The Native Scout is an infantry unit in Age of Empires III.

OverviewEdit

Native Scout is a unit with high speed and LOS but low hitpoints and attack. The French civilization starts out with one at the start of the game. Scout can be rescued as Treasures, or sent from the Trading Post or it can also be sent from Home City/Tribal Council. The Scout can move very fast, and has an extensive Line of Sight, however, they cannot attack with any effect. In The Warchiefs expansion pack, the Native Scout is given the ability to use Stealth, which makes it invisible from enemy units and buildings, but at a cost of speed. If the scout gets too close to an enemy unit or building which has see stealth ability like Explorer, Town Center etc., while using the stealth ability, it will become visible and attackable again. The Warchiefs Civilizations can train native scout from their Town Center with the help of one shipment card called Advanced Scout.

The Aztecs, Iroquois, and Sioux can train the Native Scout from their Town Centers through the Advanced Scout shipment card that also increases the Scouts' attack and hitpoint making them more effective in combat. It increases its hitpoints by 50% and attack by 200% making it much more durable and more powerful they can be now used for combat purposes. They can be better than Coyote Runners in some situations (see Beatnik Joe's Aztec Scout Slam for an example of this).

History Edit

"Europeans who colonized the Americas often sought help from Native American scouts. The scouts were mostly used to gather intelligence on enemy military movements. In 1866, Congress passed a statute that established a branch of the military known as the "Indian Scouting Service." This formalized the relationship between Native American Scouts and the United States Army. When fighting Native Americans in the west, the United States made use of historic tribal animosities by recruiting scouts from the enemy of whomever they were fighting. For example, Pawnees scouted against the Cheyenne, and Crow scouts helped General Custer before the Battle of Little Bighorn."

TriviaEdit

  • The language spoken by the Scout is the same as the Nootka, regardless of the random tribe name he is given.
