Over the past few months I’ve noticed a lot of the same Mobile Strike questions popping up in our comments section, social media accounts and via e-mail.
This FAQ answers to the most frequently asked questions appearing on our site. So in no particular order:-
1. How do I form an alliance, I can’t see the option?
The reason the alliance formation button is not there, is probably because you are already in an alliance. You need to drop out of your alliance and then click on the alliance button at the bottom of the screen. The first tab labeled “create” will let you choose your alliance name, tag and symbol. Click done and your alliance will be formed.
2. I’ve read your base layout guide, but I can’t get anywhere near enough food to support a moderate sized army. What gives?
Chances are your food production boost is no where near high enough. For example I’m currently building a level 15 trap account, which for ease of play I have a pure food setup. I have 21 level 15 farms and a 991% boost to food production. This gives me an hourly income of 1,373,000 food, enough to support over 450,000 T3 troops without going into negative food production.
To get close to 1,000% boost I have the commander skill food production III maxed (still leaving you enough points to max troop training I & II), a 25% food boost active 24/7 and around 250% food boost from some very low quality equipment I manufactured.
3. I’ve heard there is no point in going for a pure food setup, because ultimately I will have too many troops to support.
Yes and no. At some point in the very end game this may be true, but at this point you can just switch to another resource build. The reason food works best for most players, is because it means you can be completely self reliant whilst leveling.
Trying to build, research and train with negative food production, without the support of alliance members or farm accounts, is a pain in the ass whilst you are leveling. For this reason I still recommend food, over and above the other resources whilst you are leveling.
4. I linked my game to the wrong Facebook account. How do I change it?
Okay this is a bit hit n’ miss and may or may not work. There appears to be various bugs linking Mobile Strike to Facebook. The method which some claim has worked is as follows:-
- Load up Facebook and click on Settings > Apps. Delete the Mobile Strike App.
- Log out of the Facebook app on your device and then login to the FB account you want to link to Mobile Strike.
- Completely exit Mobile Strike App from your device (so the loading screen appears on start up).
- Click on your Gold Mine and try to link to the new Facebook account.
If you try this and get “The current game is already linked to another Facebook account. Please log in with the correct Facebook account”, then the only other way is to contact support.
Support may be able to help you depending on who ends up dealing with your query.
5. How do I get rid of troops or traps?
For troops, click on your barrack and then select the troop type you want to destroy. Then click on the “stats” button. At the bottom of the screen you should see a “dismiss” button with a slider. Simply drag the slider and dismiss the number of troops you want to get rid of.
For traps you do exactly the same. Simply select the trap type in your wall and click on their “stats”. You then have the option to destroy as many traps as you want.
6. Why do I only get offered $99 packs?
The trick to purchasing packs is to understand that once you buy a certain priced pack, you will never be offered a cheaper one (okay maybe on very rare occasions).
Example: you buy a $5 pack, then a few days later you buy a $20. You will never be offered a $5 again.
However, if you buy a $5 pack and then wait a week or so, chances are you will be offered another $5 pack to get you spending again.
Now this doesn’t work indefinitely, but in the past I have managed to get 4-5 $5 packs, before moving up to the $20 packs and repeating. The key is to have patience and wait for those cheap packs to appear. The length of time you have to wait does appear to be quite random.
Unfortunately if you have already purchased a $99 pack, chances are that’s all you will be offered. It’s still worth remembering for alt accounts.
7. Is Full Auto Mode worth it and how do I unlock it?
Yes. Full auto mode allows you to spend 50,000 ammo per hit, but the rewards are around 11 times more than standard mode. Therefore you will get on average 10% more rewards with full auto. The chest reward at the end of each stage offers you multiple chests, in a mini game a bit like mine sweeper.
Finally, every day you are offered a free ammo round. With full auto mode this is the equivalent of receiving 50k free ammo every day, compared to 5k on normal mode (thanks maztadont for pointing this out).
More importantly, the points you score in challenges are usually significantly more in full auto mode, compared to standard mode.
You unlock full auto mode by purchasing special gold packs. Once it’s unlocked you keep full auto mode permanently and can switch between normal/full auto whenever you want. Whilst it is usually only available in the most expensive packs, it is offered in some of the cheaper packs every now and then. Sometimes it even turns up in the $5 packs, so keep a look out!
8. How do you use “Building Move” items?
Click on “More” in the bottom right hand corner of the screen and then hit “Building Swap”.
9. How do I move to a Protected State?
If you are past Headquarters level 5 you can’t move to a protected state. As as all states are currently protected, that means you are stuck! No amount of begging, or pleading with support will ever let you move state after HQ5. Your only option is to start a new game.
10. Why the hell do I only get Screwdrivers, Multi tools and other materials related to Economy Gear ?
It seems since the Economy Gear was released, the materials needed to manufacture economy equipment are dropping like crazy from all resource tiles. This is making it harder to get the standard materials needed to build most of the normal gear.
I can confirm that the standard materials are still dropping from resource tiles, just a lot less than before. I suggest using Daily and Alliance Chances to try and get standard materials from missions, rather than resource tiles, until this is fixed.
