Back to Units
In Civilization VI, a unique unit is a special unit that is only available to a specific civilization. Some leaders also have unique abilities that give them access to unique units once they discover the appropriate technology or civic. Unique units do not require resources and have special attributes that make them superior to standard units.
Note that, unlike in Civilization V, unique units do not always replace standard units. When they do not, they are usually available at different technological levels than the respective standard unit, are typically stronger, and upgrade to a much later unit. Note also that such units cannot be upgraded from earlier units! They need to be built specifically.
Below is a list of unique units which currently appear in the game, sorted by era.
