One of the most complicated main quests in Kingdom Come: Deliverance is the Nest of Vipers quest, which will require you to scout the camp for bandits that attacked Neuhof.
You can do it safely and just gather information about the location of the camp and its inhabitants — or you could play the role of medieval saboteur. In any case, if you want to know how to finish this quest relatively easy, then follow the guide below.
The Location of the Bandit Camp
If you managed to finish the previous quest in the storyline, then you will exactly where to look for this bandit camp. If not, then go up to the very northern part of the map, to the town of Pribyslavitz, which is located to the north of Talmberg.
There you will see a marker leading to the woodcutters’ camp by the northern road from Talmberg. From there, go to the fork with the ruined cabin, then straight ahead to the next fork by the clearing with a big beech tree. After that, go straight at the crossroads by the flat rock.
After that, take the left path at the fork and carry on to the next fork. Again, take a left and carry on to the junction, and as you arrive at the crossroads, go straight to the camp.
Scout the Bandit Camp
At this point, you don’t have to cross the bridge or go into the heart of the camp and sabotage it. You can opt for a safer way and just walk around the camp checking out the area.
This will be sufficient enough for Sir Radzig to attack the camp. You can now go back to him and deliver the necessary information. However, if you want to make things more exciting, then you can either poison the bandits’ food and/or burn their arrows.
Sabotage the Bandit Camp
If you decided to sabotage the camp, then the first thing you need to do is wait for it to get dark. It will be far more difficult to notice you in the dark, especially if you manage to disguise yourself by wearing the Cuman armor.
In order to find the Cuman armor, you need to enter the hut at the entrance of the camp and unlock a chest inside. Put the armor on and carefully make your way to the church.
Enter the tent that stands in front of the church and take poison from the lockbox. Then, head to the north of the camp, where everyone rests. There you will find cauldrons with food, in which you can put your poison.
Lastly, look around the cauldrons and you will notice a barrel with arrows. Set it on fire. However, at this stage, you need to be extra careful and prepared to flee. The fire will alert the bandits and you may get yourself easily killed if you don’t escape the area in time.
Reporting to Sir Radzig
In order for the attack on the bandit camp to be successful, you need to report to Sir Radzig back at Talmberg in the exact order listed below:
- I’m back from scouting
- It’s in some overgrown ruins
- I tried to count them
- There’s a lot of them
- There are bandits there
- There are Cumans there
- Their arms and armor
- They’re well positioned
- They’re making some ladders in the camp
After that, you need to go to the Talmberg Castle and speak to Sir Divish about the upcoming attack. Your answers will either prompt the immediate attack on the camp, or give you a moment to prepare before the battle. The choice is yours.
