How To: Getting T-34 Passed Tank Traps (Bridges of Druzhina)
This guide will demonstrate how to get the Russian T-34 tank passed all tank traps in Bridges of Druzhina without a single satchel.
In this guide, I will show you how to get the Russian T-34 passed all tank traps in Bridges of Druzhina without destroying any tank traps.
This guide does not cover the German Panzer IV because it can simply drive over tank traps.
There are generally four lines of tank traps along the map. You only need to worry about the first three lines, the fourth line only blocks the final bridge. Your tank can simply drive across the river to avoid the fourth line of traps.
This guide will show you how to get passed the first, second, and third line of tank traps. You might be thinking "Why can't I just switch classes and blow the tank traps?" Well, there's nothing stopping you from doing that. However, sometimes you just feel lazy or quite frankly don't care much for changing your class. If you want to put the Engineers out of business, if you want to show your tanker prowess, or if you hate everyone on your server for not going Engineer then this guide is for you.
First Line of Tank Traps
The first line of tank traps is easy to bypass, you only need to go full throttle and "jump" your tank over the traps. Here's how...
To the left side of the first bridge, there's a little mound outcropped beside the tank trap line. This mound can be used as a jump ramp. Simply line your tank up with where that white arrow is pointing and go full throttle. Your T-34 should jump over the first line of tank traps.
On the right side of the bridge, there's destructible tank traps at the bottom-left corner of G5 on your map. Position your tank at a roughly 20 degree angle to the gap as shown in the picture. It's a tight squeeze but if done correctly you will drive right through.
The same gap is on the left side, located beside the destructible tank traps at the upper-left part of F4 on your map.
Second Line of Tank Traps
The second line of tank traps is also easy. Go up the main street and turn right at the first intersection...
The arrow is pointing at that destroyed red brick building and the opening for your tank. Simply drive your tank towards that opening at a roughly 45 degree angle and generously apply the throttle. You will drive over the bricks and into the building but there's a clean opening on the other side that you can easily drive through.
Third Line of Tank Traps
The third line of tank traps is a little more difficult. Sometimes I can do it in one try so it will take practice. Once you're passed the second line of tank traps, go down the street passed Objective J and you'll come to the third line of tank traps...
The arrows are pointing at where you need to go... Drive your tank down that grass alleyway.
For the next part, speed is important. I recommend twenty-five percent (25%) engine power if you're using incremental throttle, if not, then careful how much power you're giving it. I suggest testing this in offline mode so you can practice and not confuse your teammates.
The final part is tricky but easy once you know what you're doing. You need to do a zig-zag at about 25-35% engine power around the fence corner and then 100% engine power around the building corner. This zig-zag maneuver is difficult so, again, practice in offline mode.
This part is all about hugging the cement corners of that fence and the building. Do so and your tank should drive into that underpass and emerge infront of Objective M. In most cases, the enemy will never suspect your tank to be there.
Conclusion and Video
This concludes the tutorial for getting your T-34 passed all tank traps in Bridges of Druzhina without any Engineer assistance. Now, feast your eyes on this:
This is not a conventional way of getting through the map and I don't recommend it but I shared it and now you know. I also shared this because, on a daily basis, many people ask how to do this.
I hope this helped you in some way and thank you for reading!
