Drush AOE2 Build Orders

Here you will find different AOE2 Drush build orders. Most of these are generic build orders that can be used with any civilization. There is, however, a build order that is specific to the Lithuanians which takes advantage of their 150 extra starting food, transitioning in to 21 population scouts with ease.

A “Drush” is a dark age rush, where you attack your enemy with militia, quite early in the game. The main aim of a drush strategy is to distract your opponent, causing them to stop villager production or to stop the villagers from collecting resources. Your aim is not to kill villagers, just buy yourself time to get an economic advantage over your opponent or prevent them from walling their base. This will allow your main rush to enter the enemy base and cause some serious damage! Quite often, you will see this strategy with Goths, Aztecs, Bulgarians and Japanese but at higher levels it is used with almost any civilization in order to prevent the walls from being built.
