Roblox has its fair share of experiences to wonderfully discover, from the iconic Tower of Hell to Project New World, there truly is something for everyone and with the experience of Base Raiders, you will feel like the king or queen of the castle, I know I certainly did! So now’s the time to take a glance at the most important things you should know about the game before you hop in for the first time. Developed by Base Productions, the game has a long history with over 58.1 million visits as of the time of writing, a substantial number of energetic players indeed! Will you be the next player to dive into this exhilarating experience?

The Key Details for Base Raiders — The Bottom Line Up Front

Base Raiders centers on building bases and defending them from other players. Of course, you can also take the fight to your opponents by raiding and destroying their bases. You will create traps for your base and earn cash that can fuel your many building activities. If you are like me, you will probably look to create the greatest base which you can defend and take much pride in having built.

In terms of one of the best methods of earning cash, you can raid the other bases by venturing into any of the other bases. Once you have made it into the base with great precision, you will locate a structure almost appearing to be gleaming in the heat of the sun with a golden color. Simply stand in the center of that structure and then wait a short amount of time, around 5 seconds. After you have been able to do that, you will have raided the opponent and you will earn cash based on the other player’s general flow of earnings.

Base Building — Your Structure To Defend!

When you first boot up the game, they will give you an option whether you want to join the main server or a new player server, which will allow you a ramp for the slight learning curve linked to the experience. Once you have chosen a server, you will opt to choose what base you want to start with. There are a few starter bases to select from. The templates are:

  • None — Start with no base template and begin building the way you want to
  • Castle
  • Rocket
  • Office Building
  • Pyramid
  • Sci-fi Base

With that vast range of unique starter bases, you certainly will spend an amount of time deciding! I know I certainly did! Once you have chosen a base, you can get started with the main experience of the game. On the screen, you will see an ‘edit’ button that you can press to open up the building menu. There are various items that you can select from for building within the base. Within the edit menu, there are a host of items and building materials you can use for your build. This list will allow you to browse through all the items and work out what to attempt achieving or using first. There are nine distinct categories for items and for clarity, this list will discuss some of the more important items in some categories, to start with, there is the ‘New’ category:


  • Bin — 1000 base cash. This item is just a simple garbage bin.
  • Dead Tree — Costs 2000 base cash and is a scenery item simply to place some trees throughout your base with no leaves.

Save Slots for Bases

If you have spent a lot of time building a base you may be worried that you will lose your progress within the experience whenever you go away from the game, however, this will not happen. Thankfully, there is a save system implemented for Base Raiders and it is a very in-depth one which is excellent to know! I was certainly thankful that I wouldn’t lose the progress I had gathered from the experience.

There are three save slots that you can access for free and throughout these slots, you can make different bases for each one meaning you can create three unique bases! Furthermore, when you are looking at the save slots, you can rotate your base 90 degrees or 180 degrees if you want to. Of course, you may be wanting to create more than three bases and for that, there is another save slot you can purchase for 250 Robux.

Selling Blocks and Items for Base Cash

The process of earning cash in the game can sometimes take a while and so I have found that selling some items in your base can be a great way of getting some extra cash. Whenever you are utilizing the edit menu, you can press the ‘sell’ button and you will now be able to select blocks and/or items that you want to sell for cash.

Before you sell an item or block, you can hover over it and you will find out how much it’s worth and if it will be great to sell for cash. Either way, if you are looking for a quick way to get more cash, selling blocks and items can be one of the best methods!

Painting — Base Colors of Your Choosing

If you are someone who likes customizing everything that they are near then the paint mode will be something that you are using a lot within the experience. When you are within the edit menu, simply press the ‘paint’ button and a lot of colors will appear for you. From here you can press on the color you want and then select what you want to paint and automatically the color will update for you.

The Combat

If you think you will be attempting to raid bases a lot, you will likely want to learn a lot about combat and how to get an advantage over your enemies. The first tip that I’d give you is t always shoot for the head when possible, especially with weapons that aren’t explosives. The Assault Rife can be a great weapon for this as there is a high rate of fire and you can target it with not too much recoil for the weapon.

It should also be noted that many player bases will have a lot of elevation and in turn, there will be enemies firing at you from above. Simply make sure to utilize as much cover as you can while navigating across the land to other bases.
