In Boom Beach Zookas are a high damage, long range attack troop. They can deal a huge amount of damage, but are very slow moving and have low health.
The Zooka takes up two spaces on a landing craft, so you can fit half as many as the Rifleman on each craft.
The Zooka is a very effective troop whilst protected behind strong troops such as the Heavy. With their long range they can actually destroy some short range defenses such as the Flamethrower without getting into firing range.
Due to their low health they are very venerable to any defense which they are in range of. Groups of Zookas will be quickly destroyed by area effect weapons such as the Mortar and Rocket Launcher.
Due to their slow speed they will often end up separated from other units. You should therefore be careful when deploying your troops and use flares effectively to keep your Zookas where you need them.
