Compared to its counterpart, the Crossbow Fort, the Tribal Axethrowers fulfills a more supportive role, with its abilities concentrating on weakening enemies for other towers rather than dealing direct damage.
Description[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]
- As a support tower, Tribal Axethrowers work best when placed near a chokepoint.
- Totem of Spirits can be inconsistent, as it will often be placed near enemies which it has no effect on, and any enemy spellcasters affected by it can often move out of its radius. To maximize its impact it is recommended to use Barracks or Reinforcements to contain enemy spellcasters in its area of effect.
- Ranged enemies are vulnerable to the totems because they often get grouped up easily and will not move if they have a target.
- The Totem of Weakness is very effective when used with Barracks, Reinforcements, Heroes or Necromancer Towers, as they help create a chokepoint where towers can deal extra damage, and allow friendly units to stall for longer as the enemies deal reduced damage.
- Totem of Weakness is particularly useful against high-HP enemies such as Bosses and Bloodshells as they require the most firepower to kill and do a lot of damage.
