    Hit Delay: 1.0
    Blocks: Fire and Melee

    Abilities: <top>
    • (Passive) Brutal Death: When the tank kills a survivor, it will brutally damage the survivor's corpse and cause the fear status on survivors nearby for 6 seconds. The damage to the corpse will cause the killed survivor to lose 30% maximum health permanently should they be resurrected.
    • (Passive) Sadist: Upon killing a survivor, the tank gains 70% damage resistance which decays over 10 seconds. Each dead body on the map will also give the tank an additional 4% damage resistance.
    • (Active) Directed Detonator: The tank will slam the ground, spawning a projectile to chase after the furthest survivor in its current line of sight. The projectile will stagger and deal 10% claw damage to survivors nearby while travelling. After 15 seconds or if the projectile reaches it's target, it will explode, dealing up to 50% claw damage to nearby survivors depending on the distance from the explosion.
    • (Active) Brutal Leap: The tank jumps into the air and returns to the ground after a small delay, causing an explosion that deals up to 50% claw damage to nearby survivors depending on the distance.
    • (Passive) Penetration: The tank ignores defense.
    • (Passive) Fear of death: The tank punches cause fear status for 3 seconds.
    • (Passive) Crippling Fear: If the tank punches a feared target, they will not be knocked away.
    • (Passive) Incremental Power: The tank gains 200 claw damage every 45 seconds that passes.
    • (Passive) Taunt Resist: The tank ignores any aggro overriding effects.
    • (Passive) No survival: The tank gains move speed every second it hasn't killed a survivor. It's move speed resets once it does.
    • (Active) Brutal Parasite: The tank plants a biological entity into the survivor's back that will quickly eat their flesh. The survivor takes 300 HP damage per second. The other survivors must shoot the parasite to free their friend. If a survivor dies with the parasite it will quickly jump into the closest survivor available (Radius: 400).

    Additional Information:
    The Awakened Brutal Tank is one of the strongest tanks out there that is part of the Awakening Scenario back when V1.8 was released. It used to be able to heal from the dead bodies on the map but it was since changed to have damage resistance gain instead.

    Tips for this tank: <top>
    • The fight with this tank becomes much easier when you are in the water, as you'll be able to move around a lot quicker than normal. Be sure to fight this tank along the water on the east side of the beach so that the other infected take more time to reach you.
    • Don't be afraid to heal if you know that you are about to die from the tank, that is if you don't want your Guardian Moustachio / Guardian Dispenser Buffs to be activating just yet.
    • The tank is vulnerable to being electrocuted when inside the water, so be sure to get him with an Electric Frag Grenade every minute or so. That way you'll have an easier time avoiding some of his abilities or by preventing the tank from getting near the survivors when he gets occasionally stunned for a few short moments.
