Kingdoms Crusader 2
Stronghold Crusader Troop Information

Here is a delightful list of the available troops in Stronghold Crusader.



These are your standard long-range troops. Their lack of armour makes them one of the quickest units in the game but in hand-to-hand combat, archers are virtually useless.  They have a long firing range and are very effective against units that don’t wear metal armour.

Crossbowmen: These units are slow to move and reload and have a shorter range than archers.  They are however very accurate and their deadly bolts can easily penetrate metal armour.

These are the first melee troops you have access to and the cheapest to produce. Having no armour makes them quicker than most troops and they prove useful for pushing ladders off of walls and digging moats.  They are also one of the few units able to use ladders to scale walls.

  Pikemen: Their heavy pike and metal armour make pikemen slow to move but also make them the ultimate defensive unit.  They are able to take a lot of damage and are ideal for blocking access to areas of the castle.
  Macemen: These thuggish brutes are quick and deal out a lot of damage, making them ideal assault troops.  They are not heavily armoured and like spearmen they can use ladders to scale castle walls.
  Swordsmen: These are your elite foot soldiers.  Their heavy armour makes them the slowest unit in the game but when they reach their target they prove devastating.  They have both great offensive and defensive capabilities.
  Knights: The ultimate trained solider, knights are both fast and deadly in combat.  They are also especially useful for surprise attacks, sallying forth from the castle to destroy siege equipment.  Each knight needs a horse bred for him in your stables.
  Tunnelers: These special units can burrow beneath the foundations of enemy walls and turrets, causing them to collapse.  They are trained (for a cost in gold) at the tunneler’s guild.
  Laddermen: If you can’t bring a wall down then these units will allow you to go over the top.  Laddermen are cheap to produce but very vulnerable so need to be deployed quickly.
  Engineers: These are perhaps the most versatile and useful unit in the game.  They are required to build and man all of your siege equipment in and out of the castle.  These units are trained in the engineer’s guild.
  Black Monks: These are mysterious individuals to say the least.  They are slow and cumbersome and fight with a quarterstaff. These can be trained in the cathedral.
  Arabian Bows: These units are similar to their European counterparts and are relatively cheap to hire
  Slaves: These are the cheapest units in the game.  They are armed with a flaming torch and if they get through your defences can reduce your castle to a smouldering heap of rubble.
  Slingers:  These units fire small rocks at their attackers and deal out some hefty damage but they only have a short range.
  Assassins: These units can use a grappling hook to climb up enemy walls and are useful for capturing enemy gatehouses.
  Horse Archers: These fast moving mounted archers are a major thorn in the European’s side.  Their ability to fire while on the move allows them to run circles around the opposition.
  Arabian Swordsmen: As these are not as well armoured as their European counterparts but they are a little quicker.
  Fire Throwers:   These throw fiery grenades of Greek fire at the enemy and are devastating to both buildings and troops.
