Pierce Armor is an armour type used in Age of Empires series. Unlike ordinary armor which resists melee damage, pierce armor resists the amount of missile damage depending on the number of points the unit has. The armor only resists projectiles fired from any unit.

The Blacksmith provides cavalry, infantry and archers with additional pierce armor. Certain units, such as the Huskarl, Battering Ram, and unpacked Trebuchet come with high amounts of pierce armor, rendering them almost immune to archer fire.
