Highlanders are the British unique Gunpowder Infantry of the Enlightenment Age.png Enlightenment Age that replaces the standard Musketeers.


Compared to Musketeers, Highlanders are statistically identical, but do +30% damage against infantry units.


  • The Highlanders are based on the 42nd Regiment of Foot, modeled after their Napoleonic era uniform.
  • Highlanders have a slight accuracy drop-off with range (which Musketeers don't have), but their base accuracy is high enough to maintain perfect accuracy even at maximum range, so this difference has no practical effect.
