The list of units
The Warrior is late Stone Age infantry, armed with stone axes and clubs.
It is the first military unit that can be made.
- The Enkidu Warrior replaces the Warrior for the Sumerians.
- The Jaguar Warrior replaces the Warrior for the Aztecs.
- After Civilization III: Conquests, both the Warrior and Jaguar Warrior are available to the Aztecs. The Jaguar Warrior now requires Warrior Code and costs more.
The earliest military forces were simply the citizens of the city, armed with whatever implements they could use as weapons. Although a militia made up of warriors was inexpensive, they were no match for organized armies. Warriors were usually used as stopgap measures while waiting for superior units to be trained, or to defend a city that had been temporarily cut off from military support. In a crisis situation, an assembly of warriors is better than no defense at all.
