Use ready-made characters
At the beginning of the game you can create your warrior, but it's a better idea to try out an already-made character. You won't have a lot of gold when the game starts. So, you won't be able to purchase good equipment. In addition, by selecting already-made warriors, you can test different types of weapons. The game offers several characters - each specializing in something else, so you can check which role suits you best. After testing a shield, two-handed weapon, or a bow, you can more easily determine which weapons and perks to buy for your own warrior.

Remember that your attacks deal damage to your allies.
Before entering the battlefield, you must know that your attacks deal damage to your allies. You have to be careful not to hurt your team members while trying to kill the enemy. The teams are divided into two colors - red and blue. Thus, the players of your team are also marked. However, if during the battle it will be difficult to determine the color of the warrior, you can aim on him with your crosshair - then you will see his nickname and information, whether it is an enemy or an ally.
Constantly move on the battlefield
In Mordhau, the action never stops. You must be aware of the constant movement on the battlefield - otherwise you will be quickly surrounded and attacked in the back. You should also look around and observe current positions of opponents. Running into a group of enemies will end in instant death, so try to avoid a situation where you encounter several opponents.
Despite your best efforts, you will be forced to fight a terrifying number of enemies. Because of this, it is worth a look at the "How to deal with multiple opponents?" section of our guide.
Help your allies
If you participate in team matches, you must remember that the key to victory is cooperation with allies. Try to help them and attack enemies together - it is much easier to defeat the enemy if you are in a party. If you see a duel between your ally and the enemy - attack the opponent in the back. This way you will quickly get rid of your opponent. In the case of the Frontline mode, you should capture and attack important map points together with your allies.
