Tower Defense

Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Age of Z
Last Updated:

I'm a huge fan of Tower Defense games, and it was quite a surprise to see a real Tower Defense game within Age of Z. Getting through the Tower Defense levels is essential to complete the quest storyline and get the associated bonus with that, as well as the free rewards and bonuses you get from completing each level. Check out our Tower Defense tips below to help you out if you are having trouble getting 3 stars in the early levels.

You really want to be looking to complete each Tower Defense level with 3 stars, while we could offer help for each individual level, it's best that we talk you through the basics of how to set up a good Tower Defense strategy on Age of Z.

You get to the Tower Defense part of Age of Z by clicking the Tower Defense Post from there you can play Classic or Infinite Zombies.

Tower Defense Tips

The initial Tower Defense levels are quite easy, and you start off with being able to use 4 different weapons, each one does something slightly different.

Machine Gun Tower

This is a basic tower, but really good in the early levels, it shoots at a single unit but at a relatively high damage

Rocket Turret

This is a great tower for hitting multiple enemies at the same time, but it is slower than the Machine Gun Tower and deals less damage.

Laser Tower

The Laser Tower is incredibly strong but will only hit one enemy at a time, it's attack starts slow and relatively weak, but the longer it attacks a single opponent the stronger the more damage per second it deals, so it is really good against the bosses and stronger enemies. The problem is it may not always target those enemies when they are within a large group.

EMP Tower

The EMP Tower deals very little damage, what it does is that it will slow down a group of enemies therefore allowing your other towers to target them group for a longer period. These are useful when placed correctly, but you certainly wouldn't want too many of these as you definitely need a lot of fire power to get through each level.

Zombie Path

Pay attention to the path of the Zombies, you'll need to post your turrets according to the route that your zombies take. Focusing your strongest towers at the section that most zombies will cross.

Upgrade Towers

Remember to upgrade your Towers, each tower will be upgradable to a different level according to your progress in the game.

Battle Power Bonus

As well as upgrading your towers while playing the Tower Defense rounds, you can also get global bonuses for each tower type which will affect all the towers of that type from the moment they are placed.

Increase Building Power to Increase Gun Tower Damage

Increase Officer Power to Increase Rocket Turret Damage

Increase Technology Power to Increase EMP Tower Damage

Increase Equipment Power to Increase Laser Tower Damage

Some rounds you may need to try again to work out which tower combination is best according to the waves of enemies that spawn from the towers. Take note of which enemies may be getting through and adjust accordingly.

If you are having problems with lots of very fast enemies then probably you need more machine guns and rocket turrets, maybe an EMP tower to slow down the enemies would be helpful too.
