The Lisowczyk (plural, Lisowczycy) is a light cavalryman fielded by the Polish Commonwealth. Though present in game, they can be acquired from prisoners only.

Tactics Edit

The average Lisowczyk is armed with either a firearm suited for mounted combat (a carbine or pistol) or a bow and arrows for ranged combat, and wields a saber or lance for melee engagements. Lightly armored with only Kuntushes and hats, their best defense is their speed and lightning attacks with their ranged weapons. In melee, they will quickly melt away against heavier opponents and Pikemen.

Veterans have slightly better weapons and clothing overall, and are more trained. Nevertheless, the fact that they are light cavalry should not be forgotten.

Stats and equipment Edit

Trivia Edit

  • Historically, the Lisowczycy were used by the Commonwealth as irregular cavalry units that were paid in whatever they could plunder from the countryside. They were well known for their agility, ferocity, hunger for war, and high effectiveness in combat, yet were infamous for looting and raping uncontrollably.
  • As the Lisowczycy units were disbanded by the Commonwealth in 1635, it is unknown how some Lisowczycy still find themselves serving the Poles in the game's setting.
