Light Cavalry Nuke

The Light Cavalry Nuke doesn’t need as many troops, because your troops are much stronger and more effective. A Light Cavalry Nuke is the logical nuke to use for anyone that pursued a Light Cavalry Rush strategy.

The nuke should consist of:

  • 500-750 Light Cavalry
  • 100-200 Axes
  • 250-500 Spears

Any nuke should be a part of a noble train, containing a Noble and several scouts in case the village has high loyalty then you can stack your trains and nukes accordingly.

The Light Cavalry unit is a very strong offensive unit, so make sure that you leave some defense in the village as well in case the player you nobled returns to take it back.  It wouldn’t do to lose a village you worked so hard for because you didn’t plan ahead.

Happy nuking!

Early Axe Nuke

AxeTo use the Early Axe Nuke strategy, you will want to build mostly axes along with spears during the beginner protection. Do not build buildings unless they’re necessary, like the warehouse or the Barracks.

Focus on building a large offensive force. This strategy is very effective, but requires a lot of activity. It works well when your farms are dry, or if you think that you won’t be able to afford a Light Cavalry Rush.  Use your axes to swarm a farm or enemy village, and overwhelm them with force and numbers.  Pillage the resources and return to your village to regroup- you should suffer very few losses.

You should have 1000-1200 Axes, 250-500 Spears, and 100-250 Light Cavalry to round out your nuke.


  • Remember that Spears still are good units for farming and clearing the few inactives you may find around you, so keep building them while the axes help you boost your growth.
  • Axe Nukes work well on long beginner protection.
  • The best location to use this is in the core or early rim and when very few experienced players are around you.
