Armed with a bow, Archers form the basic unit of the Archer Line but also a unit class of their own:

Drawing back the bow by hand, the archer is able to fire faster, but also is more inaccurate at range than most crossbowmen. On the other hand, some bows in Age of Chivalry Hegemony can be upgraded to fire at the same or even greater range than a crossbow. Combined with their high rate of fire this can give them a great advantage over crossbows.

Age of Chivalry Hegemony presents the following archer types:

- Basic Archers

- English Bowmen

- Mercenary Longbowmen

- Welsh Helwyr / Saethwyr
