- This page is about the unit. For the unit class and general information on archer type units, see Foot Archers.
Archers are the standard Foot Archers unit of the Classical Age, upgrading from Ancient Age Bowmen. Archers are trained at the Barracks and are effective against Heavy Infantry, but weak against Light Infantry and Heavy Cavalry.
Like all Foot Archers units, Archers make excellent garrisons, increasing a building's garrison power more than other unit types.
Archers are trained and upgraded at the Barracks.
Production cost for this unit increases progressively with every Barracks unit on the field or currently in production. However, the maximum cost for Archers is capped at 90 Timber / 112 Wealth. Actual production and upgrading costs may differ, depending on researched technologies, connected rare resources, or adopted governments.
