Default Fire Tank
Reply With Quote


Played Red Planet the other day and was able to use that Omni Fire tank to kill a bunch of people. Can we take that fire tank and put it on the MTMU maps, or modify the crappy fire tank on the MTMU maps so people will actually use it? I know the bad fire tank is on the MTMU Evo RC6 is it on any other maps? I believe the main problem with it is that it has no splash damage.

Agreed.

The Fire Tank on RedPlanet has always been a threat... Replace all other fire tanks with that one.

The bad firetank is on all the older maps. The more recent maps such as Desert Junkyard and Nevermore-TMU-2013 all have the useful firetank.

The fire tank is fine. Someone explain to me the point of the Ballista. A sniper tank on all these foggy maps? Can't see anyone until they can hit you too. Negates the "sniping ability" and with only 500hp it's easy to beat. Junkyard is the only map I've seen this tank successful. The fog is not as bad in this map.

The Ballista seems to work well on Dria-TMU along with the rail tank as a sniping vehicle. However, that means you have one less player going around building nodes.

I disagree. It's slow, weak and has to stay on flat level ground. I've tried to use it to zoom in on the hill where the mino likes to camp with no success. Too foggy. Beside the way the Dria map is laid out, with the two embattled nodes in the lake bed, it forces you move close to the front line where you'll be easily destroyed with only 500hp. Not as agile as the rail gun either.

If you park it in certain locations, it's absolutely deadly. My second favorite vehicle on the map.
