Tatar Raiders are bandits in With Fire & Sword which are similar to the Steppe Bandits of Warband in that they're mounted and roam around the area of the Crimean Khanate. They spawn in groups ranging from 3-60.


Tatar Raiders should not be encountered by new or inexperienced players. They are mounted and use tactics similar to the Crimeans; hit-and-run tactics with bows and arrows or charging straight towards you with spears and sabers. They usually attack small groups of Farmers, scouts, and foragers, but will target you too if your party is rather small.

The prevalence of Tatar Raiders makes traveling in the lands of the Crimean Khanate dangerous to new and low-level players. Typically, new players do not have enough cavalry, horses or path-finding skill to outrun the mounted raiders, nor the means to defeat them in battle. Once the player has acquired a party of 15-20, Tatar Raiders will run away from your party, making access to lucrative trading routes to Azaq-kale and Bahkchisaray (and respectively, the general Crimean area) much safer.
