The Scythian Scout is a cavalry hero in Age of Empires II: The Conquerors that features in multiple campaigns, making its first appearance as a starting unit in Bukhara. It is also available in the Scenario Editor.
During the Sundjata campaign scenario Djeriba Gold, the player can also obtain eight Scythian Scouts (renamed as Malian Raiders) upon reaching the camp in the south of the map, which are excellent units thanks to their high pierce armor and health regeneration ability. In the Definitive Edition, they also appear in the The Scourge of God scenario of the Attila the Hun campaign.
- Despite being available, the Scythian Scout did not originally appear in the The Scourge of God scenario of the Attila the Hun campaign, but was replaced by a normal Scout Cavalry with 1,000 hit points. It makes an appearance in the Definitive Edition version of the scenario.
