Completely impossible to escape 3 bowmen on horse at start


I did it on the first try… All I can say is git gud lol.


first try I died, but I learnt the horse controls needed remapping, even though I had to remap everything for left hand mouse use anyway (I am right handed BTW).

I would suggest for mouse and WASD keyboard plays that you map right-shift and right-control keys as the secondary “run” and secondary “forward” keys, you can then steer with your one hand and control forward speed with the other hand.

(if you are a LH mouse user and use the arrow keys, then map left-shift and left-control to “run” and “forward” as secondary keys).

BTW, if you mount the horse and your view is a bit off-centre, don’t worry as when you start to run and make a slight left and right turn with A &D or left & right arrow keys it will centre the view.


I still think that is is a bug that people like me and the first poster encounter, i tried this about 30 times .
I cannot make to the next script scene Talmberg like many other players.
This whole so called game is abig mess, nothing else.


Lol this is nuts, cant wait to try


That always works.


SPOILER----- It is not that difficult. After you reach the mill, hit a cuman with the sword, whistle, mount the horse, be sure you gallop and stay on the road. If you go in the creek you will die. After you cross the second bridge in Rovna take the road that veers left, gallop faster and watch your horse stamina, slow down and speed up again. It is vital you stay on the road. After you get close to Talmberg you will get to the cutscene and viola, done.


Whilst I appreciate this comment (didnt expect I could whistle for an unknown horse to come closer to me!)

  • the fame version we are playing now is so different to what has been before.

Warhorse listened to many complaints about run button locations and controller sensitivity and button mappings (and offered solutions in various forms, noticably improving controls whilst running etc).

It all adds up to a more consistant game experience.

On launch- that gallop was noticably harder to pull off.
The fact my girlfriend nailed it (new to analogue controllers and 3D games) tells me it is tuned to be difficult yet reasonable.

It is a great way to feel adrenalin and set players up with understanding that without quickkey constant save options some game play will likely be redone.

Sure the game is a little on rails till after the credits roll.
Once they have… GAME ON!


zig zag when your horse run out of stamina


I am having the same problem!

In my first playthrough I did it first time, however I have just started my HARDCORE playthrough and I’m having trouble.

The only problem is the horse stamina runs out and the chasers hit me with arrows, killing me. It is very difficult to judge stamina because in HARDCORE there are no indicators.

My only chance, as I see it now, is to find a cheeky shortcut, because my horse starts running out of stamina as it climbs the hill to Talmberg and there’s still a fair way to go. Any hints would be much appreciated!


While galloping, try staying on the road as much as you can, ride in a straight line if possible ( turning or adjusting direction too much seems to use some stamina) and avoid jumping over obstacles.

In hardcore mode, listen to your horse respiration. It will get heavier the more exhausted he is. And anyway, he will agitate his head once stamina runs out. That is when you stop galloping for a few seconds, maybe 5. No need for a longer break.

As for arrows, keep looking behind you once in a while to see if the Cubans are aiming a shot. That’s when you can try a few zigzag to force a missed shot.


Don’t be a pussy.
Steal a bow from a guard in Skalitz.
Train on sheeps.
With strength 3 you shall be able to dismount Cumans chasing you. They fall off just after 1st hit.
Ride to Talmberk like a king!


Thanks, guys.

I actually managed it by cutting across the grass, basically going in as straight a line as possible, and doing as you said ‘stop galloping for a few seconds’ every time my horse started to breathe heavy.
