October 2015 (Implemented)

On August 14th, Supercell revealed that they are currently developing the following additions to the game. Please keep in mind that these additions are not guaranteed and may be changed, delayed, or discarded entirely.
  • New Achievements
  • Improving the Hammerman Strikes Back event
  • Some system(s) to encourage gaining Victory Points and make it worthwhile to do so (the aim behind this is that matchmaking would benefit from a player-wide consensus to gain VPs)
  • Ability to see who hasn't done their Operation attack
  • Co-Leader rank
  • New prototype weapon

On October 14th, the Boom Beach developers held a Reddit Ask Me Anything and answered questions from players. In their answers, they revealed following changes coming in the next update:

  • New Prototype Defense called the Shield Generator that protects the HQ, effectively giving it more health
    • It can be placed anywhere on the base.
    • The Generator can be destroyed to disable the shield, but the shield itself is also attackable, so it can be knocked down without attacking the Generator. See the image below.
    • Using a Shock Bomb on a Shield Generator has no effect
  • New HQ level, HQ 21, which will include higher levels of buildings, troops (Armory level 21), and the level 21 Landing Craft
    • XP level 59 will be required to upgrade the HQ to level 21.
    • HQ 21 will have 160,000 base health.

HQ 20, Shield Generator, and Shock Mine
  • New defense called the Shock Mine that presumably shocks troops that trigger it
  • New Achievements
    • Co-operator
    • Explorer
    • Gear Up
    • Hammer Down
    • Outfitter
    • Perfectionist
    • Tickerer
  • The Hammerman Strikes Back event will be overhauled.
    • It will be split into 7 stages.
    • Hammerman will be using his Gunboat
  • Less Intel will be required to start Operations. The relative change is biggest for the small sized Task Forces.
  • Operations will have Prototype Defenses
  • New Operation Base layouts
  • New Task Force management tool to track Intel gain and Operation attacks (Image)
  • See who has not attacked yet in the current Operation (Image)
  • Improved Task Force recommendations and the option to load more recommendations
  • Ability to reinforce Landing Craft from the map
    • You will also see "Troops available for attack" on the map.
  • Visual tweaks to low level Cannons and the Armory
  • The Damage Amplifier will be "boosted a bit".

They also said that the update will be coming "next week" if everything goes according to plan.

This image was posted by Tim from Supercell on the Boom Beach Forum on October 18th. No explanation whatsoever accompanied the image. Tim simply said, "I'll just leave this here..." The image appears to be Lt. Hammerman staring angrily into a bubble. A different Boom Beach logo is also shown in the corner of the image.
Soon after posting the previous image, Tim also posted this one saying, "I'll just leave this here, too..." The image shows three Riflemen raising their rifles together. It also shows the different Boom Beach logo again.
On the 19th, Tim started an actual Sneak Peeks thread and kicked it off by announcing Task Forces. See the thread.
On the 20th, Tim added the second sneak peek to the thread. Intel is gathered by people in a task force, and it is used to uncover the Blackguard Mainland. See the thread.
On the 21st, info about Operations was added to the sneak peek thread. See the thread.
On the 22nd this sneak peek was released detailing the attacks during the Operation. See the thread.
