ZOBA: Zoo Online Battle Arena Tips
Hide In Bushes
If you hide in bushes the enemies can’t see you and you can easily damage them with the grenades. Before the battle begins, always try to take a position in the bushes. You can also find some good loots hiding in the bushes. Beware of the Pepper the Giraffe who has a passive ability to see the animals that are in the bush.
Save Coins And Gems
Coins are used to upgrade your animals. You need to save them up to buy the card of a particular animal from the shop which keeps changing once in a while. You can also save up coins so that when you reach a higher league, you can spend your coins on better animals. Always upgrade a particular kind of animals and grind with that animal to save up more gold.
Gems are the premium currency, do not waste them opening crates. Always be patient and wait for the chest timer. Use your gems only to buy better crates so that you can have better items and animals.
Collect League Rewards
You are ranked in this game based on the number of trophies you have collected. To get trophies, you need to score a better rank in the battle. There are various rewards in the league ladder so once you gathered the required amount of trophies, you can collect the reward by tapping on the shield icon at the top left corner of the game screen.
Try Out All Animals
Even if you haven’t unlocked all the animals, you can still try them from the pet menu. With this feature, you may get an idea of the skills and stats of all the animals. It will help you in assessing your enemies in the battle and making a strategy on how to defeat them.
Collect High Tier Loot
Always look for the golden shinning weapons, those weapons have more range and deal more damage to the enemies. If you find an enemy with high tier loot, keep your distance and once he engages in a battle, take him out with grenades or other weapons and steal their loot.
When you are in the water, your movement speed will be slowed and you can’t use any weapons. So make sure to avoid going in to water as much as you can. If you are Fuzzy the Penguin, you can use his passive ability to move in the water faster.
