Ranged warrior who hurls bolas for a wide area of effect. The bola slows down enemies. Good against cavalry.
—In-game description

The Bolas Warrior is a heavy ranged infantry in Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition that is unique to the Incas and can be trained at the Kallanka and Stronghold. It hurls the namesake bolas which causes AoE damage and slows the enemies.

Overview[edit | edit source]

While visually similar to its native warrior predecessor Incan Bolas Warrior, the Bolas Warrior's stats are closer to those of a Dragoon or Eagle Runner Knight, and as such, it is more effective against cavalry than infantry.

Upgrades[edit | edit source]

The Bolas Warrior starts as Elite, but without the increased hit points and attack.
