The Palintonon was a variation of the ballista that threw large stone balls on top of structures like a mortar instead of throwing projectiles directly at it. These artillery pieces had a range of 150m. with stone balls the weight of 27kg. requiring walls to be 5m. thick to withstand the impact. They were not treated a anti-personel artillery because of the target being able to move unlike a structure.
- The Palintonon has the longest attack range in the game. However, its attack range is greater than its sight range; to utilize the full potential of the Palintonon's massive attack radius, units must be used to provide line of sight beyond the Palintonon's sight range.
- It has a minimum attack range of 17, so it is best to defend this area and prevent enemy units from entering it.
