Post by chicken fingers » Thu Jun 14, 2007 4:14 pm

i heard it somewhere that will not be mentioned that cloaking is invincible to laser because that laser is a sniper weapon that most cloaking shots would be mistakes i have never tried or seen anyone shoot someone with cloaking with a laser flag just want to be sure its posible or not

Cloaked tanks cannot be hit by laser (think about it for a minute - a laser is a beam of light; a cloaked tank is invisible, meaning light passes straight through it).

It is true that a tank with laser cannot kill a tank with cloaking. The best solution is to drop the laser flag and try to shoot the cloaked tank with normal bullets.

And just so you know, though you may already, stealth is somewhat invincible to guided missiles. A guided missile can't lock on to a player with stealth, though they can still shoot the missiles like normal bullets.

*shuts up*

Glad you found out what you needed.

Oh, but they can hit you. The bullets just won't track you, but if they hit you (like a regular bullet) you die. The only time they don't is if you are close enough to the tank with GM, that the arm time hasn't passed before the bullet has passed you. And that doesn't matter what flag you have, it's just a limitation of the GM flag.
