Ready to destroy bad guys on the ground? Let’s get started with our Drone: Shadow Strike tips and tricks guide!
1. Complete the challenges!
Each levels has a number of optional challenges for you to do besides the main objective. These challenges reward you with a nice amount of cash, sometimes even gold – the game’s premium currency – which is great! Some of them require you to finish the level within a certain time limit, some require you kill enemies with a specific weapon, and so forth. Be sure to check to them before you go into the level, but remember that you can also check them at any time during the level by tapping them at the top left.
2. Bring the right weapon for the job!
There are different types of weapons, but the ones you’ll be using for a while are your cannons and missiles. Cannons are split into two different types: cannon and heavy cannon. Regular cannons act like machine guns: rapid fire, but pretty weak. Heavy cannon bullets travel slower but deal more damage. Also to note are each cannon’s bullet type: anti-infantry and anti-vehicle. If you’re going into a zone with a lot of infantry, obviously bring the anti-infantry cannon!
There are also multi-purpose cannons that deal an equal amount of damage to everything, but never excels past the specialized cannons. All of this also applies to missiles, as they come in two flavors: anti-vehicle and anti-tank. Vehicles are classified as the lightweight speedy vehicles, such as jeeps. Tanks are, well, tanks! Bringing the right weapon types is key for beating some of the levels within a certain amount of time.
3. Watch out for rockets!
The main way enemies will be able to deal damage to you are through rockets. RPG soldiers will be marked with a high priority target market, which is a blinking red box that is more accented than the regular red target boxes. Take these guys out as fast as you can so you can save your flares for an emergency. The best way to do this is to upgrade your drone’s Radar functionality, which increases the range of your map alerts. You see those icons that surround the border of your screen? Those are the map alerts, and when you have an upgraded radar, it’s easier to see where the RPG soldiers are.
4. Switch between weapons for maximum firepower!
Get into the habit of switching between your weapons on the fly. You shouldn’t ever let one of your weapons reach maximum load, because that means you’re not switching enough! Fire everything you’ve got! If one gun runs out, immediately switch to another; don’t wait for it to reload.
5. Stay on the move to take out targets swiftly!
There’s a combo system in the game. If you kill another enemy within a couple seconds from another kill, you’ll get a combo bonus. You can keep the chain going by destroying as much as you can as fast as you can. You’re rewarded with a lot of points, which means more cash at the end of the level! Some levels even have challenges where you need to get a combo up to a certain amount, so practice scanning around for enemies. Upgrading your drone’s radar helps a lot too, as mentioned above.
