Attacking Strategies Edit

  • Due to its fast attack speed, this unit fares well against infantry, as their lower health means that more shots that do less damage, which the People's Rifleman has, does better as less shots are wasted. Against other defenses, such as cavalry, towers and traps, you'll treat them like a regular shooter; keep them out of fire, target the defenders, etc.
  • People's Rifleman have low health; making them vulnerable to defenses. Use Heavy Infantry such as Elite Infantry as meat shields to protect the People's Rifleman.
  • People's Rifleman are cheap and can be used to set off hidden enemy traps.
  • Use People's Rifleman to protect Heavy Infantry from other infantry so your Heavy Infantry won't get distracted.

Defensive Strategy Edit

  • People's Rifleman can be used as good Alliance Troops. One example is that they can shoot over walls to attack troops of the attackers forcing the troops to destroy the wall to kill them. Another thing is that they're good against other heavy infantry.
