While scrolling through my Instagram feeds I saw an ad about this free zombie-killing game called Last Shelter Survival (available in iOS and Android), and I instantly installed it. Little did I know that it was more than that, now I’m so engrossed in the game for more or less than 6 months to the point that I’m buying in-app purchases and even have a subscription monthly.
So a little intro, my username in the game is ***JennyBeans*** (yes with the asterisks. I used to be ReginaLocksley but I changed it). My currently level 19 base, wherein I think I will stay as is for a while since upgrading is expensive, is with CAN (Canadian Honor Guard) Alliance in State 40. The States grow really fast that the latest as of this writing is State 137 if I’m not mistaken.
The game is 20% zombie killing, 60% combat/war game, 20% farming. Lets start with the combat.
In every siege (either attacking a zombie or an enemy’s base), you need troops/soldiers, and their leaders are referred to as heroes. Together as a team, they are called armored personnel carrier or APC, an armored vehicle (usually equipped with caterpillar treads) that is used to transport infantry. For them to be stronger, more efficient and effective, your heroes and troops should be matched. Once you are able to mix and match the heroes skills with the troops, there will be more chances of winning the battle/s.
First, know how to position your soldiers. It should be Fighters (1st line) – Vehicles (2nd) – and Shooters. For the heroes, see the table below (listed are the common ones only. If you’re using a smartphone, this post is best viewed in landscape mode):
|Orange Heroes||Combat Skill||Effective Range||Troops to Lead||Remarks|
|Destroya||Artillery Barrage||2||Any||Due to the skill’s effective range, it is best for him to lead Fighters or Vehicles.|
|Fire At Will||2|
|Reaper||Descend||2||Any||Due to the skill’s effective range, it is best for him to lead Fighters or Vehicles.|
|Reap||5||Due to the skill’s effective range, it is best for him to lead Shooters|
|Shoota Man: Mohauuk||Spray n Pray||4||Any||Skill is best in leading Shooters|
|Rain of Fire||5|
|Bart the Professional||Precision Shot||4||Shooters||Position hero with Shooters in 3rd line|
|The Forsaken One||Rend||2||Any||Due to the skill’s effective range, it is best for him to lead Fighters or Vehicles.|
|Sergei The Arsenal||Ambush||3||Any||Due to the skill’s effective range, it is best for him to lead Fighters or Vehicles.|
|Dawn Guardian: An’Nuo||Pulse Canon||5||Any||Skill is best in leading Shooters|
|Adande the War Hound||Open Fire||3||Any||Due to the skill’s effective range, it is preferred that he leads Vehicles.|
|Dragon’s Rage: Danny||Dragon’s Breath||5||Fighters||This hero is a bit tricky. If you’re going to use him, put Fighter troops in the 3rd line of your APC where Shooters normally are.
He would also be more effective if you’re having an all-Fighter APC. He should still be placed in the 2nd – 3rd line due to his skills’ effective range.
|War Boss: Chuck||Death Metal||4||Vehicles||Same as Danny (above). It is recommended to use this hero if you’re having an all-Vehicle APC. He should still be placed in the 2nd to 3rd line due to his skills’ effective range.|
|The Falcon: Khalid||The Revenge||2||Vehicles||Position hero with Shooters in the 2nd line|
|Flame of Vengence||2|
|Uqbah The Courageous||The Conqueror||2||Fighters||Position hero with Fighters in the 1st line|
This list is not done yet. I have friends helping me out collate these info since I haven’t personally gotten all the heroes above.
LSS related post part 2 will include other Orange Heroes along with the purples and some of the blues and greens.
Ciao for now 🙂
