Handgunners are light gunpowder units available at the Siege Workshop or the Guild Hall. They are armed with the hand cannon, the first modern firearm, and they have a bonus against infantry and buildings. They are considered archers, however, and are vulnerable to anti-archer units. Flemish Handgunners are more expensive, but reload quicker.
