Recommended Purchased Units

If money is an issue and budgeting Medal reserves is necessary, these units are good choices to have. Disclaimer: the following are opinion based. Usefulness is largely dependent on playstyle.

  • SV-001 Experimental (100 Medals): Great health and range. Speed is subpar but not an issue. An improvement over standard SV-001 but cheaper to produce.
  • Girida-O (30 Medals): Excellent choice for starting players. Cheap to produce, strong attack with stronger special attack
  • Slugnoid (60 Medals): "Crowd buffer" unit. Good range, with an unpredictable (but nonetheless useful) special attack.
  • LV Armor (120 Medals): Improved version of Slugnoid. Identical range, but special attack is instant and reliable
  • Hyakutaro (120 Medals): Unparalleled range, great special attack, very cheap to produce. Works wonders when given enough allied units to hide behind.
  • Chowmein-Conga (30 Medals): Cheap, fast moving, fast producing with extraordinary armor. Can easily overwhelm opponent from start to finish.
  • Bikers (20 Medals): Fast moving, fast producing. Allows extra damage to be dealt when heavy units are still on cooldown. Keeps up pressure while units are moving across battlefield.
  • Mars Mecha (100 Medals): "Tank" unit. Not very useful for attacking, but large hitbox easily diverts damage away from allied units. Cannot be knocked back.
  • Vanguard (220 Medals): Expensive to produce (450 AP) but extremely powerful. Most common units can be killed with three oft it's shots. Three of them at lv. 30 can beat even the most difficult Levels on their own.
  • Hi-Do (400 Medals): 2nd Most expensive unit in the game, but also extremely powerful. Both in attack and defense. Morden fires rockets at enemies that are close while a barrage of 6 missiles bombard enemies at long range. It's special attack is to fly above above enemy units and open up with it's chain gun for heavy damage, then it flies back to behind your base.
