Upgraded FromPikeman
The Halberdier is an upgraded Pikeman available in the Imperial Age that possesses more Hit Points and attack. The Halberdier has a bonus against cavalry, particularly War Elephants. Effective against Skirmishers and cavalry, they are cheap and easy to mass. Enemy Paladins and War Elephants will still defeat them in singular combat, though Halberdiers will deal severe damage before perishing.

It is avaliable to all civilizations except for Aztecs, Mongols, Saracens, Turks and Vikings.

OverviewEdit

The Halberd was a pike weapon invented in the Middle Ages for use against armored men, especially on horseback. It consisted of a six-foot shaft with an axe head at the front, a spear point at the top, and thin point at the rear. The spear was used to ward off cavalry. The thin rear point could be chopped down on an armored man to penetrate the strongest armor. The axe head brought down with both hands could chop through armor, arms, and helmets. Wielding the Halberd left the soldier exposed momentarily, so it was best used in formation with other men at hand for protection.
