Loyalists and tories provided crack/elite forces to the British. They also eroded American trust and support for independence. Tories were able to infiltrate American societies easily. Loyalists were armed like Americans, with long rifles able for sniping and special missions like the Americans used to success. The british used them poorly; the loyalists could have done much more.
