Starship Troopers: Extermination – How to Build Better Walls

In this guide I will show you how to build a kick ass wall by making one small change to the base layout. This will ensure you kill 99% of all bugs with no galactic brain super theory. Literally, one small change and you have a kick ass defense.

 

Step 1: Stop building dumb walls

Do not build a wall at the very edge of the base. Here’s why:

  • 👎 You can’t shoot bugs at the base of the wall
  • 👎 Sentry Guns inside the wall can’t shoot directly down either
  • 👎 The wall blocks line of sight for everyone else
  • 👎 A worker bug can kill it
  • 👎 You look like a smooth brain (even the brain bug wont eat your noggin)

Step 2: Use a bunker and build the wall deeper


Literally, just build the wall slightly deeper inside the base and cover it with a bunker.

  • 🧠 Build a bunker at the edge of the base
  • 🧱 Build the wall half a square inwards, run the wall as far as it needs to go
  • 🐜 When the bugs attack a single Bastion can defend the entire wall solo
  • 🥇 Feel like a winner
  • 🚶‍♂️ Virgin bugs walks home in shame

Step 3: Add extras to make a super wall

Bonus extras; the short walls add a lot of durability to entire wall. Do not underestimate the power of a buffer zone!

  • 🤖 Add a sentry gun in the middle of the wall. Will kill everything for you
  • 🧱 Build Short Walls 1/4 towards the edge (at the edge works too)
  • ⛔ This creates a buffer zone to delay the bugs from getting to the main wall
  • 🎯 Add any Sensor Beacons or Shock Beacons in front of the short walls
