Age of Empires Castle Siege Wiki

Template:Unit Infobox The Mamluk is the unique unit of the Saracens. It has the lowest stats of all cavalry units but it has a ranged attack. Like all unique units they take up 2 army camp space. The Mamluk has no preferred target.

General Assessment


  • Fastest unit of the game.
  • Ranged attack.




  • Possibly the best unit for picking off buildings around the map due to high speed and a ranged attack. Mamluks are perhaps best used to skirmish at the beginning of a battle, killing defense units and buildings.
  • They also make excellent siege weapon defenders.
  • Mamluks are good in destroying emplacemets. Make a way for them to the emplacements and they will destroy and come back within seconds
  • Always hit and run with mamluks.
  • Don't use mamaluks to destroy towers.


  • Good in defense for high speed and attack. Very useful to take out Trebuchets the later the battle goes.
  • Keep in mind that aggressive stance Mamluk defenders are easily picked off by Pikemen at the start of a battle.
  • In the maze spawn-block style castle probably the best guard house choice due to their seriously fast speed.
