Crossbowmen are Renaissance Age Archer units.

It is a very powerful ranged unit and the first unit with the capability to fire at air units, available to counter enemy Flying Machines which appear in the Renaissance Age.


The most common variants would be the Crossbowmen and the Matchlock Gunners.

  • Light/Escort variant - Arbalest, slightly faster, otherwise weaker.

Barbarians have a variant called Taborites.

They become obsolete in the Industrial Age.


They could be improved with Hardened bolts.
