Overview

"'Hi!' jk farms can't talk"

The Farm is an economy tower which will give cash every time a wave ends. If you know how to use farm well, then you may be able to get many expensive towers or upgrades earlier than normal. Each upgrade will increase the money you receive every wave. At level 5, the Farm will give a 50% income boost for all other farms. It's best to place the Farm as far from the defense spot as possible because it cannot attack.

The farm can also generate more money every buff it gets. For example, decreased firerate.

"Farms generate income for you every round. Although they don't attack (they shouldn't), placing those will profit you in the long run."

Tactics

  • Only farm when you're confident that your defense will hold up for the next waves, as you'll be focusing money into the farms, leaving almost no money to upgrade/place new towers.
  • The best way to set up farm is start getting 15 level 2 farms( one at a time) then upgrade them to level 4, finally upgrade one of them to level 5 for maximize eco.
  • Multiple maxed farms do not stack their 50% buff. However, since the 50% buff doesn't apply to itself, multiple maxed farms can buff eachother.

Trivia

  • The farm has a Cash Generated value, in place of the total damage value as it does not deal damage.
    • Before the 3/4/22 Update, the total cash generated was still labelled as 'Total Damage'
  • The upgrade description on level 4 says "Money maybe does grow on trees.." even though level 3 is already a bunch of trees.
  • Thanks to the new change that lets Farm generate more money. According to the badge "God Crops" it is possible to apparently make 26,155$ on one single farm in one wave.
  • The Farm is the only tower that you need to exclusively need to complete 2 badges - the God Crops badge and the A Rose For The Rose Badge.
