Very high base ranged damage? 70 attack for 300g? No. Same in melee mode, 35 attack for 300g? And only *2 vs cav.
They're a trash anti-cav. They're a very good anti goon, though.
Just go in editor mode, and try fusiliers vs cav, then compare to different kind of musketeers, highlanders, etc. You'll see how much they suck. Add to that the fact they only have 300 hp for 300g, so they're going to get sniped so fucking easily. I mean, 300 hp is basically a vet jan hp, but for 3 times more VS...
From what u say, they sound like a really good raiding unit. Imagine a mid game scenario on high plains with a 3 fusils running around everywhere when opponent is spread out. U literally cannot catch and kill that unit since it is fast enough to avoid skirms and does pretty well vs cav (I guess like an ashi on steroids?) So I guess if ur using it in stand and fight situations u r simply using the unit incorrectly
