Strategic Traps - Tier 1 - Tier 2 - Tier 3 - Tier 4

Iron Bricks are Tier 1 Units that players will have access to after completing the "Trap Building" research in the "Wall Traps" category of Research. New players might find it beneficial to stock up on Iron Bricks, to help fend off from other low level players. Although Iron Bricks offer very little protection, and can even be considered a "Tier 0" Unit due to the lack of stats, a large number of them can be made very quickly and for a very little cost, to help strengthen a players Empire. This can make them a viable option to fill some Wall Defence spaces before an event, after being attacked, or for a temporary defence boost while making higher tier traps.
