Chaos is the replacement for Nightmare difficulty however with different mechanics and enemies. Players will need to utilize the new Shards system, Ascension, and strategize in hopes of beating the new Chaos difficulty.

Each Chaos tier introduces a new enemy.

Chaos I

In C1 you will first encounter Vanguards - shield goblins. They have a very high resistance to direct front damage, the best strategy against them is to use traps, auras, magic towers (like Ramster or Flamethrower) or build direct damage towers behind them.

Accessible after finishing the campaign.

Chaos II

Cyborks are an anti-trap/aura/node enemy introduced in Chaos II. If you’re attempting to take down Cyborks with these defenses, you’re going to have a hard time.

Accessible after reaching a champion score of 580.

Chaos III

Shield Geodes are introduced in this tier. They are crystals that emit an energy shield that reflects projectiles. Strategies against them are similar to Chaos I Vanguards, but because they have a shield all around them, placing towers from behind won't work, forcing a different approach.

Accessible after reaching a champion score of 1050.

Chaos IV

This Chaos is centered around the Berserker Orcs (commonly called "Lady Orcs"). Berserkers are all about being fast and dealing high damage upon reaching defenses, so using crowd control effects like stuns and knockups to slow them down are your main counter for this threat. Cyborks counter most of those kinds of effects, so you won't see Cyborks in this Chaos tier anymore, but there will be Shield Geodes and Vanguards present.

Accessible after reaching a champion score of 1740.

Chaos V

Chaos V is all about Dark Assassins. As opposed to other enemies, Dark Assassins instead focus player heroes. They sneak up on players, at which point a purple fog gathers around you - they will then teleport to you and deal a great amount of damage and afflict you with silence, preventing you from using all your abilities and basic attacks, all you can do is run around and activate pet abilities. The best way to get Dark Assassins off your back is to run to your defences/allies so they can kill it, activate immunity pet skill or stun them. The most popular method is to utilise Cannons with Stun Fire or Heavy Cannonball shards in par with Sharpened Spikes shard on blockades. Assassins attack in a cone, so you can easily fail the map by running around defences or the Core with Assassins on your back. In this tier you will also encounter Cyborks, Berserker Orcs and sometimes a single Shield Geode per wave (usually can spawn in wave 3 and later ones), it's crucial to check where it will spawn and kill it as fast as possible on this difficulty level.
