The Coast Southron Warriors are the soldiers that fight for the Southrons, defending the trading peoples of the Southron Coasts. With influences from Umbar, rich soil, and a location near the sea, the Southron Coast Warriors are more advanced then their Gulfen Counterparts. They mainly guard the Coasts, rather than raid, though they will be ready to aid Sauron in his effort to defeat the Free People. Their hatred of Gondor comes from a long history of wars between the two nations.
They spawn naturally in the Southron Coasts, along with their mounted variant, as well as in Coast Southron invasions defending their homeland from any troubles the North brings them. Prior to Update 34, these warriors (then called Near Harad warriors) would spawn in Harondor, Near Harad Fertile, and the Great Desert.
The Southron warriors will usually be found wearing a full set of gold, red, and black armour. They sometimes wear a black or red turban (as of Public Beta 27) or have no head wear at all. They will also be found usually carrying a Haradric Spear, Scimitar or Dagger, or Maces or Polearms. As of Update 34, Southron Warriors can spawn with Umbaric Equipment instead of Haradric Equipment.

- Form a line? What good will that do?
- I am bestowed with the strength of a thousand men, so no army can outnumber us.
- We will see this war to an end, Person.
