Dr. Terror Guide

0

The arrival of Dr. Terror in Boom Beach is now a very common event, happening four times each week on a six-day cycle. Confused? Check out our complete event guide for more details. In the old system, Dr. Terror arrived on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and each time his invasion lasted for exactly 24 hours. Now with the new event cycles, you have 21 hours to complete the event.

During that time, you can attack Dr. Terror’s island base to claim as many resources as possible, including the rare Dark Power Stones, which are used to build “purple” statues. In the new event system, each stage has a guaranteed number and type of power stone reward for victory.

Each time you defeat Dr. Terror, the island re-appears as a subsequent stage, and is harder to complete. Beginning players should have no difficulty finishing the earlier stages, but you’ll need high level troops to take on the later stages, as the difficulty increases quickly.

There are now seven different stages to complete in each Dr. Terror event, as opposed to 20 under the old system. However, the difficulty progression in the stages is much quicker and the new Stage 7 is roughly the same difficulty as the old Stage 20. There are a wide variety of defensive buildings in each of the stages, and Dr. Terror’s bases start gaining the additional defensive protection of ice statues beginning with Stage 3 in each event.

Although there’s less rewards in the new system than the old, the increased frequency of the events, along with the addition of the new events, helps spread out your ability to earn rewards over the course of the week.

There are two Dr. Terror islands. The first one is Dr. Terror’s standard tropical island base. The second is his volcano island. Both will appear twice during the 6-day event calendar. You must have defeated Lt. Hammerman’s level 10 base to participate in the normal island event and you must have defeated Lt. Hammerman’s level 20 base to participate in the volcano island event.

Resource Rewards

Here are the rewards you can earn in each of the new 7-stage Dr. Terror events. The rewards are a lot less than under the old system due to the significant reduction in stages for each event (see below for the archived tables from the old Dr. Terror events).

Here’s the big deal: the layout and defenses of each stage change each time. So there are no established guides or walkthroughs for the Dr. Terror events. You’ll have to rely on basic Boom Beach strategy and your own intuition to defeat him each time. However, some basic strategies do come into play, and you can review recent Dr. Terror walkthroughs for a good idea of how to defeat him. Here are some recent Dr. Terror walkthroughs on Youtube collected for your review.
