In-game dialogue[]

The Morochuco speaks Spanish using the Spanish Hussar's dialogue files.


  • While the Morochuco is often referred to and treated as a distinct unit unique to Peru, the game's data files reveal that it is actually a Comanchero with different name, slightly different model (wearing a chullo), and modified stats/abilities.
    • For this reason, the Morochuco reuses the Comanchero's in-game history text.


Morochucos are cattle-tending horsemen in Peru's Andes Mountains who are comparable to cowboys in North America. Wearing clothes adapted to the cold Andean environment, morochucos descended from the Almagristas and are renowned for their bravery and prowess, as well as their participation in festivities such as horse racing and bullfighting.
