The Hastati are a class of infantry units in Rome: Total War; these infantry units are the primary units in the Roman factions before the Marian Reforms.

Historically the Hastati were the somewhat younger men in the Roman army. In the Rome - Total War setting, they belong to the light infantry class, they throw their pila first before charging the enemy. Overall the Hastati are a flexible unit in the game, however they can easily be routed by devastating cavalry charges or get destroyed by the heavy infantry.

Developement Edit

Speculations were originally made whether or not the Hastati units were swordsmen or spearman
