The Accelerator is a tower whose rate of fire is proportional to the amount of time for which it has been locked onto its current target.


The Accelerator gets a 25% fire rate increase for each shot at the same target. When it switches targets, the fire rate bonus is lost.

Strategic useEdit

The Accelerator is most effective at the cusp of a U-turn in the maze because there it can sustain fire upon a single target for the longest amount of time. Its increasing rate of fire makes it especially useful against slow enemies such as Hoverers, Soakers and Tanks, but suffers against fast targets such as Runners and Walkers.

Slow Fields built around the Accelerator are more beneficial to it than to other towers. An Amp Field may be placed at the end of the Accelerator's range so that players can freeze enemies on it when the Accelerator has been locked on them for a long time.


The Accelerator was revealed when the developers asked community members to translate its encyclopedia text into several languages. The Accelerator has a similar model to the Gatling from Sanctum 2 despite having a more similar function to the Focus laser. [1]
