“Well-armed and plentiful, these troops are effective at tearing down enemy buildings.”
The standard Heavy Infantry's default A.I. or purpose is to destroy the closest building (excluding walls) but when attacked by an enemy troop; will fight back. 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.
Throughout history most armies have been made up of peasant Warriors. As a result, most ancient wars abruptly ended at harvest time - the soldiers had to go home to bring in the crops, or everybody starved.
Historical Description in Dominations:
The spear is one of the earliest tools utilized by humanity's forebears, with archaeological evidence going back a half million years give or take a few millenia. Although used primarily for hunting in prehistory, spears were undoubtably turned against other humans in the dawn of war.
Has red-brown hair and beard, with a white kilt and sleeveless white tunic, brown belt and shoulder strap, large, brown armbands and open-toed boots.
- If these units are used in large groups and not in heavy fire; then 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 (Building) 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.
- Missile Silo can elemininate a group of these units quickly. Don't group them together so much that will attract the Silo attacks. Or deploy them after the Silo is destroyed, sabotaged or distracted by other units with high HP.
- Use Ranged Infantry to support them, so they don't perish easily.
- They can be used as a distraction for many defenses and can help protect ranged infantry such as riflemen from heavy fire from defenses.
- A group of them can easily overwhelm single target defensive towers but are vulnerable against Machine Gun (Building).
- The level 1 Garrison can train up Warriors to help defend the village from attackers. Put the Garrison defended and inside walls. That way, the Garrison can train Warriors without getting attacked for a short amount of time. It is suggested that a Garrison should be close to the Acropolis since training Warriors would be quicker than usual.
- Before the invention of metal weapons, warriors would use weapons made out of wood with sharp rocks at the tip, such as the one this unit carries.
