Multiplayer monster hunter Dauntless is taking its first steps to a new and improved combat system — and hammer-using warriors are going to be among the first to experience the coming glory.
Last week, the team explained that it is reworking weapons one at a time in an attempt to provide more diversity and options during combat: “We’re ready to build upon that groundwork and revisit each of the weapons, focusing in on what makes it special and how to reward mastery. This means expanding the available list of moves, branching out with combos, and evolving special attacks.”
This week’s Closed Beta 0.2.6 adds dodge attacks to hammer and chain blades, introduces the Quillshot armor set, and gave swords (this is true) more “whooshy” audio sounds while they are swung. Also: “New Seagull model. SCRAAAAWWWWW!”
