How To Unlock Every Secret Unit | Easter Eggs Guide

To find new units, you need to locate their weapons hidden in certain levels. You’ll need to activate Freelook and move the camera around yourself — press [F] to unlock freeroam and you’ll be able to find these hidden weapons. Keep your camera next to the weapon for a bit to unlock them.

Executioner:

  • Level: Medieval 1
  • Cost: 350

This heavy-duty axe-wielding unit is unlocked by finding his axe. It’s embedded in a tree trunk — more specifically, a stump.

Mace Spinner:

  • Level: Medieval 2
  • Cost: 500

Spins around with a pair of maces — and when buffed by cheer leaders, becomes a wild tornado! Find it in one of the tower spires. Use freelook to fly through the open tower window and down inside. The maces are surrounded by birds.

Artemis: 

  • Level: Ancient 1
  • Cost: 5500

A unit that shoots a crazy amount of arrows with double bows. Find it on the lighthouse, at the top along the railings.

Samurai Giant:

  • Level: Dynasty
  • Cost: 3000

Fly down the square-shaped well to find the giant samurai’s huge katana sticking out of the underside of the well. The Samurai Giant is — well — a giant Samurai with a crazy-huge sword.

Fan Bearer:

  • Level: Ancient Sandbox
  • Cost: 200

A simpler unit that blows enemies away with fans instead of destroying them outright. Find the fan resting against a small shrine, near the edge of the island, by some stairs.

The Teacher:

  • Level: Ancient 2
  • Cost: 300

A well-trained swordsman. Find his weapon in the open temple with a statue of the Thinker inside.

Ice Giant:

  • Level: Viking 1
  • Cost: 6000

Find the massive skull on the edge of the map, near the cracked ice-covered lake. It’s in the forest along the shore. The Ice Giant is the most expensive units, and sends groups of enemies flying with his explosive shockwave attacks.

Sensei:

  • Level: Dynasty
  • Cost: 3000

A fast-throwing ninja star unit, you can find his shuriken on the roof of the building right in the middle of the map — where the red and blue lines meet.

Wheelbarrow Dragon:

  • Level: Farmer 1
  • Cost: 1600

Here’s a weird unit. You’ll find the dragon’s head nestled behind rocks on the edge of the map. Instead of a living, breathing, flying dragon — this dragon is in a wheelbarrow that gets pushed around. Kind of like a mobile flamethrower.

Tree Giant:

  • Level: Medieval 1
  • Cost: 4000

A giant that swings a big tree around as a weapon. Find their tree — it’s a small-ish tree on the edge of the map, near a cliff above the water.

Cheer Leader:

  • Level: Tribal 1
  • Cost: 1000

This handy unit makes nearby units attack faster, giving special bonus effects to some. Find the cheer leader’s pair of pom-poms on the very edge of the map, on the red side of the red / blue border.

Shogun:

  • Level: Dynasty
  • Cost: 2000

Stuck in a tree on the cliffs below the center dividing line of the map. The Shogun is a powerful samurai-like unit that cuts down enemies with ease.
