The Gatling Gun is a special artillery unit available in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs.

Overview Edit

The Gatling Gun is unusual compared to the other artillery pieces in the game; it is the precursor to modern-day machine guns and fires projectiles at a rapid rate, which is useful in killing enemy infantry units at a brisk pace. The Gatling Gun becomes available to players if they choose to revolt from their European civilization in the Industrial Age. While devastating against infantry they are less effective against cavalry and buildings, doing reduced damage against them. However due to their high rate of fire they can still do some damage against them if in groups.
