Walls are defensive structures used to keep potential threats at bay. There are four tiers available, each requiring its own technology to unlock it and additional resources to build.

Makeshift Walls Edit

Makeshift Walls are the first type of walls which players can construct. Players must research Makeshift Walls in order to build. Once Defensive Walls is researched, it can be upgraded to the next tier.

These walls are made up of scrap metal sheets and have barb wire strands across the top. Makeshift Walls are considerably taller than the in-game walls on prior versions. It's not possible to place anything on this wall, nor can anyone circulate over it.

Makeshift walls are used in game locations such as Fort Simion and Slave Markets.

Defensive Wall II Edit

This model allows the placement of turrets on it, as well as free circulation of the defenders over it. It's a direct improvement over the Makeshift Walls and requires the tier II Defensive Walls research in order to be build. It can´t be upgraded directly.

History Edit

Defensive Walls have been a part of Kenshi since version 0.40 but received a visual and stat change with version 0.65.0. The new version of the Defensive Wall is constructed with pieces of metal and a railed off walkway.

While there is no way to build the older version of the wall through the game's build menu it is possible to place them through the in-game editor.
