Pikemen and Halberdiers are among the strongest basic foot soldiers available to any army. While somewhat slow, they have respectable combat ratings.
The halberdier is a good improvement of the pikeman, with increased attack and damage, but the same defense and hit points, meaning it can deal more damage, but is no better at taking it. The increased movement means it's more likely to reach its opponent before succumbing to their attacks.
- Despite not noted in-game or in the manual, pikemen and halberdiers are immune to cavaliers' and champions' jousting ability.
