- Archer Maiden creed

Archer Maidens are Imperial anti-air/anti-surface infantry introduced in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising.

Background[edit | edit source]

Main article: Archer maiden/Profile

An all-female division of Imperial infantry, the archer maidens were women who lost family and loved ones in the war and were rejected by the elite Rocket Angels.

They were armed with greatbows that fire energy arrows capable of bringing down enemy aircraft, and were also effective against infantry and light vehicles. They could also fire specially-charged arrows that split up into a rain of shrapnels mid-air, which were especially effective against clusters of infantry.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Barrage Shot

The Archer maiden use specially-charged arrows that split up into a flurry of white-hot spikes, that deadly to clusters of enemy infantry. The maidens' bows then must briefly recharge in between launching the heavier ordnance.

In-game[edit | edit source]

The Archer Maiden is a surprisingly powerful addition to the Imperial Arsenal, capable of both taking down aircraft and engaging infantry. Like all infantry units, they are still vulnerable against armoured vehicles, and dedicated anti-infantry weapons. To address this weakness they are usually deployed with other types of infantry such as the Imperial Warrior . They are most effective in squads of five, especially when used against aircraft such as the Apollo Fighter and the Vindicator. However, heavier aircraft such as the Harbinger Gunship can easily mow them down, uniting many of the Archers with their loved ones swiftly.

Against infantry, they deal more damage per shot than an Imperial Warrior. The Piercing Barrage is most effective against massed infantry formations. Reconnaissance recovered from Imperial archives indicates that they may be able to destroy lightly armoured buildings, such as Allied Power plant using this ability. This measure is ill-advised since Archers Maidens were not trained to be used as siege units.
