Boom Beach Wiki Cannon
Unlocked at HQ Level 6
Cannons are good against tough targets and are the staple of many defenses.
General Strategy:
  • Cannons are unlocked at level 6 HQ and are powerful against large HP targets like Heavies, Tanks, and Warriors.
  • Cannons do not deal well with overwhelming numbers of troops like a mass of Riflemen due to their slow rate of fire.
  • Cannons deal double damage to Tanks making them one of the 3 main defenses against Tanks. This has been updated with the Scorcher Update so Cannon damage was increased but no longer does double damage to tanks.
  • Before deploying Tanks, it is important to destroy Cannons and Boom Cannons.

Level 3

Level 3 is a big turning point for your cannons at HQ levels 9 and under. Most opponents use artillery level 6 around this level which can deal 1180 damage per shot. At level 3, cannons have just enough HP (2370) to survive 2 shots and will require a third to be destroyed. Upgrading your cannons to level 3 is a great way to keep opponents from having enough firepower to destroy them at HQ levels 1-9.
