Bannerlord - Criminal Rating Explained; How to Get Rid of It

Have you thought about a career as a villain in Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord? If so, in this guide you will learn everything important about criminal rating.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is a sandbox that combines RPG and strategy elements. In the game, the players can act as they wish, which for some may mean trying their hand as a criminal. In this guide we explain everything related to criminal rating.

What is criminal rating in Bannerlord?

The criminal rating system closely tracks a player's bad behavior. It can be either a minor transgression like smuggling goods, or something more serious like raiding a caravan and killing the entire escort. For each offense, the player receives points. The more of them they earn, the more dire the consequences.

Each kingdom tracks the player's crimes individually, therefore, if you have committed crimes in the territory of one of them, the other should not prosecute you for it.

Consequences of having too high a criminal rating in Bannerlord

If you want to create a character who will be a villain, be aware of the many consequences of your actions. Potential problems you may experience include:

  1. Paying for your crimes - your evil deeds may lead to you having to pay a fine when caught. If you fail to do so, you will be taken prisoner.
  2. A ban on entering a village - if you are in an area where you have been declared a criminal, entering the area will become very difficult. The only ways may be to bribe the guards or sneak inside undetected.
  3. Death - if your crimes continue and you are eventually caught by enemies, there is a good chance that you will face an executioner who will cut off your head.

How to stop being a criminal and nullify the criminal rating in Bannerlord?

To improve your situation and not be seen as an outlaw in the territory, you can voluntarily go to jail or pay a fine. Over time, the criminal rating will also start to drop on its own, which is why it's a good idea to travel to kingdoms that are friendly or neutral towards you and not do anything wrong.
