One of the most often overlooked Boom Beach strategies is to employ the “Rooka” strategy, which basically combines Riflemen and Zookas to take out large sections of your enemy’s base. This attack strategy essentially relies on overwhelming numbers of Riflemen leading the charge, with Zookas running behind them to cause maximum damage. Although not nearly as popular as the Heavy + Zooka combination attack, Rooka is fun to use.
Today we’ll break down Tank Tactics and how you can improve your base to defend against them. Tanks and Tank + Medic combos are a very potent late game troop combination due to their high HP, range, and respectable damage. In the hands of a skilled commander, Tanks can find blind spots in a base’s defense and pick them off like heavily armored snipers with their range.
The Sculptor creates powerful statues that can help our war effort tremendously. Each new statue is unique, and its powers can’t be predicted! You can salvage a statue to recover a refined Power Stone. Upgrade the Sculptor to deploy more statues. You can only have one Masterpiece of the same bonus type.
Use Troops with high hitpoints as a living shield or meat shield for troops with low hitpoints. Troopslike the Heavy or Scorcher can take a lot of hits and can therefore be used as a shield for other more vulnerable troops like the Zooka or Rifleman.
Power Stones are used to make Statues. There are 4 types of Power Stones: Life, Ice, Magma, and Dark. There are 3 sizes of Power Stones: Fragment, Shard, and Crystal. It is possible to obtain Power Stones and keep them before you have built the Sculptor, however those that are will only be obtainable through the Daily Reward. Any Power Stones you earn are stored on your base. You will not be able to see how many Power Stones you have until the Sculptor is built, nor are they usable until then.
Having a strong base layout is one of the most important parts of Boom Beach. The stronger your base is, the greater your chance of repelling attacks, collecting Intel, and saving your Resources andVictory Points.
