Doing things factions dislike will give you the wanted criminal status in Mount & Blade 2 Bannerlord. Being a wanted criminal in a certain place will stop you from entering it, which means no trade or quests can be done there until you’ve cleared your name. There are several ways to do this – some are quick and costly, others more time-consuming yet cheap. If you’re wondering how to redeem yourself after having wronged someone, this guide will tell you all about the wanted criminal rating in Mount & Blade 2 Bannerlord and how to get rid of it.
How to get rid of criminal rating?
The quickest way to get rid of your wanted criminal status is by going to the place where you’re wanted and talk to the guards. Choose to discuss the terms of your surrender. Here you’ll get to pick the payment option – either the required sum of denars, or a pound of flesh, which will set your health points to one.
However, if you’re not in a hurry, or don’t have the cash and wouldn’t like to cut off a piece of your buttock in order to repay your debt to society, you can just wait. Your criminal rating decay over time, which means it’ll disappear entirely on its own, given enough time. We don’t know the exact rate of decay, but it goes down pretty fast.
How to see your wanted criminal rating?
If you have a wanted criminal rating in a town or castle, you can see it at the top of the town screen, where the statistics are. It’ll be listed next to a dagger icon. You can also see the same information in the encyclopedia entry of the place, directly below the name. Lastly, if the guards won’t let you enter a place, hovering over the greyed-out option will reveal whether it’s because of your wanted criminal status.
