Siege operators are responsible for manning siege weapons, loading them with any available ammunition, and firing on command or at will. A sufficiently skilled siege operator will always fire them perfectly straight (to the north, south, east, or west), never veering off to the sides.

This is a task sometimes delegated to peasants as a cheap labor, as it can get them skilled swiftly. Catapults are also sometimes used to destroy unwanted stone.

While viewing a dwarf's general stats, this skill is grouped with the combat skills instead of the typical labor skills.
