Camel Warriors are a type of cavalry in Napoleon: Total War.


Mounted on camels, these warriors are particularly effective in melee and terrifying when on the charge.

Living in a desert makes a man tough and ruthless, or dead. The weak do not survive, and this fierce life produces proud and dangerous warriors. Their battle skills have been honed by years of raiding, goat thievery and fighting against the more settled people of oasis villages. The smell of camels riding into battle terrifies horses, giving these Bedouin warriors the edge over European cavalry. However, should they meet European elite infantry their weakness becomes apparent as their cumbersome steeds make excellent targets.

Traditionally, the name Bedouin is derived from the Arabic word ‘Bedu’ meaning ‘inhabitant of the desert.’ The Bedouin were among the most dangerous of desert tribes, fighting among themselves when outsiders weren’t available. Constantly on the move to find new pastures for their livestock, the Bedouin learned to live with the minimum of possessions and external support in the harshest of conditions. Loyalty to tribe and family was all that helped a man survive.

General InformationEdit

Camel Warriors compare similarly to Shaturnal Camel Gunners and Camel Gunners: their stats are mostly similar, though they have somewhat superior charging and melee bonuses at the cost of being constrained to melee fighting only. As with the other camel units, Camel Warriors are some of the only units in the game that have both the "good stamina" bonus and resistance to heat fatigue. This, combined with their innate ability to scare horses, gives them a very strong edge in terms of stamina against almost any other cavalry in the Egyptian Campaign (where all battlefields feature heat fatigue). Their stats are only average, however, and they can face an uphill battle against well-rested cavalry or infantry. Their slow speed limits the effectiveness of their charging, and makes them vulnerable to artillery fire.
