The Allied Raider Cannoneer is a powerful indirect-attack Raider unit. For a low-level unit, the Allied Cannoneer packs a punch, especially since very few units have damage reduction against -type damage, let alone survive the 100 average damage in the earlier stages. However, the costs to build this unit are prohibitive since is extremely hard to come by at earlier levels, and even more so at any level. And by the time a player has obtained a surplus of the necessary resources, there are better artillery units that the player can take advantage of.
Nevertheless, these are one of the few Allied Raiders that are worth investing time and resources.
