Wako Pirates spawn in fleets off the coast of the player's faction. Only two ships are available to the Wako without modding: Wako Medium Bunes, a weaker version of Medium Bune, and Wako Trade Ships, which are functionally identical to trade ships. Their fleet sizes usually vary from 3-5 ships, though multiple Wako fleets can eventually merge to pose a larger threat.
Despite being a primarily naval-battle oriented faction, game files indicate that the Wako field a couple land units unique to their faction, including Katana Wako and Bow Wako. As the Wako cannot capture regions, it never fields these units without modding.
- The Wako Pirates are based on the Wokou pirates who raided the coastlines of China, Japan and Korea.
