Spider Tanks brings us a new tank package, known as the Tiger, with a new body, skin, and a new weapon. As a special promotion, anyone who plays at least 50 Spider Tank matches this week has a chance to win one of these new tanks for their own!
Spider Tanks introduces a new tank package know as the Tiger Tank. The package comes with a Ripper weapon, Tiger Body, and a Stripes skin. And though it is only available as a package deal, purchasers are free to mix and match these parts as they wish. The Ripper is a special projectile weapon where the shots break into three, separate, spreading projectiles if it doesn’t hit a target quickly enough, paving the way for some interesting strategies with this weapon!
Sales for these Tiger Tanks open on July 5th, noon PT. Though to make it more fair for potential buyers, only half the supply will be released initially. The other half will become available at 8pm PST on the 5th.
The Tiger Tank packages come in five rarities (uncommon through ancient) and range in price from $120 to $5,000. Players who purchase one with ETH, GALA tokens, or credit card will receive a 5% discount.
To celebrate the arrival of this new tank, Spider Tanks is holding a special event this week from July 3, 2023 11:00 AM, until July 10, 2023 11:00 AM. Everyone who wins at least 50 matches during this time period will be entered into a drawing to win one of 200 common Tiger tanks. And since Spider Tanks is free to play, you can jump in and start playing right now!
What is Spider Tanks?
Spider Tanks is an eSport, MOBA game and part of the the Gala Games ecosystem. Spider Tanks sees teams of players piloting sci-fi, tankish-type vehicles in team battles.
Spider Tanks features several different game modes such as Capture the Flag, Team Death Match, and Chicken Chase! And since this is a team based game, having a complementary group of tanks can make a big difference.
Every Tank comes with a few customizeable parts. The most important parts are the Body and the Weapon. The Body determines how much armor your tank has, how fast it moves, and how quickly it regains Energy, which is used to trigger abilities. Every tank will also need a Weapon. These come in many options — from a Gatling gun, to homing missiles, to healing turrets, and more! Your Tank and Weapon selections should match your planned playstyle.
On top of those, players may also equip Skins, or paint jobs for their Tanks, and equip Props. These are cosmetic items, but some do offer small bonuses as well. For those who don’t own any tanks or parts, Spider Tanks does include a rental system. And finally, each Player can pick two Abilities for their Tank before a match. Abilities take Energy to use and have cooldowns before they can be used again. Abilities include effects like Shields, Healing, Slows, etc.
Matches are usually pretty quick. Tanks don’t gain levels or stats during a game. It’s all about going in with the right setup and achieving the match goals for your team. Players earn Victory Points while playing, which automatically convert to SILK tokens at the end of the day.
