Does the fuel tank have to survive for you to get fuel?
The conditions for use is: can’t be ejected or destroyed and you must survive the match.
I never pay attention to it & my kid is trying to get some Foxy challenge.
Fuel tank is slapped to the back of one of my 6k builds like a battle flag.
He just moved it in-board.
tuck it under ur build and dont melee,stay far away,you’ll be fine…use the 2 fuel barrels,one is 5 ,the other is ten,for a total of 15 fuel…have fun…
He got it… 2nd attempt. He was glitching & couldn’t aim on the 1st.
I’d chat more, but he wants to play more. Y’all be nice.
The last time I paid attention to fuel placement was in building a lance build. Kinda have a different strategy, there.
Yup, it’s overly convoluted in this game to get fuel, both you can your tank must survive… Devs didn’t think that through as most people rush in and die within 1 minute and the ones who don’t get swarmed and die!
I rarely have enough time to play in one day to go through all my fuel, so I literally only pay attention to it when that is one of the challenges for an event.
I normally when doing fuel missions just use an upgraded blue one for dmg resistance and mount it with an averter. It increases the chances of it’s survival by a fair bit.
Honestly I think the fuel tanks are a neglected part though and they should have a few more of them going up through the rarities to cover some more shapes and dmg type resistances and or increasing suicide blast dmg/radius…
