Pedia special Call Reinforcements

In-game illustration.

Call Reinforcements is the first of the major spells in Kingdom Rush, Kingdom Rush: Frontiers and Kingdom Rush: Origins. When used, it spawns two troopers anywhere on the road. Reinforcements act the same as troops summoned by any kind of Barracks, buying time by engaging non-flying enemies. Survivors retreat after almost 2.0x spell recharge time (used to prevent players from assembling mobs in strategic choke points). It has a quick recharge rate, so there is little sense keeping the spell charged: the more reinforcements on the battlefield, the more enemies are distracted. Reinforcements are useful as a replacement (albeit temporary) for barracks, sealing chokes, or holding back enemies straying too close to the exit. With their ranged attack upgraded, they can take on small number of flying enemies somewhat effectively.

Stats

In Kingdom Rush, initially, the spell summons two basic Farmers, but with upgrades they can become extremely powerful. Reinforcements are also affected by the Spiked Armor upgrade for the Barracks (soldiers return part of their damage taken in melee). Sprites are picked randomly from the pool of different four for each type available. Malik Hammerfury is the hero corresponding to the Reinforcements upgrade path.

In Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, Reinforcements have similar stats as in the original game, however wear different outfits and wield different weapons. Their ranged attack, Recurved Bow, is comparably weaker, yet faster than Throwing Spears, the ranged attack of Reinforcements in Kingdom Rush. Throwing Spear damage ranged damage is 24-40, four times the melee damage of Legionnaires. Recurved Bow ranged damage is 12-20, two times the melee damage of Sworn Blades.

Level HP Damage Armor
0 30 1-2 None
1 50 1-3 None
2 70 2-4 Low
3 90 3-6 Low
4 110 6-10 Low

In Kingdom Rush: Origins, Reinforcements have improved HP, armor and damage compare to those of the previous two games. They also gain their ranged attack, the Elven Stars, earlier, at tier 2 star upgrade on the Reinforcements upgrade tree. However, although the quality of reinforcement increases, the recharge period of the spell is increased to 15 seconds instead of 10 seconds, until tier 4 upgrade, "Rapid Response", is reached. The ranged attack damage is roughly twice the melee attack damage.

Level HP Melee Damage Ranged Damage Armour Recharge
0 40 1-3 None None 15 seconds
1 60 3-5 None Low 15 seconds
2 60 3-5 7-10 Low 15 seconds
3 100 5-10 12-20 Medium 15 seconds
4 100 5-10 12-20 Medium 10 seconds
5 150 10-15 22-28 Medium 10 seconds
