Ballista towers fire a huge spear-like projectile that does overwhelming damage to siege weapons. Although it takes a while to reload and cannot shoot units next to it, the ballista tower deals out massive damage with each shot.

General Assessment

Weaknesses

  • Cannot attack units in close proximity. Try grouping with Crossbow Towers.
  • Takes time to reload

Tactics

Placing ballista towers near areas of wall that are vulnerable to siege weapons is a great way to utilize their power.
