Mole Fort (sometimes Mole Forts) is a scheme that combines the themes of the Fort and Mole Shopper schemes. Two teams of players each occupy an island, comprising a solid block of land with some small holes for worms to start in. Players begin with a very limited selection of tools and weapons and must collect them from crates, digging caves within their fort to allow space for crates to appear.


Players start by placing their worms onto one of the forts. The first player to do so can choose which of the two forts their team shall occupy.

The aim of the game is to create space for crates to randomly spawn on the players' side of the map, but at the same time keep the fort in a defensible condition. As more crates appear throughout the game, the players get access to a variety of weapons. Players must generally expect everything from the hostile fort.

There are no rules. Unlike in the Fort scheme, invasions of any kind are allowed.

The scheme is not currently supported by HostingBuddy.


Experienced players will be familiar with the scheme's principle strategies:

  • Invasion following Uzi/Minigun/Handgun/Napalm - Some forts are often placed too far to be reached directly by using parachute. In order to climb enemy's fort you can shoot its surface with some dispersed bullets on the upper part of the walls. This would be your landing zone in case of Invasion with parachute. The exposed flaws on the wall enable you to stand on them and climb upwards. If the wind is helpful enough to make you reach this part of the wall, it will help you as well to get to the enemies and attack. Watch out for your time limit!! The single flight may take 25-30 seconds of your turn. Recommended for players who are totally acquainted with the use of parachute. The enemy may as well block the climbing area with a girder, if he feels insecure.
  • Arms Race - Turn your fort into your own military factory! Blow big parts of your fort in order to be the first who finds French Sheep, Earthquake or Patsy's Magic Bullet. If you don't find a better use for Old Woman, blow it inside your own fort for more crates.
  • Invasion with Mole - This particular type of Invasion must be carried out when you travel to enemy's fort with your head facing the enemy. As you come closer to the walls than the distance of 1 long girder, throw a mole and let him dig your way into the fort. It will build the safe nest for your spy. You don't really need to hurry since you lose your turn within the mole being thrown. It's recommended for people whose "landing zones" were blocked with a girder. The invader who is hidden in the walls is usually not exposed to instant attacks from the enemy.
  • Grenade Fireworks - You can try to destroy the roof of the enemy's fort and throw a lot of explosives inside. Sooner or later the enemies may have serious problems with reconstructing their base.
  • Bridge - Build at least 1 girder between the forts. Such a platform turns enemy's fort into easily accessible by using parachute. However, the wind may put your position in danger as well.


The origin of this scheme is unknown but it dates back to 2014 at the latest, as the earliest known map for this scheme was uploaded to the Worms Map Database by its author TOP in June of that year.

The scheme has featured in some competitions, appearing in the Worm Olympics in 2014 and in cups hosted on The Ultimate Site between 2014 and 2016.
