Strategy Edit

They are dedicated counter-cavalry units and will destroy cavalry easily and in groups can even handle War Elephants. They are decent against siege weapons as well. However they are weak against everything else, especially archers. This makes their usefulness somewhat dubious.

Murmillo can easily handle most of their combat roles. Murmillo are less effective against cavalry and have slightly lower HP but are more versatile as they have a small bonus against infantry as well and are slightly cheaper. As such Katapeltes are the inferior choice unless the opponent is massing cavalry or War Elephants.

HistoryEdit

The Katapeltes is very effective against cavalry, but is expensive and weak against all other units.

While the mace doesn't at first appear to be a weapon suited to fighting cavalry, used with precision, the powerful strikes can smash through armor to crush the legs of horses and knees or riders. Only the heaviest armor could turn aside the attacks of the Katapeltes - the shield smasher.

TriviaEdit

  • The name "Katapeltes" is Greek meaning Shieldbreaker, this along with their general design would suggest they were at one point, an Atlantean counter-infantry unit, instead of being good vs Cavalry.
