Eagle Warriors and their upgraded versions Elite Eagle Warriors are light Mesoamerican Infantry in Age of Empires II: The Conquerors and are available in the Castle Age to only the Aztecs and Mayans. Eagle Warriors, but not their Elite counterpart, automatically receive +3 damage upon reaching the Castle Age. In addition the Aztec unique technology provides another +4 attack and the Mayan unique technology provides a +40 hit points. Eagle Warriors move quickly, have a long line of sight, and have conversion resistance and bonus damage against Monks. They also have a bonus against siege weapons and a small anti-cavalry bonus; however, almost every other infantry unit deals bonus damage against Eagle Warriors. Essentially, they help compensate for the Aztecs' and Mayans' lack of cavalry. They can be upgraded to Elite Eagle Warriors in the Imperial Age at the cost of 800 Food and 500 Gold.

Overview Edit

The Aztecs prized fighting skills, and soldiers earned increased status in society through distinction in combat and promotion in rank. One of the higher ranks was that of Eagle Warrior. These fighters wore great colorful headdresses made of eagle feathers and costumes that enhanced their military bearing. Because they were lightly armored and unencumbered, they were able to move quickly. They were the fast, light troops of the Aztec armies, quickly pouncing on enemies. However, they proved to be at a great disadvantage in combat against Europeans wearing steel armor and using steel weapons.

The best of the Eagle warriors were promoted to Elite status. These were the champions of the Eagle Warrior formations and led the attempts to disable and capture enemies.
