Stealth Mode

Stealth mode is a special ability introduced in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs. Available to a limited range of units, activating this mode renders the unit invisible to enemy Line of Sight. While in this mode, units move at half their normal speed. They no longer engage enemy units automatically and will abandon stealth if ordered to attack by the player.

Units cannot switch to stealth mode if enemy units or buildings are nearby.

Some units and buildings have the Sees Stealth tag and will uncloak stealthy enemy units within their LOS. Not all stealthy units are also anti-stealth. Notable anti-stealth units include virtually all Heroes and Explorers, Forts and Town Centers.

When Spies is researched, the player can see other players' stealth units whether they're in stealth mode or not.
