How to Mod

(Please note: Modding advice is correct at the time of writing this)

As the Hammerhead set is a Defensive based set you want to Mod it accordingly. How you Mod it depends on your Troop Count. If your Troop Count is Low you want to Mod it for Troop Health, if your Troop Count is High you want to Mod it for Troop Defense.

A “low” Troop Count would be anything sub 50 million Troops as a rough guide. after this point Defense starts becoming more important.

For a “low” Troop count

The Halloween Troop Health Mod set is the ideal way to Mod. The Troop Health Mod set would be a secondary option. If you don’t have the required Mod set research complete then an example ideal way to Mod for pure Troop Health would be:

  • Health Mod – 25% Troop Health
  • Stimpack Mod – 25% Troop Health
  • Sinister Mod – 25% Troop Health
  • Toxic Mod (special) – 25% Troop Health

If you need more Troop Attack to kill the attacking march switch out for TroopAttack/Troop Health combination Mods such as the Poison Mod or the Sabotage Mod.

For a “High” Troop Count

The Halloween Troop Defense Mod set is the ideal way to Mod. The Troop Defense Mod set would be a secondary option. If you don’t have the required Mod set research complete then an example way to Mod for pure Troop Defense would be:

  • Defense Mod -25% Troop Defense
  • Tombstone Mod – 25% Troop Defense
  • Eclipse Mod – 25% Troop Defense
  • Sentinel Mod (special) – 25% Troop Defense

If your army size is in between “low” and “high” (between 50-100 million as a rough guide) you might want to add a few Troop Defense/Troop Health combination Mods in which case you could substitute in Mods such as Frost Mod or the Acid Mod.

 

Thoughts on the Gear

This Gear set is currently the Strongest pure Troop Defense gear in Mobile Strike. It is Gear set that everyone should look to acquire and should be worn when offline to reduce the risk of getting zeroed if your shield drops.

The set has good Troop Attack which makes it ideal to wear when being rallied by other players as the Troop Attack will help to kill the march and hence give you a chance at capturing the attacking Commander.

This set has been enhanced from when it was initially released with the introduction of first the Halloween Upkeep helm and Halloween Accessories and recently the Blackout Black Friday Accessories. The upkeep helm means you are able to wear this set combined with a 50% upkeep reduction item to always remain positive with troop upkeep which allows you to hold food in your base.
