The Catapult Trireme is a large naval unit with a Catapult mounted on top of the deck in Age of Empires. It fires every 3 seconds and throws large rocks and boulders toward enemy targets at a long distance. Once the Trireme has been upgraded, the technology which enables Catapult Trireme becomes available at the Dock. Like all stone throwing heavy siege weapons, Catapult Triremes deal 28 bonus damage against buildings after accounting for building armor.

  • Greek: Catapult Triremes are 30% faster.
  • Phoenicians: Catapult Triremes fire 66% faster.

  • Yamato: Catapult Triremes have 30% more HP.
  • Macedonians: Catapult Triremes are four times more resistant against conversion.

Strategy Edit

It has fewer hit points and fires slower than its original counterpart, but fills it up with strength per projectile, more range and does damage to a certain location rather than a single unit. Because of its relative low amount of hit points compared to other units, a successful naval victory through a full-scale assault can be obtained by escorting them with a large group of triremes.

Being a Trireme, it is not an upgrade to Trireme itself, but a separate unit. It can be upgraded into a Juggernaut once Engineering is researched. It benefits from such researches as Alchemy for its attack strength, Ballistics for its accuracy and Engineering for its range.
