Thunder (Tanki Online - Turrets)

Thunder - Turrets - Tanki Online - Tankipedia
Tanki Online: This tier 2 middle-caliber gun is the best choice for dynamic battle. Splash damage (make sure you won't hit yourself!) allows you to attack a group of enemy tanks. Equiped with light armor is one of the most dangerous weapons on the battlefiels.

Thunder is the first tier 2 tank turret available in Tanki Online. Because all tier 2 turrets have approximately equal power, and Thunder is the least expensive of them all, it is a great choice for getting reasonably priced tank turret. Because of splash damage ability, to get the most out of Thunder you should focus on attacking groups of enemy tanks and stealing frags while keeping the distance.

  • Thunder turret has one major feature - splash damage!

    In CTF Thunder is used mostly for fire support and for killing enemy capers from the distance. Being a caper with Thunder is not a good idea mostly because of self damage.

    Even low-end modifications of Thunder guns are awesome, though having insufficient experience with it you'll probably be disappointed with the performance of M0 and even M1 modifications. So a general advice will be taking Thunder M0 at first opportunity for everyday practice, and to continue using an M3 tier 1 gun for winning prize crystals in long battles.

    Thunder has the most realistic appearance and principle of operation among other tier 2 tank guns, so all of you guys who like "realism" in sci-fi arcades will definitely love it.

    Swing speed:
    Reload (sec):
  • Firing range: 60 м — 100%, 120 м — 50%
  • Splash damage radius: 5 m — 100%, 5 to 10 m — 25%, above 10 m — 0%
  • Best matching hulls for mounting Thunder

    Because Dictator is so fast and cheap, it is a nice tank hull for mounting Thunder. So if you already have Dictator M3, than Thunder is a good choice. Though its drawbacks (Dictator has oversized dimensions and bad stability) sooner or later make you replace it with true tier 2 tank hull.

    Hornet is not the best choice to play with Thunder because it lacks armor and stability. Though playing Hornet + Thunder combination is fun. Especially if playing against unskilled players in CTF or TDM modes.

    Viking is maybe the best choice for playing in CTF and TDM modes, where you need maximum speed to respond to moving scenarios of team games.

    Mammoth + Thunder combination is maybe the best for playing Deathmatches. Mammoth also gets maximum bonus when using First Aid kits, Double Armor and Protective Paints, which makes it the best choice for drug wars. It is also a good combination for defending the base in CTF mode, effectively damaging enemy attackers on the way to your base and killing enemy capers from the distance.

    Thunder: PROs and CONs

    Should i upgrade thunder or rico to m3 in your opinion?
    Answer: depends on what do you expect from your gun. Ricochet is good for attacking emeny base or capturing points, Thunder is meant for support.

    I got m2 thunder and m2 Viking what do I get next because I don't like freeze dice it's hard to destroy Reuters with and they kill u before u do unlike thunder when u can from a distance and shaft I can't capture flags with. So I'm thinking thunder before ricochet and all the sudden this is getting confusing for me so thunder or Viking.

    What should I get? I'm a 4th warrent officer with 162 crystals but I buy every time I get a DCC.
    Answer: always update your turret first, hull later.

    Answer: try playing on bigger maps, so you can avoid meeting enemies with short range guns in close combat.
