The Defender is a level 2 anti-air tower; it fires high speed guided missiles that are effective against aircraft and when built en masse can also do damage against surface units. It has weak armor and doesn't stand up well against enemy fire. It has more range than the Sentinel, though less than the Guardian. Its CORE counterpart is the Pulverizer.

Missile Tower “DEFENDER”
The Defender fires missiles at air or surface targets. It is the major anti-air defense.

Trivia[]

  • Even though the Defender is a level 2 tower, it requires less resources to build than level 1 towers, though this is probably due to its poor defensive capabilities.
