Mordhau's latest update will give you one more reason to revisit the game. The multiplayer-only hack-and-slash game received a small update yesterday. It added two time-limited cosmetics to the game. You can equip Candy Cane – Heavy Branch skin and Christmas Ornament - Firebomb skin. Do it fast though, they aren’t gonna stick around for long.

That’s all about the new content for this update. Rests of the changes are balancing tweaks for combat, weapon, and equipment, along with some minor bug fixes.

Patch #20 Hotfix 2 Changelog


  • Nobles no longer have clash on parry and chip damage across the board, making them less annoying to fight
  • Castello nobles now take more melee damage

  • Grad Executioner noble now takes more melee damage
  • Mountain peak noble now takes slightly more melee damage
