Players start Starship Troopers: Terran Command with minimal War Support. Keep reading to learn all the fast and efficient ways to increase your War Support threshold.

Set in the same universe as the Starship Troopers films, Starship Troopers: Terran Command is the new real-time strategy game for PC. The game is developed by The Artistocrats and published by Slitherine Software.

In Starship Troopers: Terran Command, the desert planet of Kwalasha is under attack from bug-like creatures known as the Arachnid. And you have to take charge of Mobile Units to fight off this threat.

Since these Arachnid monsters attack in large numbers, you must devise effective battle strategies to ensure victory. You will have a large number of mobile infantry units at your disposal. However, deploying them requires a special resource called War Support.

In this guide, we will be explaining how War Support works in Starship Troopers: Terran Command. Moreover, we will also be guiding you on all the ways to increase your War Support in the game.

How does War Support work in Starship Troopers: Terran Command?

War Support is a special resource needed to deploy buildings and military units in Starship Troopers: Terran Command. Moreover, War Support is also required to deploy defence units such as turrets that will prevent Arachnids from reaching your outposts.

With that being said, War Support doesn’t exactly work like currency. Rather, it is displayed as points that determine how much you can upgrade your battlefield. In other words, War Support determines the level of advanced units you can have on the battlefield.

But that doesn’t mean that it acts as a specific cost per unit. Instead, unlike traditional currency, your War Support acts like a level cap on the advanced military units you can deploy. Having said that, you certainly cannot win the battle with low War Support.

That’s because a low War Support will prevent you from deploying advanced units powerful enough to take down hordes of Arachnid monsters. This includes Tactical Officers, MK. II Troopers, Rocket Troopers, Snipers, etc. You can check how much War Support you have at the bottom of your screen, right next to the eagle symbol.

How to Increase War Support in Starship Troopers: Terran Command?

War Support is automatically earned for completing mission objectives in Starship Troopers: Terran Command. These mission objectives are displayed in the upper left corner of the screen. Although players will start off with a very limited amount of War Support, it will gradually increase as more tasks are completed.

For example, in a mission where you are tasked with capturing Radio Stations, your War Support will increase based on the number of stations captured. Moreover, doing optional quests such as clearing Bug Hives and tagging Ammo Caches will also increase your War Support threshold. However, for the most part, War Support can simply be earned by clearing one stage of the map and moving on to the next map area.
