A heavy soldier is an original unit from the game, The Conquerors. It is one of the most commonly used units.
A heavy soldier is the cousin of the Light Soldier, having +25% fire speed and health, but less speed. It costs 20$ to make and is a reliable, well rounded troop in all sections of the game.
A heavy soldier wears metal plates on its legs, arms and torso so it can represent it is more stronger than its younger counterpart. It holsters a M4 Carbine.
Heavy soldiers are a reliable part of any army. Later on in the game, these soldiers are mainly not mixed with light soldiers even if it was recommended by the creator.
At the beginning of the game, they are mainly used to either skirmish buildings or to destroy enemy armies. Later on in the game, people use them with tanks to get more attack damage. Another great strategy is to put them into Humvees, this will grant them extra protection, mobility and the Humvee is generally targeted first, leaving the heavy soldiers unharmed.
Heavy soldiers can also be used to annoy an enemy's power plants. By inserting them into a transport plane, it can easily fly over to a plant, damage and possibly destroy it, and retreat before the enemy can get its forces to the site.
- To show that its more durable than its weaker counterpart, the torso and limbs are covered in metal plates, similar to Heavy Tanks, Heavy Planes and Juggernauts
- Even if it appears with more armor, the damage is the difference, not the health!
- Similar to light soldiers, heavy soldiers are armed with M4 carbines.
