Atakapa Elite Warriors are a type of irregular in Empire: Total War.

DescriptionEdit

These men are stealthy warriors armed with axes, ideal for ambushes and skirmish warfare.

Atakapa Warriors have a fearsome reputation and an ability to read a landscape intimately. This allows them to move swiftly and silently without the possibility of detection. The combination of field craft and an element of surprise make these warriors ideal for ambush and sudden skirmishes. The Atakapas’ weapons of choice are tomahawks, small axes that lend themselves perfectly to quiet attacks, either when thrown or in hand-to-hand combat.

The Atakapa originated from present day Louisiana and had a reputation among their neighbours for cannibalism. Literally translated, the name Atakapa means ‘man-eaters’, and was given to them by the Chocktaws. The Atakapa actually referred to themselves as the Ishaks or ‘people’. There is, of course, always the chance that the name Atakapa might have been a misunderstanding between the Chocktaws and the French explorers who first recorded the name. Cannibalism was extremely rare amongst Native American tribes, and the few recorded descriptions concern the ritualised eating of vanquished foes.
