Woodland Heroes is a Facebook game developed by Row Sham Bow that lets you engage in strategic, turn-based combat as you control an army of raccoons battling the evil bears. Here below provide you with a quick start guide, tips and tricks, hints and cheats to help you in the battles of the Woodland Heroes.
By scrolling your mouse over a location, you can see how many weapons you can take into that battle. When a location is still occupied, the enemy will have the same amount of weapons as the maximum number of weapons you can have. When a location was saved before but was retaken, it usually has only one weapon.
Tip: Before storming into a location with just any combination of weapons, you can also decide to do some recon first. Move just one pea slinger to the location and start the battle, to see which weapons the enemy will use. While the place on the battlefield changes between battles, the enemy will always use the same weapons in a battle. The types of weapons will only change once an enemy has been defeated in that location.
Woodland Heroes has a lot of different weapons to offer, for a wide range of prices. However, the amount of resources needed to build one is not the only thing that decides which weapon is your best choice. These are the two main considerations when choosing a weapon:
If you see a weapon that has a circle with a number under it, it means that after placing the weapon's shot type, you can shoot one or more extra single block-shots.
Quickly finding where your enemy's weapons are located is a good strategy. The longer it takes you to destroy the enemy's weapons, the more chance the enemy has to destroy your weapons. Rather than trying to find the complete outline of a weapon right away, try to sweep the battlefield as fast as possible, and eliminate which grid squares are empty.
In the example below, you can see how you can pinpoint on which positions on a battlefield at least one part of a four-block footprint weapon is located. That way, once you've found it, you can start to uncover the rest of the weapon.
In case you've hit more than one weapon, one way to figure out which weapon is where is by looking at the weapon's strength on the side bar. In the example below, we see part of a weapon with one damaged block, and part of a weapon with two damaged blocks. The weapon graph shows that the muck wheel has only 3/5 blocks left, so the two damaged blocks must be part of the muck wheel. The single damaged block is thus part of the swine slinger.
To give you an idea of how to apply battle tactics to more advanced situations, here is an example of a battle.
