I was playing a game in G+K when my AI team mates started attacking some city states. I noticed that the catapults and even the pike men were throwing fireballs. How do I do that? I know players can do that.

    That is just part of the animation when a unit tries to take a city... you can't literally get "fireballs"... – Dom Aug 10 '13 at 22:39

    @Crubleigh Does it really matter if they are or not? Does it help your question at all to make note of that fact? – Frank Aug 12 '13 at 17:18

    @fbueckert It's just interesting and I find it funny. – Crubleigh Aug 12 '13 at 17:24

    I didn't know calling something "retarded" was a way to express that it's funny and interesting. – user98085 Aug 12 '13 at 17:31

    I found their behavior (being stupid) interesting and funny. – Crubleigh Aug 12 '13 at 17:35

As @Dom commented, this is the standard animation for many units when attacking cities. You have no control over it, nor does it have any special effect.

  • So instead of attacking it, a melee unit will shoot fireballs instead? – Crubleigh Aug 11 '13 at 0:49
  • @Crubleigh When attacking a city, that is their attack. Swords and pikes won't do much against walls. – Frank Aug 11 '13 at 0:58

    @Crubleigh It's been a while since I played with the animations turned on, but I think they look more like flaming torches than fireballs. They are certainly throwing something--not shooting. – David Harkness Aug 11 '13 at 6:35
  • Think of the fireballs as Molotov Cocktails or something. – SaintWacko Aug 12 '13 at 17:25
