Battle Cats God Cat




Well, let's say I'm facing an uphill task for Battle Cats final chapter 3 stage 48 as I have already activated my first free use of God cat unknowingly. But I like the challenge of beating Battle Cats stage 3-48 without cat food.

God Cat can perform 4 kinds of miracles to help you:
  1. Wrath of God (20 cat food): Attack with lightning that is 3 times more powerful than cat cannon.
  2. God Bless You (10 cat food): Blow all enemies back to their base.
  3. Healing Oasis (5 cat food): Heal all your cats.
  4. Baby Boom (90 cat food): For a limited time, there'd be no cool down for cat production, and money production at the highest level.
The very first time God Cat is used it'd be free.

*Update: Thanks everyone, I got Moneko. It's not automatic, you need to manually receive all the 10 gifts. I have almost finished upgrading her to level 20. Let's see whether she can tank the first kangaroo at stage 3-48.

Battle Cats Best Quality Treasure


Yi Lin asked how to get best quality treasure.

Download the updated version of Battle cats for Treasure event or festival to increase the chances to 2x to get treasures. I believe you need to be online (mobile data/WiFi) for it to be activated, just like the half-price store (they want you to buy). Remember to check all three chapters as the treasure chances are independent. Clear all stages once to activate them so that a treasure chance can be in any of the stages, thus increasing your chances. If you are able to max out the energy tech and treasures, it will also help. Once I see the treasure chance for that stage, I usually hammer it until I get best quality treasure. So far, I only did not succeed once because I did not have time to continue. If you have full energy, you can also cycle through the stages by playing the stages you have won once, then second round, then third round... I have somewhat success for that for first two chapters, also helps to gain more experience that way for upgrades.

My observations: Chapter 1 stages are more dependent on speed. However, for those stages you got no treasures or inferior most or all of the time, try the max money cap method. Chapter 2 stages, I use max money cap method mainly for later stages. Chapter 3 chances are much lower. I use the cycle through stages method or wait for treasure events.

Some observations of getting treasure:
1) Use tank cats to stall
2) Max out the working cats
3) Store max amount of money until it hits the cap
4) Release all the high level cats
5) Fire your laser, doesn't matter if it hits anything (Tried one level for 10 times and got the best quality by firing it)
6) Let them hit your tower once. My comments: Very difficult to tell.
7) Seems like speed of completing the game is important as well
8) If max money cap & units doesn't work for that level, alternative strategy is to play a very quick game

The chance of getting treasures are higher but not guaranteed either. Please share your findings on getting the treasures, it's important for next chapter.

More tips for getting treasure
Getting treasure in a stage seems to be a function of how quickly you complete it. The faster you win, the higher your chance of getting treasure, though it's never a 100% chance. (Faster doesn't seem to the only criteria here, check some other criteria above)

Treasure qualities are inferior, normal, and best. Which quality of treasure you receive is random. (Quite true)

Focus on small groups of levels at a time. Treasure bonuses only really matter when they fill out full sections on the treasure list.

Use the Game Speed Up tokens before you enter a stage to dramatically increase your chances of earning treasure. (Not willing to spend cat food on this)

*My comments: Thanks everyone, I got Moneko. It's not automatic, you need to manually receive all the 10 gifts.

*Update: The difference between treasure event and treasure festival. Treasure event is 2x the chance only for that given stage for 30 minutes. Treasure festival is also for 30 mins, but the difference is 2x the chance for any stage you choose (you better have full stamina and better be fast).

**Update: Tested, bike cat does not work at getting best quality treasures. It's random.

(edited)
he did for stage 1. I was able to get 48/48 on chapter 1 with him.
but i've been getting crap luck on 2 and 3.

bike cat is pretty awesome though.
slow, but great damage and hits multiple enemies.
he attacks by shooting missiles at them.
when you upgrade he becomes a biker cat and attacks with spikes popping from the wheels.

Battle Cats Units Guide


Final Stage/Level/Boss 3-48 Screenshot



Battle Cats Units Guide - Credits to Acextreme

In case someone desires a more scientific approach, here is a detailed list of damages for the important cats (if I don't bother to list them down, that just means they aren't worth your attention). This list should help you gauge which special cats you want to buy as well as how you strategize. Especially useful if you even want to beat Chapter 3-48 last boss!

As I did this when I only had the increase max attack power treasure from chapter 1, use these figures as a rough gauge. The treasures' effects stack so obviously your attack will be higher than what I listed here if you have 2 or more "increase max attack" treasures from the other chapters. And you are advised to get all the treasures because the last stage boss is incredibly hard to beat and if you do it right, you would need to use AT LEAST one god cat (instant production) in order to win; this first use is free but subsequent use require cat food (90 for that instant production activation), so please think wisely and carefully on when to use it. If you time it wrongly, unless you cheat, nothing will help you win. I have not known any methods of beating the game without one use of god cat, so if you do know, kindly post here. Otherwise, I will leave the fun of finding out how to beat that last cat to you; once you beat him, it's no fun anymore.

TIPS #1: Try it a few times to take note of what activates the last stage boss and experiment before you consider when you should use that free god cat. And note that your cats most likely will die in 1 hit from that boss, so plan on when to activate your god cat.

TIPS #2: That means it's a better idea to hit him hard than a sustained attack strategy since your cats die in 1 hit, or in the case of the great Valkyrie cat, 2 hits if all treasures acquired. So I would suggest high dmg over high dps; what use is dps if they don't survive for their next attack?

Here's the list (Sort by DPS, one "increase attack power" treasure, and fully upgraded to LVL 10 or 20; can't remember which level they are at when I did the tests):

Drunken cat = 7920 dmg / 1131.43 dps (7s per hit / 1s animation frame / AOE) is the animation means it will spend 1s dancing around before the real damage is dealt
Mythical Giant = 2016 dmg / 916.36 dps (2.2s per hit / AOE)
Great Valkyrie = 3600 dmg / 837.21 dps (4.3s per hit / AOE)
Whale cat = 1296 dmg / 720 dps (1.8s per hit)
Gangster cat = 2160 dmg / 635.29 dps (3.4s per hit / AOE)
UFO cat = 1188 dmg / 625.26 dps (1.9s per hit / AOE)
Dragon cat = 2520 / 600 dps (4.2s per hit)
Devil cat = 1440 dmg / 578.68 dps (1.97s per hit)
Executioner = 864 dmg / 576 dps (1.5s per hit)
Super Bondage = 720 dmg / 480 dps (1.5s per hit)
Super Mr = 252 dmg / 458.18 dps (0.55s per hit)
Giraffe cat = 93 dmg / 265.71 dps (0.35s per hit)

This is provided as a contribution so I don't owe anyone anything. If you are polite with your enquiries, I would help you if I have the time (which is quite a rare resource for me). If you come at me in a demanding tone, you will be ignored. Good luck with the game! I am sure this important information will aid you very much in your quest to beat the game. Have fun!

P.S. BTW, I only used 3 cats for the Chapter 3-48, of which 1 of them is a special cat (i.e. super bondage cat). Just in case you are wondering which special cat might be useful...

My comments: Drunken Kung-Fu cat seems to be the most promising.

*Update: Just reached 3-48 using the wave. Out of energy. Don't know whether to try with Kung-Fu cat at level 6 or get some more treasures and beef up Kung-Fu cat to level 20? Btw, he is cheaper and spawns faster than Valkyrie but I believe he can be easily hit or one-shot by the last boss. Valkyrie has more range and heard it can survive one hit with stamina treasure and full upgrades.

Battle Cats Stage 2-48 Dark Emperor Nyandum


I need to download updated version of Battle cats to grind treasure. They have the Treasure event or festival to increase the chances 2x to get treasure. I also heard there is a 100 cat-food for the energy bug fix, we'll see...

*Update: Downloaded the update and claimed the free 100 cat-food compensation, yum yum. I got another 2 best treasures from the treasure festival (2x chances). Cleared stage 2-48 already with mix of treasures in areas stated below. The mobs were literally at my castle doorstep before my "wave" started to push them back. The money gained treasure, which previously I didn't have, really helped as I was able to churn out another mythical-giant-warrior-cat. When Nyandum shot out his AOE attack and knocked back my entire wave, the 2nd mythical-giant-warrior-cat just waltzed in and got free hits. At the later part of the game, I was spamming so many units like crazy as I did not want the money to max out and go to waste that it reached max capacity (unable to produce any more units), LOL.

You need to activate the following treasures before you can take on Dark Emperor Nyandum

Chapter 1 Masculinity - Money production
Chapter 1 Tradition - Unit production
Chapter 1 Greediness - Money gained
Chapter 1 Snowscape - Stamina
Chapter 1 Attractiveness - Attacking power
Chapter 1 Bigness - Recharging time

Chapter 2 Masculinity
Chapter 2 Tradition
Chapter 2 Greediness
Chapter 2 Snowscape
Chapter 2 Attractiveness
Chapter 2 Bigness

I only managed to beat Nyandum after I got all the above

Battle Cats Final Level Final Stage 3-48 (Video)


Battle Cats Final Stage 3-48 - credits to dio brando for link and Japanese comrade for video

Battle Cats last stage in Japanese, but you can kind of figure out how it is done. I am also looking at how fast his production cool down is and infer that he has max money production, unit production, stamina and attack power with treasures completed in all those areas.

He is completely spamming the screen with wall-cats and later with macho-cats as well. Same trick of not attacking the tree straight away until you max out money capacity. But it seems that he didn't need all the money at all! The last boss, Bun Bun Teacher almost broke through, no more Valkyries...




Credits to Samloi
Just to share how I have beaten the last boss, similar to the spoiler video with a bit variation (can't defeat boss using that method)

1) 100% for income, production speed, stamina, attack power, recharge speed. 80% and above for cannon attack, income for destroyed dogs. All cats max level. My comments: Perhaps planning to max out wall-cat, giraffe-cat (clear early stages), dragon-cat, Valkyrie and macho-cat should be enough since that's all the units that were used. Of course the techs and treasure should be maxed if possible. Esp. those related to money production, unit production, money gained, and cat units related techs.
2) When first kangaroo comes close to base, keep spamming wall cat.
3) Spam Valkyrie when possible.
4) Once Valkyrie is out, spam dragon cat. At this stage, spam Wall cat, Valkyrie and dragon cat.
5) You will find yourself attacking the boss castle. Once boss castle reach 85000, spam Wall Cat, Valkyrie, Dragon cat and Muscle cat. My comments: Use ©wall-macho-time-spawn-method©. See my comments at the bottom of the post.
6) Once the Valkyries are knocked out (you should have 3 at this time), spam Wall Cats, Valkyrie, Muscle Cat, Dragon cat and Brave Cat. My comments: Yes, he meant the 3 Valkyries knocked out. Bun Bun Teacher closing in. Keep cool and use ©wall-macho-time-spawn-method©. Sent out gin-gang wave TOGETHER and Valkyrie later (Valkyries move faster). Use cat-cannons.
7) Use cat cannon when possible.
8) Win and get Bahumut

*Updates: Din0saurus wrote - Completed the game using Japanese comrade YouTube strategy, finally!! No need 100% buffs. Money, production and stamina above 80% good enough already.

**Updates: I cannot even survive the chapter 3 stage 48 first kangaroo. My chapter 3 treasures are lacking so back to grinding.

*My comments: Thanks everyone, I got Moneko. It's not automatic, you need to manually receive all the 10 gifts. I almost finished upgrading her up to level 20 and will use her to test out stage 3-48, after I completed stage 3-48 without her. I want to test out with and without her to see whether it is possible to complete by normal means and no cat food. Guess what, the final boss is called Bun Bun Teacher, seeesh! I would have expected the name to be more evil, more powerful, more whatever, like Satan or Devourer, but Bun Bun Teacher, "censored"!

***Updates: Tried last stage 3-48 3 times, failed 3 times. Ouch! Managed to survive the first kangaroo and reached the last boss Bun Bun Teacher with full 10.5k cap money. Pumping out tank-cats and later macho-cats to stall the final boss. 1st try too excited. Pump out the wave instead of slowly accumulating the Valkyries and dragon-cats. 2nd try, managed to knock back the final boss, but once Valkyries die, the final boss just attack faster than any of my units including Kung-Fu cat. Third try similar fate. Study the video again. Noticed that he stacked at least 3 Valkyries together. Once left 2 Valkyries, the defence started to crumble. Not a single unit individually is able to dish out an attack faster than the final boss and he one-shot everything. Money dries up and die. I concluded that my money, unit production treasures are not fast enough and also stamina and attack treasures still not there yet.

****Updates: The subsequent tries managed to knock back the final boss Bun Bun Teacher a few times. However, the knock backs were not sustainable and the defence eventually crumbled. I have not tried again, but I have fully upgraded my cat cannon to max despite knowing the longer recharge time. Anyway, if I really want to kill him, let's max everything. I am doing the treasure festival and treasure chances to try to get best quality treasures for money, unit production, stamina and attack. Perhaps also cat cannon attack (my recharge is 300% already). I am really trying to finish it without cat food, though I have 126 cat food. One of the main problem is the Bun Bun Teacher's attack is faster than any of your individual big guns and my money dries up as no scrap mobs. With my next try, I will not panic by sending out individual units after he manages to clear the frontline. Slow him down with wall-cats and macho-cats, but send out the whole gin gang in a wave perhaps. It is really quite sad that the last stage is not about strategy, but ends up with either grinding almost all best quality treasures or using cat food to call god-cat. Perhaps that is why they designed battle cats with the god-cat in mind. When all hopes are lost, call for god-cat... OMG!

*****Final Update: I was so fed-up that I activated God-cat's baby boom, yet I still lost! Best treasures on all unit production (almost all best treasures in money and unit departments), mind you.
I re-studied the video over and over again, this time paying close attention to every detail (less translating from Japanese to English). Finally, I managed to win. Still, I used cat-food to heal.
LISTEN CAREFULLY: The most important thing is THE SUMMONING TIMING between the MACHO-CAT and the WALL-CAT. What? Yes, the timing of summoning a macho-cat has to be at the half-way point of the cooldown of the wall-cat. The summoning of the wall-cat will naturally fall in place at slightly over the half-way cooldown point of the macho-cat. ALWAYS KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE COOLDOWN, DO NOT WATCH THE BATTLE less you get distracted. You will lose if you spam blindly. This is my experience.

If you must use God-cat's baby boom, do it when the income is still pouring in from killing scrap mobs. I felt stupid when I activated God-cat when Bun Bun Teacher popped out and I could summon only 3 Valkyries and income dried up. It stayed on for a good full minute but I had NO INCOME. Stupid!

Good luck Battle Cats!

******One more Update: (I thought u said last?) I cleared the second time just now using Japanese comrade method. This time round without using cat-food heal (but more best treasures), just to prove to you that it can be done without cat-food. The ©wall-macho-time-spawn-method© is crucial to delay Bun Bun Teacher to get a few knock backs at the initial defence. After he broke through my defence, I continued to use the ©wall-macho-time-spawn-method© to delay him enough to call Valkyries and the whole gin-gang wave twice and my cat cannons could also recharge and fire 2 more times (all max upgraded). He finally RIP.

*******One more last Update: (better be last) Saw in YouTube, someone cleared with tank, girrafe and bicycle cats to stall Bun Bun Teacher, instead of ©wall-macho-time-spawn-method©. I have not tried that myself but YouTube proof.

********Alicia Devon Koo's Update: Complete battle cats stage 3 with minimal treasures! I read through and I felt she did really really well to complete the game in 2 weeks. That's what I called focus.

Link in more. Post getting a bit long here. Video choppy but proof.

Good luck Battle Cats!!!

Battle Cats (Challenge Mode)


Challenge Mode

*My comments: Thanks everyone, I got Moneko. It's not automatic, you need to manually receive all the 10 gifts. Personally, I have tried the challenge mode at all non-cat-food cats and techs max at level 10 with money production, stamina, attack treasures completed at about average 60% increase. I still cannot defeat the two red-head Buddhas. I tried stalling them by pumping small units and also giraffe-cat with the "wave" and fire cat-cannons but unable to hold them back. Update: Just completed challenge mode. Completing more treasures with a mix of medals certainly helps. Now to try to win 2-48.

Back to completing treasures for chapter 1 & 2 perhaps, or try it when I get Valkyrie Cat after completing chapter 2. Btw, there are 3 chapters of 48 levels each.

In a nutshell,
  • Always have 2 wall-cats (level 10 evolved tank cat) on the field against squirrels stream until max-out worker cat and money . Then, continuously pump out wall and beautiful leg cats while keeping money max.
  • Pump out Mythical Giant warrior cat, dragon-cat, whale-cat, beautiful legs cat and UFO-cat in a wave when money is maxed
  • When it goes under 90,000 and 10,000 a black "assassin bear" is spawned. The only thing that will kill the assassin bear is a cannon blast so if it isn't ready, you are DEAD.

Do not pump out the "wave" while the kangaroos are pinned at their tree, let them advance so that your wave does not trigger the 90K mark. The assassin bear may kill your wave or worse, waves and then you have nothing left for the kangaroos.

Also fire your cat cannon early (it takes time as it sprays across the entire screen) to pre-empt the bear from destroying all your waves.

Battle Cats Strategy (Part 2)


Levels 46-48 - credits to Traf Pani

My tactic of using mainly axe, fish and cow cats worked right through until 45. But 46 onwards I had to rethink tactics a little.

My comments: Similarly, I used tank, gross and giant cats (all level 10) and reached level 44. Level 45 needs axe-cat as a lot of red enemies. Update: Just saw whale-cat (level 10 fish-cat) is also strong against red enemies with splash damage.

The big trouble is the bear, I was able to take out one using my original tactic (see my post above) in level 45 but in 46 where there are two bears at one time, this just didn't work.

My comments: Level 45 with one bear, I used the giraffe-cat (level 10 cow) to knock back the bear. At level 46, I have trouble too. So, I upgraded castle (wasted), cat (wasted) and cannon power (not tried out yet). Actually, the axe and tank cats will kill the stream of squirrels just fine.

Battle Cats Strategy (Part 1)




This type of games has very simple graphics, but a lot of depth in gameplay.

For all you know, this may be the latest craze like Angry Birds.

As a lover of strategy games - Haypi Kingdom, Emross Wars, Avalon Wars, Mushroom Wars, this strategy game naturally got me addicted.

I'll include a well written strategy by someone else (credits will be given) and also include my own experiences, which I always do for all my blogs for that personal touch.

There will be a 3-part series on the Battle Cats strategy.

General tips on beating levels (credits to JohnB)

Step 1: Increase working cat two or three times.
Step 2: When enemies draw near, send out tank cat to keep the castle safe.
Step 3: Continue upgrading working cat and sending out defensive cats.
Step 4: When the laser is charged, unleash it. This usually clears a path. If it doesn't, send out a few quick attackers (samurai, bovine, box of kittens) along with a gross cat to follow the pack of tank cats.
Step 5: Keep long range attackers and tank cats coming at a steady pace, allowing them to attack from relative safety. This takes out pretty much any enemy but works best with some close range attackers keeping enemy numbers thin.

Apart from one or two trip-ups, this has worked for me in every stage. Tank cat and gross cat are maxed out at level ten, with a few others upgraded to five or six. The laser's range is increased and working cat was upgraded in the shop to level five or so.

*My comments: I did upgrade my working cat. However, I find the 1st few levels too easy. May be better off upgrading Study to get more experience until later levels.

I believe tank and gross cats are fine until stage 17 which is my first lost. The Kan-Fu Penguins and Gorilla kills your castle too fast. Anyway, my tank and gross cats are only level 2 :-P I focus a lot on Study and Working Cat/Wallet. Need to up them a bit to see the effects.

*Update: After upgrading tank cat and gross cat progressively to level 10, I have been able to pass each stage the first time. Let's see...

**Update: Once you get Giant warrior cat, upgrade as much as possible to Mythical Giant-cat (level 10) as he makes the difference between winning and being overwhelmed. At stage 40+ (one of the stages), there are a lot of red enemies (esp. rhino). I lost and I am forced to upgrade my axe cat to brave-cat (level 10), then I can overwhelm the enemy. At stage 46, they keep spawning squirrels very quickly and my giraffe-cat (cow cat level 10) cannot even come out in time. So I change strategy to upgrade cat to macho-cat (level 10) and castle as well. Let's see.
