    I suppose if you put it in a spot where it's likely to get taken out by ranged troops.

    It's actually one of the better defences on my war base. As with everything else, placement is key.

    It's that way in most of the lists of "war weights" based on numbers extracted from the droid API, such as: http://www.clashkings2.com/war-weight-calculator.html
    Whatever those numbers are, they aren't war weights - they fail completely for strange bases.

    Analysing the gold weights visible in game, the bomb tower does seem to have a bizarrely high weight, but a bit less than an xbow.

    I'm a 10.5 and I didn't build either of mine... I don't miss them.
    I'm an engineer with an actual engineering degree, lol.

    If you visit http://coc.guide and see the gold weights for xbows, mortars, bomb towers etc, you'd realize the comparison.

    Bomb towers primary function is to counter the skellie spell from killing your heroes . Put one or bothe around the aq and makes dropping skellie on her with a hig or loon attack less likely. Then they need a traditional ks.

    Yes, those are the numbers I was referring to. Those are not war weights. They are not even close. It has, for example, 1 mortar counting nearly as much as 3 xbows, and 3 mortars more than an eagle artillery. Lol. If you test them against bases with strange builds that site gives totally the wrong answers.

    No-one has published a list of war weights that even gets close to being right. #6M (and others) have lists that work but haven't published it. They do sometimes open up their calculator, but only rarely.

    No...

    Not yet... wait till after the upgrade... then access again. Just enjoy the lower war weight for now and do not be in a hurry to max out everything... there is no end game and the only thing waiting at the upper leagues are clouds.

    So sit back and enjoy a near maxed TH10.👍👍

    Op, no, don't upgrade it. All upgrades are useless. Save your time/resources.
