"What happens when a Tesla goes Mega? Its powerful jolts deal heavy damage to even the toughest units!"
The Mega Tesla is a defensive building in the Builder Base that unlocks at Builder Hall level 8.
It is a defense that can damage both air and ground troops.
The Mega Tesla attacks with chain lightning; the electricity it fires damages a first target within the range of the Tesla, and then, if possible, the bolt will arc towards a second target up to 3 tiles away from the first target and damage it as well.
The Mega Tesla deals high damage, but has a low fire rate. It is good to protect it using splash-damaging defenses and traps, such as the Roaster, Crusher, and Mega Mines, to prevent enemies from distracting it with lower-hitpoint troops.
The Mega Tesla's Chain Lightning can chain onto a Sneaky Archer under her cloak and kill her, provided that it has another nearby target to attack first.
Try to swarm your opponent's base with Barbarians after breaking into the base so your other troops, like the Battle Machine, can stay safe.
Drop Ships can tank several shots from the Mega Tesla and drop skeletons to distract it.
The Mega Tesla undergoes significant visual changes at levels 6, 7 and 8.
When initially constructed, it is composed of a pyramid-type building with a golden tip, and multiple wooden supports.
At level 2, the Mega Tesla gains a stone base and smaller beams in between the supports.
At level 3, all ropes disappear and are replaced with wooden beams.
At level 4, the electricity storages turn blue, and a diagonal beam replaces the other ones on the right side and gains a stone base.
At level 5, a metal ring is put on top of the original stone supports and the stone supports change into stairs.
At level 6, there are metal crosses replacing the wooden beams.
At level 7, the Mega Tesla gains blue supports at the bottom of the golden tip.
At level 8, the blue supports turn golden, and the golden tip is encased by a glowing Tesla coil.
The Tesla coil on top of the Mega Tesla at level 8 resembles the Tesla coil on the Sparky from Clash Royale, another game created by Supercell.
