Weapons to use Melee or ranged

Flingers are slow, lumbering Mist Monsters with a large arm that throws husks at the objective. They spawn smaller enemies in their outstretched arm to throw over fort walls to attack from the inside. While not usually dangerous on their own, they will constantly throw smaller husks onto roofs or ceilings, bypassing wall fortifications and Traps.

They are first introduced during Plankerton Storm Shield Defense 2, and only appear in siege/defense Missions thereafter.

Special Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Throw husk - Throws smaller husks from an exceptional distance in a long arc with a visible trail, bypassing established defensive walls and tunnels to potentially attack the objective from within.
  • Anti-Melee Enrage - After letting out a roar (with their orange glows shifting to red), smashes the ground for exceptional damage in a small area around themselves.

Tips and Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • It is strongly recommended to add roofing to objective defenses, to prevent Flingers from throwing husks directly into the objective.
  • Flingers throw Husks, Pitchers, Beehives, Zappers, and Dwarfs. Adding traps to rooftops will efficiently deal with them.
