Qizilbashi Musketeers are a type of line infantry in Empire: Total War.

DescriptionEdit

For all its smoke and noise, handling the smoothbore, muzzle-loading musket can be taught to all but the most stupid of men. Once the basic skills of loading have been mastered, it is simply a matter of pointing the loud end at the enemy and pulling the trigger. It is in God’s hands as to what happens next!

Even the most inexperienced or cack-handed of peasants can be useful with a musket in his hands. The noise of a volley is often enough to frighten, and any casualties in the enemy ranks are a bonus.

Historically, such units of irregular musket men would arrive at a battlefield with all kinds of weapons, from ancient matchlocks handed down from father to son, to modern government-issue weapons looted from the enemy dead. This lack of standardisation did not matter much, as it was the ability to fire at all that made the unit a useful force.

General InformationEdit

Qizilbashi Musketeers are some of the best musket-armed infantry available to most Islamic factions in the Indian subcontinent and Persia. Despite their passably good statistics, however, they are put at a severe disadvantage in past the early game, as they do not have access to Fire by Rank, Square Formation, or the various bayonet technologies.
