Not to be confused with Native Lancers.Empire: Total War.
These mounted men carry long lances capable of causing significant damage to enemy.
The horsemanship of many Native Americans is unparalleled. Able to wield any number of weapons on horseback, they are formidable foes. Perhaps their most deadly weapon from horseback is the lance. Often decorated with items to commemorate courageous acts performed by a warrior, eagle feathers traditionally mark a particularly ferocious man.
The traditional lance used for hunting was found to be far too long for use in warfare, and a much shorter version was developed. The materials used to make a lance would depend on the areas a tribe inhabited, but the “business end” was made from flint, a material far sharper than many more “civilized” materials.
Native American Lancers are the only lance cavalry available to most Native American factions. They have good charge bonuses, but their other stats are poor, even by lance cavalry standards.
