The Archer uses a powerful water cutting jet to hit enemies. Archers can float to surface in order to fight naval units.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

The Archer's water jets are capable of pushing units away from it. This makes it quite the annoying unit to have to deal with, as raiders in general are unable to get in range of it. Even some riots, like Reavers and Venoms, are unable to get close enough to counterattack it.

On maps with high cliffs or pits, lines of archers can beat skirmishers by chasing them to the edge and pushing them off.
