Crusader Kings 3: How To Raid

Perform successful raids in Crusader Kings 3.

The kingdom is all that a king has got in Crusader Kings 3. It is his duty to nurture his kingdom and increase his empire to become the ultimate ruler in the world. To do this in Crusader Kings 3, you will have to claim territory and make raids. Raiding in Crusader Kings 3 has been revamped and is a little different from how it used to be until CK2. Here’s how to raid in Crusader Kings 3.

How to Raid in CK3

There are two types of raids that you can perform in CK3, for gold and captives. However, the method to perform a raid is similar for both. The requirement to perform a raid is a raiding army. You cannot raid anyone with your normal army. Below mentioned are the steps to raise a raiding army.

  • Head to the military tab
  • Select or create a rally point near the target area
  • Choose “raise local raiders” in the poped screen
  • Click on “raise all as raiders”

This will create an army of raiders with their unique bannermen. These banners tell them apart from the normal war army. Now once you have the army raised, all you need to do is grab them and drag them onto the target area. As soon as you drop them, the raid will begin. The raid will take a few days, but if you want to know the progress, click on the raiding army tab and you will get all the information available including the loot earned.

Now once the raid is over, move the army back to one of your regions. If they are attacked and defeated while returning, the loot will be lost. But, if they manage to get back to your province successfully, then all the loot will be transferred to you. Then it is your choice to whether raid another area or dismantle your raid army.

That’s all you need to know about how to raid in Crusader Kings 3. Raiding can give you valuable loot, but apart from raiding, there are other tasks that you need to take care of. You should know how to fabricate claim in Crusader Kings 3 to be able to expand your empire. Another thing that you can do is enable cheats and console commands. This will help you grow much stronger in the game.
