Enyo nailed it. Variants are fun. Sometimes you get fragged, cause you don't know how to use it, but that's half the fun....

Several of the manta variants have some good uses, the Wyvern is quite useful in Magic Isle... And the fireflies are fun in Gun$hop.

A Falcon that shoots Ion tank blasts would also be "useful" for whoever was driving it. When adding a new vehicle to a map, some points to consider are:

- Does this vehicle have a specific purpose in this map? (Ex: AA truck on Slated World)
- How does it affect the balance of power? (Don't put a stock scorpion on Minus, or Mino in Tyrant)
- Is it fun to drive?
- Is it fun to fight against?
- Does it have weaknesses that can be exploited by savvy players? (Mino's movement abilities, Hurricane can't shoot something next to it, etc.)
- Is its movement speed broken? (Wyvern, Falcon on small maps)
- Does it belong to a rival server? (RMD vehicles)
- Does it have game-breaking bugs? (Airpower stuff, LIP vehicles)

More MegaBadgers please, not the wimpy one on Randomizer but the big kid’s one from the map of the same name.

- Is it fun to drive? It’s not sluggish like the mino (driving an oil tanker). You can kick start it into hyper speed, plus it’s agile.

- Is it fun to fight against? Hehe, F yea, love to get under it with another reg badger, tilts up and Mega driver can’t aim to hurt u. Or knock it around, it’ll do somersaults. Gang up on it.

- Does it have weaknesses that can be exploited by savvy players? When it bounces from a direct hit, the driver may fall out, that’s when u steals it. Plus it bounces high when hit, hilarious to watch, and if ur in a punishing mood, blow it out of the sky before it touches down.

- Is its movement speed broken? It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

I'm here to whine about the tiamat on this map.

I worked on killing that thing for nearly an entire round with no success. With a link tank healing them it's practically invincible.

What's the best way to kill this effin thing.

Wave Flak. You can do it in one pass.

Try to land on it and fire the flak across the top of the vehicle so the waves are hitting in it. Basically fire it squatted down so the fire is close to the top but not hitting it with the projectile.

The Short Circuit is also a great vehicle to use against a Tiamat.

The camera things on the new SPMA are still messed up and still frustrating AF.

Do you take damage yourself when doing this?

And whoever designed the slow hoverbadger and the badger mark II should be castrated with a rusty knife.

You don't unless you jump in front of the projectile. The levi can still get you, but you can land out of the way of most of it's fire.
