The Horde Bonus is an advantage that some units of the Chinese army would earn when in a group of five or more, increasing their rate of fire by 25%. When the Horde Bonus is active, there is a red star visible beneath the affected units.
It is unknown what the rationale behind the bonus actually is, but may be a result of troops' increased morale and fervor in battle.

Note[edit | edit source]
Any combination of the above mentioned units would activate the Horde Bonus. Garrisoned infantry benefit from this bonus, as long as it was active when they entered. Thus, for a building garrisoned one by one, it may be beneficial to evacuate the troops, wait a moment for them to gain the Horde Bonus, then immediately re-garrison them.
