The Crossbowman is a ranged offensive soldier. He is typically used at lower levels. He is ideal for attacking melee defenders. The Crossbowman can be upgraded from the research tower to the Veteran Crossbowman, a stronger offensive unit.
Crossbowmen carry a large, wooden crossbow, and wear a metal helmet. They wear leather gloves and chainmail (a type of armor made of woven steel pieces). Their tunic color and design is the same as the player's "Coat of Arms".
