Horde is a game mode in Mordhau.

In-Game Description[edit | edit source]

Survive against increasingly difficult waves of AI enemies while purchasing equipment scattered around the map.

The Horde game mode consists of the player and friends (or random people) fighting large hordes of enemies, there are 21 rounds and a multitude of different enemies. In the beginning players will have to run around the map to find weapons to purchase, the weapon stays in the same place and doesn't change. To purchase the weapons the players will have to fight to gain money, they also receive money at the end of the round even if they die. On death players will be put into a spectate mode and if the round doesn't end they will re-spawn with all their weapons and armor. When all players are killed the round ends, if they survive round 21 they win.


Remember that it is only possible to regenerate health in this gamemode via melee kills, so you may have to bring bandages or a medkit with you.


Enemies[edit | edit source]

In horde there are many different types of enemies that have different armor, weapons, and even skill.

Peasants[edit | edit source]

At the start of every round there are usually peasants, they are lightly armored will nothing some times, they are the cannon fodder of horde and can quickly overwhelm you but with a good weapon most die in one hit. Their skill is rather low, they rarely parry and kick and aren't to bright. Their armor is normally tan and has no distinct features.

They use farming implements and their fists, to be specific.

  • Scythe
  • Sickle
  • Sledgehammer
  • Rake
  • Rusty Shovels
  • Rusty Fork
  • Fists
  • Heavy Branch

Some of the peasants are also capable of wielding a Heater Shield on top of a singlehanded weapon.

There is also a ranged variation of the Peasant that seems to never run out of rocks. Note that you can pick these up, saving 5 gold on buying a fresh bundle of rocks.

Thieves[edit | edit source]

Normally seen later in the rounds are thieves, they're quick hooded figures that walk straight at you and attack, they barely parry and swing wildly. For weapons they don't have anything heavy or devastating and mostly use knives. They have no heavy armor and wear light armor that's either dark green or a mix of tan and white.

  • Carving Knife
  • Dagger
  • Throwing Knives
  • Smoke Bombs
  • Quarterstaff
  • Fists

Sell-swords[edit | edit source]

Seen about the same time Thieves are seen they have no substantial armor and have mediocre weapons. They wear dark clothes and have tier 1 armor. They parry more frequently than other enemies and have a better handling on weapons and attack more frequently too.

  • Messer
  • Cleaver
  • Arming Sword
  • Short Sword
  • Falchion
  • Warhammer
  • Axe

Some sell-swords can be found wielding longer melee weapons.

  • Billhook
  • War Axe
  • Messer

Archers[edit | edit source]

Ranged units that appear alongside the Sell-swords. They can be seen wearing full green light armor, and wield bows. They usually have a small melee weapon in case any player steps into their melee range.

  • Recurve Bow
  • Dagger
  • Short Sword
  • Fists

Nobles[edit | edit source]

Appears in middle waves, they can be easily identified thanks to them wearing bright colors (compared to other enemies) such as red, white, yellow, light green, etc. They can be seen wielding the longest melee weapons.

  • Spear
  • Poleaxe
  • Polehammer
  • Bardiche
  • Zweihander

Soldiers[edit | edit source]

Appears in the middle waves replacing the cannon fodder that is to say the Peasants and Sellswords. They are clad in medium armor and wield an assortment of both short and long melee weapons.

  • Mace
  • Arming Sword
  • Bastard Sword
  • Longsword
  • Short Spear
  • Messer
  • Eveningstar
  • Maul
  • Battleaxe
  • War Axe

There are some soldiers that use ranged weapons and they can be usually be identified thanks to the Pavis Shields they are wearing on their backs. If they only came to the battle with a ranged weapon, stepping into their melee range will result in them raising their fists to attempt to fight.

  • Pavise Shield
  • Crossbow
  • Longbow
  • Short Sword
  • Fists

Raiders[edit | edit source]

Appears in the middle waves replacing the thieves. They can be identified by them wearing medium armor with no helmets, showing a rugged face clad in bandages. By replacing the thieves, they can be seen bringing both throwing and melee weapons; usually any weapon with "axe" in it (save for the Poleaxe). They can seldom be seen using their fists for some reason.

  • Axe
  • Throwing Axes
  • War Axe
  • Battleaxe

Knights[edit | edit source]

The last of the cannon fodder to be experienced, they appear in the later waves (usually around Wave 15). They are clad in Heavy Armor and they wield long melee weapons. They are also observed to have better attack and defense patterns and can be found rushing towards the nearest player.

  • Longsword
  • Bastard Sword
  • Estoc
  • Zweihander
  • Falx

There is a variation of the Knight that uses a shield. They can be found wearing red and appears in the same waves as their fellow knights.

  • Kite Shield
  • Short Sword

Tomatoes[edit | edit source]

Only appears in the last waves (From Wave 19), Tomatoes, also known as Yeets, Patchies, or Heep Whitacre are incredibly easy to identify by their short, wide bodies, bright red clothing, and green helmets, making them resemble tomatoes. They do almost nothing but throw firebombs at players, which can create a lot of chaos, especially if multiple appear in a single group.

  • Unlimited amount of firebombs
  • Axe

Note that their Firebombs do not deal any damage to their allies.

Bosses[edit | edit source]

Juggernauts[edit | edit source]

Juggernauts are incredibly powerful Boss enemies, clad in a full set of black heavy armor and taking far less damage from attacks than normal. They also bear a deadly Great Maul, which can easily kill a player in one or two hits. Thankfully, they only spawn in the middle to late waves, and there are usually only one or two present at a time. Strangely enough, the Juggernauts will only attack the players if they try to attack them first so this may be used against them.

  • Great Maul

Ogres[edit | edit source]

Boss enemies in the same vein as Juggernauts, Ogres are shirtless brutes that are much larger than the average enemy, while barely taking any damage from most attacks and easily one-shotting even heavily armored players with their clubs. One major weakness they possess, however, is their incredibly slow movement speed, as well as the fact that only one will spawn per wave, usually. The safest way to take down a giant is to abuse its slow movement, staying far away from it while dealing with the other enemies first, then pestering it with firebombs and ranged weapons without ever letting it get close enough to swing at you. Keep in mind that parrying or performing any sort of chamber attacks will force the player to ragdoll, leaving them vulnerable to their next hit and ultimately, their finishing blow.

  • Ogre Club

Seymour[edit | edit source]

Spawns on the Last Wave (Wave 21), he carries a longsword and only a helmet with shorts. Don't be fooled by his lack of armor because he can force the player to ragdoll upon hit, cannot be stunned, will damage the player when his attacks are parried

and has a very large health pool, making him the hardest enemy to defeat.
