The Stone Thrower is the artillery unit of the Bronze Age. The unit has a horrendously low attack, low defense and low speed, but is has the longest attack range in the Bronze Age. It receives an attack bonus on hills. It is effective against the Heavy Unit Class. Unable to move through rock, water and swamps.

Stone throwers can also be strong against enemies when in high numbers. When attacking armies with 1-4 heavy units troops, using 3-4 stone throwers is recommended. Concentrate all of the attack on one of the heavy units at a time until they are all defeated. This will hopefully destroy all of the heavy units before they can attack, making it easier for the rest of your army.  After the Iron age, using stone throwers is not recommended.

It is quite inefficient and useless, though can be a nuisance to the enemy when used in large numbers. This is because of its terrible stats, which render it useless very quickly as you progress; it should be used to take out ballistas, archers, slingers, warriors, legionnaires, catapults (EMA).
