Zookas have incredibly high damage statistics, dealing out large amounts of damage per second. However, to make up for this, they have very low health, meaning you need to keep them well away from enemy turrets and use the likes of Heavies to draw enemy fire away from them.

Production Cost

Attack Range: Long/720

HQ Level Required: 5

Tips and Tactics

The key thing to remember with Zookas is that they are incredibly easy to destroy. If a Sniper Tower, Mortar or Machine Gun has them in their sights, you are likely to lose your Zooka units. With that being the case, be sure to deploy the likes of Heavies in front of your Zookas to soak up the shots so that they can get to their targets without being destroyed.

If you don't have Heavies, try to use your Gunboat artillery to take out any defenses that your Zookas will encounter before deploying them. You can then use Flares to direct the Zookas around any difficult defenses that remain and allow them to rain down their high damage attacks on the enemy HQ.
