The Militiaman is a unique very fast to create rifleman of the USA, which can be recruited at the US- Dwelling II.

The US-Militiaman, unlike most military units, isn't able to make up formations via officers and cannot be upgraded beyond their base stats.

Salary[edit | edit source]

Militiamen demand the highest salary of any unit ingame, with one gold mining peasant only being able to entertain 4 Militiamen.

Usage[edit | edit source]

In raw stats, the Militiaman represents in all aspects a worse alternative to any other gunpowder Infantry unit. Their only saving grace being their high base rate of fire.

Their very fast creation speed though makes them very useful on the defense, when one has to spontaneously react to an enemy attack.
