Mobile Strike Advanced Traps

© Epic War LLC

Today Epic War has released Advanced Traps in Mobile Strike, a brand new set of wall traps! Advanced Traps are highly specialized and are very strong against one troop type, but weak against all other troops (including artillery). Regular wall traps are only weak against Artillery.

Like regular traps, they come in four different tiers of increasing strength. Each advanced trap requires the equivalent normal trap to be unlocked first, before you can research the advanced version.

Advanced Traps

The list below shows all of the new traps and their strengths and weaknesses:-

Tier 1

  • Barriers – No strengths. Weak Vs Artillery.
  • Laser Fence – Strong Vs. Infantry. Weak Vs. Artillery, Tactical and Armored Vehicles.
  • IED Explosive – Strong Vs. Tactical. Weak Vs. Artillery, Infantry, Armored Vehicles.
  • EMP Barrier – Strong Vs. Armored Vehicles. Weak Vs. Artillery, Tactical, Infantry.

Tier 2

  • Mounted Gun – Strong Vs. Infantry. Weak Vs. Artillery, Tactical and Armored Vehicles.
  • Spider Mine – Strong Vs. Tactical. Weak Vs. Artillery, Infantry, Armored Vehicles.
  • Missile Turret – Strong Vs. Armored Vehicles. Weak Vs. Artillery, Tactical, Infantry.

Tier 3

  • IR Gun Turret – Strong Vs. Infantry. Weak Vs. Artillery, Tactical and Armored Vehicles.
  • Laser Cannon – Strong Vs. Tactical. Weak Vs. Artillery, Infantry, Armored Vehicles.
  • IR Missile Turret – Strong Vs. Armored Vehicles. Weak Vs. Artillery, Tactical, Infantry.

Tier 4

  • Defense Drone – Strong Vs. Infantry. Weak Vs. Artillery, Tactical and Armored Vehicles.
  • Satellite System – Strong Vs. Tactical. Weak Vs. Artillery, Infantry, Armored Vehicles.
  • AA Cannon – Strong Vs. Armored Vehicles. Weak Vs. Artillery, Tactical, Infantry.

Normal Traps Vs Advanced Traps

Barriers are the entry level advanced traps, comparable to sand bags. They do exactly the same damage and have the same defense. The only difference is they use the advanced trap boosts, whereas sandbags use the normal trap boosts.

For all other tiers the advanced version is always stronger than the normal version. Even taking into account their increased weakness to other troops, overall the extra damage means they will always outperform regular traps.

The reason for this is similar to the reason it is normally better to attack with a single troop type, than a balanced army. That’s because stacking single attack stats usually wins over a lower defense/attack boost across the board.

You should therefore always build the advanced trap version (once unlocked). Try to concentrate on the advanced wall traps that you have the highest boosts for.

Note: Whilst advanced traps are better than regular traps, the benefit is not high enough to start destroying your old traps to make room for advanced. Wait until your regular traps have been destroyed, before replacing.

Also remember that until you have maxed out Advanced Trap Attack and Advanced Trap Defense research, your regular wall traps will probably be stronger.

Summary

Advanced traps are a nice addition to Mobile Strike and are particularly useful in trap accounts. However, in the later game traps become less useful, due to the limit on the number you can build.

Advanced troops have also been released. Details can be found here.

  1. How do I get the advanced trap restricted files? I can’t build T3 traps cause I don’t have any.

  2. Does the commander research tree, commander skill tree and combat tree traps researches apply to advanced traps as well? I levelled up trap attack under commander skill tree and the figures for advanced traps did not increase
