Grenadier Update!

Boom Beach Wiki New Unit Grenadier

New Unit Incoming! | The Grenadier
Rejoice commanders, a new powerful unit has joined the ranks and he’s ready to rock!

The Grenadier! Unlocked at HQ 16, the Grenadier deals area damage by lobbing his grenades from long range! Here’s a breakdown of some of his strengths and weaknesses.

  • The unit is a long-range infantry able to fire AOE grenades (though very inaccurately).
  • His range is the greatest among any troop, even tanks, meaning that he can sit safely behind tanks in order to deal out lots of damage.
  • He can attack Flamethrowers, Machine Guns, and Cannons from outside their range!
  • The damage strikes in a small AOE, and the difference/drawback between him and a Zooka is that the time between his shots is much longer, his shots are inaccurate, and his unit size is 3 times as large as a Zooka (6 size/unit).
  • His health places him higher than Riflemen and just under Warriors. He can take a hit, but it isn’t necessarily his forte!

Update: Invasion Cap and Rate Changes

Posted by & filed under News.

Boom Beach Wiki Task Force Invasion Cap

The latest Task Force update brought about a lot of great and interesting social and competitive content.

However, there were also some hotly debated topics about the changes to the invasion rate and the cap – namely that the maximum number of enemy bases a player could have on their map was greatly reduced.

  • The max number of enemy bases on the map was 24 bases at radar level 20 and even lower for other levels of radar
  • This meant that players who had more than the max allowable enemy bases on their map would not see any new invasions come, even if they waited for several hours or days.
  • Also players who had cleared their map would not necessarily get invaded very quickly as the rate and chance of invasions was reduced.
  • Since getting invaded is based on chance, it was theoretically possible to never get invaded if you were really, really unlucky.

While the rates were low after the Task Force update, SuperCell released an update today to help fix some of the issues with the invasion cap and invasion rates.» read the rest!
