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 stats match those of its immediate predecessor, the Longbow Archer. It is possible to one shot slingers when standing on rocks,(6) and has much higher stats than the Longbow Archer(atk+6,def+6,range+1). It is best used against Grenadiers, better with imperial guards. Weak against Rangers and Dragoons.
