Overview

Towers are a core part of gameplay. They help defend your base, which is the aim of the game. Towers can be bought using 3 currencies, Gold, StreetCred or XP. You earn Gold and XP when winning or losing a match, while you need to complete daily missions to get StreetCred. When a player leaves a match their towers will be given to other players in the server, enabling selling and upgrading for the person who got it.

There are currently 20 towers in the game. Towers can be split into 5 types: The Ruby Tribe, Amethyst Tribe, Hybrids, the Void Class and Guardians. Most towers have 5 upgrades and a final 6th upgrade called a Master upgrade that only one of that tower can have (per person). Farm, Beacon and Reaper have only 5 upgrades. The Guardian Cassy makes it possible to have 2 Master Level towers of the same kind for each person in the match. Guardians have 15 levels, and upgrade automatically. Each one gains those levels at a different pace. You can also purchase their upgrades manually, which get progressively more expensive. There is only one void class tower in the game, the Reaper.

Trivia

  • Nekoro, Magician, Technician are the only towers that can spawn units.
  • Artillerist is similar to the Classic ROBLOX Noob[1].
  • Cassy is similar to the OC of their thumbnail / icon creator, Casey.
    • The OC was seen in the Discord Server, which the said artist, Caseyrl1, as her profile picture.
  • Beacon, Alien, Spitter and Farm are the only towers which isn't human-like.
    • The Artillerist, Ruby Queen, Fire Mage, Cassy and Theresa share human-like characteristics, which the earlier said towers doesn't.
    • Several towers also refer to animals or non-human creatures.
      • Magician, Gunner and Pyro refer to rabbits (from their rabbit ears). Fire Mage refers to a fox (from her fox ears). Ice Cat, Nekoro and Hayaka refer to cats (from their cat ears). Theresa refers to an angel. Ruby Queen and Cassy refer to demons (from their horns). Alien refers to, well, alien (the game says it straight from her description). Spitter refers to monsters (same as alien) and Delta (possibly) refers to a vampire (from his horns and the fact that he covers his face with a scarf).
  • The game's name used to be "Woman Tower Defense" as a joke, even though they have male characters.
    • Contrary to some people's beliefs, this was a joke about a meme from Tower Defense Simulator, rather a joke about how many female towers there are in Arena Tower Defense itself.
  • According to the game, towers from different tribes tend to have different purposes.
    • Towers from Ruby tribe tends to be main damagers.
    • Towers from Amethyst tribe tends to be support towers.
      • However some Amethyst tribe towers like Wizard are more as main damagers but they also provide assistance in their own ways.
    • Hybrid towers can be both main damager and supports, often the time being supports.
    • While not said in game as not being a tribe, Guardian towers are powerful towers with their unique abilities and usefulness. Usually, they're the actual guardians, leaders of something else or someone with a critical focus from at least a group of people.
      • Theresa is the guardian of heaven, Ruby Queen is the leader of the Ruby tribe, Mayla is a wanted "outlaw", Nekoro leads the voids those are in the good side, Cassy is Ruby Queen's older sister (as she is the supposed 10th queen of the family but got denied to be a queen and Ruby Queen then becomes the 11th queen), Vivy being a knight from Ruby tribe and Hayaka being a high rank person from the Nekokami clan.
        • The information of the Delta tower is very limited and his back story is completely unknown but guessing that he has his "secret" army of dark magic (or whatever the power he has) and he is the leader of it which the army is never revealed to anyone within the game, including players.
          • Take note that the information of Delta is a total guess and purely theory. Don't take this as a solid piece of info.
