The Dwarven Bombard (Bombard on the iPhone version) is the Level 1 Artillery Tower. It deals area damage to ground units. The range is the same as the Level 2 Ranged Tower's. The tower is the same in both Kingdom Rush and Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, with only a change in appearance.

Description

"Bombards ground enemies dealing area damage."

A two-dwarf team is all that's necessary to work this large cannon. Its rudimentary design allows it to only handle the most basic ordnances.

Range

Strategy

  • Dwarven Bombards are strong against most ground-based enemies, even those with armor, because their splash damage ignores 50% of armor. They are especially useful against hordes of Goblins: one Goblin can only take two hits from a Bombard, making them the cheapest yet effective option to counter these enemies.
  • The Bombard is not effective against air units and very durable and/or heavily armored enemies such as Marauders, Dark Knights and Dark Slayers.
  • It is not recommended to use them in later stages, due to their low damage output and long reload time, instead, they should be upgraded to Dwarven Artillery as soon as possible.
  • Using artillery in combination with some troops (barracks, reinforcements, hero or a combination of the former) will increase their efficiency. Holding a group of enemies at one place makes easier for the Artillery to hit multiple enemies.
