The Dwarven Bombard is the Level 1 Artillery Tower. It deals area damage to ground units. The range is the same as the Level 2 Ranged Tower's. The tower is the same in both Kingdom Rush and Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, with only a change in appearance.


"Bombards ground enemies dealing area damage."

A two-dwarf team is all that's necessary to work this large cannon. Its rudimentary design allows it to only handle the most basic ordnances.



  • Dwarven Bombards are strong against most ground-based enemies, even those with armor, because their splash damage ignores 50% of armor. They are especially useful against hordes of Goblins, one Goblin can only take two hits from a Bombard, making them the cheapest yet effective option to counter these enemies.
  • The only units the Bombard is not effective against are Marauders (their health is too high), all air units, Dark Knights, and Dark Slayers.
  • It is not recommended to use them in later stages, due to their low damage output and long reload time, instead, they should be upgraded to Dwarven Artillery as soon as possible.
