should I buy a tank?

Recommended Posts

The Wandering Hunter

it's really really sh*t

it's hydra fodder

it's buzzard fodder

it's savage fodder

it is rediculously vulnerable to the anti air homing launcher

the spawns are f*cked

the hydra is better

it's a target on your back

 

but it would look cool if I cargobobbed it onto my yacht....

I'm not sure

 

plus I could drop it on someone

 

it is literally the only armed pv I don't own

Only if you have money to piss away..

It can be fun and if you are smart you can do some serious killing with it before it blows up, but it's been useless since Cockstar ruined the Blow Up 2 glitch for RP

well , it's strongest vehicle

you get offense and defense at cost of speed and agility . good thing the catepillar track makes it good on offroad while reversing had better traction . running over a vehicle also can flatten and destroy them

 

also the cannon can be " multi-usage tool " . so if you want to play car-golf , getting the tank out while stuck , blugeoning , obstacle clearing and so , just swing the cannon

 

in combat , it's effective on open environment but easy target for jets

 

this MBT is nigh-unstoppable in term of " physical combat " , not even dump truck can flinch it ( and it would badly damage the truck , instead ) . a single flick of turret can kill an NPC driver ( one from traffic ) , heavily dent the vehicle as well being able to tip even taller such as trucks . the only thing that tank couldn't physically overpower is Train

It is fun, as long as you don't take it too seriously and expect it to last forever. It's decent for Criminal Damage (if you use your head as well as the tank) and can turn some dull missions into good fun.

 

My No.1 use for it is killing wall breachers that either have bounties on them or are using the wall breach to get "safe" kills. Most of them can be destroyed by a pummelling tank, and most of the other players usually leave you to it, once they realise what you're doing. I usually do what I'm there for without killing anyone else, and then drown it when I'm done.

 

If you can afford it then stop asking and buy it. What's the worst that could happen?

That's a good point. I never thought of that.

No. You are always in a jet and won't use it.

I agree with this. It really depends on how much money you have, like most things in GTA.

 

If money is an issue, then you should probably wait (on buying it) until it's not.

 

If money is not an issue, then sure man go for it. The tank can be fun while it lasts. And whatever shortcomings it has don't matter so much because hey, money's not an issue.

its decent fun to take it out in invite only session and see how long you can last against the police with it. even more fun if you have some friends with you that also have their tanks out.

Tanks make soloing certain missions a piece of piss. I do LSC in mine all the time. Rooftop Rumble's another.

Only if you have enough money.

 

I rarely ever use my tank. Bought one on the PS3 days, haven't touched it much since.

I bought one, recently. It comes in handy when you're a bodyguard during piracy prevention or executive search.

Exactly. People don't know you're in a tank because they only see the 'bounty' icon on the map :)

 

And 'Executive Search' in VIP mode is another example. You're off radar AND in a tank!

 

The tank can be very, very useful (at times).

Honestly I'd say no. Armor has been decreased with all the patches and it's really easy to destroy it just with 4 rockets, let's not talk about kamikaze Insurgents. Unless you want the whole Pegasus collection or have spare cash, don't buy it

I just use mine to hide in if I'm a bodyguard and the VIP is doing Hostile Takeover. Gets the cops off my ass the easy way as I can't take off in anything fast enough to fly away before they fill me with bullets.

Haha yeah..... except somebody's bound to come in a jet and quickly ruin your fun.

Buy tank

1) go underground

2) Hear the complaining

3)Watch multiple hydra fly above you

4) laugh at them

 

Profit!!!

Do you already own a jet or attack copter? If not then no, get that first. Tanks are a lot of fun, but the nerf hurt it quite a bit.

Steal one from zancudo to try before you buy. Just go somewhere elevated close to zancudo, and take a single sniper shot at a rhino patrolling the fence. Get one wanted star and next thing you know, they spawn outside the fence.

 

They're fun for half an hour once in a while, but the weakness of armour combined with the tank icon ruin the fun, and the damage incurred by running over vehicles, make any tank fun very short lived .

 

Cargobob and tank on other hand can be great fun. With a bounty, even better. You can kill a lot of people before they realise your tank is on a building roof, or with a bounty, that you're in a tank at all.

Exactly how do you kill people on a building roof? You can't aim down you know, and most people are on the ground.
