Historical DescriptionEdit

"The Arquebus was an early gunpowder weapon. It had a matchlock-firing action and was the first real "gun" in Europe. While a crossbow or a longbow could be fired more accurately, the Arquebus wasn't as hard to master as the longbow, and was quicker to reload than a normal crossbow."

Attacking Strategies Edit

  • Arquebusiers have low health; making them vulnerable to defenses. Use heavy infantry such as halberdiers as meat shields to protect the arquebusier.
  • Arquebusiers are cheap and can be used to set off hidden enemy traps.
  • Use Arquebusiers to protect heavy infantry from other infantry so your heavy infantry won't get distracted.

Defensive Strategy Edit

  • Arquebusiers are good to be use as an Alliance Troops. One example is that they can shoot over walls to fend off soldiers forcing the attacker to destroy the wall to kill them.
  • Another thing is that they're good in eliminating heavy infantries and siege weapons.
  • They occupied only 1 alliance space and as such plenty can be received
