Tanks in Survival
Why are they so damn hard to kill and is there anyway to disable them in survival mode or maybe lessen their numbers?

Honestly, m16 with explosive rounds, all 40 or so bullets wasted on the damn things head and it didnt die!!!!!!

They have 4000 hp, there are mods you can install(server side) that might do what you want...search for allied modders in google.

ok thanks man

45 rounds from sniper = dead tank
90 rounds from ak = dead tank
120 rounds from scar = dead tank

A good survival team will kill a tank in under 15 seconds

I suggest playing the Helm's deep custom map, the earlier tanks are much more manageable because of how far they need to run to reach you and how much fire power you got.

As m3ow suggested, tanks only have 4000 hp in survival and there maybe serverside mods (or even possibly custom mutations if you check the workshop) if you do want to get rid of the tanks from survival -but then it won't be much of a challenge.

As trash said, you can actually take tanks down relatively quickly, but that requires 3 or 4 survivors focusing on the tank (although they are designed to be taken down in a team effort). His numbers are a little off though, the ak does 58 damage a shot so it only takes 69 shots, and the scar does 44 damage a shot so it only takes 91 shots (sniper does 90 damage per shot -but the math is right for that). Fyi. Explosive ammo does +50% damage. so using the sniper with explosive ammo would do 135 damage per shot.

That in mind, as far as raw dps and effectiveness, if you have the option take the AK>Sniper>m16/scar (scar and m16 have similar dps and effectiveness).

Survival is designed to be played as a team, so you'll find you'll have a much easier time of it if you have all human players and 3 people focus the tank and 1 person clears horde/si so the team doesn't get caught up when fighting the tank. If you focus the tanks down you can take them down before the next one will spawn and get to gold fairly easily. The problem you're likely having is that you're not taking them down fast enough and this compounds your problem when another tank will spawn up before you've killed the last one.

Tanks will spawn 0:40, 1:55, 2:55, 4:25, 5:25, 5:35, 7:05, 7:45, 8:25 (there is a continuing pattern but this is all you need to keep in mind to get to the 10 minute gold mark. You can also only have 2 tanks spawn at any given time, so if you're killing tanks quickly enough you should only have a double around the 5:30 mark.

Thnx Guys, reached the 10 min mark for a few maps now. It probly dosent help though that i play with bots, only because whenever im on i can never find any servers.

There is a way. Go on L4Dmaps and download a mod called Urik Game Menu with Rayman's mutation mod, it adds several mutations, including one with commons only. If you don't want the enhanced UI, get Rayman's Mutation Mod standalone.

The joys of gaming in Australia. You should just start a public game of survival on a server yourself, you'll stand more chance of having the game fill up rather than looking for pub survival games -those tend to mostly be people glitching out of the map anyway.

Survival tanks are just as hard as Normal difficulty tanks, which die in less than 15 seconds. With bots.

That was covered already. There wasn't a need for thread necromancy to reiterate.

It's a friggin Tank, what do you expect? Also a full team and concentrated fire will kill them in seconds.
