Unit crossbowman.png

The Crossbowman is an upgrade of the Archer, and can be found on the second page, last column, last row of the Upgrades section. Players must research the technology 'To Crossbowman' in the Archery Range to train it. The crossbowman is a stronger ranged unit to attack enemy units without the enemy striking back. It's cheap, versatile, and able to beat a stronger enemy in high quantity. Crossbowmen are affected by the blacksmith techs Archer Armor 1 and 2 as well as Master Archery 1 and 2. Crossbowmen can be dangerous in large numbers. Use this unit to kill the enemy's lighter infantry and ornithopters in early to middle game. Beware the Skirmisher and the Spartan Hoplite.
