Rogers' Rangers are a type of skirmisher in Empire: Total War. They are available only with the Special Forces & Bonus Content DLC.

DescriptionEdit

These elite light infantrymen are trained in wilderness warfare and taught to survive in harsh conditions.

Rangers are used for scouting and raiding missions far beyond the skills of ordinary men. Their ranks are mostly drawn from frontiersmen already hardened to living in the wilderness, as their experience making them ideal for further training. The wild nature of their environment is reflected in the unconventional tactics they are taught, and they are given some leeway where formal army discipline is concerned.

Historically, rangers were employed by the British army and were used in the hostile environments of North America during the French and Indian War. They would carry out long distance winter raids using crude snowshoes to travel. The most famous and revered of all rangers were the “Rogers’ Rangers”, named for their commanding officer, Robert Rogers. The traditions of Rogers’ Rangers are carried on today by the US Army Rangers, although the modern unit owes its existence to the Second World War experience of US troops fighting alongside British commandos and a reformed force in the Korean War.

General InformationEdit

Rogers' Rangers are essentially superior Rangers, possessing better statistics in almost every category. Unlike rangers, only one regiment of Rogers' Rangers may be recruited.

Similarly to most Light Infantry, Rogers' Rangers have a superior range over regular Line Infantry. As a result of this they should be used to harass the enemy and take on any enemy Skirmishers. Rogers' Rangers have better melee statistics than most skirmishers, but due to their lower numbers and lack of bayonets they are not ideal to count upon in a melee. As they are rangers rather than proper light infantry, Rogers' Rangers cannot utilize techniques unique to light infantry, including deploying stakes and deploying fougasse. However, they can be recruited nearly at the beginning of the Grand Campaign, giving Great Britain a skirmishing advantage.

Rogers' Rangers are almost unique in that they cost more to recruit in multiplayer and skirmishing battles than in single player.
