Mount and Blade Warband Documents Folder Location

As specified earlier, there is an in-game battle size limit and a secret, massive limit you can change yourself. Here is how you can increase battle size in Mount and Blade Warband:

  1. Open your “Documents” folder. You can use the search bar to find it.
  2. Look for the “Mount&Blade Warband” folder (You can see it in the picture above).
  3. Right-click the “rgl_config.txt” file and select Open.
  4. Hit Ctrl + F on your keyboard and search for “battle_size”
  5. Change the “1” value for battle size with a higher number. Change it to “2.25” for a normal increase.

The normal battle size value (1) results in a limit of 150 troops in the battle. Changing it to 2.25 will result in 300 troops being the limit. We recommend not going over 2.5, as the game will start lagging and the troops won’t fit on the battle map anymore.
