    This is a small update introducing 4 tanks to the infected fauna. The update also involves a reformation on the "Bloody Tank". In addition, the "Drainer Tank" has been removed due to its relation with server crashes.

    -Witch Curse: While the ability is active, 4 witches will appear cursing
    the nearby area. Survivors inside the curse radius while it's in progress will
    experiment a 50% speed reduction. Once the the curse is completed, nearby
    survivors will receive 300HP damage and will have a 7% chance of getting
    cursed. A cursed survivor will experiment 1000% additional damage from all
    sources for 5 seconds.
    -Body Absorption: The tank will kill and absorb the common infected nearby to heal
    for 500HP for each common trapped in the spell. Radius: 1000.
    -Helpers: The tank will spawn multiple jockeys that are unable to use their abilities
    and will not damage the survivors. However, each time one of the slave jockeys hit a
    survivor, the tank will heal for 60HP.
    Fighting Advices:
    -Do not bile the tank as that will benefit the tank's active ability "Body Absorption".
    -Kill the slave jockeys as soon as possible to prevent the tank from healing.
    -Stay away from the tank when the curse is in progress.
    -Help incapacitated teammates as quick as possible to avoid them from dying too quick.
    -When low in health, the tank will start calling for backup. Get a group of survivors to take care of the incoming special and common infected while the others fight the tank.

    I saw the ghost and ice yesterday, cool stuff! What about a tank that ignites with fire whoever throws a molotov at it lol
  3. HI, HC

    Thanks for the new tanks. Was fun fighting them.

    For the Ghost Tank which is supposed to have vomit immunity, it can be biled. And the team could kill the tank without much difficulty.
    Would be nice if I couldn't see it biled. Thanks.

    Many thanks for the new tanks HC!

    And I knew the Bloody was different in some way, after the team got wrecked by them twice, it seems the bloody is now a formidable tier 2.

    Oh, and rest in pieces Drainer Tank, you will (not) be missed.

    Nice update! thanks HC :)

    By normal logic, fire (molotov) should do extra damage to ice tank xD

    I think it's important to note that the hit interval on other tanks (regular, para) has decreased. I noticed that when I had a regular tank hitting an incapped player. Also noticed when I had one chasing me where I would stop and back off when it was time for him to swing at me. The only downside to this is it becomes even harder for a low level player to pick up someone. Doesn't matter much to me.

    I noticed that the fire rate has increased a lot... Also I notice the common infected a little slower...
