I experimented with the gold chest to try out all the skills (or nearly).
My typical set up is upgrading food stash since at the beginning I have loads of food (I dont get any dmg since I am playing mostly mosquito the first few waves and sometimes crab to crush mobs or to "unstuck" me if needed). Then I upgrade either a main weapon bazooka or mosquito main "pistols". Then the MG tower of the termite.
At the "end" I have the full upgraded guns of Crab and mosquito (didnt upgrade the termite weapon, he is build only), I have the crab retreat hole which I skilled pretty early, the elbow smash which I get quite early as well. Then the boom ability which pushes ennemy back.
On the mosquito I have roulette and banditos and sometimes something else but not sure what is good for my build.
On the termite I have in this order MG tower, railgun, auotcannon and satellite in this order.
My food stash is protected by max zapper, max MG turret, max sniper and the 4th one it depends, often I go with a second MG turret.
My termite turrets are placed at the intersection between far-right room entrance and far right corridor, some quite near to the food stash and some halfway between both. If it gets harder I concentrate more towers near the stash since I can only reach the far-right room with lots of difficulties, so I mostly have to give up on this after wave 30-40.
I always play "normal" difficulty. Tried a few times "hard" and far some reason I didn't notice a huge difference (or maybe I had just a good run lol).
Oh it would be pretty interesting for me to know the tower ranges, especially those termite towers with or without satellite, with or without termite near the towers, etc.
