Balamob Slingers are the Maya unique Light Infantry of the Ancient Age.png Ancient Age that replaces the standard Slingers.


Compared to Slingers, Balamob Slingers are statistically identical, but they do +50% damage against other Light Infantry, making them excel at defeating all other Light Infantry.

This advantage makes Balamob Slingers one of the best defensive units in the early game, specially taking into account the Maya's national powers; for in an enemy raid or Ancient Age.png Ancient Age rush attempt, the enemy's ranged units will be at a crippling disadvantage, while Heavy Infantry, the only real Ancient Age.png Ancient Age counter to Balamob Slingers, will have to cope with the increased power and toughness of Mayan buildings.
