Machine Gun Level 8

“Short-ranged tower that excels at eliminating large hordes of units.”

Levels Edit

General Information Edit

  • The Machine Gun tower is a tower that shoots multiple guns and is effective at destroying groups of units, especially infantry.
  • The Machine Gun starts out as the Redoubt at Levels 1 & 2 and becomes the Machine Gun at Level 3 and up.
  • Heavy Cavalry can destroy the Machine Gun effectively as the Machine Gun struggles against cavalry.
  • As of update v2.0.x, Machine Guns can attack airplanes.

Visuals Edit

  • In the level 4 Machine Gun tower the man in the tower is using a U.S-made Browning 30 cal. Machine gun (or the M1917 Browning Machine gun as it is normally called)

Defensive strategies Edit

  • The best way to destroy troops is to put it next to an Anti-Tank Gun, much like the Mortar, so the infantry will be destroyed and the Heavy Cavalry will too. The Anti-Tank Gun will take out the cavalry, while the Machine Gun takes out the infantry that the Anti-Tank Gun struggles against.
