spear

  1. Let's talk about the spears.

    Hello everyone! I want to start by saying that I love Bannerlord and Mount and Blade franchise as a whole. I played all variations of the game over the years. Only one single thing in this game makes me unhappy: underutilization of most important weapon on a battlefield – the spear...

    Breakable pikes/lances!

    Hi, I understand what i am raising is something a lot of people has tought about, and might be added, yet i just wanted to voice it since i feel it is very important for the balance of the game. Couching a lance has been in the game for a while, and it is arguable one of the most satisfying...

    Need More Info [1.6.1] Crash game on Horse Death with Infantry Lance

    Summary: I was calmly killing several Vlandian cavalrymen, when one of them triggered a strange message in an error dialog box. "Method not implemented for network message. event_type: 0" How to Reproduce: In multiplayer, stand still and let the horse charge at you. Scene Name (if related)...
  4. Should spear thrusts be enabled while blocking with shield?

    So I saw in a recent video made by 'Resonant' about the first mount and blade game and saw that the character automatically places his shield in front while thrusting. So if both player and AI are able to use spear thrusting animations while blocking with shield in front, wouldn't it make spears...

    BL Coding Is there no way to force troops in Bannerlord to use spears?

    As we know AI troops in Bannerlord prefer to use onehanded and two handed weapon when fighting other infantry. This has created a problem where Menavlion and pike wielding infantry units seldom use their main weapons. This is just silly. So my question is, is there a way to force the AI to use...

    The disappearance of kinetic energy of the horses

    When will you be able to solve the problem that spears stop the horses? This is really stupid. When a horse runs towards a soldier at a speed that humans cannot reach, the man simply raises his spear and reach it out,then all the kinetic energy of the horse disappears instantly. Do you think...

    The spears, man... Let's just make them viable.

    Hello there, do you have the time to talk about the spears? Well, it does feel a bit better than in Warband. I'll give you that. But it's still unusable if your opponent knows how to block on a less-than-average level. Let's discuss this. So this is what happened: I tried out using the spear...
  8. Resolved Weird and annoying "bug" around horsemen ai and 1h weapons while mounted.

    Hi there. This is my first post around here. Well, the thing is: Battanians horsemen (and now ive notice aserai elite horsemen too), while mounted, they refused to use their spears to make better charges, they keep using their axes like the madman they are. I thought their 1h weapons are like a...

    Pike brace does not rear horses, does too little damage.

    I've been testing pike bracing and honestly I'm surprised this feature even got past testing stage. It has been implemented terribly. Not only it does not kill a horse charging me full speed, it doesn't even rear the horse. Think about it, even a normal spear hit can rear a horse but a big ass...

    Spear review and spear mechanic proposal/suggestion

    My review of spear: After playing 80 hours of using only spear in Bannerlord, I think I have the right to say that it sucks. You will have a better time using any weapon other than 2 handed spear or a spear and shield. Playing as a spearman requires you to learn mechanics that other weapons...

    Spear Thrust While Blocking with Shield on Foot

    I mean spears are currently a little bit weak and even i'm telling this when i'm not really fan of spears. You can consider to allow thrust attacks with spears while blocking a direction with shield. This will bring new balance problems of course. Spearmen will be more defensive aganist ranged...

    Suggestion For Only Thrust Action Polearm Rounds in Arena

    You can consider to change 1 vs 1 rounds with only thrust action weapons. My suggestion is Glaive without shield for khuzait arena rounds and one handed and two handed axes for sturgian arena rounds.
  14. Why are spears so limited compared to other weapons?

    Hello, since i started to play multiplayer, i try to "git gudd" with spears. But to be honest, most of the time it feels like i have a lot more disadvantages, as with any other weapon. I mostly talk about wielding the spear with 2 hands. First of all: Why am i not able to attack to the left or...

    changes that might fix the spear and pike issue

    *EDIT: the short conclusion: -> AI-change: "respect of pikes" no one runs into a wall of pikes, horses and troops slow down / change direction -> 1 line of pike man: lances straight out, high aiming correction for close targets -> 2 lines of pike man: 1st row -> lances straight out, 2nd row ->...

    Add weapon choice commands to allow AI to choose between polearms and 1h/2h weapons.

    Posted about this back in beta but the game still really needs a way for the player to be able to manually control the weapon choice of the AI under their command. Currently troops will automatically use 1h or 2h weapons on foot if there are no cavalry around. It would be much better if the...
  17. Spears should be viable melee weapons

    [1.2.1] Throwing weapons

    Weapons intended for throwing, most notably the ash throwing spear, are too powerful in melee. I first noticed this when creating a mod for singleplayer. The algorithm that demetimines the stats makes it hard to balance both the melee and throwing properties of a weapon, since it uses the same...
  19. Resolved Cavalry and couch lance

    Hello everyone! I have a big problem. No one except me can't do the couch lance (spear attack by pressing X). In my party I have 4 companions with horse and spear like I have and 40 units of Vlandian Knights. After I command to Charge (F1+F3) all of them pick up spear, run to enemy and attack...
