Troops - Fire Catapult

Fire CatapultPrerequisites for research: Workshop level 10, Academy level 15
Prerequisites for training: Workshop

The Catapult is an excellent long-range weapon; it is used to destroy the fields and buildings of enemy villages. However, without escorting troops it is almost defenceless so don't forget to send some of your troops with it.

Having a high level rally point makes your catapults more accurate and gives you the option to target additional enemy buildings. With a level 10 rally point each building except for the cranny, stonemason's lodge and trapper can be targeted.
HINT: Catapults CAN hit crannies, trappers or stonemason's lodges when they target randomly.

With a level 20 rally point two buildings can be targeted at the same time. You just need to attack with at least 20 catapults to be able to choose two targets.
