Rocket Choppa

Summary

  • The Rocket Choppa is a flying troop formerly available exclusively on Warships from Season 5 onwards, then implemented as a Prototype Troop.
  • The Rocket Choppa attacks from long range, and is fairly fragile, similar to the Zooka. When shot down, Rocket Choppas will deal a small amount of damage in a small radius when it crashes into the ground, and drop 2 Zookas in its place.
  • As a flying unit, only a limited selection of Defensive Buildings can attack the Rocket Choppa, as described in the table below. The Rocket Choppa is also able to fly over all types of Mines.
  • The Rocket Choppa is unlocked for players who have an Armory level of 13 or above and starts 1 level below the Armory level. It can be upgraded using Proto Tokens gained from events.
  • A Rocket Choppa costs 4 Gunboat Energy to deploy.

Visual Appearance

Rocket Choppas are small orange attack helicopters, with 2 Zookas in the cockpit, two rocket pods, one on each side, which are installed underneath two stub wing hardpoints, and three wheels underneath. They also have blue accents.

Offensive Strategy

  • Rocket Choppas will often need protection from other units, because of their low hitpoints in relation to their unit size. Heavy Choppas are best for this task as they are sufficiently beefy to soak up damage from anti-air defenses.
  • One should be careful against Rocket Launchers, as lower-ranged units can get into their blindspot and cause them to retarget. The Machine Gun shouldn't be underestimated, either, given they only outrange it by 0.5 tiles, and if too many attack at once, some might get pushed into its line of fire.
  • Enemy point defenses like Cannons, Boom Cannons, and Doom Cannons can also prove troublesome, as they can easily destroy Rocket Choppa, with each loss taking away large amounts of DPS for the attacking army.
  • Rocket Choppas can fly over the chasms in the Warship deck which can be used to reach an Engine Room without meeting much resistance.

Trivia

  • You can have a maximum of 16 Rocket Choppas if all of your Landing Crafts are level 24 or higher.
