Composite Bowman is a unit in Age of Empires. It is an upgrade of the Improved Bowman. It is the strongest unit that can be trained at the Archery Range. They are one of the Bronze Age's most cost effective unit as they only require half the resources of a chariot archer. The Minoans provide them with range boost of 2. This bonus allows them to strike before other archers and out-range towers. The Minoans can also continue to use them effectively up until the Iron Age.

Game Info and Tactics Edit

The Composite Bowman is generally more useful than the Improved Bowman. Civilizations that can train the Improved Bowman usually have the ability to upgrade them to a Composite Bowman. Because of this Improved Bowman never really makes their full appearance in a random game. Boasting better overall stats, the Composite Bowman is an excellent ranged choice due to its cost.
