One of the great strategic aspects of Civilization 6 is the ability to promote your units. This is more than just a boost for troops that survive a battle. Promotion also allows you to specialize your units as well as add some other flavorful aspects. You can learn how to upgrade your units with our Civ 6 How to Promote Units Guide.
Civ 6 How to Promote Units Guide
Promoting a unit in Civilization VI starts with gaining enough XP. While the Promote Unit button on each unit is always visible, it is only active when your unit reaches the necessary XP to unlock the promotion. Remember, you can only promote a unit on a turn when they have not taken their full movement.
When you promote a unit matters, because the action ends your turn. However, the trade-off is that you gain up to 50 Health Points back when the unit is promoted. You do not have to promote your unit right away, but waiting will cost you XP. Your unit will not continue to accrue XP as long as a promotion is available.
When you click the Promot Unit button on the unit panel, you will see all of your potential options. Each promotion offers different bonuses that you will need to choose between.
