[FAQ] • [doc]

Cockroach soldiers are giant insects found exclusively in the Stronghold of Player Safety. As a free-to-play monster, they offer a very consistent method of making money. Additionally, they are the source of carapace, used to craft carapace armour. They attack with melee and ranged, though the latter attack seems to be bugged at the moment.

Combat strategiesEdit

Cockroach soldiers used to be formidable opponents, but the Evolution of Combat has left them significantly weaker. As they have now a low amount of life points, all that you really need to bring is rune weapons or better along with low level food such as trout and use Revolution/Bars.
