Infantry +5 attack vs cavalry, +4 vs camels
Chieftains is a technology in that is Age of Empires II: The Forgotten unique to the Vikings and can be researched at the Castle. Once researched, it gives infantry an attack bonus of +5 against cavalry and +4 against camel units.
Apart from the
Teutonic Knight, the Berserk is one of the most durable infantry units in the game. With Chieftains researched, they become even more versatile as they can now counter even heavy cavalry units quite effectively. Archers, however, remain a heavy threat to them. Also, the effectiveness of Pikemen is increased, making it more forgiving that the Vikings lack the Halberdier.
