BOOM BEACH MARCH 2018 PATCH NOTES!
 
 Welcome Commanders, to the March Update for Boom Beach!
 
 Here is a full list of what you’ll be able to find in this update…
 
 THE MEGA CRAB RETURNS… EVERY MONTH!
 
 With this update comes a monthly Mega Crab into the monthly event schedule for Boom Beach.
 
 What is the Mega Crab? The Mega Crab is one of Dr. T’s most dastardly superweapons, a crustacean hellbent on deconstruction! It is the ultimate test of a Commander’s skill, and a great chance to earn a boatload of extra resources! Formed of seemingly endless stages, players will battle for the top spot on the leaderboard against increasingly difficult defense layouts!
 
 Each monthly Mega Crab will be a unique event, each with unique stage bonuses. Information about each Mega Crab will be available before it starts!
 
 Players can earn one of four UNIQUE trophy Decorations per Mega Crab. Awarded by the hardest trophy to gain will be the Diamond trophy (followed by Gold, Iron, and Stone). Owners of this trophy will truly show their experience as the ultimate Boom Beach Commander!
 
 As each Mega Crab will have unique trophies, once the Mega Crab is gone, the chance of earning those unique trophies are as well!
 
 NEW PROTO DEFENSES & CHANGES TO THE WEAPON LAB!
 
 Something’s stirring in the Weapon Lab… five new Proto Defenses have been added!
 
 They won’t all be immediately available however - the Weapon Lab has been updated to have a rotation of six different Prototype Defenses available to players every week!
 
 Below are the details of the first two that will be available:
 

 S.I.M.O.
 A Heavy with a vengeance… Betrayed by a medic on the battlefield and left with one eye, S.I.M.O. seeks out those weakest on the Battlefield.
 

 Targets low health enemies within range. Can see through smoke with the help of Infrared sensors.
 

 Sky Shield
 

 The latest in Prototype technology, this handy building sets up an impenetrable shield against Gunboat Abilities! Until it gets blown up...
 

 Sets up a defensive shield around itself, protecting all buildings under the shield from Gunboat projectiles. The shield dissipates if the generator is destroyed.
 
 NEW TRIBE BONUSES!
 
 There are now a grand total of thirteen Tribe Bonuses that will be added to the Tribes, for even more mayhem. The below boosts can (and will!) be applied to specific Troop types so expect to see some potentially explosive pairings in the future. Warriors with flame damage? Yes please!
 
 

 
  • Gunboat Energy gained from building destruction
  • Troop speed
  • Building attack speed
