Just a silly question, do Gastraphetes benifit from the various archer upgrades that Hades gets. They ARE archers, but they don't show up in any of the archer modifying tech descriptions.

An assimilating strat is the best strat

cake0792 is right, Gastraphetes benefit from Apollo's sunray, Hades' archer bonus, and Hephestus' Weapon of the Titans and the general Greek Beastslayer upgrades. Bow of horror and (ares) Plague shafts (Artemis) DO NOT affect Gasts, although apparently Plague did before the expansion.

I recommend using massed gast's with a light screen of hoplites, with the armor upgrades Athena gives them. Hades-Athena-Apollo-Heph.

Gastras do benefit from the normal archer upgrades like medium+heavy+champion.

The only ups that dont effect them are Ares special tox (bow of ares i think) up and Artemis (Bow of horror if i remember correctly) but that is already said here.

also toxotes and other archers get a 500% bonus vs buildings with flaming arrows but gastraphetes get only 300% boost.

Shafts of Plague DID affects Gastras PIERCE attack on vanilla. Not Crush Damage.
On TT they're affected by Sun Ray (Apollo), Weapons of the Titans (Hephaestus), Hades' Bonus and Line upgrades (armory too, obviously)...

All men dream, just not some as much as others. Some men dream of great things in the dark of night, but when morning comes they see that these things are out of their reach and forget them. Other men dream in the day, these men are dangerous men indeed, for they dream of change and conquest and fight for it with unmatched strength. These are the Chaos Knights
