The Banner Saga PC Cheats

General Tips

  • Target armor first. You won't do much damage if the enemy unit still has a lot of protection, though there are exceptions.
  • If you rest for a turn, you regain willpower (used for skills). Consider doing this, as the effective use of skills can often be the deciding factor in a battle.
  • The Break stat allows players to easily break armor, so put points into that if you plan on targeting armor more often.
  • Killing opponents helps the rest of the enemy units, so consider "maiming" them instead.
  • When you set up your team before battles, remember that left to right is the order in which your heroes will take action.
  • This one sounds obvious, but keep ranged units away from the action. Their specialty is picking off enemies from a distance, so use that to your advantage.
  • Sometimes there will be a lot of enemies on the screen, so take out the weaker ones first to make things more manageable.
