"Need a massive killer? We're the bomb! We can kill many starlings with a couple of blasts. Killing enemy crowds is our thing"
Short range but high damage, this turrets's bomb explodes in large groups of ground Units taking them down. The Cannon Blast can be used as a bait, to beat looters in large amounts, or be used as support damage, but this defensive turret is weak against a unit with high health and cannot fire at flying units, so make sure that other Defensive Buildings can protect the Cannon Blast.
It is the first turret you get and along with the the Sniper Tower. It's also the most numerous one you can get.
The Cannon Blast can be thought of as a "stationary" version of beetle tank on defense.
Range: the maximum range is 272, this means a circle with a radius of 5 squares diagonal or 7 squares lateral.
