The Heavy Horse Archer is an Age of Empires mounted unit. It is an upgrade of the Horse Archer and is highly effective given its cost. However, to some players, the upgrade to the heavy horse archer is too expensive and deemed unnecessary since the upgrade only increases the attack by 1 point and provides an additional 30 hit points.

Since all cavalry archers are designed for guerilla warfare, hit points generally are not needed since these units can outrun most attacks dealt by enemy units. They excel at hit and run attacks and can repeat the process until the enemy is dead without getting anywhere near their close combat range. It also has the strongest human-based ranged attack in the game.
