Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Imperial Arquebusiers are a heroic era arquebusier ranged infantry unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

Imperial Arquebusiers are like all gunpowder troops sneered at by the nobility, but more than one seemingly hopeless battle has been turned around by their steady, thunderous firepower. Their excellent training allows them to keep up a steady rate of fire by standing in three ranks, which fire in turn while the others are reloading.

Acquisition[ | ]

Imperial Arquebusiers can be unlocked from the Ranged Infantry unit tree, where their node costs 15000 honour to unlock after prerequisites. This cost can be partially or fully defrayed using up to 20x Imperial Arquebusier's Signaculum.
