Cheyenne horseman armed with a spear. Good against other Cavalry.
—In-game description

The Cheyenne Rider is a heavy cavalry native warrior in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs that can be trained at a Trading Post built on a Cheyenne settlement which replaces the Lakota in the expansion, thus the Cheyenne Rider acts as a replacement to the Lakota Axe Rider.

Overview[]

The Cheyenne Rider is a heavy cavalry good against artillery and light infantry. One of its features is it has multipliers against cavalry and shock infantry, which can be enhanced with Cheyenne Fury, boosting its performance as all-rounding heavy cavalry like Chinacos, but only vulnerable to light cavalry and heavy infantry. This weakness can be negated by combining with light infantry.

It has -7.5% total cost, -6.25% hit points, -10% ranged resistance, and -30% base damage compared to a Hussar, but has a ×1.5 multiplier against all cavalry and a ×1.25 multiplier against shock infantry. At base, it is pretty unimpressive, but upon researching Cheyenne Fury, its attack multiplier against cavalry and shock infantry increases, making it do 66.67% and 64% more damage respectively against them than before. This makes it a hard counter against other heavy cavalry and makes it trade more evenly, forcing hit and run tactics from light ranged cavalry.

The Cheyenne Rider is also naturally good at raiding and against exposed light infantry and artillery (its damage per second against artillery is only -4.55% of a Dragoon in melee mode) like normal for heavy cavalry, even without an increased multiplier.

History[]

To the Native peoples of the North American plains, the horse represented both freedom and power. Horses were prized possessions to the Cheyenne, and were significant spoils of war. When armed with a lance, a mounted Cheyenne warrior presented a fearsome foe.

Before Cheyenne warriors engaged in battle, their leaders carefully planned their raids in detail. To kill one's enemy in battle was of course a good thing to the Cheyenne warrior. But of even greater importance was the act of touching a living, unhurt man and leave him unscathed, a practice known as "counting coup." The bravest warriors were known to go into battle with only a coup stick, a twig or carved piece of wood, sometimes decorated with fur or feathers.
