Age of Empires Series Wiki

Ranged cavalry attack and range increased.
—In-game description

Ranged Cavalry Caracole is a technology in Age of Empires III that can be researched by European civilizations at the Arsenal; Haudenosaunee and Lakota can also research it at the Longhouse and the Teepee respectively once the New Ways Home City Card has been sent. Once researched, it increases the attack of light cavalry by 10% as well as their line of sight and range by 2.

Range is essential for any ranged unit, so any civilization using Dragoons or similar will want to purchase this upgrade when possible.


Definitive Edition[]

  • Ranged Cavalry Caracole now properly affects Comancheros.


  • The Caracole is a special manoeuvre for turning a horse about, although this does not effect the movement animation in-game.
