· NEW Buildings: Buildings are a fantastic new addition which offer a great tactical advantage to the classic Worms gameplay. Players can now enter buildings amongst the landscape and fire off shots from inside, but when the turn passes, their worm will be hidden inside.
· NEW Crafting: Weapons and utilities can be crafted during the player’s turn or even in between turns during online play, as the opposing teams take their turns. Crafting really expands the weapon set and adds in many brand new fun weapons including the Party Balloon, Luzi, Electric Sheep, Sticky Grenade and Concrete Angry Donkey to name but a few.

Further ingredients can then be collected from crafting crates or scavenged by dismantling existing weapons. Can’t reach the enemy worm and you’ve only got a Baseball Bat? Dismantle it and craft a grenade!
