Scouting is one of the most important activities in Cossacks 3. For the bulk of the game, the world-map is shrouded in a fog of war that is only uncovered as units pass through it.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • Build barracks, 17th century as soon as possible to start exploring. Build a cheap infantry unit and start scouting out the area near your base. Try to do it comprehensively, to avoid leaving blind spots.
  • Identify natural choke points and other terrain features that can help you funnel an attacker and break him up into more manageable chunks.
  • Early game raiding of enemy towns can help disrupt supply chains and, if caught unawares, cripple their early game economy.
  • Scouts are expendable, so don't worry if one dies. They do it for their King/Sultan/Hetman/Tsar/Bey/<insert own ruler title>!
