In this guide, we are going to go over how Initiative works in Chivalry 2 and how you can use it to win.
What You Need To Know About Initiative In Chivalry 2
Simply put, the player with Initiative needs to attack. The playing without it needs to get it back. If you want to get Initiative back what you need to do is block an incoming attack. Once you have done so and have got Initiative, you need to counterattack before losing it again.
You need to be ready for when your enemy has defended successfully and has gained initiative back. This means that you will be back to defending yourself rather than being on the offensive.
Note that if you people attack at the same time then the person that hits first is going to have the upper hand and will be able to continue with the combo.
