Walkthrough Guide on Steampunk Tower
Upgrades Build #1 focus on playing Machine Guns and Lightnings. I find it most effective to clear from stage 1 to stage 13 pretty easily with three stars. I have tested it and should work fine. Keep this in mind that you always have to upgrade your Machine Guns first then Lightnings because you want your Machine Guns to do as much damage as possible. Use "The Eye" when you think your guns cannot handle or multiple guns are reloading during fights.

After clearing stage 13, it's time to change strategy. Now, reset and follow Upgrades Build #2 because most enemies in stages 14 and 15 are armored tanks and prototypes. They are strong and tanky... The only effective weapon available to slice through them is Saw Launchers. Lightning can stun enemies which are perfect for Saw Launchers to do more damage. Whenever you upgrade your gun to a better tier, it will automatically reload the ammo fully as well. So, it is recommended to upgrade those guns with low ammo first. This will help you save a little waiting time.

Try pairing up appropriate towers with each other to make up for each others' weaknesses. Heavy Gun and Lightning work well together because lightning canons provide excellent air cover that heavy guns lack, and heavy guns are effective against all ground units when upgraded, though I was not a big fan of heavy guns. Saws and Machine Guns work well together because machine guns possess the rapid fire needed to kill swarms of enemies, and both are decent vs. air.

I've tested out all the levels in order (from 1-15) using different combos of towers, or even 1 single tower. I usually do not use more than 2 per stage b/c that spreads the upgrades thin. When I say "works," I mean getting 3 stars. Here's what I found:
Mass lightning: Works on every stage that does not have Grand Walkers. Their stun ability gives them decent chance against Grand tanks and walkers.
Mass Machine Guns: Works on every stage that does not have Grand Walkers, although I did pull off 3 stars when I upgraded them all to Red Hornet (Path 2).
Mass Saws: Works on every stage except the first one. This surprised me because having 5 Saws on each side takes away their weakness of slow firing rate b/c you have a lot of them firing at once. Saws would be imbalanced if they fired a little faster.

The best combo I found was Saw and Lightning, usually 6 Saws, 4 Lightning. Lightning shreds all air and weak ground units and can stun big targets, while Saws deal with the big targets. You don't even need to steam strike on most levels if you use this strategy.

  1. Not bad, not bad. Lightning and Saw build can be used from stage 10 onward. Tip: Upgrading your guns will refresh the ammo, so it is recommended to upgrade guns with low ammo. This will help you save a little waiting time.

  4. The heavygun deals the most DPS out of any gun when fully upgraded to path 1, even more than the SAW upgraded on path 2 because it fires faster. That combined with its splash damage allows it to slaughter any ground forces out there. Be mindful of its lack of anti-air, which poses a problem when grand airships arrive.
