I made a post about the javelin animations a while ago: basically it’s entirely pointless to wait through the re-arming animation when you can just cancel it.
One of the mods/admins told me that javelins were being worked on and should be fixed soon. It’s pretty vague, but at least I know they’re working on it. Chivalry is still basically a beta with new weapons/features being added and tweaked.
Unlocks are in, but they never considered adding perks or anything beyond being able to select your weapon.
And unlocks aren’t “better” weapons, they just have a more specialized role. The devs didn’t want any unfair advantages to new players versus those who’vep layed alot.
Lol speaking of weapons, I’ve been drooling over all that we have available. As for “better” weapons, I do recall veteran MAA’s running around and cracking skulls with the mace in the mod. I’m sure we’ll end up with certain “Favored” items here as well :P
I know I’m looking forward to the messer and grand mace though.
