Heavy Infantry are the backbone of an army. In Age of Empires II, heavy infantry are usually used as cannon fodder, as they have high Hit Points for their cost, while having a decent armor and attack themselves. Most heavy infantry also have a bonus against buildings, and units like pikemen excel against Cavalry, but they lose to Archers and Siege Weapons.

In Age of Empires III heavy infantry generally counter Cavalry, melee Light Infantry, and work great against buildings. However they are very vulnerable to Artillery and Light Infantry. Most heavy infantry are good against light infantry in a melee, though units like Grenadiers are not effective in melee.
