The Explorer is a unit in Civilization: Beyond Earth.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Explorer is a long-standing unit type in Civilization games - designed to do exactly what they are named for, the Explorer unit has no real offensive capacity, and is meant to be used for early exploration and expansion rather than dedicated military campaigning. This is not to say they are without the ability to defend themselves, however; with a somewhat limited strength rating, they are nonetheless capable of self defense, and can stem the flow of enemy units long enough for reinforcements to arrive at a beleaguered city or outpost.

Unit description: Exploration Unit. Ideal for scouting the terrain, opposing forces, and alien activity, its light combat strength gives it modest defense, but it is not suited to full-scale warfare.
