The Organ Gun is an artillery unit unique to the Portuguese in Age of Empires III.

Overview Edit

The Organ Gun is the Portuguese's version of the Falconet. Unlike the Falconet, the Organ Gun hits multiple times at an enemy target to mimic the Falconet's damage.

While it's slightly cheaper than the Falconet and only costs 4 population, the Organ Gun has less health and damage penalty modifiers against many targets. The Falconet has damage boosting modifiers. Organ Guns are still useful in clearing out clumps of units, as Falconets can occasionally leave a few units behind because of their single cannon fire compared to a burst from an Organ Gun.


Other upgrades can be done in Arsenal or from shipments.


Rabauld is the first upgrade for the Organ Gun. It is available for 250 food and 250 wood once Industrial Age is reached.

Hit Points: +25% (187)
Siege Damage: +25% (41)

Imperial Field GunsEdit

Imperial Field Gun is the second upgrade for the Organ Gun. It is available for 1500 wood and 1500 coin once Imperial Age is reached.

Hit Points: +50% (262)
Siege Damage: +50% (57)

Shipments Edit

This is a list of shipments that benefit Organ Guns in any way.


"Also called a ribauldequin, this Renaissance-era gun's multiple iron barrels line up side by side. These small caliber (for artillery) projectiles were meant to be fired at the same time, creating a wave of fearsome iron that could tear ranks of enemy foot and cavalry soldiers apart."
