Boom Beach tanks

  • Tanks can take many hits in Boom Beach and they also have more firepower. Unfortunately they are relatively slow. Therefore they're mainly used for the protection of units that have low health.
  • Place the tanks before 'glass cannon' units so they can survive longer. You can achieve more efficient fighting with this tactic.

Boom Beach tower protection

  • Place a tower as back as far as possible because it has a large range.
  • If you need to destroy a tower you should attack with shock bombs.

Boom Beach heavy units

  • The heavy unit is an excellent offensive unit in Boom Beach. He's a real team player. He provides much protection, especially to Riflemen or Zookas. It's best to position him behind the tanks so they can shoot longer.
  • If a heavy unit in Boom Beach flies in the air you should project him as far away from the troops as possible. If he explodes he can damage your troops. This impending explosion can be used to your advantage against enemy troops.

Boom Beach combat

  • Groups provide a lot of protection in Boom Beach. They can do very little alone but in groups they are quite effective.
  • The emphasis in Boom Beach combat is getting Zookas protected enough to unleash their full destructive power. Combat tactics should revolve around this key concept.
  • The warrior in Boom Beach is perfect to kill stationary guns like rocket launchers and mortars.
  • Proper use of medics in Boom Beach can decide a battle. Pay attention to their safety but ensure they don't fall too far behind otherwise they can't help faster units. If you leave them unprotected they will be easy targets for enemies.
