Sharpshooters NTW Icon
Sharpshooters are a type of skirmisher infantry in Napoleon: Total War.


These skirmishers are excellent shots, perfect for harassing an enemy from a distance.

Nothing causes fear in men during battle like seeing your comrades slaughtered by a seemingly invisible enemy. Jägers are adept at hiding in cover as the foe approaches and they then use their superior marksmanship to bring down their targets. Using loose skirmishing formations, jägers are good at ambushes, but are at a disadvantage if they are forced into close combat, or ridden down by cavalry.

The Austrian Jägers, or “hunters” were extremely well trained and particularly adept at using cover and fieldcraft to gain the upper hand in a fight. They could stalk their targets, just as hunters stalk deer, using every bit of cover to hide their approach to a firing position. At the Battle of Wagram in 1809 jägers hid in a drainage ditch and lay in wait for the French, hitting them with a barrage of well-aimed shots.

General InformationEdit

Sharpshooters are exclusively available to Denmark. They possess better accuracy and reloading than default Jägers, giving Denmark a slight edge over most other factions in terms of skirmishers.
