|“||Foot warrior armed with a deadly club. Good against cavalry.||”|
The Club Warrior (War Club before the Definitive Edition) is a melee heavy infantry in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs that is unique to the Lakota and can be trained at the War Hut once the Commerce Age is reached.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Club Warrior is effective against cavalry and light infantry. It does melee damage and has a relatively good siege attack. Use the war club as a cavalry counter and a light infantry counter. The Club Warrior acts like a Pikeman to the Lakota with slightly more attack versus other units except cavalry.
It can be combined with Cetan Bowmen to form a cheap combo to take out infantry and cavalry. It can however be defeated by cavalry with a large amount of hit points and splash damage such the Cuirassier, Mahout Lancer, and the Spahi, or cavalry with a bonus against infantry like Lancer, Jat Lancer, etc.

History[edit | edit source]
|“||The Sioux constructed their war clubs out of a variety of substances: stone, wood, bone, antlers, horn, and sometimes incorporated steel blades. The one consistent feature was an efficacy in combat. One blow from one of these deadly weapons could cripple or kill a grizzly bear, let alone a human opponent.||”|
