The Ballista is a weapon available in era 560.
The Ballista fires a log, fashioned into an arrow that explodes on contact with a surface or enemy. Firing the Ballista causes knockback on the player who fired it.
The Ballista has a special ability called skewering. If a fired ballista log hits near the mid-section of an enemy player or enemy creature hitbox who is close to a wall, the enemy will be temporarily pinned to the wall. The time a unit spends pinned to the wall will depend on the creature - larger creatures will not be pinned long, and Buboids and Lycathirs will also not be pinned long, while smaller creatures and enemy players will remain there longer.
