Description

The Tank is one of the special infected in R2D. All Tanks appear to be bigger, stronger and larger then the other zombies. The Tank can be purchased for 300$ and the kill reward is 100$

Tanks. As the name implies, Tanks are devastating, big and tough. The Tank is big shaped and a grey-ish zombie that can create chaos in its wake and throw pure concrete towards its victims, which can, and will, lead to insta-kill if it hits a survivor. Due to its big body, the Tank's shirt cannot be seen so it's considered "ripped-off" from the body mass, but the pants can be seen. They are muscled enough to pack a punch that deals loads of damage towards the survivor and they are unstoppable if they are in a massive group of 3 or more Tanks. They are also a damage sponge, but all Tanks are scared of many things. Some of things are the Minigun, the RPG and the Famas F1. A well time Grenade or Chinalake blast can also fling a Tank off the map. The Tank is considered the devastator class of the game.
