One of the best games I ever played is the first Chivalry and I couldn’t be more excited for the release of Chivalry 2. Based on my experience with the first game and some time I have spent playing Chivalry 2, I have compiled some helpful tips to get you started. This Chivalry 2 beginner’s guide will get you started on the right foot.
Chivalry 2 Beginner’s Tips and Tricks
The most complex part of the game is its combat system so it is best that we start by discussing it first.
The Basics of Combat
The basics of its attack system revolve around the dash, quick stab, or perform a killer overhead attack. Master the parry system because you’re gonna be using it a lot. Parry is done through the right mouse button. However, you must know that parrying also drains your stamina but you can use this to your advantage. You can actually drain a blocking enemy’s stamina with ease.
While that is a great move, an even better one is to simply break your enemy’s defense with a swift kick. From there, you can land a few attacks to create a combo. Don’t get greedy though as it can backfire.
Studying your enemy’s attack is important as it allows you to copy the attack type.
Practice Makes All the Difference
There is more than one game mode in Chivalry 2 and some of them are great to practice your combat skills. I highly recommend playing free for all game mode. It is perfect to practice your Chivalry 2 combat skills. You can test different classes, builds, and weapons. Once you get a hang of things, you can jump into 64 and 48-player game modes.
Figure Out Your Enemy’s Class
One of the key components of success in Chivalry 2 comes from understanding what class your enemy is using. It is important to know the strengths and weaknesses. Some class weapons do more damage to certain classes. An example of this is the Vanguard’s Dane Axe dose 30% additional damage to Knights while it does 21% additional damage to Footmen.
You Can Throw Chickens
Press G to throw in Chivalry 2 but what are you going to throw, you ask? Well, there is a range of different weapons you can throw at enemies but none is more fun than a chicken which is among the random items you can throw at enemies. But fun aside, the most effective items are knives, oil pots, and you can even throw your primary or secondary weapons. In fact, you can pick up weapons from dead bodies and throw them at other enemies.
Avoid Getting Surrounded
The battle can get really intense in Chivalry 2. There are people are around you but if you get yourself surrounded, you’re dead. So how to counter this? Don’t wander off on your on. Stay with your team for your best chance of surviving.
And that’s all the Chivalry 2 tips and tricks you need to get yourself started.
