The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Guide – How to Play Gwent Like a Pro

1 of 7


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a game that is full of challenges. Bandits roam the countryside, Wyverns hunt in the skies, and deadly creatures guard the deep, dark caverns that populate the world. But, no challenge is as daunting as that of Gwent. What is Gwent, you ask? Is it some savage beast that waits for a lone Witcher to pass by before brutally eviscerating him in the middle of the deserted woods? No, it’s actually a trading card game that will prove to be the toughest element of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

This guide will help get you into the game and winning after a few minor tweaks to how you approach Gwent. Before getting into the nitty-gritty of strategies and other intricacies of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s new card craze, the first tip is commitment. Gwent is not an easy game, nor is it something that can be mastered passively. Players will have to put in time, and tons of hours in order to truly show and prove that they are a Gwent champion.

Commitment means completely foregoing the saving of lives and the search for Ciri. You must eat, breathe, and sleep Gwent. It’s a path that is definitely not for the faint-of-heart, and can only be walked by the most determined of card masters.
