Conqueror's Blade Wiki

Zweihanders are a golden era special melee infantry unit.

In-Game Description[ | ]

On battlefields unsuitable for heavy cavalry, the infantry are spearheaded by dismounted knights armed with two-handed greatswords. These "zweihanders" are amongst the most skilled fighters the Order can muster, and specialise in disrupting enemy infantry by inflicting a great deal of damage in a short burst of aggression, opening up the enemy battle line and allowing the supporting troops to exploit the chaos.

Acquisition[ | ]

Zweihanders can be unlocked via the Season XVII: Knightfall seasonal challenges. As the season's golden era unit, Zweihanders require the Kriegsbruders to be unlocked (i.e. 3rd stage of the Kriegsbruders seasonal challenges completed) before progress can be made on their seasonal challenges.
