One of the deadliest towers in Clash of Clans is lethal Mortar that can them very efficiently wipe out to the entire hordes of barbarians. It is the first Tower that can deal splash damage and will be first line of defense at the early stages of the game. You can obtain needed amount of resources via clash of clans cheats app and see for your self how usefull Mortar is! It has so many advantages like ability to hit several units at the same time and to deal splash damage. It is crucial defensive structure in Clash of Clans, but it is essential to learn where, how and when place your Tower.
Mortar’s range is 11 yards and it deals 1.5 yards of splash damage upon impact. Mortar has ground units as preferred targets and it will attack once every 5 seconds. You may think that Mortar deals low damage, but in fact it deals more damage than any other Tower in the game. The huge amount of splash damage can take down entire army of Barbarians or Archers. However, you will not get access to many Mortars, unlocking three at Town Hall 7 and that would be a maximum level of Mortars that you can place on a map.Using Mortars successfully requires detailed strategy and right understanding of defense mechanics.
There are certain things that you must take in consideration Mortar cannot hit air units and high health units supported by a Healer can easily survive Mortar’s attacks and destroy it. The best possible strategy is to place Mortar next to other Towers, to create synergy. Mortar cannot attack air units and it is especially weak against flying units like Dragons, so the best possible setup is to pair Mortar with Air Defense Tower to gain maximum synergy.They are weak against the Lightning Spell and two Lightning Spells will take out a Mortar within a second. Another weak spot is minimum range of Mortar, they cannot hit targets that are 3 yards or closer to Tower. That works for Giants and Barbarians cannot be hit once when came very close to the Mortar.
The most important is to decide where to place a Mortar. Place your Mortar towards the center of the base, to neutralize minimum range defect. Place them relatively close, within Air Defense range, or within a range of another Mortar. Upgrading your Mortar towers is extremely important and always upgrade them to highest possible level before upgrade Town Hall to next level.
