Volcano Tower is quite a special tower since its slugs do both magic and physical damage at the same time. It also has the highest attack speed in the game. Volcano Tower can be obtained by logging in to your Facebook account. Once acquired through your first log in to Facebook, it becomes a possible reward in the Serpentine Arena.
Abilities and UpgradesEdit
Both of Volcano Tower's abilities are upgradeable from Level 1 onward. Bovine Beef increases the damage done to Minotaur units and Pyroclastic Surge improves damage to all enemy types.

The Volcano Tower is a well rounded Tower Card that is given to the player for free after joining Facebook. This Tower makes Minotaur Land much easier due to its upgrade (Bovine Beef) that deals extra damage to units from the Minotaur Faction. The Volcano Tower has also proven itself to have outstanding crowd control abilities, thanks to its high attack speed and area of effect (AoE) attack.
As the game progresses, however, the Volcano Tower becomes less effective. This is most notable in Undead Land and Avian Land. Still, there are some levels where it's the game-changing card; so make sure not to rule it out. Because the Volcano Tower does low damage, it is best used to take away some life points from an entire wave or to wipe out hordes of low health enemies (i.e. Rats). Consequently, it should be integrated with other AoE Towers (i.e. Pirate Tower, Poison Tower, etc.) rather than being depended on as the only source of AoE damage.
Another widespread strategy is to put two, or even three Volcano Towers close together. This way, if the path has an intersection, or funnels enemies to a single path, the Volcano Towers can be your main damage source. It is also advised to always pair the Volcano Tower with the Slowdown Tower, as they complement each other well. In fact, without some form of slow or lock-down Tower, much of the damage the Volcano Tower can do is lost due to its poor tracking of moving targets.
