Heroes of the Storm Wiki

Catapults are a type of ranged minion in Heroes of the Storm that fixate on structures. A catapult spawns in a lane when all enemy forts in said lane have been destroyed. Catapults move with infantry minions, and outrange most ranged structures.


Catapults regularly appear as controllable units in the RTS Warcraft games.
