Nord Archers are troops of the Kingdom of Nords. They are the main ranged unit after the Nord Huntsman, and are effective at medium to long range.

These troops carry axes and swords, but can be easily killed by adequately armed horsemen and infantry. Their equipment is similar to that of Forest Bandits, and some Archers will look exactly like them.


Nord Archers are probably the most heavily-armored archers for their tier, making them useful in battles. These units are equipped with Short Bows and, when upgraded, great armor. They also don't take long to train or find, allowing easy collection of a large mass of archers for a party or castle garrison. Since Nord Archers have bows rather than crossbows, they can fire projectiles at a fast rate.

In big numbers, Nord Archers can easily overwhelm the enemy units that are approaching towards them, so building up the line of Nord Archers is very good strategy against enemies that have bigger armies and could easily demolish you in melee fight. The best combination with Nord archers will be a prepared line of infantry that will be ready to jump in to fight as soon as enemies will get too close. It is also a good idea to have small, but strong heavy cavalry that will be able to juke around enemies while archers will be able to shoot enemies down.
