The Ballista Tower is a powerful tower in Age of Mythology. It is an upgrade of the Guard Tower and is only available to the Egyptians, the most defensive of the five Age of Mythology cultures. It can deal substantially more damage to enemies than a Guard Tower, providing excellent defense for Egyptian towns.
- Flying units: ×3.0
- Ships: ×6.0
- Despite its name, the Ballista Tower still fires normal arrows.
- Originally, the Ballista Tower was intended to be available to the Atlanteans according to an unused model. Unfortunately, this model is only a copy of the Mythic Age Atlantean Guard Tower model.
- Interestingly, the Atlanteans of Kronos in War of the Titans get access to Ballista Towers, despite Atlanteans not normally getting access to them anymore.
