Sappers are a type of minion found at the mercenary camps in the Towers of Doom battleground. They charge structures and explode, doing large amounts of damage. If a Sapper reaches the end of a lane, it will charge the enemy core for 1 point of damage.
It takes 120 seconds for their camp to respawn.
- Sapper Defenders fire their attacks at target areas, instead of directly at Heroes. Sapper Explosion damage scales over time.
- Laning Sappers have 100 Armor vs Structures while charging and Towers will ignore charging Sappers.
