This article is about the building in Age of Empires III. For the building in other games of the series, see Gate.
The Gate is a defensive structure in Age of Empires III. Its purpose is to have an opportunity to let friendly units through Walls while keeping enemies out. Unlike in Age of Empires II where the Gate is built as a separate structure, Walls are simply clicked on and selected to become a Gate.

The Wall, Church (for European civilizations), or Mosque (for the Ottomans) provides the Bastion upgrade for Gates, along with Walls, granting +150% hit points.

Trivia Edit

  • Unlike its counterpart in Age of Empires II, if friendly units cause the Gate to open, enemy units cannot pass nor keep the Gate open.
  • Gaia controlled units such as trade carts, stagecoaches, trains, birds, etc. will cause Gates to open and close.
