  • Double Transport Ship Capacity

    To increase your transport ship capacity without researching any thing. Go into the siege weapons work shop and create a few battering rams. Then garrison some troops inside the battering rams (these have to be foot soldiers other wise it won't work). Then load them on to a transport ship and you'll be able to quadruple your transport ship capacity.

Age of Empires 2 Hints

  • Make Unit Faster

    When you click the make a man button on the toolbar click on the little flag where you can place the man you just started to create and keep clicking in the same place as fast as you can. It should double the time to make a man.

  • Super Wall

    This is hardly a cheat, more of a cheap win. note that this takes lots of time and stone to do. go to a corner in the map and build your desired town. then build your walls w. only castles. they are nearly impossible to destroy when they are used like that. i always just build a square mass of castles and its all over. just make sure you have workers to repair them. and if you have enough stone, simply built a single wall in front of the castle wall and then your castles are safe for a while. to get all the stone, use the code rock on. hit enter, then type rock on. highlight it, copy it, hit enter, hit enter again, and hit ctrl+v. use as needed. the castle wall takes lots of time, but it is foolproof. just remember to build that single wall, and i would put archers in the castles to give better attack. finally, build things that can destroy battering rams and catapults and you cant get touched.

  • Beat Enemy Almost Every Time

    Build your army almost every time. make an army of as many people as you can (I use spearmen) and separate them into two groups. use 1 expendable person to find a group MAKE SURE HE DIES THE ENEMY WILL FOLLOW HIM!!! then take one group and put him on one side and the other group on another side stay a healthy distance away until ready to attack make sure you outnumber them by a lot the ATTACK!!! it works almost every time.

  • More Bases Advantage

    To have a better chance of winning, build more than one base. Enlarge the base you start out with, making it completely fortified with at least two castles. Then, send a scout cavalry, or some other fast moving unit, to the opposite side of the map from your base. After you have checked the area and confirmed that it is safe, send a villager to build a castle at that location and fortify that base. This is very helpful if your enemy knows where one of your bases are located, especially during online play.

  • Lots of Gold, Wood, Meat, Stone

    First of all, get an ally or someone who is neutral with you, then get a market and buy over 20 trade carts (as many as you want but the more carts the more gold) and make them all trade with the other person's market and watch the gold when they come back. (note:check that their route is ok for any enemies lurking nearby, if so send some archers or cavalry to protect them.)

  • Get Teutonic Knights Without Being Teutons

    When teutons are your enemy choose easy as difficulty and when playing get lots of monks (about 20) and when they send over a teutonic knight get all the monks to convert him and a few monks will die but the others will convert him. make more monks to take the over dead monks place and wait for another attacks and do exactly the same as above and you can get as many as you want without being teutons.

  • Get A Longbowman

    When you are another team in a death match, there is not meant to be a tick on the lock team's square when you just went into the death match icon - when you are in a game get a monk and go to press start and go to tick diplomacy and you allies are Britons and then you change allies to enemies the Britons don't attack you then you convert the longbowman

  • Destroy Allies Easy

    When you are playing a regicide and you want to kill the allies, (this could be because you want their relics or because you are really weird) upgrade to the imperial age and build a siege workshop. then train a load of cannoneers. move your forces into the enemies base and tell your hand cannoneers to attack ground on on of their buildings and it actually does damage to it! i tried with trebuchets but it didn't work. you can do this on any level where you have an ally.

  • Kill King Easy in Regicide

    TO DO THIS PUT DIFFICULTY ON TO VERY EASY/EASY. AT START OF GAME BUILD A MARKET. YOUR OPPONENT SHOULD NOW CHANGE HIS STANCE TO NEUTRAL AND WILL ASK YOU TO SEND HIM 200 EACH OF WOOD FOOD GOLD AND STONE [SOMETIMES JUST 200 OF ONE THING!] SEND HIM HIS AMOUNT OF GOODS. WHEN HE SAYS LET US BE FRIENDS HENCEFORTH... CHANGE YOUR STANCE TO ALLY. BUILD A MASSIVE ARMY. BUILD BOMBARD TOWERS ALL ROUND HIS AND HIS CASTLE AND TOWN CENTRE. BUILD A FORTIFIED WALL ROUND HIS CASTLE AS WELLS AS BOMBARD TOWERS. SEND YOUR ARMY INTO HIS BASE. SWITCH YOU STANCE TO ENEMY. WHEN THE CASTLE HAS FALLEN [BECAUSE OF BOMBARD TOWERS] THE KING WON'T ESCAPE DUE TO THE FACT THAT HE IS SUCH BEHIND A WALL! JUST LET BOMBARD TOWERS FINISH HIM IF THEY CAN REACH IF NOT USE TREBUCHETS AND MANGONELS.
