Island War Game Guide: Tips, Cheats & Strategies⇓

In this Island War: Raid guide, you will learn how to play the Island War: Raid game, about the best troops, the troop tier list, heroes, building the formation, base, and much more. So, let’s not waste any time and get to the main content: Island War game guide, tips & tricks: –

Get Started With The Island War Raid Game Basics⇓

(1) PvP: Island War is mainly a PvP raid game where players build the base, raid, and loot the resources. In the top-left corner of the game screen, tap the menu button -> battle log -> the battle log shows the list of players who have raided your base and the results; win or defeat – so if you see your resources/wood, trophies, and coins lower, it could be because your base was raided by other players. On the same battle log screen, you will see the revenge option that allows you to revenge the intruder. 

(2) PvE: There are some PvE events in the game like Legion Conquerer that you get to play every day for a certain number of times. The PvE events also offer quality rewards such as gems, gold, and wood. 

(3) Battle: To get the victories, you must destroy the city hall on the enemy base. And it would not be easy; enemy territories would be guarded by the troops. If they wipe your whole army out before you destroy the city hall, you will get defeated and lose the trophies. Although, it’s possible to loot some resources even if you lose the battle. 

(4) Base: All the players in the Island War Raid game get their base on Island; the main building facility there is a city hall that must be protected well. You can cover it with the walls and enclose it with the troops. Enemies can raid from any side of the base; so make sure to cover/guard it well with the troops/walls and the defensive facilities such as archer tower, mortar, cannon, and bomb. 

In the beginning, you already have three facilities on the island; a city hall, a gold mine, and an army camp. You can upgrade these facilities and get more privileges. For instance, the city hall upgrade unlocks a new boat so that you can take more troops on the raid, upgrading the gold mine increases the gem/gold production rate, and the army camp upgrade will increase the merge cap. 

So this would be all in ths Island War: Raid game basics. 

Island War Raid Game Guide To Troops⇓

(1) Rarity: In the Island War Raid game, the troops are available in four rarities; common rarity, rare rarity, epic rarity, and legendary rarity. Higher grade troops are hard to get; legendary > epic > rare, and common. 

(2) Getting Troops: you can get the troops by spending the gold coins and the diamonds. On the home screen of the Island War Raid game, tap the troop card button on the bottom-right corner -> you will get a random troop(among the ones that you have unlocked so far). Or, navigate to the shop menu tab of the game -> under the troops recruit section, you can spend the coins on standard recruit that features common, rare, and epic rarity troops. And the premium recruit that costs x200 diamonds for x1 draw and x1.8K diamonds for x10 draws. The premium recruit banner features rare, epic, and legendary troops. 

(3) Unlocking New Troops: you can unlock new troops by climbing up in the arena rankings(get victories by playing the game; each victory will grant you trophies); 

  • Arena 1: Archers, Spearman, Bomber, and Arctic Wolves
  • x150 Trophies Arena 2: Giant, Fire Mage, Berserker, and Heal Wizard
  • x400 Trophies Arena 3: Snowman, Halberdier, Brawler, and Mace Warrior
  • x700 Trophies Arena 4: Dwarf Warrior, Spear Thrower, Frost Archer, and Hulking Hurler
  • x1000 Trophies Arena 5: Templar, Nun, Hunting Gunner, Shadow Assassin
  • x1500 Trophies Arena 6: Airbender, Crossbowman
  • x2000 Trophies Arena 7: Frost Titan

(4) Leveling Troops: combine two same-star level troops to gain the next star-level troops. For instance, 3-star level Airbender + 3-Star level Airbender gives you a 4-star level Airbender. Level up the troops in the Island War Raid game to raise their stats and potential.

Tap on the built facility to get the upgrade option. Enclose the city hall and the mine facility well with troops and the wall. Place troops in all the direction as the enemies can deploy the troops from any direction. 

Participate In The Events⇓

Events offer great rewards, but they don’t last for long and you can attempt a few of them only a certain times a day. 

Currencies Guide In Island War Raid Game⇓

  • Gold Coins; obtain from the gold mine at the base(it gives you idle reward), or from the events and raid battles. Spend the gold coins to recruit the troops, make upgrades to the base facilities
  • Gems: obtain the gems from the gold mine at the base, or from the events and ranking and battle pass reward. Spend the gems to recruit the troops in the shop, play the card master game that offers a discount on purchases, or exchange for the gold coins

  1. As a veteran player, this guide is sh*t. Many many red flags that the creator is no more of a novice than any other newb.

    I have written various guides for my clan for the beginner/intermediate. If you want genuine help join the IW discord server, and ask there. Loads of experience players including myself are more than happy to help. If you follow this advice, you will waste your precious gems and medals.

    • I’ve learned real strategies and tips from Nic and others in the Discord server. The only other thing I’d add is join a clan in an association. They have their own servers on Discord where team mates can share media to illustrate the stats and tips. Most Assoc’s have their top clans and lower power clan where you can growinto the top clans.

  2. Hi , how should I remove bomb in my base ?
    I have 3 of them so unhappy
    Why I couldn’t change bomb with my the other troops .
    Please help ?

  3. Could you please update your information? I just started playing the game and there is no longer teiple reward (double coins only) and there are axe throwers, drakes, and other warriors that are ot listed on your ranking tier list. Thank you!

  4. Wrong about Battle victory conditions. You must destroy all three facilities (camp, hall, gold mine). You then win regardless of troop conditions on island.

      • The only thing sucks about the game is that you can scroll through the people you want to attack when you have high number of woods and a low number of defense. So my best offense is the best defense. Have your defense very strong so people can’t attack you while you’re trying to gather wood and build it up to create your army camp level higher.
