7 Killer Troop Combos in Boom Beach

7

Scorchers and Tanks

This is an expensive but deadly troop combination for players who have reached the later stages of the game. In this combination, your tanks are there to do most of the damage while the Scorchers act as (very erratic) shields to attract the attention of all the base defenses.

A common setup for players with eight landing craft is to use three Scorchers and fill the rest with Tanks. You’ll need a lot of Gunboat Energy to pull off this combination, not only to unload the units but to take out enemy Boom Cannons first!

  1. What’s your favorite troop combination? Something you’ve read about here or something totally different?

    • I easily take down Personal Bases, Villages, as well as battle the Op Bases with my “Grenics” (21 lvl 8 Grens & 4 lvl 8 Medics) with little to no casualties. I was a little surprised & hurt that you didn’t include them in the list of “Killer Troop Combos”. I get that because of the Grens inaccuracy, many people find them useless and therefore avoid them entirely. But those ppl overlook the Grens splash damage their grenades causes, just like Mortars. But I would have thought that with your experience (I’m assuming here) you would have realized the Grens effectiveness at quickly destroying Person bases. Just ask any victim of such a swift take down who was left with insignificant casualties to earn any diamonds from the raid. I’d like to think that they would agree with me. I entertain my BB friends with my replays, often changing their opinion of Grens. Hopefully you’ll correct your oversight in your next write up. OR not.

      • Hi Seadog, I have tried that combination before but honestly not that much. I’ll give them a spin and post what I find. Thanks for the tip!

          Actually, I wouldn’t do that. Grenadiers are very inaccurate and the opponent can have a mortar that will take them down EASILY. But, I’ll try it.

      • 6 barges of grenadiers, two of medics.
        Might be inaccurate at hitting the target they’re aiming at, but it devastates anything placed behind.
        Just take out any stunning weapons & front-line boom-cannons first.
        Fantastic tactic.
