Rebels are a short step up from looters and bandits and are found in With Fire & Sword. They spawn in groups of 3-60.


Although similar in their quality to their counterparts, they are somewhat dangerous to new players. They have little armour and poor weapons, and an experienced, well-equipped player can easily do away with them.

They wear very light armour, making them vulnerable to missiles and melee attacks, though they may also use handmade firearms, making them dangerous in large numbers to any player, rookie or veteran. With a large, well-equipped party, they do not pose a significant threat and can be cut down very easily.

Rebels attack you head on, en masse if their numbers are large enough. The "marksmen" with the handmade firearms shoot at you from a distance while their "infantry" armed with axes or lances, charge. If the marksmen are attacked with melee attacks, they'll do the same with short carpenter axes. You can circle them and shoot at them, for they are never mounted. Rebels also love to use numbers to their advantage, and will swarm straggling troops. Make sure this doesn't happen to you if you're just starting out on the game!
