The Mugman Army Is No More Thanks to Recent Cuphead Patch

The Mugman Army… WE WANT YOU! Ok, well, we did…

Nothing makes a Cuphead boss fight easier than your own personal army of Mugmen. The ‘Mugman Army’ was the result of a hilarious exploit that allowed players to spawn Mugman numerous times while playing in multiplayer. Player two would repeatedly drop out of the game and rejoin as Mugman but instead of the original Mugman disappearing, he’d stick around while more and more Mugmen joined the fray. The end result? An endless army of your trusty pal, Mugman.

Sadly, the glitch is no more with the developers at Studio MDHR dropping Patch v1.1.3 onto Cuphead yesterday. The patch fixes various bugs and addresses prominent gameplay issues, which unfortunately includes doing away with the aforementioned army.
