Gear Review: RC Tank


Gear Review: RC Tank
Yeah, I know it's been a while since I've written a gear review up, but I'll make it up to all of you with not one, but TWO reviews today! So, let's get to it then, shall we? First up, we have the new RC Tank! As the name implies, this is a remote controlled gear, like the Formula R Remote Control Car and the Dusek Car. Speaking of cars, I had a sandwich for lunch! Just kidding, that has nothing at all to do with cars. You know what do, though? Gear reviews. Speaking of gear reviews...

Abilities/Effects: 8/10

Don't be fooled by it's size; this tank packs quite the punch! Upon clicking, you'll "become one with the tank," and will see the battlefield through the eyes of the tank... er... figuratively speaking. Tanks don't have eyes, as I'm sure you know. The RC Tank shoots off gray, circular studs, which explode in your opponent's face on impact, and reloads fairly quickly. Even though it looks pretty spectacular, it takes 4 shots to get a proper knockout, leaving plenty of time for him to get you first. You see, when you're in this tank-state, your avatar is left completely helpless. It's "virtually" a sitting-duck (I should really work on my puns). But, this gear also has an effect that comes in handy when you're outnumbered. Supposing you're in a situation where your teammates have deserted you (or turned into mutant zombies, either is quite likely) and the opposition outnumbers you 4 to 1. Assuming they're all fairly close to one another, just whip out your trusty RC Tank, fire at one, and watch as all 4 lose 1/4 of their health! That means (if the enemy is within close proximity of one another), you can KO 4 people in 4 shots!

Appearance: 9/10

This tank's got the classic camouflage look, which I personally like. From the image in the Catalog, it's pretty realistic looking, which is another plus. There's not much else to say about it in this category, but overall it's got a fan-"TANK"-stick look!

Pricing: 7/10

Well, I do like the gear, which is mainly due to my liking of blowing things up, but the price its listed at seems just too much for it. At 2,000 ROBUX, this is the most expensive of any Remote Controlled gears out there. In fact, it's one of the most expensive non-limited gears published! Sure it's got some pretty neat effects, but I'd have to say that this is one of those "too much for too little" kind of gears.

Overall: 8/10

I'll keep this one short and to the point: Good gear. Bad price. Perhaps that's too short... I'll just add another sentence to stretch this out a bit. Well, stay tuned for another review heading your way!
