Stone is not a resource that is given to you at the start of the game - instead, you have to reach a Level 7 HQ before you are able to build your first Quarry, which is the building that generates Stone. It is required for high-level upgrades of buildings - basically as they become stronger they are required to be built out of stone.

Generating Stone

Stone is primarily generated with Quarries, which are opened up to you once your Headquarters reaches Level 7. Like the Sawmill and Iron Mine, you can only have one quarry, regardless of what level your Headquarters is. Below you will find all the information you need on which levels provide what amount of Stone to your empire.

Other ways to generate Stone

As well as Quarries, there are also a few other ways to ensure you have all the Stone you need to be able to upgrade your high-level buildings. First, try to liberate resource bases. If these have Quarries on, then you will receive a shipment of Stone alongside the Gold and whatever other boats visit your base on a regular basis.

Secondly, you earn Stone when you defeat an enemy who has it stored in his buildings. Once you are a high enough level, this should become a regular occurrence.

Finally, you can get Stone by digging up the few rocks that you will find around your base, for a small amount of Gold. Once these are gone, however, you will have to use other means to get your Stone.

Best way to get stone is upgrade your submarine ,try it

Save up diamond to upgrade ur HQ so u can get the quarry. That's what I did

Added 1st Nov 2015, ID #621636

Best way to move forwards is to put your base out front to be destroyed, don't destroy any bases (this will increase your trophies, and you don't want this.

Once your trophies have dropped, find new opponents, and they will be easier.

Once you have a full map of easy players to kill, nice your hq back into a secured spot. Once you have enough time, destroy all the bases one after another, till you have gathered all the easy resources. Then do your upgrade without leaving the game. Sometimes you'll need some diamonds to top up the missing resources, but not many.

Hope this helps you all.

Boom beach is fantasic at the begining of the game. But the owners definitly need to sort how the game plays when you are further into it. Gets impossible to save anything as u get raided and if i try invaiding other islands my opponents get harder

Was fun until this stupid stone glitch. Guess me and this game is done

Added 28th Aug 2015, ID #603296

Go to base and upgrade. Download, buy missing stone and whatever with diamonds you've accumulated.

Added 10th Jul 2015, ID #582584

I am glad that I am not alone. Stuck on level 15 without anyway to get stone. It seems hopeless and I was having fun until I hit this stone wall! I need some tips on how to get stone!

Added 26th May 2015, ID #561393

You're supposed to attack people on the map. Tons of targets have stone. Upgrade your radar.

Added 2nd Jun 2015, ID #564852

Yep always get bases easy higher than me both to attack and be attacked. Can't level up to bold a quarry

Added 10th May 2015, ID #554628

I can't either with all the people raiding me and I can't raid them I'm only what level 12 and their what level 17 with way better defenders. If they do it, it has to be possible?

Added 10th May 2015, ID #554551

Anyone else stuck not being able to get 6000 stone to upgrade the hq to build a quarry. How am I meant to get this first amount. I've started trying to go step by step up the vault until I can save 3000+ at a time. I think the economics might be a bit broken lol

Added 14th Apr 2015, ID #542718

Use dimonds

Added 6th May 2015, ID #552804

I'm with y'all I always get lvl 15s but I'm only lvl 11

Added 9th Mar 2015, ID #526254

Well at least I'm not alone....
Also stuck with no way to generate stone or defeat enemies with stone as they are too strong, much higher level...

Added 8th Mar 2015, ID #526160

Im level 15 and I am literally stuck. I can't get stone through destroying bases because it's giving me high level guys who I wouldn't even pass the beach. Or it gives me people that have no stone. Also I have had enough stone on two occasion but I keep getting raided and losing all of it. This feature is really stupid and needs to be fixed.

Added 8th Mar 2015, ID #525912

Why ?? No download?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!???!?!!!!!!?!??!!!??????

Added 12th Feb 2015, ID #514969

yeah, catch 22 without stone. I guess it forces you to attack islands with stone resources.

Added 8th Feb 2015, ID #513376

How do I get stones?

Added 6th Feb 2015, ID #512429

Too Easy!!!!!

Added 3rd May 2015, ID #551149

What resources do I need to get a quarry

Added 28th Jan 2015, ID #508542

The vault can hold stone after a few upgrades. That's how you'll have to do it

Added 27th Dec 2014, ID #491003

How the hell do I upgrade my base to level 11.
I can't store enough stone to upgrade without
Upgrading my stone storage.
Which in turn, won't let me upgrade till I have a level 11
Base. I'm stuck in a catch 22.
Help in this matter would be gratefully received
