The Ranch Watch is a ranged infantry unit unique to the NPC faction Lon Lon Ranch.
Lon Lon Ranch was a target for many would be conquerors, and many attempts have been made to remove the Lontha Family as owners. Ranch Watches were hired to man the walls of the property and keep an eye out for attackers. Should the situation turn bad they could defend the ranch with their bows and arrows.
Ranch Watches are a cheap form of archer units available to train from the Lon Lon Ranch building upon capturing it.
A number of hostile Ranch Watches can be found guarding Lon Lon Ranch, and must be defeated before the settlement can be captured. Much like Lon Lon Guard Towers, they are capable of attacking passing units outside the Ranch's walls.
