The Repeating Rifle Horse is the Lakota unique Ranged Cavalry of the Enlightenment Age.png Enlightenment Age that replaces the standard Carabineer.


Compared to Carabineers, Repeating Rifle Horses have +3 movement speed and the ability to gain 1/3 of a resource per point of damage dealt, which only works for buildings that produce Food.png Food (Farms and Granaries), Timber.png Timber (Woodcutter's Camps and Lumber Mills), and Metal.png Metal (Mines and Smelters).

The ability to gather resources in addition to increased speed makes Repeating Rifle Horses even better raiders than their standard counterparts. Adding to that is the Lakota's Power of the Plains, which grants +4 Food.png Food for every cavalry unit, so a Lakota player should make as much as possible of raiding, and Repeating Rifle Horses are the ones for the task.
