Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Janissaries are a silver era arquebusier unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

Centuries ago, the Janissaries were a regiment of conscripted slave warriors, but as the Anadolou Empire has prospered and reformed, they are now an elite professional corps and a power bloc within the empire. Being well aware of their value, the Janissaries have secured for themselves rich rewards for their service and have occasionally overthrown one ruler to install a rival more sympathetic to their demands. Each soldier is armed with a large-caliber musket requiring a wooden rest to support it before firing.

Acquisition[ | ]

Janissaries can be obtained via the Season IV: Blood of the Empire seasonal challenges. As they are the season's silver era unit, there are no prerequisites for making progress on the Janissaries seasonal challenges.
