Sabotage half size version.png In the Extended Edition, this unit/building is affected by a damage bug.


Impi are the Bantu unique Light Infantry of the Medieval Age.png Medieval Age that replaces the standard Elite Javelineers.


Compared to Elite Javelineers, Impi have +1 attack strength and a build time of 125 frames. This means they are more capable and useful if trying to swarm an enemy with Light Infantry, since their larger damage value and their ability to replenish losses faster translates to greater capacity to sustain pressure.

Impi also benefit greatly from the Power of Migration, as the Bantu have a +100% Population Limit.png Population Limit, and all of their infantry move 25% faster. These combined advantages make Impi one of the best raiding units of its age, and quite useful in a rush if properly supported.
