Winter edition with improvements by Q. Shoots smaller rockets at a higher rate. Only Winsett's mom knows how to turn this on. She's got the keys.
—In-game description in the Definitive Edition

Winsett's other Z is a cheat unit introduced in Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome. The unit spawns at the most recently built Town Center. Like its stronger sibling, the Winsett's Z, it consists of a fast sports car with a futuristic person in it holding a rocket launcher. The only difference between Winsett's other Z and Winsett's Z is the car body's colour and the former's lower attack.

Although its attack is only 1/5 of the Winsett's Z, it makes this up for its increased Rate of Fire which makes it fire three times faster. The car's color is white instead of black, and uses the same 1995 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 model, which is also used for the Winsett's Z. It is also available in the Scenario Editor (Definitive Edition onwards).

Winsett's other Z deals blast damage. If placed at a high elevation, the attack can be as high as 180 per hit. In-game stats reveal that it deals 60 damage per strike, but it actually deals double that amount of damage.


  • In Return of Rome, the unit previously had the same icon as the Cobra Car from Age of Empires II. With update 95810, they received a unique icon.
  • The new model in Return of Rome also has a faint logo of Forgotten Empires on the car's hood.
