Historical Description[edit | edit source]

Hannibal Barca of Carthage, the modern-day North African country Tunisia, was a general during the second and third centuries BCE and is revered as one of the greatest military minds in history. He defeated Rome in many battles during the Second Punic War. His tactics included utilizing cavalry, infantry, and war elephants in unison to suffocate his opponents during battle. One such military maneuver he applied was the double envelopment, which he used against Rome during the Battle of Cannae. This strategy entailed having cavalry and infantry attack from the sides and form a crescent shape that could neutralize enemies that were attacking in a straight line.

Hannibal is also famous for leading a massive army across the Alps in the throes of winter while battling toward Italy and Rome. He was eventually defeated by Scipio Africanus at the Battle of Zama, thus ending the Second Punic War. After being defeated, he became a politician and enacted changes to the law, such as shortening lifetime military judge appointments to only two years. He would eventually go into exile and take his own life in order to prevent his capture by the Roman Empire. Hannibal is remembered as striking such fear into the hearts of the Romans that whenever a disaster struck they would exclaim Hannibal is at the gates!’ in terror.

Attacking Strategies[edit | edit source]

Hannibal at level 21+ in a tank

  • Hannibal can tank up defensive damage and deal damage to enemy defenses/Troops.
  • If you are attacking without Tanks with your Troops, Hannibal can take up some of the damage, and is best used to take out Mortar fire. Beware not to rally your troops with Hannibal to a Mortar that can still hit your troops, since Hannibal will be the only one left alive.


  • When Hannibal is deployed on the battlefield, 2 elephants spawn alongside him, this effect also works on defense when Hannibal is deployed from a Fort
