Planetary Annihilation Lessons, Tips, and Tricks (spoilers)

Be careful when placing buildings. If you construct buildings next to metal spots, you won’t be able to build on those metal spots. That can be a big deal during the early game.

Intel is one of the most important things you can have in Planetary Annihilation. If you don’t know where your opponent is or what they are doing, you cannot beat them.

Getting fabricator kills early on, particularly combat fabricator kills, are huge deals. It slows down your opponent’s expansion and economical growth. This also puts your opponent on the back foot. This is why it’s a good idea to protect your expanding fabricators with anti-air units and combat units. A lot of the top players send bots all over the place early on to get fabricator kills.

Never stop expanding!

Put radar up all over the place, especially towards your opponent. It provides all valuable intel without having to scout.

If you’re fighting with your Commander, USE YOUR UBER CANNON.

Repair your Commander.
