Age of Empires Series Wiki

The Pyramid is an unconstructable building in Age of Empires II. Used only for decoration is campaign scenarios, Pyramids have no actual use in-game. Though extremely bulky, they actually help the player with nothing but provide Line of Sight. Pyramids always look the same, no matter what color the player plays with. They are also available in the Scenario Editor.

Campaign appearances[]



  • When the Pyramid is destroyed, the rubble left behind is the original rubble from Age of Empires.
  • Pyramids have a hidden construction cost of 1,000 wood, 1,000 gold, and 1,000 stone (like the Wonder) which is only relevant to repairing as it cannot be constructed.
  • In The Conquerors, the third phase on fire is bugged, with a lot of fires, icicles and a total of 8 garrisons. The garrisons use the owning player's color.
