Tanking Tanks – Guide to Defending Against Tanks

Posted by & filed under Defense Strategy, Master Strategist.

Today we’ll break down Tank Tactics and how you can improve your base to defend against them.

Tanks and Tank + Medic combos are a very potent late game troop combination due to their high HP, range, and respectable damage.

In the hands of a skilled commander, Tanks can find blind spots in a base’s defense and pick them off like heavily armored snipers with their range. So the question is, how do you defend against these iron-clad war machines?

Tanks main foes are single target, high damage per second defenses like Cannons, Boom Cannons, and groups of Sniper Towers.

Conversely, they will shrug off area damage from Mortars and Machine Guns and even completely out-range Flamethrowers. With that said, an emphasis needs to be placed on keeping your Cannons, Boom Cannons, and Sniper Towers well protected if you want to repel a Tank attack.

Here’s what you need to know.

Commander Coblt submitted this base to Reddit. He is looking for improvements to his level 35 base, so we’re here with some advice!

Boom Beach Level 35 Base Defense Strategy

At First Glance:

  • Ok, so there’s some pretty big changes that need to be made, one of which is our most talked about recommendation: spacing.
  • Spacing breaks down into how far apart your defenses are, what distance your defenses can reach when they are x-blocks apart, and how much concentrated firepower you have in an area so that they can focus fire a group of units.
  • Many bases have problems similar to Coblt’s, as the buildings are too spaced out. At the moment, a group of Tanks or Heavy/Zookas could march in and pick off the defenses one-by-one when multiple defenses could have been hammering on the attackers all at the same time. Having defenses spaced out also means that some buildings will just be completely out of range of the attackers and will be avoided all together.
