The Camel Rider is an Egyptian Cavalry Unit in Age of Empires Online. PvP Values which are different are put in brackets ().


  • Adept in mobility, the Camel Rider easily defeats other Cavalry units but is vulnrable to attacks from spearmen.
  • As of Project Celeste's PvP Balance Patch 15, the Camel Riders deal 20% less damage to one another, but their damage against other cavalry remains the same. This was done in response to them being too squishy in mirror matchups, due to prior a PvP hitpoint nerf in Balance Patch 3.

Equipment SlotsEdit



The Camel Rider was a rider and camel dressed in light to medium armor. Due to the Camel's resilience to desert conditions unlike horses. They were not fully used as a military unit until 500-100 B.C.E. under the Egyptians and Persians. Camels that were not in battle would be used as logistical support. The Camel was good enough for the Romans to create a Camel Rider auxiliary force know as Dromedarii.


  • Camels can secure players map control in the early game with their high speed.
  • Because of their bonus against cavalry they make good anti-raiders as well.
