War Factory 45 (or Colonel Gearheart War Factory 45) is an island on the archipelago that can be found after upgrading of radar to the level 15. This island is very important because it unlocks 2 very important things: War Factory event (every Thursday) and the second hero – Cpt. Everspark. But to open the hero and the event we need destory this 45 lvl Factory first. Moreover, we must to do it only by one successful attack… In this post, I’ll describe how to do it.
Let’s take a look at defense on the island:
At first glance, the defense doesn’t seem very strong because there are only 10 defensive buildings (including two protos) that covers left side of base and can cause damage if to attack from there. However, not everything is so simple…Firstly, the prototype defenses have big stock of health and to destroy at least one of them directly from the Gunboat requires a huge amount of energy. Secondly, a big quantity of boxes will distract attention of attacking units and cover enemy defensive buildings allowing them to their work. Therefore, the best way is to attack directly the HQ not taking into account other buildings. Best suited for this are Zookas.
In the picture below, I’ve marked the main places which are important for attack.
Now, let me describe what mean all these notes and how to attack step by step.
1. Destroy 2 Sniper Towers marked with number “1” with the help of Barrage or Artillery. If not to destroy them – they will be attack your troops during landing and grouping.
2. Land your Zookas in the landing area that is marked with blue bar and number “5” and lead all of them using flare and smoke screens directly to the attack zone (green spot and number “4”). The best route is marked with blue dotted line.
3. With the help of Shock Bombs switch off all defensive buildings which are marked by numbers “2” and “3” and let your troops to destroy the base.
A video example of my successful attack:
In my case, in attack took part exactly 50 zookas of 13 lvl. But I want to pay your attention to the set of my statues, which are focused exclusively on the attack:
That’s all. Hope this post will help you to defeat the insidious Colonel Gearheart 45 and unlock Captain Everspark.
