The complete list of weapons in Tank Trouble as of 28th February 2013.

This article tells you about the available weapons now on Tank Trouble!

Gatling Gun Edit

This power-up fires a series of tiny bullets out in rapid succession, in which bullets will bounce around at random, and are extremely unpredictable as a weapon. 

Booby trapEdit

This weapon is unlike other tank trouble power-ups in that it doesn't actually shoot something. Rather, it will lay a land-mine over the area immediately behind the tank using it, which will then disappear. If a tank drives over the land mine it will reappear and almost immediately explode, sending shrapnel out in all directions in a way similar to the frag bomb. If a tank reveals a booby trap and quickly stays immobile, then it will not explode, but if the player moves it they will end up exploding with it. Bullets and other weapons cannot explode the booby trap.


The laser basically works as both a weapon and targeting apparatus. Once you have acquired the power-up, a dotted line will emerge from your tank's barrel, tracing the path that the laser will follow when fired for almost half its range. Once fired, the line will turn solid and continue out, destroying and tank in its way and stopping

once it either reaches the end of its range or hits a tank. The laser must be prepared carefully, such that it does not reflect of any walls back to the same tank. As of 28th February 2013, this is the only power up which can be used versus Laika. But, Tank Trouble are thinking of a new weapon to use versus Laika.

Death RayEdit

Some consider this power up the most effective. When activated this weapon will shoot out a brightly colored energy beam in the direction your tank is pointing, which will pass right through walls and curve slightly toward your target. The beam can destroy multiple tanks in one shot and will only stop once it hits the outer wall. Custom mazes tend to have some of the outer walls within the inner battlefield, like "You sunk ma battleship": (thats by me) :P This weapon fires a single missile, which you can then guide using you standard controls. It will still bounce off of walls if not given other instructions, and is difficult to control, but for mouse or skilled keyboard users it can be quite effective. The main draw back is that once it is fired you will be unable to move your tank until it has either timed out or hit a tank, meaning you can't dodge while using it.

Homing MissileEdit

When first fired this weapon will bounce around just like the RC missile, however, after a few seconds the normally grey color of its smoke will change to the color of the nearest tank, which it will then home in on and destroy. Skilled Tank Trouble players will be able to avoid being hit by the missile and will be able to avoid it until it times out. It should only be used near an enemy tank to avoid the missile hitting yourself.l

Frag Bomb Edit

This weapon fires a single bullet, the only difference in appearance being it's a bit bigger than the average bullet. Once fired, you cannot fire another one. If you press the fire button again, or it hits a tank, the bullet will explode, sending shards everywhere, much like the Booby Trap. Skilled Tank Trouble players will be able to avoid being hit by the shards that will stop when it hits a wall then stays there.
