  • Summary
    • Firecrackers are the Builder Base version of Air Defense. Like the Air Defense, they attack flying units; however, they are slightly less powerful while also being slightly smaller covering a 2x2 space.
    • Firecrackers can only target and shoot one air troop at a time. However, it attacks 3 times every time it fires.
    • They cannot harm ground-based units, or interfere with them in any way other than potentially distracting them from attacking a more valuable target (e.g. the Builder Hall).
    • The Firecrackers is unlocked at Builder Hall Level 3.

  • Strategy
    • Firecrackers have low hitpoints, so protect it well as it can get taken out easily.
    • Its moderate damage but high range makes it good to pair with Air Bombs. The Air Bombs do high, area damage in a small range while the firecrackers snipe away at long range.
    • At Builder Hall level 3, Firecrackers are an essential defense against Beta Minions as the Archer Tower and Hidden Tesla can both be distracted by ground units.

  • Upgrade Differences
    • The Firecrackers undergo through significant changes through levels 2, 5 and 8.
    • At level 1, the Firecrackers appears to be a wooden box with ropes with fireworks pointing out.
    • At level 2, the box is reinforced with steel on all of the edges.
    • At level 3, the box is moved on top of a base composed of five wooden planks resting on four stone blocks.
    • At level 4, the four stone blocks in the corners are replaced by a solid stone base reinforced with steel.
    • At level 5, the box and the planks are replaced by a square "fence" of wooden planks embedded into the base.
    • At level 6, additional steel reinforcements appear on the corner edges as well as the top of the wooden planks.
    • At level 7, it develops a small stone platform on the bottom which wraps around the box.
    • At level 8, gold plating is added to all four corners and the fireworks develop a black and yellow striped pattern.
