Placement Edit

In addition to your own HQ, defender FOB's can actually benefit all HQ's and FOB's of your Alliance members as well. That's why you will see Alliances clustered together in War Zones.

A common mistake that players new to War Zones make is trying to place an FOB in a Zone Area with an Insertion Point - this cannot be done. This is to prevent large Alliances/Coalitions from surrounding Insertion Points and preventing players from deploying at all.

Also, FOB's can only be placed on a space that is next to your HQ in a War Zone.

Mining Station Edit

FOB-Pic-MiningStation

This Forward Operating Base harvests resources.
  — In-Game Description 
The Mining Station is the most common FOB on every War Zone. Its function is self-explanatory; it collects resources in a mining deposit at a fixed rate overtime. Upgrading increases the collection rate by 20%, up to twice the rate per hour. Once the Mining Deposit is expired, it will refund the player the exact build cost depending on its level. It will only give resources to the own player who deployed it, not for the whole alliance.

Bunker Edit

FOB-Pic-Bunker

This Forward Operating Base is one tough nut to crack, for when you need to hold the line.
  — In-Game Description 

Bunkers are defensive FOBs and very simple to use. They only defend an area or territory on the player or alliance's choosing, such as insertion points, borders or their own base. After certain FOBs were adjusted in terms of defense, Bunkers are now viable as a front-line defense with reinforcement FOBs behind them.

FOB-Pic-Airfield

Infantry Reinforcement Edit

FOB-PicInfantryReinforcement

This Forward Operating Base will send additional infantry to defend your bases.
  — In-Game Description 

Reinforcement FOBs can defend your base or other FOBs you own by sending their respective units on an assigned direction. This ability can share within your members' base or FOB. Their spawn time is 30 seconds and will start once you deploy your units.

Infantry FOBs, in this case, are the first defenders you can unlock for the world map. They do well against players using a full platoon of air such as Cobras, but not much for ground units.

Armor Reinforcement Edit

FOB-Pic-ArmorReinforcement

This Forward Operating Base will send additional armor to defend your bases.
  — In-Game Description 

Armor FOBs are substitute reinforcements for players who have not unlocked Chopper FOBs yet. It is very beneficial to low-mid level alliances, but it is completely useless against a full platoon of Helicopters.

Chopper Reinforcement Edit

FOB-PicChopperReinforcement

This Forward Operating Base will send additional choppers to defend your bases.
  — In-Game Description 

Chopper FOBs are the most popular among lvl 25 and above players because of how high the stats Helicopter units have and how defended they are. This FOB is a must have as it can benefit your alliance greatly.
