For honor and glory!


The Militia Barracks is a Level 1 Melee Tower. It spawns three militia which block and attack enemies. The tower is the same in both Kingdom Rush and Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, with only a change in appearance. They regenerate 5 HP per second when not in combat.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Trains militia, tough soldiers that block and damage your enemies.

Militia are the most basic soldier available, merely civilians with very little training, armor, and weapons. However, with additional tower support, they can hold their own against even a much larger army. They can fall pretty quickly to Orcs, so it appears that they aren't as tough as the tower description says.

Range[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Try to place barracks near choke point or places where many towers can hit the enemies stalled by your soldiers. Due to the low cost of a barracks, it can sometimes pay off to build a lot of these towers in the back to stop an enemy breakthrough in an emergency.
  • It can be effective to let your militia evade some tougher enemies in favor of blocking less powerful ones. Dead soldiers provide no benefit to their supporting towers. Bandits are notorious for making short work of your level 1 soldiers, so do not use militias to block them.
  • By putting the rally points of two barracks at the same place, the two teams of soldiers will engage an individual powerful enemy as a group, inflicting more damage and taking less damage. Do not use this tactic against enemies with area attack capability (Yetis, Magma Elementals, ...) since those can damage all soldiers at once, able to kill them quickly.
  • The damage of the militia is the lowest of any tower; support is vital to winning the game!
  • The barracks should be upgraded soon after any upgrading any supporting towers, as soldier survivability will otherwise not keep up with the quality of the enemies in later waves.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • In terms of defensive capabilities, militia can only deal with the most early waves consisting of Goblins, Orcs or Wulves. The barracks soldiers might be able to take out a goblin or two by themselves, but it is best to rely on other towers for the offence.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Almost every enemy higher ranked than Orcs will make short work of your militia. Some strong ones are even capable of taking out all 3 soldiers in one hit from afar. Also, ranged enemies and flying monsters simply pierce through or fly over your blockade.
