Nest of vipers is a Quest in Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Sir Radzig asked me to scout out the location of the camp where the bandits who attacked Neuhof are holed up. I've got to find out as much as I can in the camp and if possible sabotage things a bit.

Nest of vipers Walkthrough

  1. Get two bottles of  Poison and a Torch.
  2. Follow the directions of Timmy or Morcock to Pribislavitz. See Gallery for the location on the map -  you don't have to follow their directions step by step.
  3. Make Sure the game is saved before you get closer to the camp.
  4. Scout it out by running around it once. You should find the following locations:
    • Two main bridges (the one that you can reach by following the main path and the one in the south).
    • South and south-west parts of Pribyslavitz (Henry will say that it is a good place for a surprise attack).
    • The center of Pribyslavitz,
    • The smaller northern camp.
    • The bigger western camp - you should be able to watch a cut-scene during which Runt kills one of his men.

There are two camps inside that town. One Bandit camp and one Cuman camp.

  1. Get some gear with low visibility and noise and try to sneak into the Cuman camp at night.
  2. Get some Cuman armor and trick the Bandits so they let you walk freely inside the bandits camp. Keep in mind that other Cumans will see through your disguise. There is a full Cuman armor inside a locked easy chest near the backside of the Cuman camp. (see gallery)

Sabotaging the bandits and Cumans will make the attack on that camp in the next quest much easier. There more damage you do the weaker they gonna be in the next quest!

The easiest way to sabotage them is to poison their food. There are two pots - one in the Bandit camp and one in the Cuman camp. Wait until no one is watching and then add the poison to the pot.

Burning the arrows, on the other hand, is quite a bit harder to do unnoticed. If you do want to remove the threat of archers, you’ll either have to time the burning very precisely with a torch. There are two barrels with arrows in the Bandit camp and two in the Cuman camp.

If enough damage is done, report back to sir Radzig.Tell him everything you saw and tell him that there are a lot of bandits and Cumans there so he asks you to get reinforcements from Sir Divish of Talmberg.

Tips & Tricks

  • Infiltrate the Camp at night
  • You could also just run in and sabotage everything while everyone is chasing you. You might get away in the dark with the right gear.
