Speed Serum
"A projectile vial full of Super Secret Sauce which energizes the troops, boosting their movement and attack speed for a short duration. Caution: side effects not thoroughly tested."


  • Speed Serum is a Temporary Gunboat Ability that is occasionally available for players who have an Armory level of 8 or above, and automatically scales to its level.
  • Speed Serum creates a massive explosion that boosts attack rate and movement speed of troops and buildings caught in its area of effect by 300%, and reduces their damage by 50%.
  • Each use costs 6 more Gunboat Energy than the previous, with a starting cost of 8 Gunboat Energy.

Offensive Strategy

  • If there are buildings that are strong against certain troops, you can use Speed ​​Serum so that the troops can destroy these buildings more quickly.
  • Speed ​​Serum can be used to help troops reach their destination faster, for example when retreating or following a Flare.
    • This can also be used to allow troops to run faster through Barbed Wire.

Defensive Strategy


  • The Speed Serum is derived from the eponymous structure featured in the Mega Crab and Mega Turtle events.
  • When deployed, the Speed Serum will override the battle theme with its own for its whole duration. Repeated deployments before its conclusion will not cause the theme to loop, but successive ones occuring after that will cause the theme to replay.
