Spider Tanks Showcase: Crab

November 22, 2023
Spread the love

Scuttle on over for another ST Showcase with the hard-shelled body you all know and love.

Welcome to another exciting edition of the Spider Tanks Showcase! In this week’s episode, we’re taking a closer look at the first Generation 2 Body to grace the arena with its presence. That’s right, today we’re all about The Crab!

Crab is a medium-sized body with extra Armor and balanced Speed and Energy. While other middleweights like Hurricane or Junker have their own niches as balanced death machines, Crab cranks up the Armor just enough so that it can put up with some punishment without slogging around the arena like a Titan.

Boomsticks: Crab/Shotgun

The Crab Body’s extra Armor makes it a perfect choice for players who like to get up close and personal with the Shotgun. This combination is all about dealing devastating damage at close range.

With the shotgun’s wide spread, you’ll be able to hit multiple enemies at once, and the extra Armor on the Crab Body ensures that you can take a hit or two while you close the distance.

You shoot a Crab, but it just keeps coming. That’s terrifying when it has a Shotgun.

Crab’s balanced Speed and Energy let you quickly maneuver around the battlefield and take down your opponents before they even know what hit them. If they do catch you and give chase, the Shotgun is perfect for gunning on the run. As you shoot at your pursuer, they’ll be walking straight into even more of your Shotgun blasts if they dare follow you too far!

Nuclear Torpedo: Crab/Railgun

The railgun is a powerful weapon that’s perfect for taking out enemies from a distance. When paired with the Crab Body, you have a deadly combination that can wreak havoc on the battlefield.

Crab‘s general thickness ensures that you can take a hit or two while you line up your shots, and the Railgun’s long range means that you can pick off enemies from afar. With the Crab Body’s balanced Speed and Energy, you’ll be able to quickly reposition yourself and take advantage of your enemies’ weak spots.

The patience to line up a perfect shot comes a lot easier when you’re sporting some heavy Armor.

Railgun is an all or nothing Weapon… there’s no points for getting close to an enemy. A Crab gives you the flexibility to concentrate on your quarry rather than just worrying about some stray laser blast knocking you out in one hit.

Front Line Medic: Crab/Repair Gun

The Repair Gun is a great support Weapon that’s perfect for players who like to help out their team. When paired with the Crab Body, you have a combination that can keep your team in the fight for a lot longer.

The Crab Body’s extra chonk ensures that you can take a pummeling while you provide cover fire with your Repair Gun. Thanks to the Crab Body’s balanced speed and energy, you’ll be able to keep up with your team and provide support where it’s needed most.

Even in the heat of battle, Crab can still get those heals out.

This combination may not be the most offensive, but it can be an amazing build for players who want to be a valuable asset to their team while still staying a little tough. With the versatility of Crab, your toughness is further enhanced by the fact that you just don’t have to get hit as often as the front line Tanks. Stay alive and keep your team alive.

Crab Power

The Crab Body is a versatile choice that can be a real game-changer in the arena. While it’s not without its weaknesses, in the hands of the right Pilot, it can be a force to be reckoned with.

Just like with any Tank Body, there are countless ways to play the Crab. Mix and match it with different Weapons to find your favorite!

Don’t forget you can play around with all the Bodies and Weapons in the Shooting Range!

Crab is sold out in the Spider Tanks Store, but you can still find them from other players on the official OpenSea Collection.

We’ll be back in a few weeks to shine a spotlight on Movement Abilities. Have big feelings or thoughts on Relay Drone and Speed Boost? Let us know in the comments or shout at us @Spider_Tanks!


The Wallpaper contest vote just ended, did you see the results?!?
