Battle Bay is Rovio’s latest game, trading mean-spirited birds for tiny warships. It’s as good it as it gets when it comes to competitive mobile games.
While it’s great fun heading out to the high seas to challenge the competition, there’s a lot of strategy and planning involved, too. Here are a few tips to help you get ahead.
Stay out of the red circles
If you find yourself in the center of a big red circle, that’s your cue to speed out of there. Use your speed booster if you have it. If you can tell there’s an attack imminent, it’s best not to stick around. It's wise to stay back from enemies if possible, and make good use of the terrain. Find good cover wherever possible.
Teamwork makes the dream work
If you really want to work your way up the ranks, you’re going to have to rely on teamwork. Use the in-game chat commands if need be to rally your team members together and cooperate. Stay close to your allies and try to gang up on enemies who’ve gotten separated from the pack. Though it's tempting to go out on your own and start blasting other people, you're actually stronger together.
Switch to more powerful equipment ASAP
Battle Bay features a huge array of ship upgrades. You can win these parts by opening crates. In the beginning you'll be swamped with equippable items. As you gain in experience, make sure you’re switching to uncommon items so you can stay on top of the competition.
