Cannon towers are the primary defensive structure for lanes and gates. There are typically one on each side of a gate, with other towers spread through each lane of a map. Towers will always target minions over heroes.[1]

Development Edit

In the September, 2012 build of Heroes of the Storm, cannon towers were spread throughout towns rather than being confined to choke points.[2]
