Chivalry 2 has a lot more to offer compared to the first game. As you and dozens of other players battle over zones of control, the bloody din of battle rings around you. You’re going to hear the grunts of exertion and the screams of pain that come along with medieval combat. And during all this, you can even brawl with your pals in the game. During all that chaos you will notice that you have a few different abilities, as well as classes
The class systems in the game allow players to pick from a few different classes, each one specialized in a certain archetype of combat. You might find some choices prioritize ranged support, so they have Archer and Vanguard abilities. A more tanky frontline fighter might be all about a mix of Vanguard and Knight attacks.
Each archetype class in the game has its own suite of abilities, and that also applies to special abilities in Chivalry 2. You want to be able to keep in the fight, so being able to recharge these techniques is very important. All your most devastating attacks are locked behind these cooldowns. In Chivalry 2, you will need to trigger the cooldowns to get your special attacks back. Here’s how to handle that.
