The Archer Tower is a Level 1 Ranged Tower. It shoots arrows into enemies, dealing physical damage. The tower is the same in both Kingdom Rush and Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, with only a change in appearance.

Description

Archers ready to strike at your enemies from a distance.

These trainee archers fire a slow but constant stream of arrows into enemy forces. They deal low damage, but their fire rate is still relatively high, and they can attack both air and ground units.

Archers can be upgraded to Marksmen Tower at Level 2.

Range

Strategy

Strengths

  • Due to their low damage, non-upgraded archers are only effective against unarmored foes with low health, like Goblins, Shamans or Giant Spiders.

Weaknesses

  • Level 1 archers are ineffective against pretty much everything else. In later stages, you should upgrade them as soon as you build them, usually to at least level 2 or 3. As you can gain a great amount of gold in harder stages, it is possible and recommended to upgrade one Archer Tower straight to level 4, where they play a significantly more effective supporting role.

Additional Stats

  • Damage Per Second - 4.4 to 8.6 (average 6.5)
  • Cost Efficiency - 10.7 gold per point of damage
  • The Precision Upgrade increases the DPS by 10%
