Overview

A pantsless Frenchman who's as skilled with his Halberd as he is with his tear-inducing taunts. You'll be running for your mommy when his crossbow finishes you off, assuming you still have legs to run with after he's broken your knees with his mace.

Weapons
Halberd Mace and Buckler Crossbow

The Man-at-Arm's long pole comes equipped with a dangerously sharp metal head, which is very effective at turning opponents into flower food. His buckler may be small, but his mace can deal painfully heavy blows. The buckler provides just enough defense to close the gap on those annoying ranged opponents. Very similar to the Gestir's Shield and Langseax. This crossbow is quicker than the Archer's, but is also less powerful. That won't matter, because the Man-at-Arms prefers his battles up close and personal. The crossbow is mainly for picking off those enemies who would rather run than finish a good melee fight.
Damage: 75 (charged), 56 (not charged) Damage: 60 (charged), 40 (not charged) Damage (unaimed): 55 (far), 30 (close)
Shield Bash Damage: 10 (charged), 5 (not charged) Damage (aimed): 77 (far), 40 (close)
Headshot Damage (unaimed): 85 (far), 50 (close)
Headshot Damage (aimed): 105 (far), 70 (close)
Special attack: Fart Cloud
When your special meter is filled, remember your training and let the gas free. This green mist is known to choke enemies to death, while also giving the Man-at-Arms a boost in speed and damage. It's as though the smell of his own farts invigorates this smug fool! The Man-at-Arms can easily lock-down an area with this stinky cloud, but the speed boost also makes it easier to run to or from a battle.
Speed Boost: +45
Special Duration: 5 seconds
Fart cloud lifetime: 3 seconds
Enemy player symptoms: 120% damage income and unable to perform perfect parries

Trivia

  • The Man-at-Arms' voice actor Weaver, and Bingo Bango, who voices the Archer, the Skirmisher and the Gestir, are real life friends. It's likely that Bingo introduced Weaver to the PVKII Team at the time the class was in development.
  • The Man-at-Arms, like the Heavy Knight, is loosely based on a character from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail, specifically the French Taunter. Like the Black Knight (the Heavy Knight's influence) he's also performed by John Cleese. Many of MaA's taunts were taken from this character.
  • Also like the Heavy Knight, the Man-at-Arms was planned to have a flail like his PVK1 counterpart, but it was ultimately replaced by the mace, which was his primary weapon in the original mod while the halberd replaces its slot in PVKII.
  • The PVK1 mace lacked the buckler, which was added in PVKII for the sake of giving a bashing and parrying ability to the Man-at-Arms.
  • The Man-at-Arms is the first and so far the only class in the mod to have a unique model for its headgear. Because of this, there's a bug where sometimes the hat is completely missing. There are also many occasions where an Archer respawns with MaA's hat.
