Squad size is vital when completing Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord. Below we will talk about all the ways to increase it. With us you will learn how to increase the army up to 200 units!
The quartermaster is the most important skill that directly affects the size of the group. Improving this setting is the easiest way to increase the size of a squad. Yes, and the skill itself sways easily! It is enough to make sure that your army has a variety of food and it does not need food. However, this is far from the only option!
There are a couple more ways to increase your army in Bannerlord. First, pay attention to the clan level. Press the L key to see the clan information screen. Each new clan level increases the army limit. For example, when upgrading a clan to level 3, you will receive +15 slots for the army. That is, you can add 15 soldiers and satellites. Since the clan’s level will gradually increase, the maximum squad size will also grow.
To raise a clan, you need fame. A lot of fame! We talk about this in detail in a separate guide to the game.
Now, if you managed to establish your own kingdom (near the end of the game), then you can get another, huge bonus. Once this happens, start fighting everyone and earn influence points. You need 50 points! After that, open the kingdom menu with the K key and select the policy tab. There is an option «Royal Guard». Choose it to instantly increase your army size by 80 units! Yes, yes, now you can hire 80 soldiers at once.
