Boom Beach has brought new exciting features on its latest update. At last! The military mobile game finally have heroes that will lead the army.
There are two heroes available in the game: Sergeant Brick and Captain Everspark. Yes, they are both women. Each of them have a set of skills that can be used for the advantage of any attack. However, only one skill can be used in a single raid.
Sergeant Brink is a veteran stranded on your island. She can be unlocked by repairing the shack on the shore. She has three skills: (1) the Cluster Grenade, (2) Iron Will, and (3) Battle Orders. Cluster Grenade allows the Sergeant Brick to throw cluster grenade to enemy buildings. Iron Will provides an aura that makes friendly troops durable. Lastly, Battle Orders increases the speed and damage of friendly troops.
The other hero, Captain Everspark is like a mechanic witch (like that of COC) because of her passive ability to spawn critters in a particular number of seconds. She can be unlocked after defeating Col. Gearheart or if your HQ reaches level 14. She has three skills: (1) Critter Swarm (2) Explosive Charges and (3) Universal Remote.
There is a new feature added in the game — Trader. These brought new currencies in the game play: trader tickets and Hero Tokens. The former is used to buy trader crates from the trader and the latter will be used to upgrade hero perks. You may notice that the trader looks like Col. Gearheart.
Unlike Clash of Clans, the heroes cannot participate in defending the base. However, to compensate with the added hero feature, the Wepaon Lab can now deploy 3 prototypes at level 5. The Machine gun has also new improvements on range and damage.
