The Mapuche are a minor civilization in Age of Empires III.


The Mapuche are available as allies on the Araucania map only. Once a trading post is built at their camp, a player can recruit Mapuche ironwood clubmen and research available upgrades.


The Mapuche ironwood clubman is similar to a pikeman type unit, while less useful than the typical pikeman versus cavalry they are better at destroying buildings due to their higher hit points. They can be potent building destroyers if the Mapuche tactics upgrade is purchased.


Mapuche upgrades focus on increasing an allies gold reserves and anti-building attacks.

  • Mapuche Ad-mapu has been patched, reducing coin costs by 10% instead of 20%.
  • Mapuche tactics is strong for any civilization, however it is incredibly powerful for the Japanese, boosting their basic samurai anti-building attack to 100 (125 with Onin War) and the ashigaru musketeers to 31 (39 with Onin War).
  • All native tribes can only be upgraded to Legendary/Exalted status at the town center or capitol, they can be upgraded to Elite/Disciplined or Champion/Honored for free through some home city shipments.
  • Civilizations can remove the upgrade gold costs, or cut the upgrade costs in half depending on their home city cards.

In-game dialogueEdit

They speak Mapudungun, an isolated language which means it is unrelated to any language.
