In this article I’ll talk about some general techniques in this game as well as some general strategies.  They have helped me reach Mission 100,  and I hope they’ll help you too!  (Your mileage may vary…)  Since techniques are vital to carrying out any strategies you have, we’ll talk about techniques first.  (Scroll down for general strategies, or for mission-specific strategies see List of Missions.)

Techniques:

  1. Lead the enemy tank, i.e. aim at where it is going instead of where it is at. This is the most basic technique next to aiming directly at your opponent.  It is effective in the most basic of circumstances, i.e. you’re trying to destroy a moving tank.  Obviously, this doesn’t apply to stationary tanks.

Missions beyond 20 are randomized, except for the 8 milestone missions 30, 40, …, 100.  Therefore, below are screenshots for missions 1 to 20, plus the 8 milestone missions, with links to the corresponding video captures and misison-specific strategy guides where available.

Randomized Missions

Each of the “randomized” missions feature a battlefield randomly picked from an earlier mission, which may be a milestone mission.  Interestingly though, a few milestone missions, such as mission 20, are never picked.  Furthermore, also randomized is the mix of enemy tank types and their initial placements.  However, one thing is never randomized – the number of enemy tanks in each mission is pre-determined and never changes.

Here’s a level that can be completed swiftly.  As soon as the level starts (not a second too late!), fire all 5 of your rounds successively, starting with the first aimed at the upper left brown tank, ending with the last at the lower right brown tank, with the other rounds in between.  If you’re lucky, that’s all it takes, taking out all 4 tanks in one blow.  If not, that will usually take out 2 or 3 tanks right away.

With or without this tactic, the main thing to pay attention to in this level is evading enemy fire by moving to the space in the “V” of the trajectory of enemy fire.   This is because you already start out near the corner and you don’t want to be further cornered!

 

This is where the rocket-propelled-shell-firing teal tanks appear.  Formidable at first sight, they are actually easily defeated.

In this level, the 2 tanks usually both fire a round at you right off the bet.  These rocket-propelled shells don’t rebound, and the trajectories of these initial shots usually form an X, crossing near you.  So start the level by moving down a little, and position yourself right under this X to avoid the shells.

Then, it is pure procedure.  Just follow the General Strategy against Teal Tanks.

Incidentally, the video above shows how not to fire fan-and-rebound rounds, which are the first 5 shots I made in this video.  You can see that the shells canceled each other out: Continue reading »
