Managing a fledgling kingdom in Mount and Blade: Bannerlord is a lot of effort. Outfitting and training a big army while trying to manage the social and economic aspects isn’t easy. Sometimes, you’re doomed to lose a battle or fail at a task. Other times, you’re destined for success. Though you can stack the odds with a good build, sometimes you just have to slide by to victory, often by the skin of your teeth.
Let’s say you get into a seemingly hopeless battle and have to fight your way out. And when you finally overcome that massive enemy army, you might want to celebrate a bit. Sure, you can’t meander over to a mead hall and get blind drunk, but you can at least cheer in Mount and Blade: Bannerlord. Now read on and figure out how to psych up your troops.
How to Cheer in Mount and Blade: Bannerlord
It’s natural to want to celebrate when you win, and it’s pretty simple to do. You don’t get too much benefit from it though, other than a cool moment.
To do the emote, you just press and hold the ‘O’ key by default. When you press this button, you get four options on the radial menu to choose from. Pick one and the unique animation will play. That will trigger the cheer animation. That’s all there is to it.
Cheering is a pretty pointless little emote, but it’s still nice to have the option. Cheering is something that wasn’t originally a part of the game, but the devs added it in as it used to be part of the older games.
And despite that simple thing, make no mistake, there’s plenty more to learn about this video game. There are many different skills in Mount and Blade: Bannerlord you can master too. Smithing is pretty vital for making good quality weapons and armor. After all, you don’t want to go into battle with rusted junk.
