General Assessment


  • Long range.
  • Splash damage.




  • Very deadly troops if used correctly. Use longbows to pick of buildings outside of the range of towers. Longbows are also ideal for protecting Tebuchets and siege weapons.


  • 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 cavalry.
