Tanki Online’s arsenal of hugely creative weaponry delivers deep and rich gameplay

AlternativaPlatform introduces nine turrets of ultimate destruction

Perm, 24th April, 2014 – AlternativaPlatform’s hugely successful 3D MMO Tank Action title ‘Tanki Online’ is going from strength to strength in Europe! With well over 41 million registered users worldwide, a constant stream of community-driven updates and a dedicated development team you can see why the popular F2P title is growing at an exponential rate! Today AlternativaPlatform introduce some of the weapons (turrets) gamers can utilise in Tanki Online.

Tanki Online

There are nine different turrets available, each upgradable through four different levels or “modifications” (M0 – M1 – M2 – M3). Each subsequent modification gets unlocked once you achieve a specific rank so it’s impossible to get everything straight away. Players can also use “microupgrades” to improve certain parameters of their current modification more quickly. Basic microupgrades (MUs) are inexpensive and quick to implement. They are available at any rank and will instantly help a player gain the edge over enemies on the battlefield.

Once in game, players will be constantly unlocking new weapons and their modifications which means that soon after starting, players will be immersing themselves deep in gameplay utilising all the destructively creative turrets available. Every turret has a unique capability and range therefore it’s very important to choose the right turret to support the environment, your chosen play style and also to be aware of the equipment used by your teammates.

The tutorial level of Tanki Online gives a preview of how some of the more advanced weapons play, but when you start the game proper you begin with a basic medium calibre tank gun called ‘Smoky’.

Some of the more creative weapons you can use include the ‘Isida’ – a nano technology based weapon which alters the very fabric of your opponents tank while healing your own, ‘Ricochet’ – fires a cloaked plasma charge which can bounce off walls allowing you to damage tanks out of your visibility range, ‘Freeze Gun’ – slows down the manoeuvrability of enemy tanks and ‘Twins’ – rapid firing double barrel plasma guns.

The full roster of turrets includes:

Smoky – Basic all-rounder turret that significantly improves with each upgrade, the best option for risk-takers which can give a critical

damage and simply one-shot the enemy tank

Shaft – Sniper-based turret designed for distance warfare

Firebird – Flamethrower turret capable of massive damage at short range, damage from this turret continues over time as an enemy tank burns

Railgun – Ultra-powerful at any range utilising depleted uranium shells, slow to recharge

Thunder – Splash damage specialist turret able to devastate several tanks at once

Isida – Fires short range nanomass blasts which destroys enemies and also heals allies if you shoot your teammates, essential in clan battles

Twins – Double-barrel plasma guns, rapid firing, no need to reload, best at medium distance

Ricochet – Able to bounce a charge off any surface dealing critical damage to unseen enemies

Freeze Gun – Uses a Freon blast to damage and slow down an enemy tank
