Rhodok Sharpshooters are Rhodok crossbowmen who have highly polished skills, and are the strongest crossbow-wielding troop in the game. They are armed with a fearsome Siege Crossbow and Steel Bolt combination, which can take down any enemy with any armor in one or two hits. They also always carry a Board Shield. This equipment setup allows for some very powerful strategies.


If you tell them to hold fire, they will use their shield and melee weapon, as opposed to telling them to pull out blunt weapons, which causes half of them to use their fists due to carrying a Pick or Sword rather than a Hammer. If you tell them to fire at will, they will pull out their crossbows. You can unleash a nice, unison volley of bolts at prime range upon your opponents, and due to their board shields, enemy fire will not damage any of your Sharpshooters. Be careful when besieging castles, as the defenders will never run out of ammunition. It may be more effective to use Vaegir Marksmen for repeated siege assaults due to their higher rate of fire and consequently higher damage in a short period of time, allowing your archers to run out of arrows, retreat, and attack again.

While being great crossbowmen, Sharpshooters are also great at self-defense. In fact, their skills are on par with veteran infantry of the other kingdoms. Their Ironflesh and Power Strike skills are impressively high. Do keep in mind, however, that their Mail with Tunic armor is mediocre at best.
