I am a boom beach player like you and anyone else. (I just assume that you are one since you click on this article or at least you are interested.)
Among all the attack strategies that I have tried, there is only one that I can recommend. The “tank + grenadier” combo. This will guarantee a total wipe out on the enemies’ bases.
However, you cannot simply execute this combo if your headquarters is not at least level 16. If you are sick with the classic “Heavy Zooka” strategy, you might find this tactic refreshing. Plus, the best thing about it is that you will have the fewest casualties.
All you have to train at least three boats full of tanks and the rest are grenadiers. You might opt to put some medic for insurance purposes.

Still not convinced? The logic goes like this. The tanks will truly serve as tanks. They will protect the grenadiers at the back. The grenadiers will destroy of the mines and boom mines which are great threats for tanks. They also soften the lives on building behind the closest target. That is why, tanks can move on to the next target building. As an additional option, medics come in handy too because they keep all the units alive.
However, there are some woes for this kind of strategy. You have to be careful on some threats. The number one villain of this attack is the shock launcher. Then, you have the boom cannons that will easily destroy your tanks in a matter of seconds. Rocket launchers are dangerous too as long as your grenadiers are not positioned properly. So, better use your artillery wisely during the game.
Lastly, check the base before you attack. This may not always be successful. But, compared to other attacks, this is the least crucial. So, you can play with comfort and less stressful in striking that HQ.
