The Harpoon Turret is a Squire and Countess defense. It is a large crossbow with a wide range and medium-high damage. Its ability to penetrate enemies makes it a good tower for choke points and intersections.


The Harpoon Turret shoots piercing bolts which can hit up to 12 (?) enemies in a straight line.

Since harpoons have less health than other Squire towers, they should often be protected behind a physical barrier such as the Bouncer Blockade or Spike Blockade to keep monsters at a distance.

  • Upgrading a hero defense increases its damage by 10% each level, and its health, lifespan or detonation count by 20% (a level 5 defense will deal 50% more damage and have 100% more health than a defense with no upgrades).
  • On the other hand, upgrading a hero defense will mean that it acts as if the Hero has a higher Defense Area of Effect and Defense Attack Rate. A level 1 turret gets a bonus of +2 to all stats, while a level 5 turret gets +36.
  • While the hero who summoned the tower is active, its damage is increased by 33% (PC).
