The Ballista is an anti-infantry siege weapon, capable of skewing both ground and air units with its bolts and their ability to pass through multiple units. Fragile and long ranged, the Ballista is ideal to be at the back of your lines or hiding behind walls / towers. Although it deals a decent amount of damage, its projectile and attack type are both resisted by towers, making it utterly hopeless to damage buildings. Because of this, as well as Dark Dwarves having access to Hellbores - another siege weapon that can hit both ground and air targets as well as being able to deal large damage to infantry and buildings alike, Ballistae are best left at home when base razing, where they can offer great offensive power against hordes of units wishing to assail your own base.
