Gold please.

–Miner, Stick Empires

The Miner is a unit that devotes its technologies to many factions, but after the collapse of virtually every rebel empire, made the Order Empire their primary home. Similar to the Swordwrath, the Miner is found in every tutorial stage in the Stick War series, due to their ability to produce valuable resources.


Stick War

Before the war began, Inamorta shared these miners amongst themselves and used them to produce weapons of harm and chaos. It was only the Order Empire that had Miners as free people, and here their population was in full-force.

Miners have participated in every single battle that the Order Empire has taken part in, and without them, no nation would have been triumphant.

Stick War II: Order Empire

Returning for the sequel, miners were again a technology used by all of the countries in southern Inamorta. However, Medusa captured their fair share of Orderian miners and enslaved them to work under her will.

Like the original game, the Miner participates in every battle that the Order takes part in.


The miner is the only unit capable of mining gold for the army. Their bags can be upgraded to hold more gold and their pickaxes can be upgraded so they can mine faster. Miners are very weak and have little in the way of defending themselves. However they are capable of defense in Stick War: Order Empire.


Their major weakness is that they deal very little damage. They can also only mine at rock formations that are littered around the battlefield. Also, a miner that has just come out of a fort is prey for a Swordwrath, or other units with high damage.

    The club-wielding Miner found in the game files.

    In the files for the original Stick War, the sprites tagged 135, 165, 199, and 200 display a Miner holding the Swordwrath's club instead of the traditional pick. Why or when this change was made is unknown, but this feature was likely scrapped before Stick War's release.
