Scouts move quickly, and bring back information about enemy positions and numbers, but are not strong fighters.
Where to use
Scouts can be used to scout wildernesses and enemy cities. They are only good for scouting though.
do not use in defense against other troops only use in defense against scouts
- They are the only unit that can intercept other scouts. (only if you defend. cannot kill enemy scoute if they hide their troops before you scout.)
- Scouts can also substitute as a very fast transport. (not efectively- use cavalry instead as they move about as fast)
