Description

The Bertha is a massive cannon that fires high-energy plasmoids across the map. Used appropriately, it can effectively suppress enemy operations from the safety of your base. Do not expect it to win battles alone for you, however.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

The long range and loud noise of the Big Bertha can be used for a little psychological warfare. Scout the enemy base. Have the Big Bertha shell the enemy base and prepare for a heavy attack. If they have an army, they will panic and send it to your defences in a last ditch attack. If you've prepared enough, their army will be destroyed and you can mop up their base with your army. If they don't have an army, keep shelling and destroy their base.
