General informationEdit

The Defense Lab conducts research on countering enemy units when they attack your base. Research each unit to weaken its attack!

With some Troops it reduces the damage by −10% of the Level-1 damage for each unit rounded up. Newer Troops and Troops that need cores (or Terraknor Controls) to build do not seem to follow the 'old' "Damage Reduction Formula". The cost of Platinum to defend against 'Core Troops' might be better spent on Gun Upgrades.

For example:

  • The damage of a Titan is 15 at level 1. The damage reduction would be −10% of that, −1.5, rounded up to −2. Each additional Level decreases the damage by that much (10%) until Level 10.
  • The damage of a Sentinel is 200 at level 1. The damage reduction would be −48% of that, −96. Each additional Level decreases the damage by 10% more until Level 6.
  • The damage of a Decimator is 3000 at level 1. The damage reduction would be −20% of that, −600. Each additional  Level decreases the damage by 100 more (3.3%) until Level 9, then 200 more (6.6%) until Level 13, then by 300 more (10%) each Level.

While building a Defense Lab to Level 14 does cost one Cerulean Core it allows you to Defense Research Decimators to Level 1 (which does not cost any Decimator Cores), so it may be a good investment.

Currently, the Defense Lab is only available for Building on the Main Base, it is not available for Building (despite a Defense Research Tab on the mid-right side of the Screen) on either the Aurora-1, the Caldera-2 or the Eclipse-3 Colonies.
