View Full Version : A Lack of Tanks?

I played the demo probably four times yesterday, each of which on Advanced (one time on Normal,) but I saw the Tank only once.

Did anyone else have a total lack of Tanks in their demo so far?

I had more tanks. I just played three games, both chapters each, and I had 4 tanks total. I was playing on advanced too.

I've had a Tank on almost every playthrough.

That's pretty lame.

Sure, the wandering witches are cool--and I am grateful for having gotten one nearly every playthrough so I can get used to them--but I want to fight more Tanks than I've had.

Can the demo track playthroughs? It seems like each time I played, the weapons increased in awesomeness and a witch was added and then a tank.

^^ Maybe the new director can track the progression of a player's skill?

Anyways, I hereby retract my concern. I just played through the demo on my lunch break and there were two Tanks. One of them killed everyone, too.

Very nice.

That's funny, because I don't get very many witches. I guess we're just opposites.~

I have gotten tanks before, not much. Also every time I play single player, I get wandering witches, when I play with my buddy, no witches..it's weird.

The first 2 times I didn't get a Tank, then at the Park, at that big gazebo looking thing that has a gun, a melee weapon, and sometimes a explosive, I finally went to that place, found a Machete, and ran to the tank and landed 6 hits before he died.

They seem common enough on the second chapter. Same goes for witches.

Remember, several tanks are "hidden" and only initiate when you get near them, get line of sight on their center, or harm them. Theres been countless times in L4D1 i'd hear a tank, figure out hes in a room and be able to skip him completely. Same goes for L4D2.
So because of that, there could be more tanks than what we think, it just depends on if you explore every niche and cranny.
