The armed peasant is a weak melee attacker in Stronghold 2.
Armed with only a pitchfork, this weak unit is good for finding traps set by the enemy and can be good for destroying wooden walls if not under heavy fire. They cost very little but are considered to be the weakest unit in the game, dying from only one arrow.
Armed peasants are best used in early harassments and defense (in 'Freeman' games), as well as they can serve as a last resort when under attack. They are cheap to use behind rock baskets, which way they deal far more damage than they normally could. They can also pull ladders off walls.
