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.

- 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.
