"But the engines did not waste shot upon the indomitable wall.... As soon as the great catapults were set... they began to throw missiles marvellously high, so that they passed right above the battlement and fell thudding within the first circle of the City; and many of them by some secret art burst into flame as they came toppling down."
The Return of the King, The Siege of Gondor

The Troll Catapult is a beastly siege engine of Mordor made for heavy single target damage, ideal for destroying buildings. It is quite costly but produces at a quick rate. It is a powerful machine that can be used at long range effectively both against Monsters and buildings. It is also able to deal heavy damage to garrisoned units, killing them while they believe themselves safe inside the towers. They are the top notch of long range artillery and stand almost unrivaled when it comes to siege engines. Access to the Troll Catapult requires that the Great Siege Works be under the influence of Sauron.

No Upgrades.png
This siege engine has no upgrades. This means that this siege engine can not gain any sort of permanent boost from upgrades found in either its palantir or from other units/heroes. If this is not the case, fill in the section following the format of other pages.


Troll catapults can be used to destroy buildings in matter of seconds. They are heavy hitters but can't take a single hit in return and will be torn down easily by most units. They can also be used to deal massive damage to units, destroying large groups of them and burning the rest. In wise hands they can be powerful tools of destruction, but be careful not to let them burn your own army.
