Just as the Darkspawn's rudimentary intelligence allows them to field Mages and swordsmen, they also produce archers who attack from afar. These Hurlock Darkspawn provide support fire with ranged weapons and are capable of utilizing longbows, shortbows or crossbows. Hurlock archers can be deadly depending on their talents. When encountered among groups that contain neither Genlock Emissaries, Hurlock Emissaries nor Ogres, target the archers first. This will leave the Darkspawn without any capacity for long range attacks.
