Vaegir Veterans are troops of the Kingdom of Vaegirs. Although classified as infantry, they may also have mounted troops amongst their ranks. If they are dismounted, they will not be able to remount any horses as they do not have any points in their riding skill.

They are some of the first troop types in Mount&Blade, dating as far back as Warrider in 2003.


Vaegir Veterans can serve as early cavalry, but if you are facing a force over twenty and you only have a few mounted Veterans as your cavalry, tell your men to stand ground or hold position before allowing them to charge. This prevents your mounted Veterans from rushing into the enemy all by themselves and getting clustered and killed. However, even when put into danger, Vaegir Veterans rival the strength of Nordic troops of the same tier and possess powerful weaponry.

Like all Vaegir units, they are a great threat to anything without a shield (which is ironic, as most Vaegirs have no shields). They use powerful two-handed axes which destroy any shield regardless. However, they lack shield defense themselves, spawning with inadequate shields. Nevertheless, their decent armor and consistently effective axes balance them with most other troops in their tier.
