Dive out in front of it to attempt to disable it's mobility via your mangled corpse in it's tracks.

40mm's and hand grenades do damage it, albeit it takes a while

if you took one of the global unlocks, you'll have c4

Freyar

C4 would be your best option, but if you can't kill it, leave it alone.

if you can jump on top of the tank you can throw a nade in to the a hole in the top of the tank, never done it before but i assume it would kill the drivers that is a big if though

Ahaha I actualy did that today and the nade just bounced off the hatch.


So 40mm needs to be buffed to take out tanks

No they don't, thats why Engineers exist.

Grenades are lethal against infantry because they send shrapnel in all directions, against armor though grenades don't do a thing. The only reason they even do a little damage is because it's a game.

Spot it, and tag it w/ a tracer dart for your engineer team-mates.

Hitting it w/ the 40mm will also do a little damage as well.

Well, I hope you have the Thompson or a Shotgun with C4 with the explosive mod. Otherwise, pray to GOD you are not a Medic because it's the only class that can't take out vehicles. Otherwise I usually tag him, run away to find an Engineer and supply him with ammo to take out the tank. But from all the games I played so far I still say Medic is the most popular class.

Classes by Popularity
1. Medic
2. Recon
3. Assault
4. Engineer

Chances of taking out an enemy vehicle 10%.

Spot it.
Tracer-dart it.
Get on an AT Gun.
Pick a weapon without an attachment and choose C4.
Kill an engineer repairing the tank, take his kit (or take any dead-mans kit near you that could help out).
etc., etc.

In other words, you can do more than run and shoot grenades while screaming.

In BC2, the physics and game engine is the best in the world

1. You can throw a grenade right into the tanks firing thing and blow their ability to fire

2. You can grenade it's wheels and break it's ability to drive in a straight line

3. Tanks with entry points on top can fit a grenade and kill everyone inside, also destroying the tank.

:P

All these things i've done in real life, when i went to war with the terminators and they had tanks for some reason

O by the way, if you're an assault and there's a engi squad member, wouldn't it be smart to throw a good nifty ammo pack and let him deal with it?

Whenever i go engi, i take out tanks so fast...though i do attack from behind...i like it behind :P

Launch a 40mm grenade at it, chances are that the driver might panic and drive away/jump out of the vehicle. Heck, you might even kill it if the tank is already badly damaged.

Should I feel bad that I've actually done that, because the engies on my team would rather try and snipe people on the other side of the map than kill the tank 20 feet away from them?

No, problem NOT solved. Most engineers rather use their rockets on infantry than on a tank. God damn that Carl Gustav.

I was in a squad of 3 engineers, we were 10 feet away from an enemy tank, they rather blow buildings and infantry up high than the tank.

♥♥♥♥ SAKE ENGINEERS, GET A GRIP!

Also, I ALWAYS find a good spot, throw down an ammo box, and start spamming that tank with nades and grenade launchers, and always have my main weapon ready incase an engineer pops out and tries to repair the tank. How come NOONE ever shoots the engineer fixing the tank?

God damnit. Also, 8 grenade launchers kills a tank.

03-15-2010, 08:06 AM
you stay out of the way

you are a class designed to kill infantry and resupply your teammates

that said if you have some initiative and theres a TOW emplacement or dead engi around then get to it, otherwise the best you can do is noob tube the tank which would take years to destroy it

and most likely end up with you dead

just accept the limitations and role of your class and move on tbh

Padraic
03-15-2010, 08:15 AM
It's a tank. This means that a) it probably has no second gunner, and if it does, he will get out to repair the tank...Muahahaha, b) there will be no Engineers to repair it otherwise (because as an Assault, you will kill them before running away...right?, and c) you will nade his behind or front - whichever side is OPPOSITE to your own Engineers, thus distracting the driver and gunner (if any) and giving your engineers a better chance to hit the magic 3 RPGs needed to blow up a tank.

In other words - only sissies run away. You Engineers need cover, resupply, and someone in body armour to flap their arms like a nade-spamming chicken as a distraction so the Engineer isn't one-shotted.

Yes, Engineers need SUPPORT. In a battle between a Tank and one Engineer, most likely, the Engineer loses. We are not a magic class. Please support us! :P

It's called rock-paper-scissors.


Armored > Assault
Engineer > Armored




This is a TEAM game - learn to ask for help if you're playing a class who get's into a situation where you are currently useless.


OR at the very least, find a hiding spot and SPOT the armored for your teammates to take it out.

If a single assault could solo a tank so easily there would be no point using tanks.

Ramfackled
03-15-2010, 09:40 AM
1. Spot the tank
2. plant a tracer dart
3. put c4 on it
4. if you don't have c4 run up to the side of the tank, pretend your putting c4 on it, and hopefully the driver jumps out, and you can steal the tank.

Really? I have taken out plenty of tanks with C4 as assault. I gotten close to 500 points in doing so with all the bonuses.

Beautiful thing.

Plus I always dart it first just in case I fail.

Flank it, and throw the C4 on the ♥♥♥ end, quickly run away and click click boom :)

Be quick because your C4 can be shot and you kill the tank and yourself. (Sadly, most of time you won't get any points)

Tanks are a fun target.

I like to play assault with the assault weapons, not the global unlocks. So for most assault players (who play like that), destroying a tank isn't an option unless you find yourself a tank/turret.

03-15-2010, 10:30 AM
Erm, take a downed kit, or if the enemy is playing heavily on armor go assault but with one of the kitless weapons (such as the SPAS or Thompson) and C4? Assault can carry C4, they just lose the grenade launcher.

What I like to do to tanks when im a engie, use the repair tool. most drivers freak out when they get tagged with that first rpg. use the repair tool and I think most of the time the driver thinks he is being healed. then when he learns what is happening he reverse away from you and a quick switch to the launcher and a sweet hip shot you won.

It would be nice if engies knew how to use their rockets on a darted target. The times I have darted a tank (as a medic) only to have the engie run out in front of the tank to try and hip shoot it. They don't even have to able able to see the tank to be able to hit it once it has been darted, only be in range of the tank to lock on. I have made shots (as an engie) through holes in roofs and other silly shots.

What is even worse some of these idiots have b1tched at me for not reviving them after they have died and the tank is still there because of their fail. :mad:
