War Tortoise Tips & Strategy Guide: How to Turn Your War Tortoise into a Beast

Foursaken Media’s mobile game, War Tortoise, may sound like an arcade-style title, but this new iOS game is actually a more action-packed, more sophisticated title where you’re taking control of the titular War Tortoise. And no, it’s not an animal, but a heavy tank that’s armed to the teeth with powerful weapons and automated turrets. You can equip it with weapons, recruit troops, create defenses, gather resources, and do everything you could to defend yourself against the enemy. According to Foursaken Media, this game combines the mechanics of shooters, idle games, and tower defense titles. You can also discover eight new worlds in the game, lots of units, upgrades, and defenses for you to unlock, “dozens” of unique enemies, and exciting battles against these enemies.

Yes, this is an interesting hybrid of different gaming genres, and that might make some things challenging for you. However, we’re here to help you overcome those challenges, with this War Tortoise strategy guide. So without further ado, let’s get to those tips, which cover a wide range of topics and aspects about the game.

1. There’s No Need To Aim Your Weapon

If you’re a first-time player, your first instinct may be to aim your weapon, but as you’ll find out soon enough, that isn’t at all necessary. Well, maybe there is a bit of aiming involved; after all, you’ll only fire at enemies if they’re in the red circle. But you don’t need to differentiate between headshots and body shots, or prioritize headshots for an instant kill; there doesn’t seem to be any differences or any special bonuses depending on where you hit the enemy.

2. Fire At The Enemies With Exclamation Points Before Everyone Else

Enemies that have an exclamation point over their heads are especially dangerous, so you want to focus on them first. They may also be the enemies who can get at you with especially quick attacks, or those who target you in specific. That exclamation point is the game’s way of saying you’ve got to focus on those enemies, so fire at them and prioritize killing them before the others. You’ll have an easier time that way, by focusing first on those that are really dangerous.

3. Focus On The Upgrades

The success of your War Tortoise’s run would depend on your upgrades. And these aren’t just weapon upgrades, but all upgrades in general, may it be for a weapon or for your allies. But one thing you may be wondering is how to prioritize those upgrades. What should you be looking at first? Read on for our next few tips and we’ll tell you what.

4. Beginner Upgrades – What To Start With?

Those who have just started playing the game can start out with the Mouse Assault Squad, followed by the Sniper; that latter weapon is very useful against the Rhinoceros Beetles. You can then upgrade the Mining Tower to Level 2, then work on upgrades for your Machine Gun Damage. Once that’s been upgraded, move on to the Mouse Gunner Squad, and upgrade your Towers. As you go along, upgrade their damage, and add more of them for you to upgrade eventually.

5. Next Up, Upgrade Your Stats

After upgrading your initial Towers’ damage and adding a few more, you can then look into the various stats available in War Tortoise. One interesting thing about the stat upgrade system in this game is that there are sub-upgrades; for example, there are upgrades for Health and Armor within the Tortoise’s Defense tree. And when it comes to the statistics you should be upgrading, there’s no real best way to go about this, just as long as your main focus in your upgrades is to increase the damage of the targets. This could mean upgrades such as your allies’ health, or your reload time. Reload time is self-explanatory, while increasing the health of your allies allows them to soak up more damage.

6. Critical Rate Should Probably Come Last

Usually, critical hit rate is a very important stat to upgrade, but in this game, your crit hit rate is better left as-is until you’ve upgraded everything else. The same applies to anything else where the resulting changes wouldn’t be too drastic. Yes, we understand that it’s best to upgrade anything, but you wouldn’t want to sink a lot of money into an upgrade that won’t do you much more good in the long run.

7. Keep It Classic, And Keep It Simple With Your Weapons

Sometimes, the best weapon to use is a classic one, meaning something that’s so ubiquitous, yet not as powerful than the other weapons you can acquire. But why should you stick to your machine gun as long as possible? Yes, the machine gun can be considered as a “classic” by the above definition, but you’ll still want to upgrade it and keep unlocking upgrade tiers for that weapon. Even out your upgrades on your machine gun, and keep holding on to it.

8. Which Perks Should You Go For?

War Tortoise is one of those games that gives perks to its players. In this case, you can get perks for completing a goal or buying a new shield. Like in other games (often RPGs) with a perks mechanic, these boosts are permanent, so you’ll still have them with you upon moving on to the Next Generation. You can choose a perk for free for starters, and building on what we told you a couple tips ago, you should choose the ones that are related to the damage you can deal out.

Additional money is included in the list of perks you can get, but since you want to be successful more so in the long run than in the short term, you’ll still be better off choosing a perk that improves damage, rather than one that fattens your in-game wallet. Aside from that, you can go to the Store and purchase that power-up that allows you to start at Level 2 when you’ve made it to a new generation.

9. When Should You Head Off To The Next Generation?

Eventually, you’ll be itching to move on to a new dimension or, in this case, a new generation. But when should you do this? We would suggest that you make the move to another generation if you’ve gotten stuck somewhere in the game. This may sound counterintuitive, but it’s actually a good idea, as it helps further your progress, and allows you to gain better bonuses. The bonuses for moving to a new generation would depend on the number of upgrades you made or the stage you were in when you decided to move forward. Hit the Next Generation button at the right time, and you’ll be able to earn more money for upgrades.

This would be our collection of tips and hints for War Tortoise. In case we come up with more tips in the near future, then we will share them here.
