"Set the Inferno Tower's Dark Elixir fueled flame to build up unbelievable damage to single targets, or to constantly roast multiple targets at once. Healing effects get blocked by its extreme heat!"

Level 1 Level 2 Level 3

  • Summary
    • The Inferno Tower shoots a jet of flame that burns through even the thickest armor.
    • The lava stream on the Level 10 Town Hall may indicate that you can get Inferno Towers.
    • The flame in single-target mode takes a while to heat up, making it most effective against the strongest troops.
    • Stop Heroes, P.E.K.K.As and Golems in their tracks, and shoot Healers and Dragons out of the sky with the powerful single target mode Inferno Tower!
    • The Inferno Tower can be overwhelmed by large groups of weaker units, such as the Archer when it is in single target mode.
    • In single-target mode, the Inferno Tower causes progressive damage to a single target. The longer the tower stays focused on the same target, the more damage it does.
    • In multiple-target mode, the Inferno Tower causes constant damage to up to five targets.
    • Troops targeted by the Inferno Tower (in either mode) are not able to be healed, either by Healers or by the Healing Spell.
    • Similar to the X-Bow, the Inferno Tower must be recharged periodically. However, recharging it requires Dark Elixir instead of normal Elixir.
    • Supercell released a teaser video on it: Inferno Tower Video
    • The Inferno Tower doesn't have a favorite target, nor does it deal more damage to any troop more than the others. However, in single-target mode, since its damage increases, it does deal more average damage to troops with higher hitpoints.

  • Defensive Strategy
    • The Inferno Tower in single-target mode is weak against large numbers of Tier 1 (and to a lesser extent Tier 2) troops. Make sure the Inferno Tower is within range of a Mortar or a Wizard Tower so that it is adequately defended.
    • This defense, when set in single target mode, is tailor-made to destroy the most powerful of troops, such as the Dragon, P.E.K.K.A and Golem. As such it is a perfect complement to a Wizard Tower, which is very effective against large numbers of weaker troops but struggles against those with high health pools. Positioning these two structures close by can substantially improve the survivability of both structures (and the rest of your base).
    • The tower's heating effect restricts the healing of its targets, so it is best to place them near the most important buildings like storages or the Town Hall.
    • The multiple target mode can be used to overwhelm groups of Tier 1 troops or Hog Riders easily.
    • You may place 2 of these close to each other, one of each mode. Then have Traps and Defensive Buildings around there.
  • Offensive Strategy
    • This structure (especially in single-target mode) wreaks havoc with most common offensive strategies where heavy units go in first to distract defenses and light units follow. Letting your heavy troops get in range of it spells certain doom for them, even high-level Heroes. A combination of Lightning Spells and a group of Minions may be the best way to get at the Inferno Tower if it is behind multiple Walls and defenses.
    • Four level 4+ Lightning Spells will destroy a level 1 Inferno Tower. Five level 4+ Lightning Spells will destroy a level 2 Inferno Tower. Five level 5+ Lightning Spells will destroy a level 3 Inferno Tower.
    • Small troops are stronger against the Inferno Tower in single-target mode, as every time it targets a new troop it will have to heat up again. Golems get destroyed in seconds by this strong defensive building, but if you surround it with Archers or Barbarians it will be defeated very quickly. In single-target mode it can only target one unit at a time, so attacker spacing is not an issue (unless a Wizard Tower or Mortar is nearby).
    • You can tell if an Inferno Tower is in single or multiple target mode by looking at its top. If it has one large hole, it's in single target mode; if it has three small holes, it's in multiple target mode.
    • Look at the Inferno Tower to see if it is empty or full with Dark Elixir. If it is empty there will be no canister of Dark Elixir attached to the side of the tower, and there will no longer be fire emitting from the top. Also the glowing lava pool present at the bottom will have also disappeared, giving the entire structure the look of ordinary rock or metal (see image gallery below).

  • Upgrade Differences
    • Inferno Towers do not undergo any significant visual changes.
      • When initially constructed, the Inferno Tower consists of a tall, narrow tower of rocks straddling a glowing pool of lava. At the top of the Inferno Tower is a circular focusing lens, and a rectangular-shaped Dark Elixir reservoir is mounted on one side.
      • At level 2, huge red flames are emitted from the focusing lens on the top of the tower, and the prominent sections of rock from the first level become gilded with a red overlay. The rock holding the lens becomes gold and the lens themselves become red and the fire overwhelms the ring.
      • At level 3, its structural supports become thicker and gain spikes. Also, the structure that contains the fire becomes a hollow faceted frame.

  • Trivia
    • It was added on the May 23, 2013 update as part of the 'Fiery Fortress' Update. 
    • It is currently the last defense unlocked.
    • It takes up a 2x2 space. This means Inferno Tower, along with the Hidden Tesla, occupy the smallest space in the village of any permanent defensive structure.
    • There are currently only 2 upgrades available, giving the Tower a total of 3 levels. This gives it the least amount of upgrades of any building (aside from the Builder's Hut, which has no upgrades at all).
    • It is similar to the X-Bow due to the fact that both have limited ammunition, must be periodically reloaded and have two modes.
    • Although the Inferno Tower is reloaded with Dark Elixir, it shoots out a continuous line of fire.
    • There is an achievement for destroying a certain amount of Inferno Towers, and it is called Firefighter.

    • Is there a visual difference betwixt a single or multi-target setting on the tower?
    • Yes a single target is like a donut. Multi-Target is like a ball with alot of holes in it
