Gameplay

In uTanks you select one of four various tank colors. This will be your team. If you select another color, your rank will be reset making you become very loyal to your specific team. The gameplay in general consists of traversing a large battlefield in your tank, collecting various upgrades, keeping your fuel level up, placing mines, and destroying the opposing team. The game runs perpetually, with battles constantly occurring on open battlefield. There are no "matches" or "games", simply battles happening on a battlefield. War never changes.

The Basics

Factions- There are four factions in uTanks, each represented by a different color: red, blue, orange and purple. Each faction fights against the other three for higher rank and higher positions on the leaderboards.

Fuel- This is the equivalent of health in uTanks. It is also used for use of basic functions such as shooting, planting mines, and teleporting. Fuel can be found by radaring the area. If you run out of fuel during a battle your tank will be destroyed and you will respawn somewhere else on the map.

Equipment- During the course of the game you'll come across various equipment. By picking up this equipment you receive either a new type of weapon or more uses for your radar mechanism. This can be found in boxes on the field by radaring.

General Equipment Capacity- Often abbreviated GEC, maximum carrying capacity for equipment.

Promotion Points- Often abbreviated PP, accumulated by attacking and deactivating enemy tanks. PP is required to rank up and to climb the leaderboard. The more PP you accumulate, the higher your ranking on the leaderboards will be.

Map- The map allows you to view the position of enemy tanks and fuel barrels of 500 or higher. Clicking on the map teleports you to the coordinates clicked location.

Mines- Mines are used to prevent an enemy from moving or teleporting to an area, such as fuel barrel or equipment locations. Enemy tanks may not teleport onto mines, and attempting to drive over mines will halt the enemy tank and cause damage to it. They will not hurt tanks of the same color, however. If the mines are of a different color they will be hidden unless revealed by radar. After being revealed, they can be destroyed by shooting with a standard shot.

Radar- The radar is used to discover new fuel barrels, equipment, and enemy mines.

Equipment

Armor Shield- Nullifies damage of one enemy shot

Dual Shot- Fires two shots at once, inflicting double the damage

Missile Shot- Capable of firing over mountains and rocks, 1.5x normal damage

Homing Missile- Locks on to the enemy and follows them to their next position

Extra Radar- Boosts normal radar to include the entire viewport

Target Beacon- Indicates the position of the targeted enemy on the map
