The S-Trike’s movement speed is almost on par with the movement speed of Falcons. It’s attack tactic is to “get inside and go ape-style.” Once it is deployed, it will weave around bases, firing at anything it passes. Because of these two factors, S-Trikes are the most Mortar-resistant unit. When Mortars fire, the S-Trike it was targeting will have already moved out of range of the Mortar bomb. After that, it’s all luck whether or not the Mortar bomb hits anything. Cannon Blasts function similarly to Mortars, so S-Trikes will also be able to dodge their bombs, to a lesser degree however (Cannon Blast bombs move faster). Turrets target Mechanized units, making S-Trikes a candidate to distract units. Bunkers filled with fast units (Falcons) or targeting units (Bazookas, Colossus', and even Wasps) will quickly get rid of S-Trikes. Sniper Towers and Laser Towers will also quickly take out S-Trikes. Upgrading S-Trikes to level 4 upwards will give massive health and damage increases, but also huge price increases.
- Very fast, similar to a ground version of Falcons.
- Low damage and health at low levels, making them easy to destroy, but after level three S-Trikes become one of the best units in the game, both damage, health, and cost wise.
- Has one of the highest damage output of all units at high levels.
- Firebit attacks you with 4 of these early in the game
- First unit to be unlocked in Factory
- Stops in front of enemy bunker units to destroy them (works the same way if placed in bunkers)
- Doesn't shoot at buildings while on the way to it's next target. When buildings are far apart, there is a delay in which the S-Trike does not attack anything.
- Expensive to upgrade from level four upwards. Highest price to upgrade to max level in the game currently, at 97,708,117 and 110,000 to unlock level 7 S-Trikes
- Massive cost increases prevent S-Trikes from becoming overpowered
- Before the Doomsday Event, S-Trikes did not work in bunkers. After the event however, a bug fix was released, making S-Trikes better in bunkers. They can still only attack ground units though.
- S-Trikes were approved (on the Galaxy Life app) on 7/18/12
- S-Trikes were released on Facebook on 8/2/12
- Based on Moto Akira Anime Protagonist (The Protagonist is Shotaro Kaneda).
- If an enemy base is completely walled (no opening in the wall) and you deploy S-Trikes outside the wall, S-Trikes will move to the nearest corner and start shooting at it. A good way to counter this is to use Kamikazes to destroy the wall first.
- Good for Alliance Wars due to short build time. At level 4, it's also very cheap (damage vs cost)
- be aware of levels 6-7 as t increases the time!
- Easily dodges Mortars and Cannon Blasts in a lesser degree.
- Destroyed easily by Sniper Towers and Laser Towers
- If you have too much minerals, unlocking and upgrading S-Trikes is one of the best ways to spend it.
- Best unit for distracting Defensive Buildings, as well as units in bunkers (with the exception of Falcons, as they target infantry.
- Works best in large groups.
- Its weakness is Many falcons,Zeppelins and Colossi.
- Freeze Turrets combined with Mortars will utterly destroy S-trikes. Use Moles or Falcons to destroy them!
- Blue Traps and Flytraps can be fairly effective against S-trikes.
Note: S-Trikes fire two shoots at a building per pass, which lets it deal double damage to all buildings.
