Offensive Application

Opposing Mortars start showing up in enemy bases at the way beginning of your command, and can be a problem for early-on full Riflemen assaults. Later in the game they mostly act as a movement deterrent – a base structure that can be easily countered but require you to spend Gunboat energy to evade or approach an enemy base from a forced angle.

How to fight against Mortars:

  • Mortars reload extremely slowly. Use this fact to move your troops either into their blindspots or evade them entirely. Be careful when using Flares – we recommend you zoom in your view to the farthest level to make sure you tap on the ground just before the Mortar, and not on it.
