"The pinnacle of mechanical siege craft, the trebuchet used a counterweight to propel rocks at defensive fortifications."


Summary

  • Trebuchets have a damage bonus against walls. They have a long range but are very slow moving and need to be protected by other units.
  • Trebuchets are long-ranged siege units, unlocked from the Level 4 Siege Workshop.
  • Bonus damage against walls.
  • Good against towers.
  • Excellent range.
  • Very slow moving.
  • Will always need protecting.
  • Takes 5 Camp space.
  • Easily destroyed by Engineer Trap and Grenadier.
  • The Engineer Trap can do a lot of damage to Trebuchets especially because of the Trebuchet's movement speed.
  • Trebuchets outrange the Flame Tower and the Crossbow Tower but the Ballista Tower and the Catapult Emplacement are a good defense due to their range.
  • Very small Area-of-Effect radius (less than half a tile).

Offensive Strategy

  • Deploy Trebuchets to make holes in enemy walls and to destroy towers. They are best used with a distraction unit such as infantry to draw fire away from the Trebuchet.
  • Keep away from Raiders of Muscovy, as they will ignite and easily destroy trebuchets.

Defensive Strategy

  • Trebuchets CAN NOT be used in defense.
