Baldur's Gate Wiki

Kobold Captain are the nominal leaders of bands of kobold creatures found in various places and encounters in the game.


If a party member is observed by the kobold group by being in visual range, the Kobolds will attack in most cases.

The Kobold Captain can attempt to engage in melee attack with its short sword, or fire arrows from the Composite Longbow it carries.

Most Kobolds are just a nuisance in BG2 and have difficulty taking more than one blow before being killed, or they must score a critical in order to strike most opponents. They are just really weak and can be taken out in mere seconds by an experienced party. Only in certain stages of the first Baldur's gate game are they of any concern to the player.
