Mount and Blade Bannerlord “The Spy Among Us”
To complete The Spy Among Us quest in Mount and Blade Bannerlord, obtain The Spy Among Us quest from a Lord. Then, visit the Town where the tournament is being held, interrogate the villagers, select the correct tournament Contender, and challenge them to a duel. Once you complete the duel, you’ll gain some reputation with that Lord and some Denars.
See below for an in-depth guide on each aspect of The Spy Among Us quest in Bannerlord.
Obtaining The Spy Among Us Quest
Interact with the Lord and select the option “I heard you may need some help with a problem?” The Lord will then tell you a story about the tournament and a Spy they want you to route out from a group of tournament Contenders. Once you accept the quest, the Town will be marked on the campaign map. Travel there to start the quest.
To interrogate Villagers for The Spy Among Us quest:
- Walk up to Townspeople and interact with them to start a conversation.
- Select the option to ask them about people entering the tournament. If the Villager has the information, they’ll give you a detail about the Spy.
- Collect 3 details, and you’ll have enough information to choose the right person and challenge them to a duel.
Many Townspeople will have no information for you, so this part of the quest is largely trial and error. Keep dedicated, though. Eventually, you’ll find the right people!
Finding The Spy
Once you collect your three details, hit the Alt key to reveal the tournament participants. There should be around 4 people that can be the Spy. These suspects will be marked with blue exclamation marks with symbols around them.
Hit J to bring up your Quests so you can see the different clues about who the Spy is. Examine the suspects closely and then interact with the person that meets all 3 of the clues you gathered earlier. Finally, accuse the Contender of being the Spy and challenge this person to a duel. Doing so will advance you to the next part of the quest.
Defeating the Spy
The Spy is a powerful foe with a ton of health and decent equipment. Luckily, this is a 1-on-1 duel, so you can use superior positioning and movement to bait the AI to attack you, then counter-attack as fast as possible.
If you’re not great at combat, you should wait till you have some decent armor and weapons to take on The Spy, as they can hit hard and end up knocking you out.
You will enter the duel with the weapons you have equipped on your Inventory screen. You start rather far away, so use any ranged weapons you have to lower The Spy’s health before moving in and facing him in melee combat.
Finally, once in pitched battle, back up and circle the enemy while blocking, then try to counter-attack in a direction away from their shield. You may have to hit them several times to be fully knocked out. Try to hit areas that are left exposed by a lack of armor.
And there you have it! Hopefully, this guide helped you figure out how to complete The Spy Among Us quest in Mount and Blade Bannerlord.
