  • The Hero Hut is a building you can find at the corner of your base that you can repair at Headquarters level 4.
  • It is used to accommodate Heroes and upgrade their Abilities.

Unlocking and Upgrading Heroes

  • Sgt. Brick is unlocked simply by repairing the Hero Hut while Dr. Kavan, Cpt. Everspark, and Pvt. Bullit are unlocked after defeating Lt. Hammerman's level 25 HQ, Colonel Gearheart's level 45 War Factory, and Lt. Hammerman's level 55 HQ respectively.
  • All four Heroes have two different aspects to upgrade: both the hero level and the level of their abilities. Upgrades do not prevent Heroes from functioning.
    • Heroes themselves are leveled up using Gold. This will improve their stats, their perk, and unlock further upgrades for their active abilities.
    • Active abilities are upgraded using Hero Tokens, which can only be obtained through the Trader. Owing to these upgrades, these abilities may do more damage, last longer, or generally become more effective.

      Hero Token

  • The Hero Hut is similar to the Armory in the sense that only one hero or ability can be upgraded at a time. Both types of upgrades can be sped up using Diamonds.
  • Cancelling the upgrade of a Hero will refund only half of the Gold cost. However, cancelling the upgrade of a Hero ability will refund all of the tokens used.

Using Heroes in Battle

  • You may only pick one Hero and one active ability from said hero to accompany your troops in battle. Any Hero perks are always attached to said Hero and will function in every deployment.
  • While the Hero is deployed and alive, you may use the Hero's active ability by tapping the button in the center of the battle interface. Doing so requires Gunboat Energy, and as with all Gunboat Weaponry, each use invokes a cost increment for the next.
  • If your Hero's health reaches zero, they will be knocked out and will lie on the battlefield, stunned. The Hero will no longer participate in the remainder of the battle, meaning that you can no longer use their ability, and Defensive Buildings will no longer target them.
    • Heroes do not count toward casualties when defeated, being fully healed between battles regardless of outcome.

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

Some people just love gadgets. Cpt. Everspark takes after her mom, who has had a long career in weapons development.
Pvt Bullit
Pvt. Bullit
It's not quite clear why Private Bullit has never been promoted, but it might have something to do with his attitude.


  • A unique Hero Landing Craft is berthed at the dock of the Hero Hut, which is used to deploy Heroes, and is deployed together with regular Landing Crafts. The numeral "01" on this Hero Landing Craft indicates its ability to hold only one Hero.
  • Unlike the Armory, Hero & ability upgrades do not give Experience. However, they count towards the Outfitter Achievement.
