    Hello commander, a Firehawk or Vertigo bomber? Those Units have limited ammo, so if they spend it on buildings in thir way to the CY, they might not have enough left in the end.

    Vertigo. I mean that this bomber spend x100 more then needed ammo on this buildings with 1% of durability, and almost out of ammo after 3 "small" buildings with this 1%, what looks like bug, because other units dont have problems in this situation.

    I'll have to look into this in more detail, but from experience, Vertigos generally attack 4 targets with one shot regardless, the idea being that they got 4 payloads to drop. So this might as well be as they are designed.

    For example, if I have one 65 lvl Vendigo and attack lvl 1 base with 8 buildings in line, I get only 4 buildings?

    Isn't the payload split between multiple buildings like 5 or more? I have not seen such and I don't know how the Vert's supposed to react, but I think there's a way to circumvent a vertigo from not being able to hit the target.

    Players normally 'stack' vertigoes on top of each other, like 2 vertigoes on the same column, both on 3rd and 4th row. This is how one manages to 1 shot bases like these. Vertigo behaves weirdly compared to Hawks, I would like to see a forums post where every unit is explained in detail and what players can use them for.
    Also is it wrong to use militants early game to take care of scoopers and scrap-bus? Another Noob mistake I had way before is trying to have a Pit-bull destroy an MG nest; turns out they're infantry, thanks to the arsenal page.

    I have 14/14 units types in attack group, so I have space only for one Vendigo :) Vendigo have small durability, so I can use him only in last wave, when I finish (or almost finish) with destroying AA.
  • Only 1 vertigo? I use two when raiding bases, and 4 when hunting camps/outposts... Normally I have them disabled and the rest of my army is dealing with the defense. Once I get an opening on either the CY or DF, I attack it with 2 verts... Sometimes it may be too deep so be sure you have anti-structure units on the 3rd and 4th lanes so they can at least damage the CY... Sometimes Verts are the answer to a particular layout. Once I attacked a base using 8 Fire-hawks and 1 Pit-bull. I used the Pit-bull to lure the anti-vehicles and had the hawks clear the base. There was little to no anti-air, I think there was only one and it is being blocked from reaching the Fire-hawks.

    Usually I win in 1 attack, so no place for second Vertigo :) And my bases do not placed close, so I cant launch combined attacks.
  • What are your other units? You can always use other anti-structure units to finish the base. If the defense is already destroyed, you can send an army that's focused on destroying the CY.

    After destroying 5 of his bases, I change loadout to this imgur.com/a/WRMfrv3 , not upgraded Avatar die with low DPS, not upgraded Venoms also dont really helps, so I removed them. Never used Vertigo in this battles, because I dont need to destroy all higher level AA defences (limited repair time), but I keep him :)
