Sharpshooters are level 4 neutral creatures recruited from the Treetop Tower.

"Specially trained by the guerrilla warrior Gelu, Sharpshooters are a select troop. Recruited from the ranks of Archers, Marksmen, Wood Elves, and Grand Elves, Sharpshooters use a huge recursive, compound longbow. More than five feet in length, three bowstrings running through the pulleys on both ends, aid in the power and precision of their attacks. With their training, distance and siege walls are not a hindrance." AB manual

Appearance[edit]

Sharpshooters were added in Armageddon's Blade so there are no Sharpshooters or Treetop Towers in Restoration of Erathia.

Tactics and info[edit]

The information found in this section is subjective. Remember that each and every situation in H3 is different and may call for different strategies and tactics.

Like most ranged units, they are very vulnerable in melee. This applies especially to Sharpshooters, whose health is the lowest for a level 4 unit, 15, and fit the definition of a glass cannon. However, they have the highest damage-to-hit points ratio of any unit in the game, and will deal tremendous amounts of damage, as long as you can keep them constantly shooting. Expert Slow coupled with Expert Archery helps immensely with this.
