Battle Bay is the biggest non-Angry Birds-related game yet by Rovio. This pirate simulator puts you in the fight against other players, five to a team. Your goal is to build a ship of your preference, complete with the weapons of your choice, and use them to destroy the other team’s ships. You can earn gold, sugar, pearls, and all kinds of other goodies. Read on for some tips and tricks for Battle Bay!
Right from the beginning you have a big assortment of cannons and other guns that you can choose from, and many of them have very different characteristics. Standard cannons allow you to fire frequently. Sniper cannons shoot farther but take longer to reload. Mortars cause splash damage and fire extremely long distance but take forever to reload. Pick based on your preferred battle style.
If you have a ton of gold but you don’t have enough parts for the next upgrade, especially for your rarer equipment, head to the store and purchase parts, as well as whatever else you need, in order to get the necessary resources. Keep your equipment as highly upgraded as possible in order to get the biggest edge in battle.
Choose your ships wisely, too. Some ships have different characteristics than others (higher defense, more speed, better acceleration) but others have different equipment slots that allow for a wider range of useful equipment. A ship with multiple red slots allows you to fire very frequently. Yellow slot items will do a non-damage impact to the other team, such as freezing their ships, allowing your teammates to get better shots in.
Play a good defense as well as a good offense. Watch out for mortar shots. When a mortar is about to land from the opposing team, a red circle will show up. Back out of that circle as quickly as you can to avoid getting hit. As far as the cannon shots, they are tougher to avoid, but your best bet is to constantly stay on the move. Hit the lock-on button to continue targeting ships even as you are moving around.
If you’re locked onto one ship but you see another ship that has less health left, go for that one instead so that you can reduce the enemy’s number of ships as quickly as possible. The less ships that they have, the less shots that they can fire at you and your team.
