Falcons are excellent in short skirmishes where their damage is maximized as well as picking off units or farms from cliffsides, where there is little room for retaliation. As a flying unit, falcons are unaffected by mines or barbed wires or other melee units and can quickly get from one place to another without having to worry about terrain.
This flying Tier 2 unit can deal rapid shots at enemies from the air for 0.5 seconds, before reloading.

Description

Falcons are excellent in short skirmishes where their damage is maximized as well as picking off units or farms from cliffsides, where there is little room for retaliation. As a flying unit, falcons are unaffected by mines or barbed wires or other melee units and can quickly get from one place to another without having to worry about terrain.

Counters

Falcons are very versatile due to the fact they are flying and can attack both air and ground units. However, they are the weakest Tier 2 unit in terms of defense, so they're not as scary as you might think.

Tier 1 Options

  • Squirrel: Due to their low hp, falcons can fall quickly to a handful of squirrels.

Tier 2 Options

  • Snake: Snakes are the only tier 2 units (not including themselves) that can even attempt to fight falcons. You may be better off using a hit and run tactic to trim the cast of falcons.

Tier 3 Options

  • Fox: Foxes out-range and one-shot falcons. (some mirco may be required)

Structural Options

  • Machine Gun Nest: MGNs and falcons have identical offensive parameters but MGNS has 40 health (vs 15).
  • Sniper Balloon: One-shots falcons. Opponent's gonna need at least 3 to take a balloon down.
