To the vanguard!

The Ranger Barracks is the level 3 Melee Tower tower in Kingdom Rush: Origins. It replaces the Knights Barracks from the previous games and is upgraded from the Warden Barracks. They regenerate 20 hit points per second when idle.

Description Edit

"Equipped with Twin Blades, Rangers lead the way! The uncanny of the elven kingdom."

The appearance of the elves when upgraded to Rangers doesn't change that much, they instead of swords are equipped with Twin Blades. Like the Wardens they are highly versatile because of their melee and ranged attacks. The description is a reference to the Motto of the 75th Ranger Regiment.


  • The Ranger Barracks are stronger than their predecessors, able to take on more powerful enemies than before. Although they lack the power and special abilities of Bladesingers or Forest Keepers, they are much cheaper and work as a useful placeholder until these towers can be bought.
  • Like the Wardens they have a ranged attack capable of hitting even flying enemies. However it can really only serve as support for other towers or as a finishing blow, as it is still quite weak.

 Additonal Stats Edit

  • Enchanted Armor gives +10% armor for a total of 60%.
  • In total with all upgrades, their EHP* is 350 points of physical damage per soldier (3 soldiers equals 1050 EHP).
  • The cost of the Defender Barracks is 510 Gold, 459 if upgraded.
  • Gold spend per EHP (for all 3 soldiers) is 0.49 (0.44 if upgraded).

Note: Effective Hit Points = how much damage a unit needs to take before dying.
