Any tells for explosive vehicles?
If there's one thing that screws me over in the arena, it's the opponents that go off like a bomb when they die. Anyone know if there's a way to tell which ones blow up? I usually try to just disable everyone, but sometimes that just isn't possible, or circumstances result in one of their "allies" causing them to go off.

The one with guns but made in steels will explode when it dies, usually it has iron/steel shield.
But the one made in woods with a canon and without any shield won't explode.

Ah; never noticed that before, but now that ya mention it I kinda recall that being the case. Thanks! :)
The exploding ones will also taunt you and tell you to finish them off. The others will beg for their lives.

For me that seems pretty random.
I've seen non-exploding ones demand death, and exploding ones begging for life.

The real way to tell what explodes and doesn't:
Wood helicopter: No explode.
Metal helicopter: Explode.

Works for me; and I guess that would make sense since the metal would make shrapnel.

usually they look like black stoves, most of the time those are explosive one way or another, they either shoot dynamite, or explode like it.

in arena levels 18+ they will be the steel ones with gun, rocket, or the fire/confuse bombs.

Meh when I played everything that wasn't wood made explodes. So I try to weak them and use a throwing weapon as the last hit.
Tapping them lightly with the tip of your weapon (if you're using one without a chain) is usually enough to finish them off while still maintaining enough of a distance to not be seriously injured by the explosion. I wouldn't recommend it on your first few victims in a long match if you aren't using a ruby, though.
Rezzing this to say: holy crap. How do you deal with all the damn explosives in lvl 18 arena?!
Forget the booby-trapped ones; about 60% of the enemies lob siege bombs & heavy rockets at point-blank range.
How do you guys survive?

IIRC the highest I ever got was close to 30. It basically boiled down to having to slow down the attacks and kinda charge in before pulling away to see if they lob anything first. That, combined with shields and a lifesteal gemmed weapon were pretty much my key to getting that far. Past that point I'd make dumb mistakes and explode myself. XD Hadn't played it much past when I originally made the thread. Really do need to fire it up again.

Yeah, talk about a blast from the past, holy jeez. I only just found out they're making Hammerfight 2, too! Hyped as ♥♥♥♥.

I can't read (what I assume is) Russian, though, so I don't know how legit it is.
