Hammerman
"I am Lieutenant Hammerman of the Blackguard."

Summary

  • Lt. Hammerman is the main antagonist of Boom Beach.
  • He is the commander of the Blackguard.
  • The Blackguard is a military force that is attempting to take over the islands of the Archipelago and illegally enslave its inhabitants. The player was sent to the Archipelago to stop the Blackguard from taking control of it.
  • It is unknown how the Blackguard takes over free villages because their army cannot be seen in action.
  • Lt. Hammerman has 10 bases scattered across the map and are known as Hammerman's HQ. These seem to be his command centers overseeing his conquest.
  • These bases are not limited in the types and number of defenses it may have like players' bases are.
  • There are also unique weapons which are used in these bases various times.

Appearance

  • He has black/brown hair, a square nose, cubic ears, a scarred left eye and always frowns.
  • He appears to be relatively short.
  • He wears a Black uniform with red pauldrons and the insignia of a Navy Lieutenant.
  • His belt, cap and above his top left pocket have what appears to be the Blackguard symbol.

Trivia

  • It seems Lt. Hammerman is obsessed with Statues and Power Stones because of their mystical powers.
    • However, the only Statue he ever uses on one of his bases is a Life Statue on his level 35 base.
      • This might be since he seems to be more interested in smashing the statues to get the Power Stones in them (as seen in his quote when his level 35 base is discovered)
  • Lt. Hammerman's bases drop 5 Victory Points Medalwhen destroyed. The amount never changes.
  • Un-discovered Hammerman bases are covered in clouds. Tapping will say, 'Suspicious activity reported in this region!'
  • After you defeat one of his bases, various freed villages around your Archipelago will put on a fireworks show. Normally when you reclaim a village, only the village that you freed will shoot fireworks.
  • It seems that Lt. Hammerman is in need of a promotion, considering that he appears to be the lower ranked one of the two Blackguard officers in the game (lower than Colonel Gearheart; Dr. T doesn't appear to carry a military rank). He does, however, refer to the High Command that he will have to report to after the player destroys his level 60 base.
  • Despite being a higher level, Lt. Hammerman's Levels 55 and 60 bases give less loot than his Level 50 one.
  • Although the quote after the player destroys his level 60 base is referring to the Hammerman Strikes Back event, almost all players have already played the Hammerman Strikes Back event (available at HQ level 15) before destroying his level 60 base (available at HQ level 20).
  • Although Lt. Hammerman's Headquarters appears to have machine gun slits, they do not ever attack troops.
  • There's an achievement which is called Payback that gives a total of 175 diamonds upon destroying all of his ten bases on the Archipelago.
