Macemen are one out of the best offensive units in Stronghold Crusader 2, being fairly cheap while retaining high damage output. While their health is lowered due to the lack of metal armour, making them more susceptible to missile fire, they possess a charge ability.
When the maceman is issued a direct attack, it gains a huge movement speed bonus and he deals considerable damage upon contact. The ability needs to recharge for a short time. A group of charging maceman allows for taking out key units from combat, even Sassanid knights and templar knights.
