The Bosniak is an expensive heavy cavalry unit with high hit points, base attack, and better siege damage than the typical Lancer. It is effective against light infantry, but vulnerable against heavy infantry and light cavalry.
Bosniaks are armed with a lance, which grants them slightly more range than other cavalry units. Their melee attack deals additional damage against infantry units (mainly archers and Skirmishers), but also deals slightly more damage against cavalry and shock infantry. Therefore, Bosniaks could be considered as the mercenary version of the Chinaco, but having resistance against ranged damage instead of melee.
Additionally, Bosniaks benefit from the Combat Promotion. This ability increases their hit points and attack for each defeated enemy military unit, up to a maximum of three units. For the first defeated unit they get +10% hit points and attack; +20% hit points and attack for the second defeated unit; +30% hit points and attack. These values can be higher with Home City Cards or upgrades that benefit cavalry units.
Lance Charge: (automatically activated when attacking with a cooldown of 60 seconds): The Bosniak charges at the enemy with his lance, which deals 67.5 damage (101.25 against Infantry, 45.225 against Heavy infantry, 90.45 against Hand cavalry and 81 against Shock Infantry), has a range of 4 and an AOE of 3.

Originally, Bosniaks had 600 hit points and 50 attack, and cost 300 coin. With update 13.10442, they have 550 hit points and 45 attack, and cost 350 coin.
Although nominally from Bosnia, Bosniaks were in reality drawn from all over Central Europe, Eastern Europe, and the Balkans. These units served as irregular cavalry in other European armies, most notably those of Germany, the Netherlands, and Denmark. Flourishing during the 18th century, especially during the Seven Years' War, Bosniak cavalry could immediately be recognized by their distinct hats and black uniforms with white and colored ornaments.
