Musketeers are the Short-ranged Units of the '''Colonial Age''', and the first to be unlocked on the tech tree. They possess a respectable level of offensive strength, but they are defensively frail, bearing the second weakest defensive stats of all Colonial Age units. The unit's movement and range stats match those of its immediate predecessor, the [[Longbow Archer]]. It is possible to one shot slingers when standing on rocks,(9-10) and has much higher stats then the Longbow Archer(atk+6,def+6). It is best used against Garnaders, better with imperial guards. Weak against Rangers and Dragoons.

Musketeers are the ranged Units of the Colonial Age, and the first to be unlocked on the tech tree. They possess a respectable level of offensive strength, but they are defensively frail, bearing the second weakest defensive stats of all Colonial Age units. The unit's movement and range stats match those of its immediate predecessor, the Longbow Archer. It is possible to one shot slingers when standing on rocks,(9-10) and has much higher stats then the Longbow Archer(atk+6,def+6). It is best used against Garnaders, better with imperial guards. Weak against Rangers and Dragoons.
