Soldier is one of the five Spanish classes in Expeditions: Conquistador. This unit has unrivaled base defenses, as the defense of champions are 5 percent-points lower and they are the only classes who have access to the highest tier of armour. Combined with their two unique defence skills, soldiers are the best units for when it comes to soaking up damage and protecting other units. Combined with their high base damage scores, they are also good at inflicting high damage in melee as well, but scouts, amazons and champions are better.

In case units are out of melee range, they can use arquebuses or sometimes bows to shoot at enemies at distances. But due to their decent accuracy, soldiers will be outmatched by other classes such as hunters and trappers perform much better. And their movement of four hexes, compared to six in median, makes soldiers the least mobile units.

When it comes to camping, they can get the highest score in guarding or patrolling if the highest rank for this unit is veteran.
