Keybinds, Controls & Graphics Guide

Keybinds and Controls

Mordhau’s default control scheme aka “240 system” isn’t great coming from chivalry or as a new player, it’s quite unintuitive IMO.

In order to disable the 240 control scheme:

  • Go to “controls” – > uncheck all tickboxes

Under keybinds change the following:

  • Feint – Q
  • Right mouse button – Parry
  • Right strike – left mouse button
  • Fire – Left mouse button (make sure this is bound or you cant spawn dont overwrite above)
  • Left upper strike – Thumb mouse button if you have one
  • Left lower strike – Thumb mouse button if you have one
  • Flip attack side – Left Alt


Depending on FPS you may want to tweak you graphics settings. Personally, I play on mostly low settings to achieve maximum FPS – especially in Frontlines.

Under the “Game” tab:

  • Head bob – 0
  • Ragdoll limit – Lower is better. I use 3
  • Ragdoll stay time – Lower is better. I use 3

Under the “Video” tab:

Anything with [IMPORTANT] has a big impact on FPS or visibility

DISABLE V-SYNC – Even if you have a 60Hz Monitor you should always be aiming for 120fps

  • Resolution Scale – Adjust this based on FPS. If you are getting enough FPS you can turn this up to 1.1 or 1.2 for a sharper picture. Leave on 1 if not getting consistant frames or on Frontlines
  • Frame rate limit – 120 if on a 60Hz monitor, 143 on a 144hz monitor. Lower based on framerate (if you’re getting 54 FPS max then make it 50 for example)
  • Field of View – 101, obviously
  • Antia-aliasing – FXAA or Off (especially if using higher than 1 screenscale) [IMPORTANT]
  • Texture quality – Adjust based on GPU VRAM size (6gb+ = Ultra) (4gb = High) etc.
  • Effects – Low
  • Shadow Quality – Low (Medium is fine, again I use for FPS)
  • Indirect Shadows – Off
  • View Distance – Low
  • Post process – Low [IMPORTANT]
  • Foliage Density – Low [IMPORTANT]
  • Character Qaulity – Low
  • Character Cloth – No Cloth [IMPORTANT]
  • Ragdoll Qaulity – Low [IMPORTANT]
  • Screenspace Reflections – Off [IMPORTANT]
  • Motion Blur – Off [IMPORTANT]
  • Bloom – Off [IMPORTANT]
  • Ambient Occlusion – Off [IMPORTANT]
  • Lens Flares – Off [IMPORTANT]

Still Getting Low FPS

Removing Shadows

Make sure you have followed the above graphics settings to your liking before doing the bellow as you cannot update graphics setting in-game after this.. 

  • press windows key + R -> type %appdata% -> press OK
  • Exit /Roaming then into /AppData -> go to Local/Mordhau/Saved/Config/WindowsClient/ open GameUserSettings.ini
  • CNTRL + F and look for sg.ShadowQuality=1 change to sg.ShadowQuality=0
  • Save, go to .ini file -> right click -> properties -> set to “Read Only”Using this method will not work with Mordhau open, make sure it is closed with the desired graphics settings already saved.


  • Under manage 3d settings -> program settings -> add mordhau, -> set virtually pre-rendered frames to 2 or 3 (higher = more FPS but also more input lag)
  • Power management mode – Prefer maximum performance
  • Texture Quality – Performance
  • V-Sync – Off
  • Anti-Aliasing – Off
  • Make sure drivers are up to dateONLY USE IF GETTING BAD FPS 
  • Open Console
  • type r.MipMapLodBias 4 (0-100, 10 being worst looking but best FPS)
  • type r.skeletalmeshlodbias 100 (0-100, 100 being worst looking but best FPS)
