- Resources are the currencies used to purchase and upgrade everything in Boom Beach.
- You can see how many of each resource you have via the counters in the top right corner of your screen.
- Note: The Stone and Iron counters do not appear until you have unlocked those resources.
- Tapping on any of the counters shows further details on that resource, such as the production per hour, storage capacity, and the amount of that resource that is protected by the Vault.
- Resources are gained primarily by stealing them from other bases. Destroying a base's Headquarters always gives resources as part of the reward.
- There are four achievements, named Spoils of War, Timber Takeover, Quarry Raid, and Iron Will, that give a total of 240 diamonds upon seizing a total of 40,000,000 of each resource.
- Every resource except Diamonds has an Economy Building that produces it and one that stores it.
- Diamonds are a premium currency meaning they are not required for anything, but they can be used to buy other resources or to shorten upgrade times.
- See the chart at the bottom of this page for the ways to get each resource and the ways you can use each one.
