Captain's Infantry II

The Captain's Infantry II is the Highest of the standard Heavy Infantry available in the game

Heavy Infantry, also known as Assault Infantry is the first type of Troops to use for the player in DomiNations. They're excellent against buildings and cavalry but are weak against other infantry and catapults. They're unlocked in the Dawn Age.

Spearman

The Spearman is the first level of standard Heavy Infantry available to the player. They're unlocked in the Dawn Age.

General Information[]

The standard Heavy Infantry's default A.I. or purpose is to destroy the closest building (excluding walls), but they may fight back when attacked by an enemy troop. They're excellent at taking down defensive Heavy Cavalry (noticeably on cavalry at an age lower than them) and are able to destroy buildings quickly. However, their disadvantages are that they have low health, meaning that they can be killed very quickly. They can get destroyed easily by Splash Damage Structures such as Catapults or Mortars and Multiple Target Damage Structures such as Redoubt or Machine Gun. They are also weak against other Heavy Infantry (and even Ranged Infanty} spawned by the City Center, Garrisons, Ambush Traps etc.

The German and Japanese unique Heavy Infantry unit have 20% more damage than standard Heavy Infantry troops. The Roman Heavy Infantry unit has 25% more health than standard Heavy Infantry troops.

Heavy Infantry takes up 1 space in the barracks. They are trained in 35 seconds (28 if you are playing as the French). They are melee until they're upgraded to the Enlightenment Age version of the unit. They have the range of 1.5. (Formerly a range of 3 meaning that they used to shoot over the walls like the ranged Infantry Archers)

Attacking Strategies[]

  • If these units are used in large groups and not in heavy fire, they can be devastating and can destroy a base easily.
  • Catapults or Mortars, with their splash damage, are devastating against these units and can kill a group of them in a few hits if in the range of the impact. Spread the units around so that the mortar would have to hit each infantry to kill it and that its impact would not affect other infantry as well, or deploy a few Heavy Cavalry to destroy it.
  • Redoubts or Machine Guns buildings can likewise be devastating against these units, if it is not dealt with appropriately. Keep the units away from it until it is destroyed or position them to destroy it quickly.
  • If a group of these units are under fire from Catapults or Mortars or Redoubts or Machine Guns buildings, consider using war tactics such as Sabotage or Protect and destroy the buildings as quick as possible, or use Demolition beforehand to eliminate these threats. You may also consider using Heavy Cavalry or other units to destroy these threats early on.
  • The Missile Silo can eliminate a group of these units quickly. Don't group them together so much that will attract the Silo attacks. Or you could deploy them after the Silo is destroyed, sabotaged or distracted by other units with high HP.
  • Use Ranged Infantry or Machine Gun Infantry to support them, so they don't perish easily to defenders.
  • They can be used as a distraction for many defenses and can help protect ranged infantry such as Ranged Infantry from defenses.
  • A group of them can easily overwhelm single target defensive towers, but are vulnerable against machine gun buildings.
  • While using an army entirely composed with Heavy Infantry can decimate enemy bases early on, this strategy becomes less useful as you advance ages as your opponents will use more powerful defenses with AOE effect such as the Missile Silo.


Defensive Strategies[]

  • The Garrison can train up Heavy Infantrys to help defend the village from attackers. Put the garrison defended and inside walls. That way, the garrison can train Heavy Infantrys without getting attacked for a short amount of time. It is suggested that a garrison should be close to the Acropolis since training Heavy Infantrys would be more quicker than usual.
  • The Ambush Trap deploys Heavy Infantrys when triggered by enemy troops are too close to it. It is suggested to put in areas where enemies may deploy in Heavy Cavalry.

Trivia[]

  • Soldiers on foot, called infantry, typically made up the bulk of most armies throughout history. Infantry has always been required to capture and occupy territory.
  • As of update March 15 2022, Heavy Infantry received complete rework, and cost oil to build
