Insights from a member turned leader on how to operate and participate in a successful task force

Tag Team Attacks

The sound of machine guns firing from all direction, mortars dropping from the sky like hail, the thunderous boom from the canons, the shock to the bones from the shock launchers, and the relentless assault from the rockets.

Across my news feed, Jonny Danger writes “I can’t believe I took out Quantum, bro, my heart was racing. That was FUN!”

Indeed it was. Once a day, we all come together like brothers and sisters and battle the beast we all know as the Task Force Operation. One by one, we take turn and fight like a tag team wrestling match. At the end of the day, when it’s all said and done, we either cheer and congratulate each other or encourage each other and remind one another that tomorrow is another day.

Intimidating Factor

It is intimidating, even for the advanced players, to step on a base with maxed out rockets and shocks firing from all direction, and all you can do is hope that you can last another few seconds to take out that pesky rocket.» read the rest!

Hello Commanders! Are you ready to defend the Islands once again? The devious Dr. Terror has invaded once again, and you must save a village from his evil plans! Lot’s of players struggle with his defense so let’s talk about how to beat him.

Terror stage 1 (Level 8)

Terror stage 1 is a HQ level 8, with a single Shock Launcher. Have no fear as I have a brilliant technique to easily take this one down! Shock Launchers are one of the best defenses, but when alone they have a huge weakness!

If you can see in this picture when attacked by Heavies and Zookas the Shock Launcher will fire at the Heavies and the Zookas are untouched! Simply attack from the front with a Heavy/Zooka team, leaving a space between them and you can take this down with no casualties!! Be careful to leave space between heavies and Zookas or the Zookas will be hit on the walk there!» read the rest!

Will you dominate the archipelago with countless amounts of troops, create the rock solid dream beach that crushes your enemies, or achieve in BOTH?? Only the wisest and most intelligent commanders will succeed in this. Do you have what it takes?


Focused Offensive Strategy PROS

In order to easily defeat mercenary and blackguard bases, conquer in operations, seize resource bases, and bring home mass amounts of dough after a couple rounds of Dr. Terror, you’re going to need a solid offense. There are four main points of offensive strategy that can be used, configured, and upgraded in many different variations.

These points include: landing crafts, gunboat energy, troop level, and gunboat ability level. Every time each of these are upgraded, your offense becomes more versatile and efficient. The rewards for having a solid offense are huge amounts of loot. Focusing on offense only is recommended for very active players.

Focused Offensive Strategy CONS

Being able wield a mighty army and crush your opponents with ease is especially fun!!» read the rest!

Most important upgrades for your base.

When beginning a game like Boom Beach everyone wants to become the best they can as quickly as possible. At level 47, I realized that there are many things that I would have done differently to get a better start. My series of articles is going to highlight some of the easier ways you can improve yourself, in the quickest way possible.

First I recommend getting extremely comfortable with a specific troop. A lot of people switch different troops constantly, but knowing exactly how to control your best troop will make it easier on you once the bases get tougher and tougher. The best way to do this is by doing whatever you can to continually upgrade your ARMORY. In my opinion, next to your HQ, this is the single most important building on your base. No matter what troop you are best with, having the best possible out there will always be your way to big reward raids!» read the rest!
