This trio of mods will improve archery in Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Audio player loading…

I can't stop playing open-world RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance (opens in new tab), but its not without its eccentricities. Archery is one area that players have been calling for improvement and, predictably, modders have answered. There's already mods that will make your arrows fly faster and add a reticle while aiming your bow, as well as a simple way to remove the immersion-breaking air trails from any arrows you fire.

You can add a reticle via console commands, as Christopher wrote in the week (opens in new tab), but if you want to go down the mod route instead then this is the one you want (opens in new tab). The mod is compatible with Unintrusive Reticle (opens in new tab), another mod aimed at making the default crosshair less obvious while you're wandering around Bohemia, which I think is a good idea.

Arrows fly pretty slowly in the game, and this Faster Arrows mod (opens in new tab) will speed them up. And if you want to remove the trail of lines that follows the arrows as they travel through the air, then follow the instructions here (opens in new tab).

If you're interested in modding Kingdom Come: Deliverance (I reckon I'm going to hold off until I've exhausted the vanilla game), then it's worth keeping an eye on the game's Nexus Mods page (opens in new tab), where new files are popping up every day. If you want to make the game look prettier, for example, this reshade mod (opens in new tab) should do the trick without impacting performance too much.

You can also simplify the save system (opens in new tab), remove the fog of war from the map (opens in new tab), make lockpicking easier (opens in new tab) and force merchants to carry more money (opens in new tab).
