Tank is OP?

My opinion is that yes, the tank is OP. No matter how good a teamwork the surviviors have the tank can take them all down fast alone. The tank ruins the balance and the only thing that works well on it is fire.

Yep! They are OP, But they are the one that probably balance it because teamwork is invincible and Tank can do the job. THe team must work to defeat. IF they lose, they perish. Go fire and keep running backward while firing back.
BTW u need shotgun. They are the ones with the most damage per fire. That why u need a team with 2 having machine and 2 having shtoguns

OP makes it sound like it's not supposed to be there because it brings an unbalanced setting to the game and that's just not it- a tank is supposed to be a challenge in the game. if you're all going down by a tank, you all should probably learn how to dodge rocks and know where to go in a safe distance to get a clear shot at it.

Do you mean the tank in a versus online game? Some players can tank like a pro because they know where the weakspots are in a map. Nevertheless, some times the tank shows up too early in the game. :(
You can always request to restart a map, hoping that the tank doesn't show up.

This may sound crazy from someone who's only had the game since Saturday, but I must agree that the Tank is a little overwhelming, at least for new players as myself. A slight tweak to its health could resolve it. If it goes down faster, it won't be able to do as much damage, but the intimidation factor the Tank has won't be diminished that way.

The fact that the boulders can be dodged by sidestepping a lot already brings better balance to the Tank in my opinion. The fact that he dies if he doesn't attack for too long also helps since I've managed to outrun a few Tanks.

What gets me on this opponent though is the fact he manages to knock me miles ahead. I can aim at him just fine, hitting him is no problem for me seeing his enormous size. I usually end up top of the list in the 'damage to the Tank' part. It's really the knockback and amount of damage he manages to do in the time that he's alive that makes this particular foe a challenge for me.

You are right the tank isnt an easy enemy but thats good it makes the game more interesting. It forces you to play together and work in team.

Agreed, the Tank is fantastic against 'that guy' who doesn't care for his teammates and lets them die.

Tank can be killed in 15 seconds flat. Just don't get close.

Tanks aren't OP, you are just new.

Depends entirely on the player controlling the tank, too.
Once you've died enough times, you'll have learnt something new about fighting the tank. Avoid cars :)

What you got to remember is using bombs against the tank is effective. Light it on fire with the molotov, while he is slightly faster, he takes constant damage while in the fire and out. Your work is done for you at that point, all you gotta do is pump more bullets into the tank.

Tank is not OP. Just learn to fight it.
