G.I. Joe: War On Cobra Tips

Use Gems When Loading Up Cargo

Gems are important but do not be afraid to use them once in a while. You can store up to 4 cargo boxes but you can only open one at a time. If you need new units or new building then you can use gems. Leave the cargo that takes longer overnight but be sure to spend gems on the ones that are not going to take too long.

Switch Sides

If things are taking too long and you do not want to spend gems to speed things up then you can always switch sides. If you are playing JOEs and find that your builders are taking too long then you can switch over to the Cobra side to pass the time.

Gold And Oil Are The Most Important Resources

Gold and Oil are the most important resources in the game. Both of these can be produced at your base so you do not even have to battle for these resources. Oil is used for buildings and upgrading your base. Gold is used to upgrade units for battle.


How much control you have over your units in the game is what differentiates G.I. Joe: War On Cobra from other games like Rush Wars. You have direct control over the movement of your units, unlike other games in which you place units and pray that your AI is clever enough.

Use this to your advantage. You can easily bait enemy units into coming out of cover or mounted equipment.  Move close and then retreat back to draw these units out. This is a very safe way of approaching difficult situations.

Pairing Units

Pairing units can give you the upper hand in certain situations. You can defend a stronger unit with multiple weaker ones. You can even pair a commander with a vehicle. Some vehicles can be ridden and this allows the commander to move around much faster.

More Units Is Always Better

Early on in the game, the number of units that you can take into battle will be limited. You will be able to upgrade them. Reach level 6 and things get a bit better. You will be able to take more units with you. Make sure that you can summon units and that units with high energy requirements are not wasted.
