This defensive structure is less powerful than the Laser Defense Tower. However, it’s lower cost means it is easier to spam up in large quantities with less of a drain on the economy.

Due to its low damage and low cost, the Single Laser Defense Tower is great for defending outlying metal expansion.


Added during build 55493, this building was not announced, leading to speculation that it was added by mistake. It didn’t even have an icon in the build tab.

  • Damage: 40 -> 45
