The Cirith Ungol Barracks is where orcs and uruks under the control of Gorbag and Shagrat are produced. They take a break from fighting each other to take on the enemies of Mordor.
Level Up / Upgrades Edit
Unlike many buildings of other factions, the Cirith Ungol Barracks does not have level up upgrades. Instead, it levels up as it produces orcs.
Influence of Sauron - Sauron can use his level 3 ability, Influence of Sauron, to imbue this building with his will:
- Enables the production of Black Uruk Archers.

Black Uruk Archers require the Influence of Sauron upgrade.
This is the most expensive settlement structure in the game, but it has a superb function in that it produces the elite units of Mordor, whereas most other factions would need to recruit their elite units from outposts instead of settlements. It also serves a grand purpose for strengthening Sauron and Mordor after you start producing these units from it. The warriors that come from this barracks are expensive, but make for powerful additions to your army.
