"Years in the jungle have had a pronounced effect on Dr. Kavan. He now uses natural oils to groom his moustache."

Summary

  • Dr. Kavan is a Hero who supports your troops in battle using his abilities.
  • To unlock him, you must beat Hammerman's HQ level 25.
  • As a healing Hero, he does not do damage of any kind. Similar to Medics, he will heal your troops.
  • As a Hero, he does not require time or Gold to train. If he is defeated in battle, he will reappear in the Hero Hut after the battle, fully healed and ready to fight again.
  • His Hero Perk is Galvanizing Presence, which reduces incoming damage of troops he heals for a short period of time.

Hero Abilities

Similar to Gunboat Weaponry, Hero Abilities can be used during battle at the cost of Gunboat energy. Your hero can only have one ability active in a battle. The ability can be fired more than once, but the energy cost increases each time. The following are the three abilities available to Dr. Kavan. Click one to read more about it.

Offensive Strategy

  • As a support type hero, Dr. Kavan is arguably the most versatile hero. He is essentially a super Medic, and will excel best in attack strategies that already have Medics.
  • Unlike Sgt. Brick, Cpt. Everspark and Pvt. Bullit, Dr. Kavan's Hero Abilities can be used while inside a Smoke Screen. This can come in handy when Smoke Screens are in use.

Upgrade Differences

  • Most upgrades increase Dr. Kavan's hitpoints by 6%, heal per second by 4%, and damage reduction percentage point by 0.3%. The level 19 stats increase considerably from level 18.
