Mount And Blade Warband Siege Tower
Mount and Blade Warband Siege Tower
Mount and Blade Warband is a medieval action role-playing game developed by TaleWorlds Entertainment and released in 2010. The game features a realistic combat system, a sandbox world, and a dynamic political system. One of the most exciting aspects of the game is the ability to participate in sieges, where the player can attack or defend castles and towns using various siege weapons and tactics.
One of the most common siege weapons in the game is the siege tower, which is a large wooden structure that can be pushed towards the enemy walls by the player and their troops. The siege tower has a ramp that can be lowered once it reaches the wall, allowing the attackers to storm the battlements and fight their way to the gatehouse or the keep. The siege tower can also provide cover for the attackers from enemy arrows and projectiles, as well as a platform for archers and crossbowmen to shoot at the defenders.
However, using a siege tower is not without its drawbacks. The siege tower is very slow to move and requires a lot of time and resources to build. The player has to wait for several hours or days before they can launch a siege with a tower, depending on the size of their army and the difficulty level. The siege tower is also vulnerable to enemy fire, especially from catapults, ballistae, and fire pots. The enemy can also try to set fire to the tower or destroy its wheels, making it immobile or unusable. Furthermore, the siege tower can only be used on certain castles and towns that have suitable walls for it to reach. Some castles have moats, ditches, or cliffs that prevent the tower from getting close enough to the wall.
The siege tower is one of the most iconic and challenging siege weapons in Mount and Blade Warband. It can provide a thrilling and rewarding experience for the player who wants to conquer enemy lands or defend their own. However, it also requires careful planning, patience, and skill to use effectively. The player has to weigh the pros and cons of using a tower versus other siege options, such as ladders, battering rams, or diplomacy. The player also has to consider the strength and morale of their army, the layout and defenses of the enemy castle or town, and the weather and time of day. The siege tower is not a guarantee of victory, but it can be a powerful tool in the hands of a skilled commander.
