Khergit Tribesmen are troops of the Khergit Khanate.

In the original Mount&Blade, Khergit Tribesmen often (but not always) came mounted, however they are never mounted in Warband. They are the only recruit level unit that can use a bow.


The best tactic is to upgrade these units as soon as possible. They are terrible at fighting, and Khergit cavalry are far more useful than Tribesmen. They are often armed with a club, which makes them suitable for capturing enemies for ransom, but their fragility makes this risky.

However, they do have ranged advantages against Looters. Also, being the only infantry of the Khergit Khanate, they are good for luring enemy troops into premeditated traps and have a mobility advantage against cavalry in hilly terrain. Most importantly, there are many Khergit villages and these men will quickly upgrade to Skirmishers.

Khergit Tribesmen are the most well-armored recruit-tier unit, being the only recruits to wear basic armor rather than common peasant clothing.
