"Battering Ram (Level 1-2); Capped Ram (Level 3-4) & Siege Ram (Level 5-6): The earliest siege weapons were tree trunks held or suspended to be bashed against defensive gates."


  • Rams have a damage bonus against walls and gates. They are difficult to destroy but are vulnerable to ballistae and trebuchet emplacements.
  • Rams are basic siege units, unlocked from the Level 1 Siege Workshop.
  • Damage bonus against gates.
  • Very high health points.
  • Quite slow.
  • Attack valuable only against walls and gates.
  • Easily picked by Archer towers.

Offensive Strategy

  • Can be used to reveal engineer traps at a cost of two units without risking precious trebs.
  • Takes down a level 10 gate in merely 4 shots.(less than 3 seconds)
  • Can be used as a tanking units as it can absorb nearly 5 shots from a level 5 Canon tower or 4 shots from a level 3 treb emplacement.
  • Best used when tanking against catapult emplacements, it will take them forever to destroy one siege ram single handedly.

Defensive Strategy

  • Rams CAN NOT be used in defense.


  • Increased movement speed by 25%. Increased Ram’s bonus damage against Gates by 100%. Increased HP by 20%. Reduced the range that rams will seek out gates, allowing them to be more reasonable in target selection. (Patch 1.11)
