Nobody Saves the World Horse guide

by on January 18, 2022

The Horse is one of the quirkier forms you unlock in Nobody Saves the World. It has the fastest move speed in the game, meaning it is great for navigating the overworld quickly. However, to use the Horse properly in combat, you’ll need to learn a few of its nuances properly. It will require you to rethink everything you’ve learned up until this point about attacking enemies. But despite that, the Horse can still be a powerful form. Check out the information below to read more about the Horse in Nobody Saves the World.

The first thing you’ll notice, and have to get to grips with, with the Horse is that it attacks with its back legs. As such, attacks will always be in the opposite direction from the direction you are facing. As such, you will always need your back to enemies to land hits. It can be quite confusing initially. Holding the keep direction button (RB on the controller) will be key to maintaining the desired direction whilst moving around freely. Obviously, you want to try and cause enemies to hit scenery or other enemies when you kick them because then they’ll sustain additional Impact damage. The pushback from your kick is quite far, so this can be quite easy. Gallop is great for moving around at speed, as an evading tactic, but can also be used to stampede through swarms of grunts with great effect, assuming they don’t have a Ward on them.
