Game Info Edit
Pistolero is an Outlaw unit which is armed with a pistol. Pistoleros are relatively powerful, but with a slow rate of fire. They are weak against later ages units, but are fairly overpowered in Colonial Age. The reason for their low cost compared to high performance is extreme population space demand; one house is needed to house only 2 Pistoleros. They have medium amount of HP (150 like musketeer), so they might want to maintain distance. Little do most of the players know, that Pistolero is a projection of Musketeer units type, so it deals a great amount of damage to Cavalry in close combat. Pistolero also resists 30% of Hand damage, making it even more suited for hand combat with Cavalry.
