Each team has access to a trebuchet which can bombard any enemy or area on the battlefield. It causes massive damage to enemies and causes knockback to those who get caught in the area of effect. It does no friendly-fire damage or knockback.

3 Turn Right.png Turn Right 100.25¼ Press and hold to turn your trebuchet to the right.

It can also be used to destroy buildings and objects in your way. This can help create easier access routes to lanes from a team's base, or to provide additional routes to flank the opposing team. It is not possible to destroy the enemy's trebuchet with your own trebuchet as it is out of range, but it can be destroyed by enemy players. When this happens, supply can be used to repair it or it will be repair automatically after a time period.


These NPCs can be both allies and foes depending on your team.
