Notes & Strategies

Like most Bandit cards, Bandit Spearmen rely heavily on Card Icon Passive.png Life Stealer to sustain themselves throughout a fight. By focusing their attacks on medium creatures, and utilizing the damage bonus provided by Card Icon Toggle Affinity Frost.png Blessed Partisans / Card Icon Toggle Affinity Fire.png Infused Partisans, Bandit Spearmen can double their attack power from 900 to 1800, which is an incredible level of damage that can nearly beat out a Card Icon Active.png Frenzied Nightcrawler Card Icon.png Nightcrawler.

Campaign PvE

Card Icon Toggle Affinity Frost.png Blessed Partisans / Card Icon Toggle Affinity Fire.png Infused Partisans make Bandit Spearmen extremely effective in most missions, due to the damage bonus at U-3 allowing them to double their damage. When combined with Unholy Power Card Icon.png Unholy Power, this unit can dish out 250% its normal damage output.

Random PvE

Bandit Spearmen can be used to reinforce a push for the tier three and four camps, but should be recycled afterwards.

Basic Info

Bandit Spearmen are tier two units of the Wasteland Bandits. Their powerful attack, immunity to knockback and slowing effect make these warriors optimal for taking down extra-large units.

Abilities

Official Tooltip
Their barbed spears will slow enemies they hit. A warrior trance makes it difficult to knock them away or trample them down, increasing their lethality against huge creatures.
Steadfast
Card Icon Passive.png Passive: Cannot be knocked back.
Crippling Strikes
Card Icon Passive.png Passive: Melee strikes force units to move at walk speed for 10 seconds.

Tips & Strategies

Bandit Spearmen are designed for taking on extra large units, but do not think that is the only thing they excel at killing! They are quite powerful as they cannot be knocked away and slow your units down when they attack, preventing a retreat. Taking them out at a distance is preferable to engaging in melee whenever possible.

Trivia

  • Bandit Spearmen are Reskins of the Spearmen Card Icon.png Spearmen.
  • The Bandit Spearmen Card Icon.png Bandit Spearmen are based on the Bandit Spearmen.
