The Cassador is a unique Portuguese unit in Age of Empires III.

OverviewEdit

The Cassador (Caçador, in the original Portuguese) is a light infantry unit similar to the Skirmisher, beating heavy infantry but are especially weak against cavalry and artillery, who easily decimate them.

Cassadors have far less health compared to the Skirmisher, but more than a Strelet. This weakness is compensated with a 0.50% ranged resistance (the highest out of any ranged infantry).

Although unlocked at the Fortress Age, a Portuguese player allied with a French player who has sent the TEAM Early Skirmisher card can train Cassadors in the Colonial Age. Like Skirmishers, Cassadors are at their base level and automatically upgrade into Veteran status upon reaching the Fortress Age.

UpgradesEdit

Cassadors benefit from Technologies found in the Arsenal, though better improvements for them are available at the Barracks once the player advances through the Ages.

History Edit

"The Cassador (also Cazador) was a Portuguese light infantry during the Napoleonic era. The name comes from the Portuguese word for hunter. They formed batallions consisting of five companies, four companies of Cassadores and one company of elite tiradores.

Cassadores in the nineteenth century wore brown uniforms and were armed with muskets or rifles. They carried brown backpacks and gray blankets. They wore stovepipe shako hats with prominent green plumes on the front.

Trivia Edit

The game files list these units as Cacadore. This may be because in Portuguese, the correct spelling is Caçador, which is pronounced like Cassador.
