"Stronghold 2," which claims to be the "ultimate castle sim," features a bevy of unlockable and upgradeable units. Many units are defensive in nature, while others focus on attack. The siege tower and large siege tower are expensive, yet highly effective offensive units, rendering enemy castle walls irrelevant to your advancing army. Due to poor in-game instructions, many players are left confused about how to use these devastating offence units.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Click your "Siege Camp" to bring up the list of units the camp can produce. Click "Siege Tower" or "Large Siege Tower" to purchase the unit.

  2. 2

    Left-click your newly constructed siege tower to select the unit. Right-click the ground to move the structure to the specified location.

  3. 3

    Right-click the base of your enemy's castle wall during battle to move the siege tower into position.

  4. 4

    Right-click the highest point of the wall to activate the siege tower's boarding ramp. Once the ramp is down, the siege tower is "docked" to the wall.

  5. 5

    Select your units and right-click a docked siege tower to order the units to scale the structure. Your units will automatically run down the boarding ramp and resume fighting from the wall top.

Tips and warnings

  • After docking large siege towers against enemy walls, you can send friendly archers to the tower roof to rain death on your foes. To do so, select the archers and right-click the top of the large siege tower.
