Info

The Laser Defense Tower is a common defense tower due to its high damage and versatility. Their high damage and high health make them powerful defensive structures capable of destroying large amounts of attacking units.

History

In the 54357/54382 update, the Laser Defense Tower and Floating Laser were consolidated into the same blueprint. The Laser Defense also had a cost increase from 600 to 1,000, increased damage from 75 to 125, and had range increased from 100 to 120, so they now out range Ants and equal the range of Levelers.

In the Build 59549, the cost was decreased from 1,000 metal to 600 metal.

In the Planetary Annihilation Build 61250, several changes were made.

  • Metal Cost: 600 -> 900
  • Weapon Velocity: 250 -> 500 m/s
  • Splash Damage: 0 -> 80
  • Splash Radius: 0 -> 2 m
  • Pitch Range: 40 -> 90 deg
  • Pitch Rate: 60 -> 180 deg/s

On March 11th’s Playtest, a new model was previewed.
