Royal Kushite Archers.png

Royal Kushite Archers are the Nubian unique Foot Archer of the Medieval Age.png Medieval Age that replaces the standard Crossbowmen.


Compared to Crossbowmen, Royal Kushite Archers are statistically identical, but they do +6% damage against Foot Archers and Ranged Cavalry (including Mahouts).

Losing the damage bonus against Foot Archers that Kushite Archers had, Royal Kushite Archers are arguably the weakest Nubian Archers when it comes to counter the Foot Archers of its age. When facing Crossbowmen, however, despite the higher projectile speed and superior attack animations of Crossbowmen, the Royal Kushite Archers' damage bonus ensures that they will come out on top, which allows them to defeat all other Foot Archers of the age.
