Notes on the Cowboy
They are the fastest unit in the game (at 16), they are reasonably priced and useful on occasion. NEVER use them to attack someone. Rule of them for Cowboy players is to have these as the troop in 1 out of 6 villages.
Cowboys are PERFECT for farming missions. Especially bandits and inactive players due to their speed and carrying capacity. With a carrying capacity of 75kg the Cowboys are better at raiding than Caballerias too (Cowboys cost 2 whereas Cabs are 3).
Just remember that these are DEFENSIVE units and are never, I repeat, NEVER to be used in attacks!
