Backyard Monsters, as stated in my review, is one of the coolest and most complex Facebook games at the moment. However, mastering the game takes a lot of time and dedication and you’ll need a perfect strategy in order to be competitive in the game. In this article, I am going to share with you a bunch of Backyard Monsters Tips and Tricks in what can be considered and early strategy guide for the game.

Backyard Monsters Basics:

– Try logging in at least twice per day during the first days of playing in order to quickly build up your base. You need, while in protection, to upgrade the resource gatherers fast and build two silos
– Your second focus should be on upgrading your towers. You need strong towers to defend against players once you’re out of protection!
– Do NOT collect the quest rewards unless you REALLY need the resources. You might find them extremely valuable if you can afford to save them for later.
– But do remember to collect all your resources and bank them in time!
– When close to getting out of protection, try to get the best out of the environment (the mushrooms) and strategically place the buildings around. The more time it takes for enemy monsters to get to your buildings, the better.
– For starters, using Octo-ooze and Pokeys to attack is the best since they are cheap, easy to produce and they can do quite some damage. I found Finks to be quite useless during the early stages, and so are Eye-ras if there are no walls.
– You should use all the walls you can in order to protect your base!

How to get more resources faster in Backyard Monsters?

Obviously, by attacking players! Early on, you should attack in waves with Octo-ooze and Pokey monsters to destroy the towers and resource silos. You might also wish to use Bolts with Octo-ooze if the other player has strategically placed the silos and resourcers in the middle.

Later on, you should adopt the same strategy using waves of Ichi and Brain and when possible, create huge armies of Crabtron to attack other players. This way you will loot tons of resources easily!

How to build a perfect base in Backyard Monsters?

One of the biggest problems players are facing in the game is that of the base building: how to place the buildings in such a way that your resources are safe? Unfortunately, there’s no golden rule of thumb to follow since the environment can work in or against your favor, but here’s how I’ve set up my base after a few tries and found it to work best against attackers:

– I have high level building of each resource gatherer, except for the goo, of which I have two. I also have one silo, two monster hatcheries and two monster housings. These are placed in the middle and protected always, while other buildings are used to distract the attackers.
– The other buildings are: low level resource gatherers, town hall and all the other buildings you can create. These, alongside walls and defense towers are surrounding the protected buildings and are the first to get attacked. The base should be as close to a square as possible!
– Why is this a good strategy? Because you won’t lose too many resources, since most of them are in the middle and you might just get into Damage Protection if the attackers destroy your outside buildings at first!

Don’t forget to add your comments with your own strategy tips for the game and also don’t forget to share the article with your friends & on Facebook in order to help as many people as possible!


  1. I think buildings like the Map Room, Flinger, Yard Planner, Monster Lockers, and Monster Hatcheries are not needed. If you can sustain heavy attack from high-level monsters, then there is no reason to fight other players. It would be much quicker to try building up your defences and resources, and once you have it all, make the biggest army. That’s what I’m doing

    • attacking is really important. u can gather alot of extra resources by farming other peoples yards. attack as much as possible.

  2. I am a seasoned strategy gamer so the basis of this game is simple, upgrade the town hall as fast as you can, better underprotection, dont attack until your time is up. Secondly build as many silos and resource gathers the town hall allows. The highter the town hall upgrade the more defences you can build. I put the silos and resource gathers around the town hall then surrounded them with the turrents then put a stone wall around then the none essential buildings I put around those with wooden walls. I find its best to start upgrading 12hr buildings during the night and whilst your playing upgrade the 5min, 15min buildings etc… When attacking use the octo-ooze or Ichi first you can possibly have three or four attacks so two waves of tower attacks first then sweep in with silo and resource gathers next.

    • Good post, solid strategy. But waiting the whole-what‽ week‽ before going on the offensive? The animation is cute but…I’m tired of farmville. Turn ’em loose on some tower!

      You can raise a fairly deadly army if you spend just a bit (1/3) on building monster production (fine, 3/4 should be sent on that long march to max production). Focus on twigs and pebbles and then goo, ya know- for troops.

      My point is that there’s a window when you can launch a serious wave of pokey on some guy who couldn’t wait that long either– he too had to pick a fight, probably before he was sure of where to put his 2nd sniper tower. Don’t be that guy. Be the guy (or gal) that walks off with all his shiny bought resources.

      Last thought; no gun should be working alone. Overlapping Fields of Fire and gun upgrades keep your walls spatter free.

    • Good strategy, but its better 2 have 3 or 4 of high level resource gatherers than 2 have 6 low leveled ones, less high leveled ones are easy 2 protect. And 4 me BANDITO is the best monster, its economical + u can create a vast army because it only consumes 20housing spaces, even if u unlock D.A.V.E. you can only build around 10 monsters. Do the math & choose the monster you going to focus on (accumulated health & damage). thanks, let me know if this strategy works.

  3. the way i set mine up is wall in the hatcherys,locker, flinger, maproom, and monster housing. wall those in so that you dont have to worry asmuch about towers, because people wont waste there time on them considering they wont get many resources from them, and dont feel like wasting time breaking down a wall anjd risking possible mines. second, build four of each resource building, and group each four in a square on each iside of your town hall, toped with a storage silo for all 4(lvl 4 town hall needed) than, place small groups of 2-4 towers, trry to mix it up, like for a group of two have 1 snipe one cannon, etc. place those around the resource building and town hall, that way, no matter where the monsters are, they will be under constant fire by your towers. do not buiuld a wall around that structer or group of buildings, because it will b destroyed and b a waste of resources. i dont use walls much, because it takes my finks a total of 3 seconds to tear through 2 layers of wood black, or 1 layer of metal. also, i suggest upgrading your town hall to the max, that way everything else is easy and you know your max limit that way you can stay organized, and keep everything looking neat and opperational. when attacking, dont mix up monsters to much. i would say, become dependent on one monster. i have destoyed lvl 35 bases with an army of finks(25) and im lvl 24. another hint, if you attack someone, attack them good, make sure they r scared to retaliate, cause if they arnt they will eat you alive. thats all i got,email me and if you want any more hints, or you have any ideas 0on how you can improve my method

  4. well basically what i did is wall in my silos and town hall surrounded by 3 layer of stone and wood walls because they hold all ur resources like the 1,000,000`s so then my resources have a sniper tower in middle lvl 5 and then 3 wall is surrounded by 5 sniper towers and 6 splash then i put remaining building in corner an put traps around my resource makers it works GREAT so far i havent lost any major amounts of resources so ya lol

  5. base should be like circle or triangle… triangular base should have one corner blocked with stone walls, there u put silos, resource gatherers and HQ. with wooden walls try blocking 2 sides of triangle so there is only 1 open. build splash towers at ends of wooden walls and few blocks inside sniper ones (be sure that u place 2-3 bobby traps in front of each sniper, so if monsters destroy your splash towers, they will go for your sniper in groups and they wont make it to tower). and use other buildings as defense too… that’s best tactic i know so far

  6. when attacking (for Low Level Players)

    we often use ICHI,


    A high damage monster whose specialty is attacking resources

    ICHI will attract the attention of defensive towers since, it has a high health it will take a lot of time eliminating them

    then the other monster can go and attack the resources without being damaged

    make some Eye-ra for destroying walls

    (but low level players usually have thin or incomplete walls)

  7. One good thing to do for ur army is get a lot of ihi and bandito and then just send bandito upwards the resources and about 10 of them dominate

  8. what are good ways to set up your base if you’re at a really REEEALLY low level? right now i have a town hall, 2 silos, general store, putty thing, goo thing, pebble thing, twig thing, monster locker, cannon, sniper, and lots of wooden boxes…i’m a level 12…please help :)) ty

    • DO NOT ever place your resources together. Always seperate them so monsters only attack one of them. Make your Snipers nearer to your town hall,( put it in the middle of the resources) and cannons nearer to the resources. (Your yard should look squarish.

  9. the best thing to do is to complete quests so u get lots of resorces and even if ur bank gets full quest resorces keep coming in so do that then u have the resorces to upgrade and build new things so u make a better base

  10. Here is a break down of how you should attack. First off, unless you have $500 dollars or more to spend every month it will take some time to become the alpha dog. So for anyone new take my advice, first build your resources up, along with your town hall. The higher level the town hall the higher you can upgrade everything. Get your town hall and resources to the highest level you can by day 4. By day four you want to start building defence towers. Place them thought out your backyard. On day 5 build your monster locker, hatchery, and monster house. Keep in mind you still need to upgrade resources, and town hall. Day 6, start unlocking monsters. Day 7, you should have atleast 4 of each resources and 4 silos. They should be atleast level 6 or 7. This should be easy to do because the first few levels you won’t have to wait long to finish the upgrading on. Here is one tip to upgrading without siting at your computer all day. When you click upgrade, see how long it takes to upgrade them item. Check the time and be back at your computer about 5 minutes before the upgrade is done. This way when you click the speed up button, it will be free to do so. Continue to do all of this till your protection is over. Also you will need a monster academy. This will upgrade your monsters. Trust me if you think your monsters are bad ass at level one, then upgrade them to level 3 and see how much stronger you become.

    Now let’s talk about how to attack. When facing anyone with a great yard set up try to remember what monsters do the most damage, and also can take just as much damage. If you attack low level yards use Ichi, and Fink. The best way to figure out how many of each to use, remember this once all defence towers are down Ichi will destroy everything so, if you have 5 hatcheries fill 4 with Ichi and 1 with Fink. This will overwelm most yards you face off with. People around the same level use Ichi or Crabatron to destroy defence towers, and use Banditc Fang, or the all powerful DAVE. Most people would use Project X and DAVE but Project X dies to easily. Crabatron is the best for defence towers, mixed with DAVE’s power you can put anyone into damage protection. I do recommend when going to the map you view the list form, not the map itself. When looking for a victum view their yard first. It they have been attack, and have no defence towers…don’t waste time just send out Pokey to finish them off. Beware you might get a visit for the one you attacked some time down the road. If that happens you can always ask for a truce. Don’t be scared to ask for one neither. Some times we run into someone much stronger than us, and a truce might calm things down again between you too. Also don’t make any of the following monsters, Bolt, Eye-ra, and Brain. They are worthless. The reason is both Bolt, and Brain won’t always finish off a silo or the resources before jumping to a new one, and Eye-ra just dies the minute it hits a wall. It’s a waste of goo.

    Keep in mind that you need to account for time in this game. One second you might have a good target and the next second they might be under attack. So when you go offline try making monsters so they are ready the next time you log in.

  11. Ahhh yes…
    Stradegy! I have not found any perfectly protected yards yet.

    Protecting Your Yard….
    I set my yard up with my Town Hall, Silos and Laser/ Tesla Guns in the center-surrounded by a perfectly squared wall. Next Layer I mixed up my Twig Snappers, Pebble Crushers, Sniper and Cannons with the remaining wooden blocks perfectly squared around them so that it all resembles a target. Next, I place my mines in areas that I find get attacked the most. I found these areas after paying attention to the blood detail.

    Attacking Other Yards…

    I hit the targeted yard with approxamately 3 quick Twig & Pebble Catapult attacks–NMot sending in my Ichis and Project X’s until the 3rd or 4th Attack to take out the remaining towers. After Most-if not all guns are gone-I send in a Large Wave of (Trained) Banditos and Finks. I found D.A.V.E. to be practically a waste of Goo and Spacve to do much good. But by mixing up certain monsters I.E. Ichi’s and Project X’s, I can Tear up just about any yard.

  12. Seriously, Matt? How would your base like to face against an unlimited number of pokeys? Defenses would crumble if they didn’t put up a limit. Unless they made stronger towers. Then they’d just spend 24 hours making Daves and attack bases that way.
    If you hate the CC so much, why are you still playing?

  13. what level are you guys ? my strategy is to put my best defences around more important things resources etc and put slightly worse protection on stuff that i can rebuild fast general store etc then i built a wall around my whole place and built lots of booby traps near weaker parts

  14. i need the bestest advice because everyone is attacking me until i’m under damage protection everyday and i can’t keep making truces and my base is as u told me but 1 after one attacks me

  15. Best attacking strategy i’ve found is to mass pokeys, it takes a couple minutes to fill your housings. at max level it only takes a little over 32k good to fill them. You can build 162 of them. if you knock out laser towers that may get in your way ahead of time you can level a base in just a few waves. just keep an eye out for cannon towers, while pokeys can still destroy them if they get caught while in a clump it will kill your entire army in a couple shots. I tried this out first just for fun and was shocked when i leveled the guys yard in my first attempt. i tried it on numerous other yards and found that it worked time after time. get millions of resources for the cost of 32k goo. it’s hillarious when they retaliate in rage and fling millions of resources at me send in their expensive armies and leave with less than they spent on the attack.

  16. sometimes BM has have to report it to forums found above while have to post ur user’s i.d. found below while playing

  17. Do not attack too many times. If u have a damage protector, don’t waste them. Gather your own resources first. If you attack someone, that someone will attack you back. Also, the most important buildings are firstly, resources gatherer, secondly, town hall, and lastly, silos. always protect them by other buildings. One last important note: Do not waste your Shiny. Only use them for hiring builder, or expanding your yard.

  18. Town hall in the middle, resources seperated to decrease the number of resources damaged, telsa and laser near town hall, sniper/cannons near resources, walls around them.

  19. im currently just lv 33. the best defences are to build your town hall in the middle, put walls around it, build ur lasers and testlas around the town hall walls and ur good lv 10 resources and silos, put ur gold blocks around those.

    then put all ur low lv resources and lv 4 cannons and snipers around ur gold walls and put up stone walls. this way the monster attacking will destroy all ur low lv’d stuff while going around ur gold walls and getting attacked by ur good stuff. then they’ll take a while to get through ur gold walls killing them all

  20. i have a lv3 town hall,3 lv1 hatchery,1 lv2 monster locker with pokey,octo-ooze,bolt,fink,eye ra unlocked,10 booby traps,2 of each resources,3 storage silo of 2 lv4 and 1 lv5,4 cannons,4 snipers,2 monster housing,1 catapult,1 map room,1 flinger,1 general store.Help me

  21. I am reading a lot of pretty good strategies, but lets get back to attacking. If your going to farm resources, and a lot, then be prepared to attack a few times in succession, but to a certain percentage for the 1st attack (less then 30% damage to their base), or your army will be wiped out and they will go into damage protection. What I mean by this is go attack with monsters that attack defensive towers. Octo ooz, ichi’s, Crabtron, etc. Take out the most destructive towers 1st (Lazer 1st, Telsa’s). Use launch twigs and pebbles at them 1st (if you can knock it out good, but if not do damage them. Spread your attack out, and do not launch all your tower cridders at once. Send a good portion, and if possible a couple of anything critters with them, Make sure you place the anything monster as close to the defensive towers as possible or the will take off where they will do other damage. after a good portion of towers are down, send out the remaining tower killing monsters. Watch the flinger time. If your running out and you thing that you can take all the towers down, and the rest of the base then go for it. If not, call off attack when you think your near 30% damage. Go home. Look into map again to see if they are in damage protection. If not build more tower killers, but a little less then before, get some anything killers, and wipe out the base. Remember send in portions at a time and spread the attack around. I am level 30, but I am trashing level 36’s and 37’s with this method. I have accumulated in one week close to 30,000,000 in resources from the same bases. If they dont change their base setup keep milking them. Remember their towers may get stronger, but use the same technique. Oh, the cannon towers do a lot more damage then the snipers so hit them if you can before snipers. Its all systematic. Your welcome

  22. Oh snap almost forgot to tell ya. If you knock down a section of building from the initial attack, you can actually fling monsters over the knocked out buildings. Brings your attack closer to your planned targets for the next attack and avoids falling on booby traps. Your welcome for that too.

  23. Geeze another bit of info. GET ICHI’s, get the academy and train them at high as you can. Still only takes 40 spaces in housing but has pretty good heath at 2200 and 70 damage. I have crabtrons, but I only house at most 10 – 12 for initial attacks. I add them if I need a boost towards a tower. Ichi’s Ichi’s Ichi’s.

  24. How to stop them from attacking you!?
    #1. Build up your defenses (level-it-up!).
    #2. Arrange your yard in a strategic manner! a tandem of ST and CT will do the trick also the defense tower must be close to each other so that they can support each other… traps is a surprise attack so place it where the monster will mob… if you wanna know how strong your defenses are, try the wild monster baiter to test your defense capabilities, there are 4 arrows in the square, indicating the positions of the monster to be spawned.
    #3. Unlock monsters in the locker.
    #4. Level up your monsters in the monster academy!
    #5. Teach your attacker a lesson. Always attack him/her until he give up on attacking you! but how?! prepare your monsters in a battle! look for loop holes in his yards.

    #6.but if you really can’t defeat him/her, buy a protection in the shop, if you have an extra shiny! Choose the protection for a week! I think you can prepare yourself to attack him on a week! but note that you can’t attack someone when you are protected! because your protection will disappear once you engage an attack!

  25. I only have a level five town hall, 3 housings, 5 hatcherys six of all resources makers. All my housings are level 4. The way I get resources is by attacking the Kozu and Dreadnaught tribes. I know this sounds hard but once you attack them about 5 times each they get really good town halls so that when you destroy their town halls you get around 500,000 resources of each kind.(Accept Goo, you only get about 200,000 of that.)Back to the housings. Because they’re level 4 I have 1,122 housing spots. What I use to Attack are Level 3 Pokeys. 112 Pokeys can usually when in 1 to 3 attacks. And because they’re level 3 they only take 8 seconds to make 1. With five hatcherys I can rebuild an army of 112 pokeys in a matter of minutes.
    Now to the subject of a base. What you want to do is use STONE BLOCKS to surroun your Town hall. Put your best towers around it. then put your resource makers as a protective layer outside the Town Hall. Make sure to spread some of your other towers among the resource makers. Then surround them with another layer of blocks. Hatchery, Housings, Catapaults, Flingers, and all that other stuff is not as important. Oh and Send a truce message to everyone on your list, It keeps most attacks away. Oh and one last thing the last time my town hall got destroyed with this defence in place was almost a month ago and it was because they flung in 10,000,000 pebbles. So Please try this It will probably work.

  28. My base is the town hall in the exact middle (lv 5), then two laser tower and tesla tower protecting that and some resources. Also i have 4 cannon towers also protecting the town hall and resources. Then, on the outside i put 1 sniper tower for each side of the ‘square’ Of which my valubles are protected. I put my silos and 1 of each resource harvester surrounded by blocks and 2 cannon towers and 2 snipers surrounding those in a different “chamber” than the other one. All of my other buildings ex. Hatcherys Flinger Map Room Etc. in one corner.

  29. I have used this strat before. It works quite well. I’m only level 24 currently, but it does work! I took out a level 30 base earlier today, doing something very similar! I’m sure a lot of people will use your strat and tear it up! lol! two thumbs up man! ++

  30. Alright.
    To the few non-noobs that visit this website, this is how its done. 1 So put your town hall in the middle with storage silos covering it
    2 Surround with blocks but leave 4 corners open for booby traps
    3 put defenses around your blocks and leave booby traps around the ones that are the most prone to be attacked by anti defnese monsters
    4 surround with resources
    5 put blocks around the resources but leave some openings (depending on how much space you have to cover)
    6 make a long chain of useless stuff(hatcheries, map room, catapult
    …etc basically everything besides silos town hall and resources) around the outside blocks.
    7 place booby traps where most of the anything-liking monsters would probably go
    thats basically it for now because im not going to waste any more time just because of the couple non-noobs that actually go here “how do I bank my resources?” “how do i attack someone” you get what I mean

  31. Again to the non-noobs, when attacking people, you have to attack them hard.
    1 Use the catapult to catapult the defense towers that are the most bunched up.
    2 Send in some bolts to destroy booby traps(they ARE the most useless)
    3 Send in alot of crabs
    4 Send in some project Xs
    5 Catapult putty rage onto them
    6 When they are done, they probably took out all the defense towers so if:
    A. there are still some project Xs then you can choose to keep attacking to prevent risking them getting damage protection, or
    B. If you think they dont have damage protection then go end attack and attack again (you have to have a very good sense of judgment if they have damage protection dont attack them if around 30% of his stuff are dead. keep in mind even if most the things you killed were housing hatcheries and all that crap, they still can help give him damage protection)
    Hint: Choose who you attack VERY CAREFULLY and try to check EVERYONE first. If someone who is usually good is on your map and open, still check him. someone else might have weakened his defenses
    Also choose where you fling your monsters in. If you are using crabs and project Xs, just catapult their lasers until they die and then send it in on everything else.REMEMBER to use bolts to trip booby traps first Before you attack anybody, check what is in their housing.if they have Daves and that crap but their defenses suck, you might want to consider the pros and cons of attacking him

    This is to all the non-noobs,but its not like we could have went anywhere in backyard monsters if it werent for those noobs that we loot stuff from

  32. my base is squared and have walls surround all my buildings the walls have 4 entrances and each entrance is guarded by a laser and tesla and have 5 booby traps each
    i am lvl 31 pls add me

  33. the best base layout is :
    housing,hatchery,monster locker and everything else like that should not be protect becuase the are not that important
    weak guns should be protect with the resources and town hall
    all strong guns should be outside the blocks and protecting the weak guns
    to use booby traps just make some gaps in your blocks and place them in the place i suggest double layer the booby traps incase they’re itchis witch only die with a second booby trap mostly
    this is what i have done and my town hall has only been damaged once from 94 brains from dreadnut :P

    hope you find this help full

  34. That is desirable, though… as if they are destroyed by projectiles they will not lose any resource… i recommend using silos around laster towers for that very reason – they may attack, but in order to use catapult to neutralise lasers they will also severly limit the amount of resource they can capture

  35. Lots of good stuff. I liked that bit about not collecting your bonuses, thats smart. What I have done so far, is built two silos, 4 of each resource collector, as well as 4 snipers and 4 cannons. Ive maxed out all the upgrades on the towers and my silos, as well as some of my resource collector. I havent upgraded my town hall yet, i see no reason to currently. All the resources, and silos are boxed in a corner, with the majority of my guns protecting that bottom edge. This does leave my top part weak, since its just wooden boxes protecting it, put people dont realize that you can fling monsters outside an enemies yard, and they will still attack. I have Booby traps placed in between my guns, with boxes in front of the guns, directing them to the traps. I just easily held off an attack against 32 Brains with minimal damage. 1 resource collector lost half its health, and a gun was slightly damaged. Booby traps work wonders.

  36. ok you probably are higher then me if u still play by now but i wanna know if anyone on that has looked at this is 37 (my lvl) and who is the highest lvl

  37. another thing if u want to attack me my names nick baxter just add me and say its from backyard monsters beacause if you can all my res buildings are lvl 10 except for 6 lvl 8s and every other building except for new monster bunkers are fully upgraded.Ps its takes the highest lvl on my list lvl 40 4 atks to put me in dmg proc

  38. well first make sure you have a map room and then make sure you have a monster housing and a hatchery and of course this is important have a monster locker! then you should beable to attack!

  39. Im a lvl 21 and im trying to figure out the best way to take down towers and cannons.
    help me please.

    which monster should i unlock???

  40. jon (up closer to the top)said that his dase was inpenitrable but unless he sends me a photo of it I think it has at least 1 weekness!
    So jon send me a photo to and I’ll either support your claim or I’ll show you you’re weeknesses and advise!!


    P.S. this is not meant to be offensive! if it was, I’m sorry I didn’t mean it to be so!!

  41. ITCHIS will help you a lot..
    full level ITCHIS then produce at least 40 armies of itchis..
    then,after you take down towers, produce monsters that are specialized in resoures..

  42. Hello everyone if you need some usefull tips carry on reading.if you just started playing then start by upgrading you townhall to level 2 then start building and upgrading your harvesters twigs putty goo and pebble shinners up two level 4 all of them.then build all your silos and upgrade them to level 4 to remember to build and upgrade all of you cannon and snipper towers to level 3.surround your things with a stones in a circle of triangle people are doing squares and I’m destroying them all so if you want more tips just ask in he comments from the backyard monsters team goodbye

  43. monsters cannot be control,they only have instinct,so i always leave a space and place a booby trap,and boom!and what’s next, i leave it on the other defensives!:D

  44. acually daves are found by alot of people useless and not dependable…since they take a long time to hatch and create and they are slow :)project X and crabratrons are the best together unless u have good spacing in ur housing and like 1000000 shiny so u can overdrive hatcheries. PS if u want to kill lazer tower send 10 crabs and 5 poject x together then 5 more porject 2 seconds later i guarenty i porbally killa lazer tower :)

    LEvEL 36 IN BYM

    • don’t waste goo (noob) use crab+ ichi cause first(project x is really not nessecary for they are low in health )like example:lvl 2 lazer tower=15 ichi+ 5 crab then put 10000 putty when they are attcking the tower already hope it works.

  45. probably my yard right now is in mess since,
    i havent open my fb for 3 weeks i think…
    because,barely lock my fb account cOz..
    i forgot my password..

    how can i reedeem my password efficiently!?

    i already try there services but it didnt work..

  46. I am lvl 34, and i have a base that goes like this:
    i have stone blocks surrounding everything i have, in 1 layer

    i have 3 or 4 defensive towers positioned in a group to the north south east and west, so i didnt protect my corners

    but the thing is people usually get into my base without trouble with DAVEs- so is my base plan not working?
    do i have to redesign?

    • dude, place your walls/towers where they’re most useful- NEXT TO THE IMPORTANT BUILDINGS! Block off your town hall, then silos, but make sure that your defensive towers (im assuming that you have Teslas and lasers) can cover each other and the TH. its very effective. Use the non essential buildings to occupy the monsters outside your outer most wall (if you have any blocks left. It is VERY useful. also, make small gaps in the wall if you don’t have enough blocks with traps. it is also very simple and it takes no effort. Put your cannons on the outer wall, then your sniper in the heart of your base. but make sure that you can cover the cannon towers with your snipers. (use a yard planner to do that)

      well, its worked GREAT for my base, so try it out on yours.

  47. tip:D.A.V.E is weak in high damaging towers(like sniper towers ESPECIALLY teslas)so upgrade youre sniper or teslas thats what i do even 10 D.A.V.E s cant destroy my base(it just destroyed my housing some defensive tower but not resources…. hope it works

  48. sorry but dave’s are the slowest and the dumbest. why? (their relly slow even they do high damage a nd high health+they also attack not nessecary buildings if they are nearer to them test to attack my base (lvl 35) name:deither villalobos picture:gost (facebook) test it to mybase lets se if youre dave completely destroy my base!! :)

  49. dude, place your walls/towers where they’re most useful- NEXT TO THE IMPORTANT BUILDINGS!

  50. @Tim Greer – nice tips for first 7 days, but i’m at day 4 and already have almost all possible (for town hall lvl 4) building set up, resource harvesters are on lvls 6-7, and sometimes 8, towers upgrading to max (atm) level, and other strategic (war) buildings are in plans to max them out in next day.
    Why? Attacks on wild tribes – IF you have upgreaded Goo factories to lvl 3-4 (and other harvesters) in first 1-2 days, then you will just be wasting goo if you’ll not attack wild tribes, not only first attacks have quests for (i suggest using rewards from them later – when you are in need), but also that’s great resources source itself.

    And about checking upgreade time and coming back to your computer when it’s finished – well, i’m just building ALL possible buildings with short building time during day, and i’m setting long (8h+) upgreades/builds at night.

  51. u shud put it in da middle
    make a gold wall around it
    and put your storage silos beside your town hall and put laser towers and tesla towers around it and then you put your resources with other defence towers aroinjd the resources then you make another wall around it so it protects it

  52. The most anyone has taken from me is 6000 puddy, meanwhile I run around stealing an average of 500,000 of each per attack on a regular basis. Yes, I would say that I have a perfectly protected yard.

    My yard is set up like a flower. In the middle, I have my Town Hall, in the center surrounded by metal walls. In the direct corners of the town hall, I have four of my resource silos. In between two of the resource silos I have my last resource silo. In the other three voids between my silos, I have sniper towers. These are the start of the paths to the outside.

    I I
    I RT T/L RT I MB
    I ___I

    this is roughly what each “pedal,” to follow the analogy, would look like.

    CT = Cannon Tower lev 4
    T/L = Tesla or Laser lev 2
    ST = Sniper Tower lev 4
    MB = Monster Bunker lev 2
    RT = Resource Tower lev 8
    SS = Storage Silo lev 9
    TH = Town Hall lev 6

    I __ = Blocks

    -LVL 3 EYRA DOES 16,000 DAMAGE-


  54. Jesus Christ im like level 45. These questions can be answered by actually trying to do it yourself instead of eing a jew about it. Wow these people need help.

  55. Wow, dreadnaut tribe just attcked with 50 FRICKING crabatrons, and i lost 5 towers -_____-. BUT! the Eyeras self destructed and took out 17 Crabatrons ;)

    Get every thing to highest level so they cant be upgraded then
    VS The Kozu tribe and beat them
    now when you return you get 999 shiny and your houseing is full of D.A.V.E’s now u attack any other player and when you return a screen will come up in gree and it will say


    and then the rick roll music starts to play and then you hear fire in the hole !

  57. Beginners,
    * the most important things to protect are the: town hall, resources and silos.
    *If u use the booby traps well u can kill easily a lot of monsters with out strategy

    * reccomended to use ichis and finks
    * Try to find the weakest point of the base

  58. I am on level 35 – I cannot operate the FLINGER when I attack I lauch pebbles first they destroy the buildings – I click on the monster flinger a circle can be moved around the yard but does not lock and the attack times out – help what step is missing

  59. Okay:

    the best way to lay your base out is simple,
    all u gotta do is put all snipers and teslas in the middle around the town hall, then put resources around the snipers.
    After put silos in on side making a rectanglular base.
    Now put walls around it( put some booby traps instead of all bocks)
    putting booby traps will help getting rid of attacking monsters!
    Now put the cannon towers arround the walls and where u put the silos put the laser towers.
    There u go the best base so far i made :)

    I am level 34 so far.

    My best army is this:

    25 ichis

    4 D.A.V.E
    (MY HOUSING IS 1,140) It depends on how much housing u have, how many monsters u attack with

    to finish off i attack with as many wormzers as i can.

    Well i hope I was helpful

    By the way this is my first comment in the internet…

  60. hey any tips on here for a level 27 person,level 4 town hall,[upgrading to level 5],5 of ALL resources and 4 silos [all level 7],6 shiny,2 housing with 580 limit,3 hatcheries,level 2 locker,academy [level 1]

    • u need to do the following:

      Collect and upgrade your resources
      Attack others
      make some truces
      unlock monsters
      upgrade everything that u can
      dont attack if you have damage protection
      arrange your bas well (use blocks)

  61. Hey guys this is my first post but it is a glitch if you have a hatchery control center and you`ve unlocked dave then fill up your HCC
    with dave and then unfill and you should have full goo i found this out last night

    thank you everybod

  62. Tips in how to get a invincible base:

    1.Make sure your town hall has walls (if possible upgrade them to the highest level)

    2.Make sure your town hall has protection (tesla, laser)

    3.Make sure your harvesters (resource gatherer)have protection like (snipers,cannon if possible upgrade them to the highest level)

    4.Make sure you have separated the harvesters into 3s or 4s (1 goo factory,2 pebble shiner,etc.)

    5.Make sure to put your monster locker, monster academy , hatchery and housing near the town hall where it gets protection.

    6.And put the harvesters in an area where it is full of sniper and cannon towers.

    If you follow all this guides you can have the invulnerable base.

  63. thanks for the nice idea man!
    about when the tribes attack…
    your idea is really nice and so efficient..
    i will use that kind of idea man..ty

    can you give me some idea in yard planning…
    your post just a BLUE PRINT of it :3

  64. If you want to counter attack a bunkered D.A.V.E. you can use eye-ra for killing them…lvl 3 eye-ras do 16 000 dmg while the the D.A.V.E has a life of 15 000….if you want to bunker a good monster, wel, for me the banditos are excellent in killing other monsters….coz they have a good life and damage….they can kill a horde of craBRATron in just a few seconds…and make your base like a geometric figure….

  65. best thing for me to do is keep upgrading silos and harvesters then once you have tons of resources, remove the useless building like map room, store, catapult etc. well just keep em way from ur town hall so it wont be a main option when someone attack it give you more space to arrange ur defense n try upgradin all ur towers to lvl 4

  66. if u dont have hatcheries u cant make monsters dumbass and map room and flinger are used to attack people fliger flings the monsters and maproom gives u access to the map and and yard planner is optional but its really useful

  67. Just build vast army’s of crabatron and your be golden. Dont be a dumb ass and attack with only anthing monsters cause the sniper or special towers (tesla laser or monster bunker) will wipe them out quickly. I still am not at a good point with my strategy but i will probably be able to perfect it in my future battles.


  68. good idea but the yard planner makes it easyer to plan your yard faster and better but your army has a huge affect aginst other people when someone attacks you they expect they haver a bigger army and guess what you do and there screwed

  69. Dear mousie

    You attack people by going to your map. Choose the person you would like to attack and click on their icon. A list will pop up saying attack, view, truce and message. To attack, click on attack. To view their yard, click on view. To ask for a truce, click on truce. To send them a message, click on message. I hope you find this useful.

  70. don’t you need to protect your town hall? and which should i get monster baiter or a catapult

    :) I LOVE BACKYARD MONSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  71. do we get our animals back, for example Dave, if we completely destroy somones yard. one of my friend told me thins but i dont know if i can loose couple dave for just one base

  72. the best Strategy 2 build ur yard is the followin:
    put ya resource gatherer and silos N tha middle of the yard and put a wall round em. outside the wall U should place as many towers as possible and put another wall round em. all tha other buildings U should put around this so that the others cant throw their monsters directly next 2 tha wall.
    dont B afraid if ur main building gets destroyed tats not 2 bad. only few resources will B taken away.
    good luck! :)

  73. I Achieve good results by swarming opponents with level 2 pokeys and some octo ooze. they don’t do a lot of damage on their own, but 60 or 70 of them released at key points in the enemy defenses can be incredibly effective.

  74. dont accept the fu**ing horse-like structure,if you do, your yard will bewrecked. place all your def. bldg. on the side where the structure is. (make sure your on damage protection

  75. You should be at least lvl. 40 or above to accept the Fu**ing “gift” to make sure they got beaten ( inside it is 15 pokey,15 octo-ooze, 15 bolt, 15 fink, 15 ichi, 15 bandito, 15 fang, 15 brain, 15 crabatron, 15 project x and they are all lvl 3.

  76. This idea is terrible you should keep your silos and town hall protected and all your resorce buildings because if a enermey attacks they get all the money from destroying your town hall dont protect housings and haterys they repair fast and are not important upgrade your good factorys then twig and pebbles and keep attacking with ichts then pokeys or finks once all the towers are down i shoyld know im lvl 33 no one dares attack me and most buildings are fully upgraded cause i attack and earn money to build

  77. You can also build the monster juicer to change your unused monsters back to goo, use them to attack enemy bases, or put them in the monster bunker

  78. Pokey Power …

    i used 10 Octo-ooze and 60 Pokey’s all level 1 still and Looted:
    245,978 Twigs, 512,307 Pebbles, 551,326 Putty and 422,139 Goo … attack cost me about 16k i think :P

  79. Help? I accepted a truce and I do not know when will this expire. I want to attack her outposts already because I always get 2M resources after I destroyed her outposts. :DD

  80. i agree all you really need to do is be able to defend from big waves of monsters and attacking is important but you dont really need to attack at low level all you really need to do is get everything fully upgraded yet attacking someone once in a while

  81. D.A.V.E are pointless the best strategy is to get loads of project x and you need 10mil putty and you attack people with towers close by as they go after them first then attack anything

  82. I’m Level 34….I just finished upgrading my map room…so far I have 2 outposts…but I destroyed another Wild Monster’s Base and found out that the requirements to take over was higher that the first 2(20,000 of every resource)…So I decided to collect more resources…I just finished collecting but when I got back..the base was entirely fixed…so I attacked it again and found that my goo was only 20,000(LOL)…and I saved up again and the same thing happened…I ended up with 20,000 goo…what should I do?…Please help me

  83. hey backyard monsters players im a level 35 at the moment an when i used to be level 31 with my strategy i got up one full level in the matter of 10 mins with my stradegy so here it is wat i do is just keep attacking people around ur level and you end up finding a few people that ither leave there town hall on its own or there not protecting there silos so you end up attacking them nearly everyday and you get millions of recouses see theres this one person i attack they have a level 6 town hall just on its own so every time i attack her i end up leaving the battle with at least 2 million twigs, 1.5 million pebbles 900 thousand putty and 200-300 thousand goo so there follow my steps and you will be a pro in no time :) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  84. What i have done, is put all non-essential buildings around the edges, away from the essential buildings. i leave these non-essential buildings unprotected cause they repair quickly, and i dont really need them much. this in an excellent strategy, because then my main area of silos, harvesters, town hall etc is much smaller, therefore all of my defensive towers overlap their ranges, so i have more protection. i also have holes in my stone & metal bricks, because this draws them to those holes. i then put many booby traps there, so enemies are destroyed quickly. also, fill monster bunkers with lv 3 eye-ra, cause each one takes out loads of enemy monsters. i use teratorn to attack: they may use a lot of goo to make, and take a lot of housing space, but laser, cannon, monster bunkers and booby traps are totally ineffective against them, so suddenly its as if the enemy has large holes in his/her defences. i am lv 34, town hall lv 6. i get about 3million of each resources every attack i make.

    • if your better than all of us, what level are you, and what level is your town hall? and what level are your resource collectors? what level are sniper, cannon, laser, tesla and monster bunker(s)? then we shall see whether or not you are better that all of us

  85. by the way is there actually any point in unlocking D.A.V.E? cause im wondering if i should use my putty to unlock him, or upgrade other monsters. thanks and please answer soon :D

  86. They say: “create huge armies of Crabtron to attack other players. This way you will loot tons of resources easily!”

    I’ve recently been attacked bij 72 wild Crabtons.. They’ve only demolished one sniper and damaged one other building before I killed them.

    How much difference would 72 crabtons make if I build them?

  87. I just need a basic info: how do I attack someone? I have built up my base,but want to spread out & get some free resources.

    • go on your map, then click on a name, then click attack. if you use the map in list mode, look for the name of a person you want to attack then on the right it has the button attack: you should click this button

  88. You won’t be able to take it over, because your Map Room is not level 2. You will need Town Hall level 7 I think to take over their territory. I hope this is useful.

  89. there isn’t any super good stradegy, nones the best. but whta i would do is put you silos on the outside because if ther are destroyed you can still use them. also make sure that every thing is close together than attackers cant get every thing because its all packed tightly. please try this, i am fear by a lot of people and im only level 27

  90. im lv 32. i just unlocked dave and he is an absolute waste. teratorn is the best, or loads of pokeys, or bandito with crabatron.

    • yer dont worry, that always happens with everyone. it really annoying when its a monster that takes ages to produce :(

  91. Brain are good at looting tons of resources but they have low damage.You can use brains to attack people when u want resources

  92. attack more people to gain experience to level up or just keep on harvesting resources(it also gives u more experience)

  93. im lvl 29 going up to lvl 30
    i need some cool advise on how to place defensive towers
    i have no experience on attacking someone’s base
    but please give me some advice on how to play BM happier

  94. How can I get more shiny
    I only have two workers and I want atleast one more
    how can I get more shiny other than buying it

  95. If at all possible, get monster bunkers as soon as possible and fill them with eyeras, it helps wipe out powerful first wave dave attacks quite easily and seems to be the only probable way to kill daves accomanied by a zafreeti

  96. upgrade all your recource gatherers (bad english) to a level 7 then all ur defence including cannons snipers shud be a level 4 or 5
    ur lasers and teslas shud b level 2 thats what i did and i have so much recources i dont know what to do with them lol oh yea usse as much booby traps as possible and walls

  97. ok, all this is good, my defence is that i put my resourses and silos SEPERATED from eachother. if you have them all in one spot someone could use itchi to take out your towers and then just send in 5 banditos to take out the resourses. if you have them spread out it takes much more to take them all out, you have to take out all the towers and all the defences to be safe taking them. also, have your laser towers WELL protected with a cannon tower or two, the cannon towers have better range and can take out some of the forces while the laser takes them out when they get to the cannon.

  98. im almost lvl 38..this game is getting so boring..

    i dont have much neighbor,,all of my neighbors
    were all tribes..and their so boringg,,,

    but then now,,i enjoy playing DOTA… :)

  100. Hello Everyone; After reading through the comment thread I will disscuse to widely used topics, Protection and Army.

    First up; Protection.

    Protection: When you build a base you generaly want to protect your most valubal buildings!
    Thereforth I made a list of the most valubale buildings in the game.

    Town Hall: 100Pts. It takes the longest to rebuild and is the center of your base

    Silos: 80Pts. Its where you keep the bulk of your resources an should not be left ungaurded; They are the main targets in attack (when You attack you attack for resources of course)

    Resource Collectors: 50Pts. Considering how many resource collecters there are you should have them under quite good protection and will be targeted about the 2nd most in the game

    Defensive Towers and Buildings: xxpts. These ones defend themselves to some extent therforth making them unjuable! Have them overlap!

    Housing and Hatechery: 30-70pts. Depending on how much you attack these are eather crucial or unimportant and bait

    Other Buildings: 10-30Pts. Depending on your style of play you should offer up the ones you don’t use much as bait and protect the crucial ones

    Now for the army part
    In an army there are a few points to look at:
    1.) What are you after? Look at what you want to capture and then build your army based on that!

    2.) Protection, Have Itchi or Crabaton be the bait as stronger monsters do the damage.

    3.) Traps, Send in a few pokeys or octooozes to check for traps before you realy start attacking.

    4.) Catapult, Think on how you can use your catapult to help out your monsters (ie. Increase strength with Putty; and weeken Defensive towers as backup!)

    5.) Be originol; Copying my exact plans won’t let you learn anything! so Improvise a bit; This is just a rough guidline
    Thanks for Reading!

    Good luck and please leave follow up Comments and tell me how it worked for you; Also rate this ;) Thank you!

  101. im lvl 29 need help how can i arranged my yard and i have lot of resources but players always attacked me and i send truve they wont accept…..any tips

    • Dear WAAWA,
      There are a few resons why you are being picked on so much; and

      there are a few anwsers ;)

      Here are your options and I hope they help!

      1.) Your Yard: Something is wrong if they have such ease looting

      it! I recomened you rearange it and try to get a good set

      up; where the silos, townhall and resource’s are protected!

      2.) Boycott; When being bullied one of the best ways is to quit the

      Game for a week and then return; bye then they will have moved

      On to someone else!

      3.) Threats; These work quite well for me, send them a TRUCE invite

      after attacking there yard 5x in a row or such, and say

      something around, “your stronger than me but I can still hurt

      lets work together instead or will both end up dead!”

      I truly hope this helped you ;) please respond; at anyone and

      everyone; just leave me a ? and I will help you out :D

      and don’t forget to see my earlier tutorial up about 5-7 post up!

    • man buy yourself a week of protection and upgrade your town hall and all your towers as much as you can, NEXT. !!!

  102. I have developed my own strategy. I find it works rather well. I am a level 34 and can defend level 40’s with this placement of buildings, turrets, and, of course, blocks. with help from the monster baiter, i have nearly perfected this strategy. First(like everyone else) I place my town hall in the center, then i put my champion cage right next to it. I place all my resources all around my town hall. I place a layer of blocks surrounding my resources, surround all of this with turrets, then another layer of blocks. I keep buildings like the hatchery, monster baiter, silos, monster lockers, and even monster labs. outside my base.

    The key to not being attacked though is to keep a low profile… don’t send truces, messages, don’t even attack someone unless you have analyzed their base and are sure you have the power to defeat them.

    a rule i go by: be sneaky, when attacked, be prepared


  103. my yard is impenetrable cuz as soon as i get attacked, chuck Norris pops out of the monster bunker and roundhouse kick the little bastards.

  104. I just made it like my silos, town hall, and four sniper tower in the middle and i put two layers of blocks aboutnd it and then i put the resources outside

  105. for all those begginners out there,who probably aren’t reading this,like me when i first started.

    anyway, when you’re a begginner actually READ the tutorial. I didn’t and guess what, it took me 10 minutes to find which building was the hatchery.

    okay tip two spend your shiny only on workers or expansions. save up the shiny you get from mushrooms or you’ll be like me, only 2 workers.

    the third tip? upgrade the damn resources for gods sake ,don’t use shiny to buy resources, use your resource harvesters! simple. by the time your protection is gone you should have all level 4 harvesters.

    the last tip quit trying to upgrade your town hall so much. upgrade and build other things as well. there’s no point in trying to fly when you can’t walk. don’t upgrade your town hall the first chance you get. upgrade everything else and when you have no choice upgrade it

  106. now about the champions. none of them are better than the other. here’s some advice though

    lets talk about Gorgo. hes great for beginners level (-30) because his high health and damage make him practically invincible. but here’s the thing. Gorgo is a solo monster. Sure you can send groups in with it but it doesn’t make Gorgo or the other monsters any stronger.So he’s for beginners.

    now about Drull. hmmmmm? he’s deadly in the later evolutions but for the moments in lv.1 and 2, he’s weak. but unlock zafreeti and that’s another story. once drull is matched with 4 zafreetis watch him pillage anyones yard easily. add a few daves and bam, the only thing stopping it is the heavy traps.

    finally fomor. well hes extremely weak before level 3 so you have to put up with a pile of garbage in your cage for a while. then evolve him to level 3 and you are rewarded with a flying, rapidfire, constant putty rage frog that is deadly and avoids all walls and traps and other champions. you pretty much need to have a really good base to withstand a fomor attack with like 40 banditos in the back.

  107. if you notice when attacking you cannot send monsters too close to buildings so if you put blocks around your base then the attacker will have to attack form further away-it works

  108. ikr real bad

    there’s a lot of gud ideas but i don’t have time to fix my backyard yet though . . . anyways gud luck on this strategy lololz


    i want to share with you what the best base is. the golden rule: protect all the important buildings and use the useless buildings as a shield or lure for monsters without a specific target.

    now, what are useless buildings? hatcheries, wild m baiter, yard planner, academies, map room, and flinger. Use them as shields or baits for the monsters to go to and then die.

    what is the most effective base you can build without loads of shiny? one word: mazing. be creative. learn from the kozu tribe. they have excellent mazing. when you maze, 3 good things happen. first, monsters have a harder time getting to your important buildings but you can crush them easier. second, you can protect your lasers and cannons by making an elaborate maze so even the strongest monster DAVE will die at your lasers and cannons. third you delay the deadly 10 million putty rage. the monsters have to make it through your corriders and hopefully you wasted all the time and if you didn’t, place a monster bunker to delay them further. my point is, mazing works best.

    ps. if you don’t know if your maze is gonna work, use the monster baiter to find out.

    pss. the higher level the block, the more more blocks a monster is willing to pass before biting a hole though a monster without a specific target will destroy a chain of buildings and then will still go the given number of blocks.

  110. thank you helpful advice they dint attack me anymore thank you for your concern hope your reading this backyard gm bless you……:)

  111. i have a stage 4 formor they are not attacking me anymore and when i attacked they are sending truce hahahaha there scared of my champion hahahahaha

  112. I usually attack with 15 lv.4 crabatrons, 5 lv.3 project x, and 2 lv.2 zafreeti to clear defenses. Then, I send in brains or bolts, with lv.5 drull, for looting. You should be high leveled, have lots of goo. Works well against lv.33 to lv.43 kozu

  113. tell you what, leveling in Backyard Monster is useless! When you get to a high level, many strong people will attack you. So I do not recommend people to level up so quickly

  114. COMBOS

    there are many monster combos in BYM you will face as you level up.

    The first, pokey and octo ooze. do not underestimate them. the pokey will destroy practically everything and can only be stopped by the laser whose attention should be held at the octo oozes. since the lasers range is so small, the octos only have to buy it for a few seconds before the pokeys are out of danger. later replace pokey with bandito

    the second more expierenced combo is crabbatron/ ichi with project X. the crabbatron will actually kill all the towers and the project X will destroy more powerful towers. key take out laser.

    the last two combos are super deadly. the DAVE zafreeti, and the PPX.

    the dave zafreeti combo is very powerful since the DAVEs health is constantly replenished by the zaf. to overcome it, there are only 3 ways. Use Eyera monster bunker. Heavy traps. Or DRULL. otherwise your base is toast. NOTE you will not face this combo until you are level 34+. don’t worry.

    PPX. now what does it stand for? Puttyraged project X. YES. it kills anything and everything. 20 project X splattered with 10 million rage hurts. A LOT. it can send your gorgo back in its cage in a matter of seconds. It can destroy your yard in less than a min. since nothing can stand against it for more than 4 seconds. Except you can maze your yard. and fill your monster bunkers to delay them. HINT a pokey dies as fast as an ichi when facing a project X so use pokeys. NOTE will not face until level 40+.

  115. Hi, I am level 36 at the moment… So I have a level 8 town hall (maxed) and 5 silo’s (maxed level 10) About 10 level 10’s on resource gatherers… I think tips for this game is impossible, sorry. It’s just a game with a lot of different ways!

  116. i think the best way to build a good base is to build nd upgrade every possible building tower or block so later on, uyou kind of get a jump-start on a lot of things

  117. if your attacking, u should try making 3 of every minor monsters(stops at crabatron)so different will attack different towers.for your base layout, u should put your town hall, resource towers, storage silos, and major defensive towers (lasers and teslas) inside your walls and other buildings outside of your walls. A decent idea is to leave a blind spot and put a LOT of booby traps there.

  118. Backyard home security.

    I run into alot of people relying on huge walls to protect important parts of their yard. Wich is the obvious thing to do. The only problem is 1 eye-ra can efectively remove an insane chunck of a wall. This is easily avoided by stratigically placing single segements of wall away from you base. Acting as bait for any mischievious eye-ra trying to clear a path..(recomend these peices be with in range of at least 1 tower) It’s an easy and cheap sollution that im surpised not many people use.

    Also, do NOT create long walls. Even if they are 3 or 4 segments thick. This will allow players to pick an area and burrow through where THEY like. Put weak spots or even gaps in your walls. The attackers monsters will try to save time by walking around. Doing no damage while they do so, and allowing YOU to choose where you will be attacked. Rather then the other player.

    Hope this helps you understand how you would like to build your base.

  119. There are a lot of horrible tips on here. Look up PokeySlayers guide on the Kixeye forums about building bases strategies like silo death traps and townhall death traps to curved walls never ending chains of useless buidlings monster pathing. These suggestions that you guys make i bet you i could take your bases in fail swoop with pokeys. Use dave/zafreeti mix or crabs/invisibrains/zafreetis.. zafreeti is key. catapult their adt and bait their bunkers with eye ras. put daves with rockets and an eye-ra in your bunkers. just a few tips.

  120. the first point is you shuld put all the main things like level 10 pebble shinner etc. near your town hall.and cover your town hall with one layer of black dimond walls.u should put all the things like hacthry map room outside so that the enimies who would be having monsters whos favorait target is anything will first try to finish those things. till the time they would be distroying those object yout defence towers will finish them off. for those who are macking chapionns cage remember guys you should hatch gorgo
    it is the best one .your may know former is waste and drull is well but you may not know that a level 5 gorgo can easiely beat a level 6 time i made one more id for plaing backyard monsters.i hatched drull then i juiced my level 6 drull for a gorgo!!!!!.And now i play with my oun id and i have a level 5 gorgo.its a wild beast i can easily beat two yards.the point which peole usually think about is they think that former should be good as it flyes but yet if you send a drull a drull will die in his yard but a gorgo has a great amount of healthso he can easiely survive for even 10 minuts in a level 6 formers yard after the attack is only for 5 to 6 minuts.

    a great trick for biggeners mind plzzu can hatch a champion in a minute if you follow this
    when you start playing first take your town hall to leavel four with sines.then like backyard monsters you will get 50 shines the u must be having about 395 shines left go to building and and click on build champions cage with shines they will ask for 391 shines and u have 395(aprox.)use them and hatch your gorgo~!!!!!!!!.

  121. When you have a gap in the piles of blocks build a booby trap in the gap.Remember to hatch gorgo.Do you know that you can buy buff when your gorgo is lv 6?Then gorgo will beat fomor.

  122. defending the backyard for me doesnt matter anymore no matter how strong that is only i can say is i can beat it up even you have level 6 drul or level 6 gorgo . i prefer fomor. one best strategy in game to make succesful in attacking any backyards. well regarding about enemy champions just feed it with some pokeys then you will win the game. and be patient even it takes 1 to attacks without using healer and not using dave and not using brains. first wave to first to destroy is all defensive buildings you can use ichis and some pokeys then use fomor. crabatron is fine too. i wont tel how to do it. 2nd attack is you can now use pokwys and finks. then fomor. coz in first wave all defensive buildings are already damaged so 2nd attack is to totally destroy the remaining buildings. and regarding about the enemy monsters i dont care. he wont hurt my fomor and finks even my first attack ichis he canthurt it just use pokeys for the champion. well this will help all people not all knows about this strategy. i hope i dont violate by tellign this to this site.

  123. that would be stupid matt cause then if u have like 50mil goo then some1 could have like 20mil project x or something and then just use 10mil putty and ur base is gone in a few seconds

  124. Im back and 4 the people who actually go here, go to the forums. It gives u great ideas and how to make ur yard better. Its where the pros are not this stupid site.

  125. I have my yard arranged in a square-ish shape. I have towers placed so that every aspect of my yard is covered by at least two different defense towers. Everything is surrounded by walls, which so far I have upgraded to stone, and my town hall is surrounded by another section of walls upgraded to granite. My town hall is near the middle of my yard and is the most defended place in my yard. 8 tower ranges overlap there. Using a monster baiter is a great way to test your defenses: It doesn’t really matter what monsters you use, just use a lot of them or a mixture.
    When I attack, I prefer to use the monsters with a higher health rather than attack: Octo-oozes, Ichis, and Crabatrons are my go-to monsters.

  126. all you hopeless noobs just use a hack tool to get all the shiny you ever dreamed of for free reply if you want the link

  127. I’ve actually found that the best strategy is defense in depth. My main base (not outposts) has evolved over time, with me putting everything in arbitrarily. It’s essentially a chaos of buildings with my town hall (walled) in the center. I have some of my level 5-6-7 towers walled, and i’ve used up all my booby traps. the advantages to this strategy is that i have overlapping fields of fire, and, as monsters automatically attack the nearest building, only a brute-force, overwhelmingly powerful attack can open up a corridor to the town hall. Also, all of my buildings that can be are fortified. My hatcheries and monster lab and housings, etc, expendable buidings are on the edges, with TH and silos in the center. A GREAT tip that i’ve found is that your monster bunkers should be on the edges, as they expend their attack quickly. another is that Drull is best for defense, and, indeed, at lvl 6, the attack only really has a chance until Drull gets there.


  129. add me aristo gunawan i cannot destroyed player lvl 31 attack me 10 times and can destroy me (need much time to make 2 zaferty healing champion and make army)

  130. use lv 3 and up fomor, around 3 or four daves with 2 zafretti and u get a killer monster combo pack. (very good for destroying yards)

  131. Wall your th and silos because you will loose 5% of total amount of resources for TH destroyed and 4% PER silo destroyed!!!!!!

    Do not wall your housing and put your snipers as close as posible to the middle and canons at the edge of your base.This strategy works well for me.

  132. Ok need help!!! I have 25 million resources on all…NEED to up grade my D.A.V.E.s but in order to do that the game is asking me to have 55 million ? how do you get more resources if your already maxed out???? and without buying anything with shinys. Also can anyone tell me how to get the mega yard on an out post without using shinys??? Thanks to all that may help me. ; )

  133. I tend to use 20 bandito and 3 zafreeti. The zafreeti can keep them alive thorughout the whole battle and are almost never killed. Therefore you can destroy an entire base in one run. I have been using this strategy since I unlocked zafreeti and it hasn’t failed me yet. My bas is set up with the town hall in the middle, surrounded by four highest level storage silos. Then I have six of each resource gatherer, and all of them constantly being upgraded. This way it takes a long time to get to my town hall and resources, because they are surrounded by gold walls and every defense towers available. Due to this I haven’t been attacked severely in over a month. This took a long time to perfect, and a yard planner helps greatly. If you have buildings like the monster juicer and hatcheries, but them as distractions to the attackers so they have longer to be shot at by towers. When choosing your champion monster, it is important to take in your strategy type. Drull is commonly thought of a good monster for attcking because it deals large amounts of damage; but it has low amounts of health, so it is only good with zafreetis to back it up. Gorgo is able to take a lot of damage, so it used for defense; but if you use it to distract towers while attacking, your other monsters can wreak havoc. Formor can be used equally as well for defense and offense. Master these strategies to dominate this game.

  134. i know everyone says that the most important are town hall recource gatherers and silos but howsing is also important because you spend resources to build units

  135. the best strategy in the backyard monsters is to destroy wild monsters townhall until it had reached its tonwhall at level 7,then do not destroy the town hall,destroy only the silos and harvesters,you can collect more than a million resources in each wild monster base,then attack it over and over again when it repaired its can master the attacking technique when you attacked them many times.the secret of a strong base is the aerial defense,without a zafreeti healing the monsters,the attack is a waste.master the technique in aerial defense,put yor aerial defense in the heart of your base.The first thing that your enemy will do is to destroy your aerial defense by catapulting resources into your aerial defense.So place your aerial defense beside your silos,if your enemy tries to destroy your aerial defense,he will also destroy your silos!do not fortify your silos,only your townhall!

  136. My attacking style:

    20 teratorn 2 zafreeti and 1 level 6 fomor,, destroy all the aerial

    tower,, nothing is impossible for the flying units even the dave in

    the bankers are useless,, if you just destroy the aerial towers,, if

    i am pissed of i put 250 teratorn 10m putty,, xur hits guba ang kampo

    sang mga kanu !! ^^

  137. i have my champion by my town hall and 2 rail guns by those and then under neath my champion cage i put my 5 staorage shilos and under neath my town hall i have 6 pebble shiners the 6 twig snappers then 6 goo factorys then i have 6 putty squishers, i have black clocks around all of that and on the outside of my blocks i have all my canns, snipers, laser towers, tesla towers, and monster bunkers and behind that i have all of my hatcherys housings, monster lockers monster labs flinger and right now my town hall is almost level 10 theres 9 minutes left my yard is sick!!!!!

  138. I am new to this game and only level 22, but I attacked a level 20 player and they had a champion monster, I won, however I still desire to know how to purchase a champion cage quickly. I currently have a resource limit of 610000 and earn resources at a decent speed,how can I earn resources faster without upgrading my harvesters?

  139. use pokeys along with lots of ichis for attacking. Im not very high level but i can destroy most bases with: 20-25 ichis, wait about 5 secs, 70-100 pokey. IT WORKS.(if you dont bielive me just try it it does not cost that much.)

  140. The way i have it us my town hall is in the middle and on the 4 corner I have my resorces with layer if boxes so that there us 4 opnening down the center and sides for them to get to but I have bunkers fillers with saves and rail guns with laysor tower in front and they are all surondef with basic guns then with the extra space after all buldings are placed I scater boxes so eyras can’t break open my inpornsnt ones that cover my resources.

  141. With regards to champions, which champion is the best? It was a tough decision for me but I finally decided that the best champion would have to be Formor. Drull may appear to be an excellent choice as he is abnormally strong in his first evolutions. His stats begin to plateau once you reach level four and he becomes very weak against high level resource outposts. Gorgo is generally not a choice of champion. He is extremely ineffective in attack but excellent when defending your base. I don’t suggest Gorgo as a starting champion but his stats are phenomenal enough to be in your arsenal. Fact is in a 1v1 a Lv.6 Gorgo can destroy a Lv.6 Drull everytime. In fact Forgo’s defensive capabilities are so strong that the most efficient way to kill a level 6 Gorgo is by sending 3 level 2 Zafreeti’s and 5 level5 DAVES. Formor is unique because he doesn’t stand out as beinga significant champion: he has the lowest attack damage(but the highest per second) and the lowest health. However his ability to fly and to buff monsters is what seperates him. Only select towers can hit him meaning he normally never gets more hits the 100 there is air defense towers you can catapult destroy them prior to the attack. Formor is also quick to heal and almost never takes damage. At level 1 and 2 he is a ground based champion. Making him seem to most audiences as a liability but Formor is by far the smartest attack championin the game. As a support champion he will perform strategic goals very effectively. For example when I use my itchies to attack a defense tower, Formor realizes that in orderto the itches to kill the tower smoothly they need a breach in the wall. Formor will turn and snipe a breach in the wall and turn help new monsters. Bit the most effective ability is buff. When sending a wave off monsters against an enemy Former provides buff to all monster within 3/4 yards length(pretty big). As you upgrade Formor the buff you receive will be greater This buff combined within all of your attacking monsters outmatches any champion on its own. Former is a team player focusing on unity in order to defeat the enemy and therefore he is the champion of choice.
