Similar to BT1, you must travel through giant bubbles, destroying enemy tanks and taking their bubbles to fuel your growth. As you grow, you constantly evolve and get ever better weapons. Ultimately, you'll have to face the ultimate adversary and defeat it to win the game.

If you have not played Bubble Tanks 2 then please do! It is a very fun game that I am sure you would enjoy.

Welcome to my Bubble Tanks 2 *Tank Guide*. Here you will see the description of every single tank in the game and more. Each descritpion shall be typed word for word from the description in the game. The guide is here to help you get an idea of each tank and its description before having to play through the game to find out yourself (I am simply gathering all the information and laying it all out). I shall also help give strategies on how to defeat the final boss with each 5th generation tank from my own experiance.

Here are all the final tanks and the Basic Tank at their original size. You can now see the full bulk of the heavy ships compared to the lighter ones and the Basic Tank.

http://i37.tinypic.com/28jjscn.jpg

<-*-><-*-><-*->The Boss<-*-><-*-><-*->

If you know what your doing, the boss is an easy kill. The boss can be split up into 4 sections, the head, the tail, and the 2 claws. The tail produces spawns that will home in on you, the 2 claws will fire 3 parallel shots at you, and the head will fire bursts of large cannon bubbles at you or a sticky bubble. To defeat the boss, you must destroy the head, claws, and tail. You will always reach the boss soon after reaching a 5th generation tank.

Each tank is unique and how well you do with the tank depends on the style of playing you are most comfortable with. For example, the Ghost Sniper may be the best tank for some players while the Super Heavy is the best for others. I shall explain how to kill the boss with each tank.

*Ghost Sniper*
The ghost sniper is a very fast ship and can turn on a dime. Its Explosive Pierce Shot may be slow but it is very powerful. Its disassemble ability is a very neat ability.

When facing the boss, keep in mind that your bullets take a while to recharge. Lucky for you, the boss does not move around (meaning you should not miss very often). Because it takes a while to reassemble, the Disassemble ability is not strongly encouraged. If you do use it, use it only when you find yourself cornered by incoming fire. Otherwise, it is always better to simply dodge.

Because the spawn will home in on you even when you are disassembled, it is recommended you take out the tail first. The beginning of the battle is always the hardest.

After you take out the tail, stay back and fire at one of the claws, then when one is destroyed, destroy the other. The head fires sticky bullets once in a while so always keep a sharp eye out for those.

If you are hit by a sticky bullet, you can Disasseble and wait untill the sticky bullet's effect dies. This may prolong the battle, but disassembling and waiting is much better than taking a bunch of fire.

The head is not too much of a challenge by itself. Continue firing at it while you dodge incoming fire and you should be able to take it out.

*Super Fighter*
The Super Fighter requires more risk to use when facing the boss. It is not quite as fast and it does not have the disassemble ability to save it from incoming fire. What it does have, are drones. Those drones will attack the boss but it requires you to get fairly close to it before they will attack.

I suggest going for the tail, then the claws, saving the head for last again. In most cases this will be the pattern to defeating the boss. If you find yourself getting hit by a lot of bullets, back off and fire from a distance. Killing the boss takes a while and rushing to kill it will only get you killed. Even if your drones are not attacking it, you still have good fire power on your side.

*Leecher Tank*
The Leecher Tank is a fun tank to use. What it lacks in fire power is made up with impending doom. The doomsday infect will slowly drain the boss's health untill he dies. All you need to worry about is surviving.

Keep senging out your virus drone untill it infects part of the boss, after you see that he is infected, keep shooting at him from far away and avoiding the bullets. Eventually he will die. Shoot out the tail first so you have more room to dodge. Remember that you have to infect several different parts of him to kill him. For example, infecting the right claw will not destroy the head.

*Drone Tank*
The drone tank is a very weird tank. It's recharge rate is unimaginably slow (slowest out of all the tanks you can become) and its secondary weapon will only work while there are enemie seekers in the air.

Although it's primary weapon recharge rate is slow, you will find that it does not shoot bullets, but a drone. When fighting the boss, attack from far away. This not only keeps you further away from incoming fire, but will also give your drones more time to multiply.

Now this is a hard choice. Take out the tail first, or not? The tail will send out spawn to attack you, which you can turn them against the boss when you use your secondary weapon. So it sounds like you should destroy the tail last. Sadly, it can become hard to keep up with the spawns.

Ok, now that you have turned the boss's spawn against him, you can smile as it attacks the boss. Sadly your seekers will most likely turn against the tail and destroy the tail first anyways. You might as well go ahead and finish it off quickly so you have room to manuever later. Your primary drones will do just fine killng the boss by themselves.

Remember, stay far back and let the drones work for you.

*Super Heavy*
This tank is massive, slow, and you hardly be able to dodge even a single bullet. It may have the biggest cannon in the game but it is also hard to aim. Time is not on your side so attack quickly and prepare to go back down a generation of tank.

Do not worry about which part of the boss you should kill first, if you are facing the tail with your Massive Cannon kill the tail first, if you are facing the head, kill the head first. If you are not facing either of the two, kill whichever one is closest.

Stay near the middle/back when firing. You will be hit by less bullets the further away you are. Do not worry about being hit, just worry about pulling off major damage fast.

*BFT Carrier*
The BFT Carrier plays by the exact same rules as the Super Heavy. The only difference is that you need to keep the boss in view so you can hit him with your Ally Swarm. Throw everything you have at the boss. Eventualy you will win. Don't be surprised if you go down a tank generation. The heavy tanks are hard tanks to use.

Wow, you did a great job, I myself could not have put all of this together near as well.

Also, if you do decide to make a V2 (even though you did an AMAZING job on this one) maybe add something about the good parts of invincible mode for each tank path.
