Canoe and War Canoe[sic] attack increased.
—In-game description

Flaming Arrows is a Big Button technology in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs that is unique to the Lakota and can be researched at the Dock once the Commerce Age is reached. Once researched, it increases the attack of all warships (despite the description saying it affects Canoes and War Canoes) by 30%.

With the Industrial Age Old Ways Home City shipment, the cost is reduced to 200 food, 100 coin.


Flaming Arrows make the Lakota Canoes and War Canoes deadlier in combat.
