Should I buy arena vehicles each type or not?

Recommended Posts

tasic89

I want that trinket win on theme... But it's like only type of vehicles with whom I can win are CUSTOM bike and sasquatch... In like 80% of game modes.

 

I had all nightmare versions of cars, but... It seems like I will never use that Scarab in arena.

Confusing post. You want that trinket win on theme? There are 3 of them gained by playing games in that theme not using vehicles of that theme. So you win games with future shock theme using a nightmare deathbike... You get the future shock trinket. Same for apocalypse. What's the scarab got to do with it?

For pretty much any arena war modes you just need three vehicles:

 

Deathbike, Sasquatch and ZR380.

 

Deathbike for Buzzer Beater, Hot Bomb, Bomball and maybe Carnage(though I don't recommend it).

 

Sasquatch for Carnage, Here Comes the Monsters and Game Masters.

 

ZR380 for the rest(it does specially well in Wreck It).

 

If you want all trinkets, then you will need to have all 3 variants of those vehicles, preferably fully tuned...So you're looking into a 10 million investment, give or take.

 

Don't bother with the Scarab, Brutus, Bruiser, Cerberus, they're crap. 

 

The Slamvan, Impaler, Imperator, Dominator and Issy Classic are nothing special and you're better off saving your money by not buying then.

Looks like I bamboozled myself, you don't need to have all 3 variants of the vehicles, a single vehicle is enough to win all trinkets...Just get a Deathbike then.

I think that you need future bike, apoc. bike and nightmare bike to win that trinket.  Scarab is just an example of bad and useless vehicle in Arena.

Don't buy all themed Arena vehicles just for this.

If I get it right, you're after the trinkets for winning on different themes, and thinking about buying the better (for winning chance) vehicles in all three themes only for this.

It's easier and will save you money if you just trade some wins with someone, and then you can win with given, stock vehicles too.

No you guys are making this so much more complicated than it is. Go read the arena war trophy thread! Quote:

 

Republican Space Ranger figurine

Won events set in the Future Shock theme ten times.

 

Princess Robot Bubblegum figurine

Won events set in the Nightmare theme ten times.

 

Skull

Won events set in the Apocalypse theme ten times.

 

See how it says won events set in the theme not won using a vehicle of that theme?

 

You may consider making a playlist of hot bomb 1,2 and 3 and set each to one round. Invite a friend and have them suicide instantly. Play the playlist 10 times using whatever vehicle you want and boom 3 trinkets unlocked. It's that simple, I repeat you DO NOT need a future shock or nightmare vehicle to WIN a future shock or nightmare themed event. All the arena events ending 1 are apocalypse theme, 2 future shock, 3 nightmare.

You are sure about it ? 100% ? You own that trinket that way ?

Also unlocked them when I only had one custom Arena Contender, an Apocalypse Dominator, but traded wins with friends.

I'm skill level 20, sponsorship level 155, and have all trophies, so I'm an arena war expert.  On the vehicle selection screen, never ready up right away. Wait to see what people pick, and then pick a better vehicle.  E.g.  deathbike in flag war, but if there are all death bikes on the other team, equip a zr380 with kinetic mines.
Here are the minimum vehicles you need to dominate any event:

  • DeathBike: Bomb ball, Flag War, hot bomb, buzzer beater, games masters, tag team, wreck it, carnage
    • Equip full jump, full boost, guns
    • Note deathbike is susceptible to drones and kinetic mines. Be careful using it in tag team, and games masters. 
    • Personally, I always use deathbike, but somestimes I will take a drone. Just never stop moving.
  • ZR380:  Anywhere you feel you might get taken out on a death bike (wreck it, tag team, games masters)
    • Equip full jump, boost guns, armor, and kinetic mines 
  • Issi: Here come the monsters
    • Full jump, and boost, emp mines, guns, and kinetic launcher
  • Sasquatch: Here come the monsters, carnage
    • Equip full jump, boost, kinetic launcher, and emp mines
  • Cerebrus: Bomb ball
    • Optional, if you want to play defense on bomb ball, buy this
    • At least fully equip the armor or youre dead quick.
