Offensive Application

Flamethrowers start peppering your opponents’ bases soon after you’ve unlocked Warriors as a natural counter. They deal a lot of damage in the initial spray and cause your units to burn over time. The fiery parting gift makes them much more potent against swarms than similar garrisons such as Mortars.

How to fight against Mortars:

  • Flamethrowers are absolutely lethal against Riflemen and Warriors. The best strategy is non-conflict: avoid Flamethrowers if possible, even if it means walking into a stack of Sniper Towers. Thankfully, their short range will make this a much easier task.
  • When you absolutely must deal with one of these defenses head-on, such as in the case where it’s immediately next to the enemy HQ, use your Gunboat!

Commander’s Journal – The Mortar

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

Hey commanders! Welcome to the Journal, your field guide to the powerful and varied Boom Beach Arsenal. Up on the roster Mortar, a slow-arming but much needed area attack defense.

Offensive Application

Opposing Mortars start showing up in enemy bases at the way beginning of your command, and can be a problem for early-on full Riflemen assaults. Later in the game they mostly act as a movement deterrent – a base structure that can be easily countered but require you to spend Gunboat energy to evade or approach an enemy base from a forced angle.

How to fight against Mortars:

  • Mortars reload extremely slowly. Use this fact to move your troops either into their blindspots or evade them entirely. Be careful when using Flares – we recommend you zoom in your view to the farthest level to make sure you tap on the ground just before the Mortar, and not on it.
