Bees and stakes
Age of Empires IV is approaching with its share of novelties, and inevitably this includes weapons intended to destroy the adversary. News trailers very short highlight 2 of them.
The first video of this series aptly titled “Weapons of war”, we get to know the Honeycomb, which allows to draw hundreds of projectiles at a rather impressive speed. We necessarily think of the famous Hwachas developed by Koreans in the 15th century.
More classic, the second weapon presented is the palis. It is simply a question of stakes planted at an angle in the ground to impale the cavalry who would decide to charge, especially on the archers.
