==General Assessment==
''"Longbowmen have the longest range of any troop. They do area-of-effect damage to their targets, making them excellent against bunched units. Protect longbowmen with heavy infantry or other units."''
+
===Strengths===
----
+
*Long range.
===Summary===
+
* Splash damage.
*The 6-foot longbow favored by the English in the 100 Years' War was similar but superior to most other bows of the period.
+
===Weaknesses===
*It has the longest range of any soldier.
+
*[http://age-of-empires-castle-siege.wikia.com/wiki/Catapult_Emplacement Catapult] and [http://age-of-empires-castle-siege.wikia.com/wiki/Trebuchet_Emplacement Trebuchet emplacements.]
*Splash damage.
+
* [http://age-of-empires-castle-siege.wikia.com/wiki/Ballista_Tower Ballista towers.]
*Slow moving.
+
==Tactics==
*Fires a steady rain of arrows
+
===Attack===
*[[Catapult Emplacement]], [[Trebuchet Emplacement]] and [[Ballista Tower]]s are the weaknesses of the Longbowman.
+
*Very deadly troops if used correctly. Use longbows to pick of buildings outside of the range of towers. Longbows are also ideal for protecting [http://age-of-empires-castle-siege.wikia.com/wiki/Trebuchet Tebuchets] and siege weapons.
----
+
===Defense===
===Offensive Strategy===
+
*Longbows are best used in defense by walling them in. This is where their range excels and also does not allow them to wander out into the field to be met by [http://age-of-empires-castle-siege.wikia.com/wiki/Cavalry cavalry].
*Very deadly troops if used correctly. Use longbows to pick on buildings outside of the range of towers. Longbows are also ideal for protecting [[Trebuchet]]s and siege weapons.
 
*Extremely high damage if used as a bunched unit, benefit graciously from cover.
 
----
 
===Defensive Strategy===
 
*Longbowmen are best used in defense by walling them in. This is where their range excels and also does not allow them to wander out into the field to be met by [[cavalry]].
 
----
 
===Trivia===
 
*Longbowmen do reduced damage against walls (Patch 1.3)
