Mordhau Dev Tracker

13 Jan


Hello everyone!

As usual, we'd love to hear your thoughts on the game. Any suggestions, critiques, feedback or requests are welcome! Like always, please keep things civil and respectful,

As for this week, we had a shorter meeting and mostly focused on some general "housekeeping", as we've brought two developers on - a sound designer and a programmer. We'll be sure to put out some good meeting notes next week!

Last week's thread can be found here:

I have a small and somewhat unimportant suggestion. But it would be really nice to be able to choose, on the home menu screen, which character to display. Or have the option to shuffle all or a set group of loadouts. I have a few ugly fellas I'm not super excited to see.

I think we might be able to do this with our planned rework to the armory! We'll see :)

Plz make butcher apply to projectiles. Or add a perk called like beast hunter or something so that it’s a range only dmg multiplier that increased damage to horses 2X. The this would make the newer players actually really helpful with dealing with cavalry by having them focus the horse instead of the rider and burn it down pretty quickly. Also PLEASE add a perk similar to fireproof called goggles or something that increases visibility by 80% in smoke bomb radius, it’s ridiculous that people can take 3 smoke bombs in a load out and spam them cheesing and completely obscure the entire map trolling their teammates and making it impossible to fight.

Good point, butcher would be useful for projectiles. As for smoke visibility, it's definitely something we could look at.

Thanks for taking the time. This kind of community interaction is really encouraging.

Triternion knows that:

  • Mordhau is a niche indie game with 3000-4000 average concurrent players. If something was to happen that made a significant number of players quit, it would be bad for the game's survival.

  • Regardless of what anyone thinks, a significant number of players will quit if female characters are added without the option to turn them off client-side (gender toggle). Look at what happened to Battlefield V.

  • When Triternion suggested client-side gender toggle as a sensible compromise, the SJW games press bullied them until they said they wouldn't do it. So unless Triternion goes back on their word, that isn't an option.

  • The number of people who actually care that you can't make your Mordhau character female is tiny. In fact I think I've only seen you and like 2 other people mention it on this sub.

That's why they're delaying as long as possible and working on other prior...

If people quit because we add women, that's good. They should probably go outside for a bit.

I’ve noticed a huge inconsistency with riposte hyperarmor, where I’ll be riposting with a longsword (and be about halfway through my swing arc) and some dude will hit me with an axe or other small weapon and still easily block my attack after connecting with me. I feel like the hit stop window should be a bit longer (akin to hitting an obstacle) or bring back overpower to punish people just spamming attacks into one person in 1vX

a lot of the planned changes should remedy this 🤞

Could you please make a peasants vs knights gamemode? It's as straightforward as that. An Invasion map with 28 peasants versus a team of 6 knights. or some ratio like that. Thank you.

Sounds fun, but we're not really in a position to split the playerbase any further.

considering when in history this game is set, i think we all know where those people are...

The Moors kinda conquered what's now Spain and ruled it for like 800 years during the medieval era, so yeah maybe brush up on history a bit 👍

Hi Jax,

Loving the game. Any plans for future game modes? I can imagine a CTF-styled mode being hilariously chaotic given the nature of the game - maybe even 4-way team battles (Red V Blue V Green V Yellow for example)?

Hey, thanks for the suggestions!
The issue is that the more modes we add, the less populated each mode gets. Because of that, we're not trying to go crazy on new modes.

I mean 1) we will get great voice acting, and 2) we already have Foppish which is completely ridiculous.

Thanks, Jax. I was starting to give up.

No problem. We still don't have an ETA because we don't want to set unrealistic or inaccurate expectations, but it's something we're really excited to show in the future. :)

Is there some reason head armor takes so much speed away from you? I run light armor most of the time but as you are keenly aware I'm sure that leads to being one shot.......constantly. I would love to at least equip a medium helmet and light everywhere else with out losing like 60 percent of the mobility. Why is the head slot so punishing in a game full of one shot weapons?

It pretty much makes light armor and short spear a meme build as it has low survivability AND low damage. Either way or a "medium" spear. Not quite as fast as short, not as slow as normal spear. But it doesn't tickle the enemy?

We are looking into some potential changes for armor, but you said it yourself - there are a lot of weapons that can one-shot you to the head, so its mobility penalty reflects that.

Since no one is going to see this I'm going to suggest something insane.

Remove glancing blows, enable backswings and disable ranked play on April fools. It would cause quite the commotion and be unforgettable.

Feed me downvotes :)

ew :)

Then if I may ask any insight into just how the issue of inconsistent animations leading to near instant accelerations and excessively long drags will be handled? This has been an issue for sometime and I know for sure I'm not the only person who wants to see a fix

Crush is working on a riposte fix that should solve instant accels, and as dropbbbear said below, a combat rework is coming in the future!

Thank you for your response!

On that topic:

Have you considered on a major, paid expansion to continue supporting what you already have?

Perhaps we can delve into romans, Spartans, Egyptians, Japanese, Swedish, etc.

And somehow make it work in a way that those without the expansion can still enjoy the new additions without having to spend a dime, such as only using weapons dropped and armors locked behind the expansion, etc. This is for concerns being raised about dividing the playerbase due to a paywall, that would be a shame.


We are focusing on providing free content to Mordhau for now - we don't have plans for DLC or any extra monetization at this current point in time.

What happened with Grator? Last message of him was sent on 29th of September :(

He's around still, just taking a bit of a break from the Discord.

It's definitely a display issue. It happens reliably too. If you go up a rank by just 1 or 2 points, it doesn't display the new one (if your mmr is xx00 or xx01) and the same happens if you go down a rank by one point (xx99).

But once you leave the server, the correct rank is displayed.

Yeah, seems like that. We actually can't produce it ourselves but we're still investigating. IMO It's not a huge deal since you will probably play another game, and the MMR is what's important for the match, not the rank icon. And it seems to be temporary as well.


Seems to be a display issue, but can look into it. <3

When do they post?
