Strategy Edit

Some may consider the Khopesh Swordsman as being the first "true" trash unit in Age of Mythology due to its status as a weak infantry, that is only useful versus Villagers. If one does use them in combat, it is suggested that they be supplemented with Spearmen and/or Axemen.

History Edit

"With up to 24 inches in length, Khopesh is an ancient sword-like weapon with a curved end that comes from ancient Egypt. It is believed to have evolved from battle axes but despite its fierce appearance, the weapon's inside edge at the tip was blunted, thereby enabling the weapon to be used also as a hook or a club. Khopesh may also have served as a ceremonial weapon, in which case none of its edges would be sharpened."

TriviaEdit

  • Despite the name, the Khopesh Swordsman actually uses a Shortsword
    • The Khopesh's attack animation is not properly animated that, they attack with a punch holding the sword rather than a proper thrust, this is most likely an error with the attachpoint not facing the correct way.
