Avoid directly approaching or retreating from them, and fire only when fired upon.

Teal Tank

First appearing in Mission 5, teal tanks fire rocket-propelled, i.e. fast, shells that have no rebound.  They tend to aim at you directly when firing, even if you are moving.  They’re not good at evading shells that “lead” them, i.e. fired at where they are heading.  And their biggest weakness is the time it takes them to “reload” between firings.

Formidable at first sight, they are actually easily defeated (relatively speaking).  Just follow these two rules:

  1. Constantly move “sideways” relative to them. I.e. don’t move towards or away from them directly.  This ensures that when they fire at you, and they always fire at you, they will always miss you despite the high speed of their shells.

General strategy against yellow tanks? There is none!Yellow Tank

Yellow tanks love laying mines randomly and only fires shells when they are near you with a direct line of sight.  They move at a medium-fast speed, and move in straight lines but make random turns, which makes it difficult to hit them in a consistent manner.  Of all the enemy tanks, I hate these guys the most!  That’s because:

  • They lay mines like crazy all over the place, destroying the landscape (cork blocks) and consequently strategic locations (i.e. hiding places!).
  • They are hard to hit because:

Fight fire with fire!  Or use rebound shots.  They’re easier than you might think.Red Tank

Red (magenta) tanks rapid-fire ordinary shells with ordinary 1-rebound.  Moving at ordinary speed, they are very aggressive in seeking you out for a direct confrontation.  While they are mildly aware of and will evade your rebound shots somewhat, when you are in their direct line of sight, they will not evade your direct firings, but instead rapid-fire at you directly, which simultanesouly becomes their defense as their shells cancel out yours.

When applicable, rebound shots are as effective against them as any other tanks.  But what to do when they confront you directly?

Be opportunistic in using multiple strategies against them.Green Tank

Green tanks first appear in Mission 12 and are stationary, but their weapon is the most powerful in the entire game: rocket-propelled shells that rebound twice!  Visually, that’s a three-legged trajectory.  These tanks are deadly because they can not only accurately calculate 2-rebound trajectory to hit you, they can also lead you.

There is no single effective tactic against these guys.  Instead, different scenarios call for different tactics.  Since scenarios can change quickly in a game, that means you must be opportunistic.  Starting with the most likely scenario:
