One of the strangest and most dire tools utilized by the undead Scourge is the dreaded Meat Wagon. This rickety contraption is used to collect and store recently slain corpses from the field of battle. At any time, corpses can be pulled from the Meat Wagon and raised into undead warriors. The Meat Wagon can also 'fling' diseased corpses at enemy units by use of a crude catapult device. An invaluable support vehicle for the Scourge, the Meat Wagon strikes fear and woe into the hearts of even the most resolute defenders.

Corpse storage machine. Also serves as long-range siege weaponry. Exceptional damage versus buildings, but slow and vulnerable. Can learn the Disease Cloud ability. Attacks land units and trees.

Meat Wagons can pick up to a total of 8 Corpses. They can also drop Corpses. An advanced strategy is to collect corpses then dump them in front of enemy towns to make Skeleton Warriors.

Meat Wagons use a Meat-A-Pult™ to fling Corpses at the enemy.

Be sure to research Disease Cloud Aura so that you can infect the enemy with annoying disease. =)

Meat Wagons have a minimum range which means they cannot attack melee units or any units right next to them. You will have to move them away to hit targets right next to them.

Bring Acolytes with Meat Wagons to repair them during and after battle.
