Rhodok Crossbowman are troops of the Kingdom of Rhodoks.

Other than the Nord Huntsman, these are the only ranged unit that can be acquired at the second tier. They are just village trainees who understand the basics of firing the crossbow, and have been outfitted with simple body armor and a piece of cheap headgear.


Rhodok Crossbowmen are tier-two troops that offer the firepower of third tier troops at a very early stage. They are slow to reload, so it is best to keep them away from the front lines of combat and, if possible, to station them on higher ground behind your infantry.

Keeping these weak but reliable crossbowmen alive and upgrading them through the ranks into Rhodok Sharpshooters will have its benefits, though the above-average firepower and low upkeep of basic Rhodok Crossbowmen make them an excellent choice for garrison duties before this.
