Boom Beach Wiki Machine Gun
Unlocked at HQ Level 4
Machine guns can lay down early suppressing fire on an area in front of them. Good against masses of low HP units, they can pick off Riflemen and Zookas if the opportunity presents itself.
General Strategy:
  • Machine Guns fire randomly in a spread in front of them. The closer an enemy moves to one, the more direct shots they will take. For this reason, Warriors should not attack them head-on.
  • Machine Guns don’t possess very strong damage per second and will have trouble against Heavies backed up by other units.
  • Use Machine Guns to protect key areas or defend buildings that cannot deal with large numbers of units, eg. Sniper Towers, Cannons.

The all heavy and zooka rush

Heavies can withstand a lot of machine gun fire, so a group of zookas or riflemen behind them can dismantle a machine gun. On defense, consider placing cannons or sniper towers within range to remove the heavies.
