Hail to the king, baby!


The Dwarven Howitzer is a Level 3 Artillery Tower, and is the upgraded version of the Dwarven Artillery. The tower is the same in both Kingdom Rush and Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, with only a change in appearance.

Description[edit | edit source]

"They build them bigger and better, don't they? Your enemies don't stand a chance!"

Only true ordinance experts are allowed to handle the specialised explosives used in the Howitzer. With streamlined bombs, a bigger blast radius, and longer range, what's not to love and fear about this baby?

Range[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The dwarwen howitzer deals high damage with each hit, but fires slowly and can miss fast targets. Support from barracks and/or reinforcements is therefore recommended.
    • With its heavy firepower and splash damage, putting a Howitzer right next to a chokepoint with a Barracks or two to keep foes in place is very efficient at extinguishing hordes of lesser foes.
  • As with most artillery, the dwarwen howitzer cannot target flying enemies directly. However, it can still damage them if there are ground foes below, and will often deal heavy damage. Of course, a good Archer or Mage is needed to deal with flying foes.
