Attacking StrategiesEdit

  • If used in large groups; Landsknecht can be devastating and can destroy a base easily; if not in heavy fire.
  • Catapults are devastating against Landsknecht and can kill a group of them in a few hits if in the range of the impact. Spread your Landsknecht around so the catapult would have to hit each Landsknecht to kill it and that its impact would not affect other Landsknecht as well or deploy a few heavy cavalry to destroy it.
  • Use ranged infantry such as crossbowmen to support Landsknecht.
  • Landsknecht can be used as a distraction for many defenses and can help protect ranged infantry such as crossbowmen from heavy fire from defenses.

Defensive Strategies Edit
