The Zolnier is a Polish Commonwealth infantry marksman, the generic Musketeer class of the Polish commonwealth. Lightly armored and armed with a musket and saber, the Zolnier is a competent, if stunningly unexceptional infantryman that can be deployed in bulk. However, without cavalry support, don't expect them to be very skilled. In Captain modes in multiplayer they have Armor-clad Kuntush instead of Hajduk Uniform.


Like any other marksmen unit, they work well in firing lines. Under the fire at will command, a good number of Zolniers (50 or more) will provide a constant musket fire, preventing enemies from getting close. Zolniers can also be used as anti-cavalry for a short time. When a battle begins, arrange them in rows quickly and deploy them in a good position in the map, wait for the enemy cavalry to get close before giving them the order to open fire. While waiting for the enemy to get close, arrange your cavalry in attacking formation so that they can relieve the Zolniers when they get overrun by enemy troops.

During a siege, Zolniers will excel in shooting down defenders. Zolniers shouldn't be used to storm fortifications because they lack heavy armor and weaponry in melee combat. At the start of a siege, hold your other troops and let the Zolniers open fire in a safe distance in rows, let them empty all their bullets before deploying your other troops to attack.
