What's most effective way to use worms?

Post by vinyl5001 » Sun Jul 23, 2017 2:41 pm

So, what's most effective way to use worms?
Most of the time (not always of course) I just rush to central node, usually core which has 5 slots, place around 2 worms, 2 data leach and an Ice Wall (didn't reach better programs yet) and start capturing everything what's left from there.

I have a strong feel that I'm missing some better strategy for worms, so some advices appreciated, ty

The general consensus is that worms are useless for the most part. Some people prefer to save 1 or 2 beam cannons by using it to take over the net connection nodes, but that's about it.

Here is a video showcasing the strength of level 21 Worms plus Level 21 Kraken:


It looks cool, but it is pretty underwhelming when you consider how long it took to perform the hack.

i usually use it for cleanup and thats it.
Kracken to make way, Shuriken and IceWall+Protector to secure, Worms to clean up, with the ocassional blaster/battering ram for the odd gate that wandered away from the way to the net connection to the core.

same for networks that dont protect core, just more shurikens and the occasion whrat in both case.
