Placing and removing[ | ]

Catapults over the base

Projectile trajectory of catapults placed on stone bridges over the base, where they can shoot on monsters, without being targeted by them. The arrow towers place below, behind iron doors, are used to attract and kill gargoyles, preventing them from going for the catapults.

The tower can be placed on top of any supporting surface. Foreground blocks placed right on top of it may disturb the tower's shots.

If the tower is deconstructed by dwarfs, all components of the tower can be recovered, allowing it to be rebuilt in time. When the tower is destroyed by enemies however, all the components will be lost.
