Historical Description[]

A musket is an advanced version of the arquebus. Muskets were generally lighter than arquebuses and equipped with bayonets. Most importantly they were flintlock weapons, making them much more reliable than the older matchlocks. The invention of 'volley fire' made musketeers far superior to all other infantry and archery units, rendering the ancient pikemen, archers and swordsmen obsolete whenever musketeers took the field.

Attacking Strategies[]

  • Musketeer has low health; making them vulnerable to defenses. Use Heavy Infantry as meat shields to protect the Musketeer.
  • Musketeer is cheap and can be used to set off hidden enemy traps.
  • Use Musketeer to protect heavy infantry from other infantry so your Heavy Infantry won't get distracted.
  • Since Musketeer can deal more damage to foot troops, bringing some along with Heavy Infantry and/or Heavy Cavalry will help deal with pesky defending foot troops!
  • Make sure to keep the Musketeer behind your 'meat shields' or away from danger.

Defensive Strategies[]

  • Musketeer can be used as good Alliance Troops. One example is that they can shoot over walls to attack troops of the attackers forcing the troops to destroy the wall to kill them. Another thing is that they're good against other Heavy Infantry.
