In Mordhau, all of your actions are performed using PC controls. Note that you do have the option to use a USB game controller to play Mordhau on PC, though we personally feel you lose a lot of precision in combat when playing with a controller. By default, Mordhau is played with your mouse and keyboard. Below, we’ve listed all of the PC controls in Mordhau.
