The Arrow Knight is a powerful archer unit of the Aztecs with a lot of Hit Points, very effective against Artillery and buildings, but very slow speed. The Arrow Knights shoot arrows at a great distance, to make up for the lack of Artillery for the Aztecs.

It can be trained from the Noble's Hut.

History Edit

"The Aztec Empire incorporated many neighboring Mesoamerican cultures in a complex mix of trade and tribute. Warriors from neighboring tribes were often called to duty by the Aztec as they expanded throughout the region.

The arrow knights, not Aztec by birth, were allies or subject peoples called into service. Their primary weapon was the atlatl, a leverage device that enabled its user to accurately hurl a spear up to 150 yards.


  • Despite the name, Arrow Knights do not actually fire any standardized arrow in combat, but rather utilizes a type of heavy bow to launch light spears (atlatl) at distant targets. In that sense they are more similar to ballistas in role than regular foot archers.
