This article is about the building in Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms. For the building in Age of Empires: Return of Rome, see Barricade (Age of Empires).

The Barricade is an unconstructable building in Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms. Its use is to block passages and delay enemy units.

The Barricade is weaker than most buildings, but still significantly stronger than the Palisade Wall, and can be a dangerous obstacle if there are opposing ranged units behind. There are four different models of the Barricade. Barricades can be found in campaign scenarios, and in the Scenario Editor under the "Building" tab (previously under the "Other" tab).
