The Aztec Chief is a unit exclusive in Age of Empires III. The unit makes its first debut appearance in Age of Empires III Act I Mission 5.

Unit Usage Edit

Seeing that the unit is relatively cheap, but provides some Hit Points and attack, it should be used only for as a front line distraction to protect other, more valuable, ranged units from melee defenders/attackers. In this scenario, the 40% resistance vs. melee works very well. The unit can also be utilized for the purpose of distracting an enemy, just as long as they evade enemy ranged units.

Note: This is a campaign or map editor unit

History Edit

"About Aztec leaders:

In the middle of the thirteenth century, the Aztec settled near lake Texcoco. A priest and ruler, Tenoch, oversaw the founding of the city Tenochtitlan and was the first Huei Tlatoani, or emperor. Eleven known rulers followed Tenoch, including Moctezuma II, the ruler who presided over the Aztec as the Spanish conquistadors under Cortes made landfall in 1519. Moctezuma II lived only another year. Two Tlatoani followed him: Cuitlahuac and the last Tlatoani of the Aztec, Cuauhtemoc, who was killed by the Spanish in 1824.
