A Warrior is the most primitive and weakest found in many
shitholes Civilization games. It is one of the few units that are available from the beginning, as it doesn't need any specific requirements. In fact, it only needs a mom and a dad to be made *wink* *wink*. The word "warrior" comes from the ancient roman word, warrius, which means kick-ass walrus...wrong translation. Anyway, there's many types of warriors, though we're talking about the puny, ancient warrior that has loincloths.
The close equivalent in Civ is the Militia, which costs 10 shields as Militia like to use a shield and carry 9 behind his back just in case. It is the default offered for building when a new city is built and no stronger cannon fodder unit is available.
Feudalism obsoletes this unit making it useless as useless it already is. Leonardo's Workshop "upgrades" it to Musketeers, meaning giving it a vest and a musket without training...just like most draftees.
Upgrades to a Swordsman.
- Aztec unique unit Cat with Shield and Sword replaces the Warrior.
- If you are the Persians Or Romans the Warrior will not upgrade due to the nations' unique units: the Devil and the myth.
