Protection Grid: extra towers or upgrades?
I located that updating constantly functions much better for me than to position a great deal of towers
Check out what each upgrade does, it demonstrates how a lot the damages, price of fire, and also array would certainly be raised when you update ; I assume it comes to be clear when you contrast damages vs price.
A degree 3 (red) weapon tower as an example, is way more effective than a whole lot degree one (environment-friendly) ones.
Here's an intriguing write-up on that particular tower, and also some layout choices.
There are obstacles where you can just construct degree 1 towers, play that and also experience first hand just how the gameplay adjustments.
I asked devs the very same inquiry and also ended up there is no distinction from both price and also damages perspectives (with the exception of temporals and also leader towers). I update towers that lie in the majority of beneficial areas (i.e. where aliens pass numerous times) where room is restricted.
Price estimate from a dev :
The selection is in fact totally approximately. you.
degree 1 weapon tower - price 100
degree 2 weapon tower - price 200 (total amount. paid = 300)
degree 3 weapon tower - price 400 (total amount. paid = 700)
The damages a degree 2 weapon tower does is. specifically 3 times as high as a degree 1. weapon tower. The damages a degree 3 weapon. tower is specifically 7 times as high as a. degree 1 weapon tower.
Basically, a solitary degree 3 weapon. tower amounts to 7 degree 1 weapon. towers. They do the very same complete damages. and also the complete price of each are additionally. the very same.
If you're constructing a puzzle, the 7. towers is possibly the far better selection. If you're restricted on room, or you. have a kill area arrangement with a temporal. tower, after that probably the complete updated. weapon tower is the far better selection.
It actually relies on your playstyle. and also the selections you create any kind of offered. map.
Incidentally, the above instance holds true. for all towers. (Except the Temporal. and also Command tower, they're unique.)
