General Information

  • The Mega Crab is a special event that involves Dr. T and his super weapon.
  • The Mega Crab is a large base with infinite stages on top of a large, purple, mechanical crab near the player's home base.

  • It has 6 legs, 3 on each side, powered by heavy hydraulic engines.
  • It has 3 large, red eyes on the front and two huge claws.
  • Its left claw has a grey drill while its right claw has a clamp.
  • There are two giant containers on its back with nuclear symbols. They seem to be nuclear reactors that power the Mega Crab.

Stages

  • The Mega Crab has an infinite amount of stages. Each stage is unlocked as the previous one is defeated.
  • Between stages, different parts of the floor will raise or lower. This changes the shape of the battlefield for each stage.

  • Each stage of the Mega Crab has more Defensive Buildings and more powerful Ice Statue boosts than the previous one.
  • To beat a stage, you must destroy the Mega Core.

  • The player is provided with 3 attacks when the event first begins.
    • One attack is provided every 2.5 hours.

    • One free attack is given upon the completion of any stage.

Unique Buildings

CritterContainer

Critter Container

HalloweenContainer

Critter Bat Container

Critter Container

  • When a Critter Container is broken, it releases 9 friendly Critters that attack the enemy buildings regardless of player's own Critters level.
    • A special variant of the Critter Container is present for the October 2016 Mega Crab. When broken, it releases 9 friendly bat-like critters that behave like regular Critters, except for the fact that they do not trigger any type of Mines (however, they can still be affected by explosions of said Mines).
  • Each Critter Container has 270 health.
CryoBomb

Cryo Bomb

Cryo Bomb

  • When a Cryo Bomb is triggered by its health being reduced to zero and after a 2 second delay, it releases a large icy blast that freezes troops and buildings around it and sets off mines.
  • The freeze effect lasts for 20 seconds and reduces attack and movement speed by 75%.
  • Each Cryo Bomb has 270 health and its blast does 260 damage.
SpeedSerum

Speed Serum

Speed Serum

  • When a Speed Serum is triggered by its health being reduced to zero, after a short delay, it releases a pink blast that increases the speed of all troops and buildings around it. Unlike the Cryo Bomb, it does not trigger Mines.
  • Each Speed Serum has 500 health.
ScaryMortar

Scary Mortar

Scary Mortar

  • The Scary Mortar is a special defense appearing on the October 2016 Mega Crab. It does low damage, but it releases a pumpkin-shaped shell that confuses troops and Critters upon impact, making them wander off erratically for a few seconds. Affected troops will not respond to Flares. The impact is accompanied by menacing laughter.
  • Each Scary Mortar has 6,000 health and does 5 damage per second.
TLookalike

Dr. T Lookalike

Dr. T Lookalike

  • The Dr. T Lookalike is a cardboard cutout of Dr. T standing on a wooden box with a purple speaker, occupying a 2x2 space. When troops are in its range, audio of Dr. T's taunt will play, drawing in nearby troops.
  • Each Dr. T Lookalike has 1,400 health and does 1 damage per second. When destroyed, it does 400 damage in a small radius.
Super Soldier Vat

Super Soldier Vat

Super Soldier Vats

  • The Super Soldier Vats refer to multiple different types of vats, that are named according to the troop that they hold inside them. Each of these vats contains a very powerful version of a specific troop, which will fight for you.
  • The vats vary in contents and hence vary in names. They even vary in hitpoints.
  • The troops contained inside them behave like Critters and will not follow Flares, will not be buffed by Magma Statues of any sort, and cannot be healed by the Medkit or by Medics. They also do not count towards casualties if they are destroyed.
  • The troops contained inside these vats include:
    • A Rifleman, released from a Rifleman Vat, which has 10,000 health.
    • A Heavy, released from a Heavy Vat, which has 20,000 health.
    • A Warrior, released from a Warrior Vat, which has 20,000 health.
    • A Medic, released from a Medic Vat, which has 15,000 health.
    • A Grenadier, released from a Grenadier Vat, which has 15,000 health.
    • A Critter Bat, released from a Critter Vat, which has 20,000 health.
  • Some troops have a set of passive abilities that are not normally available to the player.
    • Riflemen have a greatly increased firing rate, similar to a Machine Gun.
    • Warriors freeze buildings they hit in a similar manner to the Cryoneer.
    • Medics will also speed up troops, with a similar effect to Speed Serum.
    • Grenadiers throw five grenades per volley, each causing a big blast.
