In this post, I’m gonna show you a trick that you can use to minimize your losses while killing Raven Bunkers in Warpath. You can either watch this video or continue reading this post:
I’ve watched a few videos on these raven bunker formations & found out that the 2 most commonly used formations for solo raven bunkers is the V shape formation & the line formation. The V-Shape formation is when you place your units around the bunker to make a V shape. The super heavy or any other unit of yours that tanks damage goes at the bottom of the V shape. This causes raven units to spawn in the opposite direction of the super heavy & thus, they’re unable to attack the super heavy right after they spawn. They’re forced to march a little bit before they’re able to attack the super heavy which causes the super heavy to take a lot less damage. Unfortunately, if too many enemies spawn out of the bunker, sometimes due to lack of space, they end up spawning right next to the super heavy.
To prevent this from happening, you can use the line formation where you place your offensive units in a straight line right in front of the bunker & the super heavy in the middle. This gives more space for raven units to spawn away from the super heavy. This is the formation that I use while attacking raven bunkers.
However, there are a few more things that I do. The first thing I do is I deselect the super heavy & only keep the 4 offensive units selected before starting the attack. This is done to prevent my super heavy from moving around during the attack.
The next thing I do is I open fire by dragging the deselected super heavy on to the bunker. This keeps the super heavy deselected while keeping all 4 offensive units selected.
Once the super heavy opens fire, I pull it back one tile so that it takes longer for the enemy ravens to reach it. You may also pull it back two tiles if you want. However, pulling it too far might sometimes make the enemy ravens target your offensive units so pulling it back 1 tile seems to be the best option. From what I’ve observed, pulling back your super heavies one tile does in fact reduce the amount of damage significantly & in most cases you don’t lose any units & sometimes you might end up losing 1 unit.
You can watch a clip of me doing bunkers using this method at 1:40 in the video above.
