The Dwarven Bombard is the Level 1 Artillery Tower. It deals area damage to ground units. 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.

It can be upgraded to a Dwarven Artillery at Level 2.

Strengths and Weaknesses

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 (note this in the Ruins of Acaroth stage). The only units the Bombard is not effective against are Marauders (their health is too high), all air units, Dark Knights, and Dark Slayers.

However, it is not recommend to use them in later stages, due to their low damage output and long reload time, instead, they should be upgraded to Dwarven Artilleries as soon as possible.
