Heavy Camel Archer.png

The Heavy Camel Archer is the Nubian unique Ranged Cavalry of the Medieval Age.png Medieval Age that replaces the standard Heavy Horse Archer.


Compared to Heavy Horse Archers, Heavy Camel Archers are statistically identical, but they do +35% damage against Light Infantry and +20% damage against Gunpowder Infantry, so the innate ability of Ranged Cavalry as raiders combined with this advantage makes Heavy Camel Archers great counter-raiders as well.


  • The use of camels as shooting platforms was an Arabian practice seen since ancient times. Nubians, on the other hand, always specialized in shooting on foot.
