Mordhau might well have paved the way for another step in the evolution of Twitch cooking streams, after a clip of some unbelievable gameplay went viral on the platform.
The multiplayer medieval slasher burst onto the scene in April of 2019 and has since been played by the likes of Jaryd ‘summit1g‘ Lazar, Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek, and a whole host of other popular streamers.
This streamer’s frying pan has proved to be a deadly weapon in Mordhau.
The clip shows that streamer ‘Rudeism’ has hooked up an actual frying pan to his PC as a controller, which allows him to control the kitchen utensil in-game. In a post to Reddit he admits the controller was first made for Dark Souls, but also works in Mordhau.
Using the foreign object (and that’s putting it kindly), the gamer managed to fend off a few strong shots from an enemy, before clubbing back and landing some heavy shots to their head.
The other player realizes that they’re not going to have much luck in the bout, scarpering across a bridge in an attempt to escape. However, Rudeism wasn’t going to allow them to get away so easily, tossing the pan in their direction and hitting a clean headshot, which sent him into raptures.
The bizarreness of the highlight has led to viral success for the streamer, racking up over 150,000 at the time of writing, after being first clipped on June 5.
There’s no real way of seeing whether or not the deadly pan toss was just clean enough to have been a fatal blow at any stage of the game, or whether he had worn him down enough beforehand to make it a final blow, but the style of the elimination is what has attracted attention here for sure.
Rainbow Six: Siege’s Y5S4.3 patch has dropped, and it changes quite a bit. Zofia and Ash have copped a nerf, much to the player base’s delight, and Echo has been buffed.
Rainbow Six hasn’t had the most balanced meta for a while. However, Ubisoft has been hard at work trying to refine it, and they’ve come up with the goods in Rainbow Six’s Y5S4.3 patch.
Players will be pleased to know that their prayers have been answered. Zofia lost her maligned Withstand ability and received two other nerfs as a part of the balance changes.
But that’s not all. Ubisoft swung down the nerf axe on Ash as well while breathing some life back into Echo. Here’s everything you need to know, including a full list of patch notes which detail all the other changes, too.
Ubisoft dropped all the details about Rainbow Six’s Y5S4.3 Patch in their designer notes.
Zofia loses Withstand after Rainbow Six player appeal
Zofia has been powerful and controversial in the latest meta, and it’s all thanks to her ‘Withstand’ ability. What made it so overpowered is that it let her revive herself from a ‘Dead But Not Out’ state.
The ability played a major role in the EU League finals. A good example was when an injured Yuzus used it to turn the tide against two opponents and clutch a win for MNM Gaming.
It was an impressive play. However, it’s one of many examples that demonstrate how absurd the Withstand ability was. Fortunately, it has been removed in Rainbow Six’s Y5S4.3 patch, and it probably won’t be back anytime soon.
It’s not a major nerf by any means. However, it will undoubtedly make her less effective to an extent. Ash players will need to be more calculated and precise, especially in vertical battles.
Ash’s Breaching Rounds have been slightly nerfed in the latest patch.
Echo is cool again with better cooldowns
Echo isn’t the strongest operator by any stretch of the imagination. However, the latest patch has been kind to him. It introduces three buffs that revolve around his cooldowns, and together, they help make him slightly more balanced.
The jump cooldown on the Yokai Drone has been reduced from three seconds to two seconds. It also detaches from inappropriate surfaces much faster. It used to take two seconds, but now it only takes half a second.
The biggest change, though, is that the cooldown on Sonic Burst has been reduced from 20 seconds to 16 seconds. Hopefully, these changes will make him a more viable choice for players, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Echo will benefit from reduced cooldowns in Rainbow Six’s Y5S4.3 Patch.
The aforementioned bits and pieces are arguably the biggest changes in the patch. However, there’s also plenty of others in the full patch notes.
Here’s a complete list, courtesy of Ubisoft.
