The Manhunter is the most basic bounty hunter unit. They spawn in groups of 9 to 40.

Since Manhunters never upgrade themselves, upgrading a recruited Manhunter is the only way to get higher-tier Manhunter troops. This is because Manhunters belong to the "manhunter" faction, while the higher tiers belong to the "slaver" faction and troops cannot switch factions without player intervention.


Manhunters can only be recruited from a prisoner pool. An effective way to accumulate Manhunters is to travel to Rivacheg at the coast and find some Sea Raiders with Manhunters as prisoners. If you have enough troops, you will easily defeat them and gain the freed Manhunters. Another good location for finding Manhunters is the Sarranid desert, as stronger groups of the fast, mounted Desert Bandits are able to run down and capture the small bands of Manhunters they come across.

These units have no notable tactics. Their cavalry usually rushes to the battlefield and are swarmed. The infantry is little better than farmers with large maces.

Manhunters and their upgrades all exclusively carry blunt weapons for knocking enemies unconscious and capturing them. Combined with a high Prisoner Management skill, a company of Manhunter variants can make any engagement very profitable, provided you can win. Being cavalry, they also have a high movement rating on the map, which helps offset the large numbers of prisoners anyone who commands them may accumulate.
