Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Deserter Extortion Guide

Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Deserter Extortion Guide
An NPC asks you to wait in ambush but not much happens. This Mount & Blade II Bannerlord Deserter Extortion Guide covers a very specific side quest we encountered where a leader of a village asks you to protect his village from a band of raiders. He asks you to wait in the village until they arrive, warning you that if you leave, the village will fall.

For any caring adventurer, this would suggest that you do not leave the village. After all, you wouldn’t want the bandits to slip past you as you leave. However, that’s exactly what you must do. We received this quest in a very specific location however, it’s very likely that the structure of the quest and the objectives is used throughout many of the towns and villages, so it’s likely the same for each location.

After you obtain the quest, leave the village by holding Tab. Once you are back on the World Map, select the “Leave” option and then make sure the game is progressing through time – press the play button at the bottom of the screen. We do not suggest using the faster time option as it’s very possible the bandits will get past you and into the town before you can react.

After a few short moments, about 30 seconds, you should see a party of Deserters or other enemies nearby. You will know if they are tied to the specific quest as there will be a blue ! icon next to the party details of the enemy troops. It’s likely they will flee when they discover you so you will need to track them down. Don’t worry about leaving the village for a few moments. Track down the group, kill them, and then return to the same village to complete the quest and get your reward.
