Outposts are guarded posts in Hyrule Warriors.
Overview and Features
Outposts are small stations that are found scattered around battlefields. They are similar to Keeps in that Allied Forces, Enemy Forces, and Rogue Forces fight over them for possession, and that they are used to call upon reinforcements and to counter advancing units. Unlike the structured Keeps that spawn dozens of troops at a time, Outposts are only watched by a couple troops and an Outpost Captain who serves as an Outpost's main line of defense. If an Outpost Captain is defeated by another Force, their Outpost will be claimed. Outposts are commonly found in corner sections of the battlefield. Often a Keep may have one or two Outposts outside to serve as another measure of defense.
