Royal Tercios.png

Royal Tercios are the Spanish unique Heavy Infantry of the Enlightenment Age.png Enlightenment Age that replaces the standard Fusiliers.


Compared to Fusiliers, Royal Tercios have an attack speed of 44 frames (compared to 32), but do +30% damage against units and buildings.

Against high-armored targets (such as the Heavy Cavalry which Heavy Infantry are typically deployed against), these more powerful but less frequent attacks will typically increase overall DPS, even though raw DPS against unarmored targets is comparable.


  • Tercio ("third") is an infantry organization used by Habsburg Spain which consists up to 3,000 soldiers made up of pikemen, swordsmen, arquebusiers and musketeers.
