Chivalry 2 – Quick Horse Guide

Horses are a bit of a pain in the ass when you get started since the controls aren’t explained. Here’s a couple tips I’ve learned myself that could help others.

General Tips & Tricks

Horses don’t really have a “Throttle”, so you have to hold W to continue moving at a trot. Press shift to kick things into a Gallop, but be aware it isn’t as easy to turn this way.

Speaking of turning, this is where it’s most frustrating. Turning is based on where your mouse is looking, but I think doing a combination of that and using A/D can help turn a bit more. In order to make a sharp turn, tap/hold S or reverse while turning your camera in the direction you want to go. Your horse will whinny a bit and should turn much more quickly in the desired direction.

If you find yourself stuck facing a wall or stuck on some geometry, hold S and use either A or D to strafe away from the obstacle.

Hope this helps!

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
