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 (Not recommended you will lose scouts either way for wildernesses) and enemy cities. They are only effective at scouting though.
Do not use in defending against oncoming enemys unless they are scouts.
- They are the only unit that can intercept other scouts. (only if you defend. cannot kill enemy scout if they hide their troops before you scout.)
- Scouts can also substitute as a very fast transport. (not efectively- use cavalry instead as also move fast)
