    Okay this is simply getting ridiculous. I'm on the 8th level and I can't get to the 9th just because of my fucking asshole teammates taking off 90% of my health over time and I'm sure the other 10% is caused by them in some way or another. By the time the larger Sophits are around I've got no health left. There really needs to be a way to mod them out.

    Jesus fuck a teammate just held me in place while a large suicide bug blew us both up. This is unbelievably frustrating.

    Is there any way to change the config file to get all the weapons? Has anyone figured it out yet? I dropped the gun you get from the arena trials in the actual arena, and I think I've lost it :saddowns:

    I think it's a generally accepted fact that team mates in this game are the most frustrating and annoying feature ever
    As well as being a massive problem to start with, they also compound on most other problems

    This game is way more funnier if you mess around the save files.

    If you change m_weapon_lock to -1 in the default profile, you can make a new character and it will have all weapons.

    Most irritating video in the world. Too much spinning and pretty much zero hitting.

    The technique I tend to use with flails, is to be above the enemy, and fly down really fast, then just before I'm at the same altitude as the target, quickly go up, and the flail usually hits them really hard.

    I got this game with the bundle a couple days ago!

    I've been having quite a bit of fun with a heavy sword and a light mortar, but I'd really prefer that shotgun I lost early in the game. How do you get the other guns? Can you buy them at some point? Also is there a way to like choose which weapon you're buying? How do you get more gems? I bonded that bloody ruby to a stupid spiked hammer early in the game and I regret it now, as it'd do much better in a nothammer.

    Much appreciated.

    And no, I'm not turning down my DPI, this way is far more fun for me.

    That old fucking guy in the tunnels with the fire demon or w/e isn't throwing me any fucking barrels. First he threw one every time the level started before I even had a chance to move, but now he isn't even throwing me those. What the fuck's wrong with him?

    After 42 battles in the arena, my wonderful relic sword has finally seen enough blood. Loaded with a huge lightning gem and two ice gems, it knew no mercy. Its last moments were spent driving itself into an enemy so hard, the enemy exploded violently and the sword was ripped from my vehicle. As it soared away at 52 million miles per hour, it appeared as if it was finally at peace.

    That sword will be missed.

    I don't think you can get all of the guns in one save file without cheating. The guns you do get depend on the choices you make in the story, and you can't buy any of them. There's no way to choose what weapon to buy, and you get more gems through grim mode, which is unlocked by taking the hard path on the first choice.

    If you lose or restart you get it back.

    I'm at level 45 arena. About four enemies with those spammy cluster explosive launchers, caked in heavy armor.

    Also, the best weapon combo is the Strife coupled with the mortar, with three large rubies in it.

    Reading the Steam forums about this, I wonder how fucking hard is it to spin the fucking mouse? It's not a hard game to understand, you spin the mouse and the physics do the rest.

    Sure the game can get hard later on, but on the Steam forum people apparently can't get past a single copter enemy even after 5 hours.

    And if I remember correctly, Hammerfight (the current version) was made a lot easier than Hammerfall (the old beta).

    A lot of people are probably playing like that dude who made the shit review.

    They end up circling around the weapon rather than the other way around, then get all pissy when they can't hit anything that way.

    I also agree that the interface is awful. It took me ages to find my health. Third level into the game, and my enemies start shooting things at me and releasing poison gas, which I had no idea existed considering the game doesn't tell you about any weapons besides your hammer. This game has good ideas behind it, but it was executed terribly. Using WASD for movement would have solved all my problems with the controls, the interface could have used a smaller and more centralized health display as well as just being minimalized to the extreme, and the tutorial should have been a lot longer and should have explained the controls in full, instead of just telling you how to move and swing a hammer.
    That, is the result of modern spoonfeeding in games. Nearly all modern games make sure to have 500 arrows and flashing lights pointing out every single thing in the game.

    Seriously I can come up with around 2 pages of problems with Hammerfight (first and foremost those fucking explosives), but difficult controls and the game not spoiling itself wouldn't be on there.

    Seems so. What I don't understand is how people can't have an inbuilt sense of momentum and physics. I mean real life teaches you that.
    I can understand for the first hour, or when you are in a difficult position and lose control of it and end up spinning around your own weapon, but all the time?

    It definitely was, I remember the worm-caravan escort mission being a lot harder. Also that if your cloaks/clot-things caught on fire and you didn't move around like a cat on PCP, you'd catch fire and either lose 90% of your health or outright die without a fighting chance.

    Let's see how different it is now.

    Well, I beat the mission I was stuck on two years ago. It's not that different.

    The wooden dummy in the training hall exploded for no reason though:

    Hammerfall was much more difficult that Hammerfight.
    I almost completed Hammerfight while I was dead stuck at some tricky level in Hammerfall.

    Stabbing enemies is the best, instant kill on almost anything without armor plates.

    Either a smaller sword or a smaller gun.
    I prefer mini-shotgun or rocket launcher.

    Either another sword, or a flail. With a flail though the sword will probably become your secondary weapon (depends on the flail I guess, the Colossus with it's barbed chain makes the sword not so useful, because the same arc as the sword is covered by the barbed chain), but it will knock away incoming projectiles and act as extra armour.

    You're probably better off heeding someone else's advice though, never used dual-wielding much (except using a sword to complement a flail by functioning as extra armour and missile deflection system, hardly classify as dual wielding though).

    Edited:

    I really hope a Hammerfight 2 will be developed (it's hinted at in the final text screen). I'd love if it had more difficulty in the endgame and higher levels of Grim/Arena/Story (make the game start off like Hammerfight, but have it end up a lot more difficult in later stages). A difficulty that doesn't come from allies being assholes or explosives spam (I mean duelling a copter that, without explosives or guns, can properly kick my ass on it's own due to it being damn good). And of course all the expected things from a sequel such as more weapons, copter, levels and all that.
    Also the Hall should be redone, the weapon room is fine but the shops and such get pretty cluttered, especially when entering and exiting the shop is done by mouse clicks.

    I lost my spiked hammer because I didn't realize dropping weapons in a mission wouldn't bring them back to The Hall. Is there any way to get another, or one with superior stats but the same handling?

    Swords are good with axes and flails.

    With axes, you can use the sword as a primary weapon. Attaching them gives the sword a lot more momentum due to the axe counterweight. Stabbing also gets lethal because of the weight sitting behind the sword. When heavily armored enemies show up, you can hit them with the axe to stun them (they can't put up their armor while stunned) and follow up with the sword to wherever they are exposed. The playstyle takes a bit of skill though, as spinning around hitting shit as hard as possible is no good with that combination.

    With flails, as mentioned by an above poster, the sword becomes a secondary weapon. The steel whip is one of the most brutal flails around, it can absolutely fuck people's shit and unlike the colossus, is heavy. The colossus is sharp but it doesn't have a lot of brute smashing power, whereas the whip will fuck someone's shit and send them flying across the map. Adding a sword to it gives you some short range protection, as enemies can often get inside of the dead zone where flails aren't effective.

    Swords are also effective to use as armor. Large hammers do the best job at keeping you safe from attacks but fuck hammers. I fucking hate using hammers.

    Can someone help me? I tried the "fire shooting machine demon from hell" part again, and the old guy won't throw more than one barrel. I hit the barrel and the creature came down and flew off-screen so I couldn't fight it, but the old guy put 110% into the fight, off-screen as well. Then the creature rose up to his little place again, and started shooting. Then the old guy said "Catch!" but didn't throw anything.

    NEVERMIND IT WORKED!!

    Why? They are usually well balanced, have a predictable hit path, and work well against multiple weak foes and single strong foes alike. And, like you said, are great for parrying enemy attacks.

    Do I have to just keep buying weapons from the merchant? I got mine by disarming the guy in the arena.
