Boom Beach Sniper Tower Guide
Offense- When it comes to the Sniper Tower, there are a few ways you can overpower them in Boom Beach. The first thing you can do is use flares, since flares are the best way to target the Sniper Tower. This is due to the fact that the troops will begin attacking the Sniper Tower after the flares are released, and that will help destroy the building quicker. The quicker you can destroy the Sniper Tower the better it will be for you since this can reduce the harm and risk to your army. You want to make sure you upgrade your army and weapons before getting into any battle though, which will also help when it comes to trying to quickly destroy an enemy Sniper Tower.
If you are not sure about destroying the Sniper Tower quickly or if you have the right items, you can always find help in the game which will tell you. Basically, you want to ensure you have a lot of flares and then upgrade your troops to ensure that you are always able to defeat the Sniper Tower no matter what level of upgrades have been completed on it.
You can also use a Heavy to shield your troops, which can decrease the amount of troop deaths you might encounter during an attack. Troop deaths get more severe as you progress in the game, so you want to keep as many of them alive as you can in the early stages of Boom Beach. Even if you use a lot of troops and overwhelm the Sniper Tower, you do risk a lot of casualties in the process if you are not using a Heavy to shield your troops. You also can disable the Sniper Towers, at least temporarily, by using a Shock Bomb. This will also help reduce the harm to your troops. The Heavy shield should also be upgraded regularly to ensure that you are working with top-notch gear and this will help you as you progress in the game to more difficult enemies and bases.
Defensively– In Boom Beach, the Sniper Tower also can help you defensively as well. If you want to use the Sniper Tower as part of your defensive strategy then follow these tips. Shielding your Sniper Tower is a good idea because they are more long-range, and troops might have a harder time targeting them. You also want to spread out the Sniper Towers because if they are close together, they can be taken out all at once by a Shock Bomb. The Sniper Tower is only useful when you have other defenses supporting it. You will also want to have your bases covered on the sides by the Sniper Towers. This is a good defensive strategy because this will prevent the opposition from flanking and using the Heavy-Zooka.
