Your Chivalry 2 Combat Cheat Sheet
Here are five quick tips for how to survive in the chaos of Chivalry 2’s sprawling 64-player battlefields:
- Attack as a group to make it easier to capture objectives!
- Force your foes’ heavy attacks to miss by strafing or backpedaling, then strike quickly as your enemy recovers.
- Time your attacks well! You are vulnerable during the recovery phase of attacks and cannot attack or parry.
- Only shields can block arrows or bolts. They’ll even block them when your shield is unequipped and on your back if you’re clever enough.
- Is your enemy running away like a coward? Try throwing your weapon!
Onward, brave knights! Let us fight for glory!
