Unlike most other tier 1 weapons in Tanki Online, Firebird inflicts mass damage to groups of enemy tanks. This makes Firebird a serial killer right from the start. Best used on tight maps (e.g. Boombox), this turret is perfect for playing both DM and CTF games. In CTF it's great for surprisingly incinerating enemy defenders and capturing enemy flag.
Firebird requires no targeting skill and it is great for both DM and CTF games.
Try attacking enemies from behind, killing them before they can strike back. While Firebird recharges plan your next attack. A good Firebird player should always be on the move, travelling from one victim to another behind covers. Try being unnoticed. Avoid head-on attacks and retreat behind cover if necessary. Always be on the move and remember: motionless tanker with Firebird = dead tanker.
Damage per sec:
Firing range: under 15 m — 100%, over 20 m — 0%
Best matching hulls for mounting Firebird
The faster your tank is the faster you'll reach the target and get your frag. Wasp is the best and the only choice for playing with Firebird. On higher ranks before switching to more effective tier 2 weapon you may try a new hull: Hornet. Wasp (or Hornet) + Firebird is also a perfect combination for capturing enemy flags in CTF, cos Firebird is a perfect weapon for quickly killing groups of enemy defenders.
