Appears in Total War: Attila

The Huns are a nomadic tribal faction in Total War: Attila that come with the vanilla game. They are unique in that they can never settle without mods. 


The aura of terror surrounding the Huns is so great that their enemies are barely able to conceive that they are also human beings.

In truth, the Huns’ equine expertise is what makes them such formidable foes. In battle, their combination of ranged attacks and the speed with which they can cover ground is breathtaking – and terrifying – to behold. In this way, the Huns have swept into Europe and now threaten Rome itself.

However, they must act swiftly to turn this chaos into an empire. While their leaders’ arguments rage, the horde waits, paralyzed, for the arrival of a man. A man powerful enough to unite the Hunnic peoples and bind them to his singular will…

As the Huns travel across the landscape, they exact a terrible toll on those around them, snatching regional food supplies at will and undermining the enemy’s ability to replenish their armies. Hordes also become more loyal with each fresh declaration of war, and razing settlements brings fresh blood to their ranks. Needless to say, the Huns are fearsome warriors, and to Christian soldiers in particular, they are a monstrous and demoralizing force to face on the field of battle.

In Game AnnouncementEdit

"Hailing from the eastern steppes, yours is a life of constant movement and conflict. Your arrival has driven many from their homelands in fear: the Goths have fled southwest-wards, give chase and you will find the fertile lands of the Eastern Roman Empire.

The Vandals run west. There you will find the Western Roman Empire: weaker than its eastern cousin, but perhaps easier to exploit.

In the southeast lies the wealthy Sassanid Empire: ripe for plundering.

Before you take on the supposed masters of the civilized world, you will do well to strengthen your position by subjugating the northern tribes.

The world will dance to your tune ... or it will burn!"
