Cuphead's "Cupdate" Brings All Manner Of Fixes

By Andy Mills, 10 months ago
Ever since Cuphead's release back in September, developer Studio MDHR has remained hard at work on the beautiful shoot 'em up. They've been working on the game's latest "Cupdate", as it is affectionately known as, which brings all manner of fixes to the game.


Perhaps most notable amongst the lengthy list of bug squashing, exploit fixing and gameplay balances is the removal of the Mugman Army glitch which allowed players to have quite the number of Mugmans (Mugmen?) on the screen at any one time. The full patch notes are below:

  • Fixed various freezes caused by controller disconnection/re-connection
  • Fixed infinite controller rumble bug
  • Fixed various freezes and soft-locks and crashes
  • Improvements to saving and loading
  • No longer possible to create a Mugman army.
  • Fixed rapid-weapon-swap damage glitch
  • Slight charge weapon damage reduction
  • Charge weapon charge is now maintained during parry
  • It is now possible to unequip secondary weapon, Super, and Charm from equipment menu (Press “Y” to unequip)
  • Mr. Chimes no longer gets stuck or goes off-screen
  • King Dice’s Start Over square will now only trigger once per attempt
  • Player 2 now appears in the King Dice board after being revived at the end of a mini-boss level
  • Dice Palace score now properly resets when retrying the level
  • Fixed improper hit boxes on the Devil’s snake attack
  • Fixed Devil’s goat attack so it hits ducking players
  • Elevator on Rugged Ridge no longer locks if Player 1 dies
  • A+ grade now possible on Funfair Fever and Treetop Trouble
  • No longer possible to damage bosses that are off-screen
  • Fixed rare crash when parrying on Carnival Kerfuffle
  • Fixed Roundabout shots not coming back on screen on select stages
  • Baroness Von Bon Bon death results now properly displays progress on phase 3
  • Dr. Kahl’s Robot death results now properly displays progress on phase 1
  • Fixed various minor collision bugs
  • Various art and animation polish
  • Minor sound effect bug fixes and polish
  • Added spooky Mausoleum announcer
  • Touch fuzzy, get a little dizzy
If it hasn't already downloaded, the "Cupdate" should be available next time players boot up Cuphead.
