Artillery new
"Your Gunboat fires a high-explosive cannon shell that damages enemy buildings. Be careful not to hit your own troops!"

Summary

  • Artillery is the first weapon of your Gunboat. It is unlocked right at the start of your game.
  • Artillery deals splash damage.
  • Artillery can harm nearby troops.
  • Artillery can be used to trigger Mines, Boom Mines, and Shock Mines.
  • Each shot costs 2 more Energy than the previous, with a starting cost of 3 Energy.

Offensive Strategy

  • Use Artillery to destroy key Defensive Buildings so that your troops do not come under fire from them at all.
  • Artillery can also trigger Mines, Boom Mines, and Shock Mines, so Artillery can be used to clear any mines that are in your way.
  • Artillery shells deal splash damage, so if two or more buildings are adjacent to each other, an Artillery shell can deal its full damage to all of them if directed at the center of the building cluster.

Defensive Strategy

  • Do not place buildings adjacent to each other, not even adjacent at a corner, as they can all be damaged or destroyed at the same time. 
  • Upgrade defenses that are common Artillery targets to increase their health. If a defense has a lot of health, an attacker will have to use more energy to destroy it. Building Health Statues can also be used for this reason.

Upgrade Differences

  • There are no visual differences between upgrades. However, damage increases by 11% with each level.
