G.I. Joe: War on Cobra is available right now, and it's a game of two halves that work together perfectly. In one half, you are raiding the bases of your enemies, preparing a massive conquest to take down all of their tools and supplies for the greater good. On the other hand, you're building up your base, to protect from marauding enemies tearing your buildings apart.

The fact is that these two halves work together just as well as the Cobra and Joe factions in this game. You can build up, and tear apart, both sides of good and evil very easily, meaning you can keep the rewards rolling in, even when you've got timers to count down on either side. Very nice indeed.

This mechanic, along with a bunch of others, can be used to make it far easier to open up cargo, build up your base, improve your units, and more. Or at least, far more palatable.

In this guide, we're going to run through what you need to know to get more units, build up your base, and open up as much cargo as possible so you're prepared to down everyone online. Just read on for these essential tips for G.I. Joe: War on Cobra.
