There are six kinds of troops in Boom Beach:
Here are all the official descriptions of the Boom Beach Troops from the game.
Rifleman at the ready! Basic infantry units, the Riflemen are able to deal out and withstand moderate damage. In large enough numbers, they are almost unstoppable.
The Heavy can absorb a lot of damage and still keep on moving forward. He’s happy to draw all the attention, and will take a punch to give a punch!
With its powerful gun and thick armor, the Tank is a real war machine! Due to its weight, each Tank needs extra Energy to land ashore. Cannons, Boom Cannons and Boom Mines deal double damage to tanks.
The Tribal Warrior is an awesome sight in battle. He charges fearlessly, knowing that his Crystal Hammer will heal him with every blow.
For long-range attacks, call in the Zooka. A few Zookas can completely devastate a whole enemy base, but don’t let them come under fire from enemy turrets!
Make love, not war! The Medic is opposed to all kinds of violence. Instead of grabbing a rifle, he heals other troops to help our cause.
