Unit Details

  • Season 16: Knightfall

On battlefields unsuitable for heavy cavalry, the infantry are spearheaded by dismounted knights armed with two-handed greatswords. These "zweihanders" are amongst the most skilled fighters the Order can muster, and specialize in disrupting enemy infantry by inflicting a great deal of damage in a short burst of aggression, opening up the enemy battle line and allowing the supporting troops to exploit the chaos.
