So BARRIER CANNONS ARE TERRIBLE...NO BENEFIT

Comments

  • I have never used it, but my brother has and says they are terrible too. Thanks for the advice :-)
  • have u ever tried using them in a 90 degree angle up next to the ant hole so that they cant get through without hitting it? chew on that and then tell me what u think;-)
  • yeah, i tried it. they're reasonable early on when it kills the ants quickly and it encourages them to only come out the one area, but once it stops killing them quickly, it's not worth it. they just walk through and ignore it
  • i tried that it didnt really work for me:-(
  • I've explained it before in a much larger post with the problems and benefits of all the guns, but here it is for barriers:

    1. they are expensive to use, so you don't get them really before about level 50.
    2. by the time you can afford to plant enough to actually blockade the ants, the ants have too many hit points for the barriers to have any effect. (like as in less than 1% of the ant's health with the ant wandering back and forth through it).
    3. for the most part, barriers only have a linear aoe, and can't track ants. (wasteing money to change direction is an option, but it's a stupid one).


    If they were cheap, then I could see them being used early on while setting up a long range cannon defence. (very difficult to get 9 long range cannons going in the middle of the screen so they can reach pretty much from the hole to the cake, but very worth it if you can pull it off. -still not quite as effective as snipers or quicks, but if I could find a cheap way to set it up, it may beat out both).

  • Barriere cannons rock!! if only you know how to used them.. 1st you need to think for its combo, then where to place it. it may sounds hard that try it for your self:-D
  • doubles n quicks, mind explaining why they rock? from my testing of them, the ants seems to love simply running through the barriers and takeing 120 ish damage. once past say level 60, that's a negligable amount. by level 80, the ants completly ignore barriers and you jsut wasted alot of money you could have spent on a sniper and ice upgrade....
