    Thumbs Up Q&A: Wall Breaker AI and how it works

    A Wall Breaker’s ultimate goal in life is to liberate buildings that are trapped (fully or partially) by walls

    How does the Wall Breaker choose its target? Steps 1, 2, 3
    1. It will look for the nearest building/turret that is trapped (fully or partially) by walls
    2. It will choose the shortest path towards that building and blow up walls that are in its way
    3. After the wall is blown up, it will choose the next building that is still trapped by walls, run straight towards it, and blow up walls that are in its way

    So Wall Breakers don’t target walls anymore?!?!!1!!!!?
    No. Instead of targeting walls, they aim for the main prize, a building that is trapped by walls. The wall just happens to be in its way, and has to be blown up.
    That building is the reason why you need that wall taken down, right?

    Do Wall Breakers attack buildings?
    No. They aim for the building and blow up the wall that is in their path.

    Do Wall Breakers favorite junctions?
    No. The Wall Breaker will run in a straight line towards the nearest building. When it encounters a wall, it blows it up.

    Can I fool Wall Breakers by using spikes or short decoy wall sections?
    No. They won't be fooled by those.

    Does it consider how many layers of walls are in the way it the shortest path calculation?

    It seems more like a nerf than a buff. The old wallbreaker works better, just takes a bit of aiming and accuracy.

    does a circle with 1 gate works? does the wallbreakers walk into the gate?

    Define "trapped"

    Does the building have to be completely encircled by walls to be considered "trapped" or just mostly encircled? Or just a row of walls in between the WB and the building?

    If you make them target buildings now, rename it to building breaker, it would make more sense
