"Crossbowman (Level 1-3): Crossbows were easy to use though slow. They were able to pierce defenses previously unreachable in battle."

"Heavy Crossbowman (Level 4-5): Though longbows were faster, heavy crossbows still carried more impact and remained common on the battlefields of Medieval Europe. "

"Arquebuser (Level 6-7): These low-velocity matchlock weapons were the first proto muskets and were able to pierce all but the heaviest plate at close range."


Summary

  • Crossbowmen receive a damage bonus against towers. They are lightly armored and should be deployed behind heavy infantry or other well-armored troops.
  • Crossbowmen are basic ranged soldiers, unlocked from the Level 1 Archery Range.
  • Crossbowmen will be slain easily if engaged in melee by your troops
  • Bonus against towers and grenadiers.
  • Ranged attack
  • Poor health and attack.
  • Poor range, need to get in close.

Offensive Strategy

  • Deploy Crossbowmen to take out enemy towers. Always use other units such as infantry to act as a meat shield.
  • Also put to good use if deployed while other units are fighting defensive units as they take out the defensive units quikely
  • Do not deploy alone as they have very low health and only takes one blow from the like of a catapult emplacement to wipe them out entirely

Defensive Strategy

  • Crossbowmen CAN NOT be used in defense.
