Tale of Diep (ToD) is no longer under active development as a derivative of and remains here as an archive, though spin-offs such as The Extended Tale of Diep remain active. For info on the successor to Tale of Diep, now an independent work called "A Tale Where Nothing Matters", visit its Discord server here.

Warden is one of the upgrades to the Punisher, upgraded to at Level 45. It is a member of the massive Lancer branch. Created by Zathsu.


The Warden looks like Punisher, but there is a shorter second lance on the back. Instead of one Smasher hexagon, it has two rotating in opposite directions like a Landmine. The random barrel-less Auto Turret on top is removed, and is instead replaced with an actual Auto Turret.


  • Like the Punisher, does have not have the charge ability most Lancer upgrades do.
  • Has an even higher movement speed than the Punisher.
  • Damage still escalates as time attacking the same target goes on, but a lot slower. Has a higher starting damage though.
  • Right-clicking will make the Warden rotate very fast for a short while, making it act kind of like a buzzsaw.
    • Because it doesn't last long and the blades constantly move, the damage does not escalate.
    • The lances pass through tanks during this ability but still deal damage all the same.
    • Damage is actually way lower than its regular damage because of its area effect.
  • Auto Turret works the same as any other Auto Turret.
