One Unit Series – Medic

Posted by & filed under Attack Strategy, Defense Strategy, Guides.

Hey Commanders!

Welcome back to the one unit series, where feature the strengths and weaknesses of your Boom troops. There’s nothing else quite like the Medic Platoon. It’s a support unit that can really reward you for strong positioning play. Pair these troops with a squad of Tanks or Riflemen and watch them go to town!

Medics, in Depth

Usage

  • Medics are uniquely suited to use the buddy system! Pack along at least two Medics in your landing craft – they’ll prioritize healing each other and keep stray sniper fire from ruining your day.
  • You can certainly pair your Heavies with Medics. However, watch out for not finishing combats in the 4 minute timeframe. Use this technique against an opponent that is using only an array of sniper towers to guard their headquarters.
  • Warriors and Medics don’t mix – they’ll speed off into combat and leave the support units in the dust to be picked off by poorly-guided mortars.

One Unit Series – Rifleman

Posted by & filed under Attack Strategy, Defense Strategy, Guides.

Hey Commanders!

Welcome back to the one unit series, where feature the strengths and weaknesses of your Boom troops. We’re going back to boot camp this week, by turning our eye on the humbled Rifleman regiment. It’s a unit that everyone has experience using, but we’ll see if we can teach you a couple new tricks. Benefiting from both swarm tactics and the fact that they’re likely the first unit you’ll have upgraded, Riflemen are useful way into the long game.

Riflemen, in Depth

Usage

  • Boom Beach heavily encourages you to use the Heavy – Riflemen combo at the start of the game, and for good reason – Sniper Towers can almost be ignored if you have a tank at the helm. What you’ll need to do is stagger the timing on your beach landings just a little so that the faster Riflemen don’t stumble into Mortars meant for your Heavies.

One Unit Series – Zookas

Posted by & filed under Attack Strategy, Guides.

Hey Commanders!

Welcome back to the one unit series, where feature the strengths and weaknesses of your Boom troops. This week, we’ll be examining the curious Zooka battalion. Although it may seem like a strong gust of wind can knock these units over, their damage potential is incredibly high. If you master their use, you will be well on your way to claiming enough resources for the late game.

Zookas, in Depth

Usage

  • Zookas will the be highest maintenance unit on your team. Snipers, Mortars, motion sickness, earthworms, mild sunlight… Seems like just about anything will kill these troops. Make sure to guard them with Heavies or swarms of other targets.
  • You’ll want to time your Zooka deployment a few seconds behind your main army so they’re not walking directly into the Mortars or Rockets fired at your first line. You can afford to be patient in battle as high firepower will ensure that, if they are left alive, they will clear the stage in the time limit.

Offensive Application

You’re going to face off against Rocket Launchers early on in your campaign, primarily in NPC levels and opponents’ Resource Bases. Sometimes it’ll even be at a point in the game where your only troops are Riflemen or Heavies – units that Rockets eat for breakfast. However, with concentration and a liberal use of Flares, you can make the best of a dangerous situation.

Here are a couple of specific combat tips when attacking:

  • Maneuvering into the Rocket’s blind spot is by far the most efficient way to take them down. Flare your troops into the zone just in front of the Rocket, even if it means taking sporadic fire from Machine Guns or Mortars along the way.
