Strategy
Toads will self-destruct with their Time Bomb ability, causing 12 damage to a single target and 3 damage to surrounding units in a 3x3 square.

Description

This Tier 1 unit is able to explode on contact with enemies and can deal huge damage to the main target, but also does additional damage to units in the tiles near it. This effect doesn't auto-trigger when toad dies.

Strategy

  • Toads can deal great damage to low-tier units and easily kill multiple enemies at once.
  • Any low-tier units should stay away from the toads and the army should try to take out the toads before they can harm the smaller units.
  • Counter: Use larger units to tank.
  • The most effective way to use a toad is to move-only them into a group of enemies, and then let them attack. This will make full effect of their splash damage, and possibly let you save some toads for later.

Trivia

  • In Pre-Alpha 14, the toad could attack flying units, while in Pre-Alpha 15, this was removed again.
  • In Pre-Alpha 5, the explosion on death was removed.
  • Pre-Alpha 6, the toad could attack and damage Barbed Wire, but this was removed in Pre-Alpha 11, while changes came for hp and dmg.
