Tips & Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is much safer to shoot the non-flare weapons underground right away rather than in the sky. If they are shot in the sky it requires that it makes direct contact with a tank or for it to curve back around on the underground side.
  • If used correctly, Torpedoes can be one of the best early weapons you can get for close range battle.
  • This weapon penetrates shields.
