"Archers ready!"
The Marksmen Tower is a Level 2 Ranged Tower. It is upgraded from the basic Archer Tower. The tower is the same in both Kingdom Rush and Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, with only a change in appearance.

Description

Marksmen shoot broadhead arrows, dealing more damage. Their longbows have longer attack range.

Marksmen are armed with stronger bows and better arrows. Upgraded, they gain a longer range and deal almost twice the damage. All archer towers can attack both air and ground units.

Marksmen can be upgraded to Sharpshooter Towers (Level 3) in Stage 4.

Range

Strategy

  • Marksmen are great at taking out small hordes of unarmored enemies with moderate to low health, such as Bandits or Giant Spiders.
  • With their cheap cost, these towers can be placed liberally across the map.
  • Use these towers to near exits to catch enemies that have leaked through your main defenses.
  • Use Reinforcements to support the tower, stalling enemies so they can take the full brunt of the towers damage.
  • Because their damage is relatively low, especially for enemies in later levels, it is recommended to upgrade them to sharpshooters as quickly as possible.
