now have significantly less miss recovery, making them much more nimble and lighter in use. Longer weapons have more, making misses more punishing.
Blunt weapons now have crippling effect - this means that being hit by a blunt weapon now slows you down more when being flinched and causes more camera shake/stun effect - comes in two tiers, strength depending on the attack and weapon. Tier 1 slows down 12.5%, Tier 2 slows down 25%
Billhook now has immobilize on the attacks that pull. This heavily slows down enemies and allows you to control them much easier
Stab knockback is now straight and more predictable
Huntsman now works differently and is no longer based on quiver, now only applies to enemies with a bow/crossbow in hand. This means that when switching to a melee weapon from a ranged weapon, after 4 seconds you no longer take the huntsman bonus damage, allowing archers to go melee without being oneshot from huntsman.
Fixed active parry blocking from behind
Plate leg armor now doubles kick damage
Kicks no longer have headshot damage
Kicks no longer drain stamina
Following up a feint with a stab will now have 50ms more lockout - this should fix most unpunishable stab feints

1H Axe recoveries reduced to 400ms

This content update marks the release of Feitoria, our biggest map yet, featuring all of our current game modes. In addition, we have also added more siege-oriented features, such as the ability to drop and raise ladders, chuck large two handed stones from above, tip over baskets of rocks, and even pour boiling oil from cauldrons positioned at strategic locations.

In the coming weeks and months we will be releasing more content additions and gameplay improvements: we’re adapting Mountain Peak for Invasion, finishing up work on our next new map Castello, as well as giving Horde mode some much needed attention.

Patch #13 Changelog 28/10/2019

  • Added stone basket trap interactable to existing maps
  • Added oil cauldron interactable to existing maps
  • Added boulder throwable which can be obtained from an interactable stone pile placed on existing maps. Deals more damage the faster it’s falling (gravity)
  • Ladders now have an interaction UI widget like most interactables, and can now be dropped and raised by holding interact, as long as nobody is on them
  • Invasion player respawn to 5s again
  • Fixed getting stuck on Taiga trees
  • Added 3 choppable trees to Grad
  • Widened keep entrances on Grad and removed the door on the ground floor to prevent congestion
  • Fixed exploiting NPCs in invasion/frontline by blocking them off
  • Fixed removebots command removing map NPCs


  • Crouch slowed down 25ms
  • Reverted miss combos no longer having lunge change from previous patch
  • Increased climbing speed on ladders by 15%
  • It is now possible to jump off ladders while on them, jump will go where the player aims
  • Base jump stamina cost reduced to 10
  • Cat perk fall damage reduction buffed to 90%
  • Brawler perk now also speeds up fists
  • Executioner Sword strike turncap now more strict
  • Executioner Sword stab stamina drain reduced by 1

Visuals & Misc

  • Added new flat top helmet with 5 variations: Covered flat top, Covered flat top orle, Enclosed flat top, Enclosed flat top orle, Visored flat top
  • Fall damage now has camera shake
  • Camera calculations (3p and 1p) now take into account scale, making scaled characters look natural (viewmodel animations)
  • Character scale is taken into account for interaction distance, allowing picking things up etc for bigger characters
  • Fixed crossbow 1p interact animation
  • Destroyable fence gate now has an additional state that removes the bottom board.
  • Helmets now draw fake shadows onto the face to add depth and make them seem more grounded
  • Fixed kills with torch saying “Stone” in the killfeed

This patch mostly features combat changes for improved readability as well as some other bugfixes.

Patch #12 Changelog 27/09/2019


  • Fixed invasion spawn values being different from Frontline: Player spawn 5->15, Ballista 30->180, Cata 30->180, Horse 30->120
  • Added destroyable trees to taiga that act as bridges and environment traps
  • Adjusted spawns on camp to favor first objective for attackers a bit
  • Added another burnable house to the camp on taiga to make defending a bit easier
  • Updated plugin (Linux server crash fix)
  • Fix for mod downloads being skipped
  • Potential fix for auth ticket error
  • Fix for failing community server reward drops


  • Miss combos no longer have lunge
  • Ripostes can now chamber, their chamber window is the entirety of the windup (chamber restrictions/sides still apply)

  • Flesh wound point cost reduced to 2
  • Blocking horse rider couch/joust no longer ragdolls
  • Adjusted regular strike release curve - now looks better and more readable
  • Riposte strikes now have their own release curve, which is linear - this fixes the stutter in the early release transition periods and makes them more readable

Visuals & Misc

  • Fixed a spawn protection box that poked through the ceiling on INV_Grad
  • TeamFlinch is now a server variable (same place as teamdamage is set, TeamDamageFlinch = 1 to enable) which will cause team hits to flinch teammates. Disabled by default.
  • Riposte stabs no longer angle (always straight), they also no longer let you choose the side of the stab, the side chosen is inherent in the parry side, which forces stabs to use the more readable (flip-around) animation, fixing cases of "jpeg stabs"
  • Strike->stab morphs will now force the stab to use the same angle as the strike, making the action more natural looking and less snappy
  • Attack turn compensation is now enabled in all directions (previously depended on angle, e.g. horizontals had no up-down compensation, and overheads had no left-right compensation). - this will make certain cases more readable and no longer instant hit

What's the map names for the config for Invasion?


the suffix 0/1 indicates which team is attacking, currently there's only one variant per map anyway though

Invasion & Mod support

With this update, we are shipping the Invasion game mode on three existing maps: Grad, Taiga and Camp. Invasion is an epic, asymmetric, objective-based mode where one team defends and the other attacks. The remaining maps will be adapted for Invasion in the future, including the two new maps we’re working on - Feitoria and Castello.
Also featured in this update is automatic mod (map) download when connecting to a modded server. This is only the first step in mod support for MORDHAU, as the official SDK is not ready yet, although our resourceful community has managed to make maps regardless.

Stay tuned for more updates in the near future, Feitoria is just about ready for release!

Patch #11 Changelog 10/09/2019


  • Added a whole new asymmetric objective-based mode called Invasion. Currently available on Grad, Taiga and Camp. Mixed in with existing Frontline rotation on official servers.
  • Added automatic mod (map) download on connect and integration (workshop)
  • Server owners can specify their auth token in the ServerModAuthToken field in Game.ini which they get from Any mods subscribed by the user will be automatically downloaded & updated by the server on startup.
  • Reduced waiting for player time in duel from 120s to 90s
  • Fixed kill credits being assigned to teammates for teamdamage (e.g, even if the enemy suicided or died otherwise) causing a teamkill
  • Players on vehicles now count for pushing in push objectives (e.g. horses etc)
  • Getting auto-kickbanned for teamkilling (5 TKs) no longer applies a global matchmaking ban of 30 minutes, it now only bans you from that server for 30 minutes.


  • Adjusted axe head bonus stamina drain vs shields to be slightly weaker
  • Held block shields global stam negation increased by 1
  • Held block shields block turncap slightly less strict
  • Reverted Horde changes from last patch except for the projectile damage change
  • Horse respawn time increased to 2 minutes

You are supposed to be able to couch the estoc. Obviously its range should be at least approximately as long as its model though.
