The Colonist is a unit in Civilization: Beyond Earth.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Colonist is a unit analogous to the Settler of previous Civilization games. Capable of establishing outposts and their resultant cities, the Colonist is the best tool for expansion in Beyond Earth. What the Colonist has in the ability to found a home, however, is well balanced against their lack of defensive or offensive capabilities. When cornered by enemy units, the Colonist is a sitting duck, easily captured. This makes them a risky proposition, as they must either be trusted to the luck or folly of your opponent, or partnered with defensive units such as the Soldier, which can dramatically increase the total cost of expeditions and settlement.

Unit description: Civilian Unit. Can establish an outpost, which transforms into a full city once time passes and it acquires the territory adjacent to it.
