  • They have the highest amount of heal obtainable.

Tactics when using Tanker[]

  • If you have a SKULL-9, combine it with Mach Booster and Stun Particle to deal fatal damage against the others. A direct hit will kill Riflemen and Hectors instantly (make sure you have upgraded all the abilities first before hunting Hector).
  • Shotguns are the suitable weapon for this class, especially the Volcano.
  • Use the Charge ability to escape from Targeted Plasma Bombs from Riflemen or when you are stunned due to a Tanker enemy.

Tactics when facing a Tanker user[]

  • Avoid going directly to him as you are giving a way easy to shoot you.
  • Targeted Nuclear Bombs are the best way to deal with them.
  • Get back to your base if you are surrounded by Tankers.


These weapons are usable by the tankers:



  • Tanker can be equipped with M134 Minigun (including its variants), a knife or Shotguns.
  • The most suitable weapon for the Tanker is the Gatling, because it has epic damage and the Tanker can run while using it.
  • The Counter-Terrorist's Tanker resembles the Titan when it is wielding the M134 Minigun.
  • This character is not available for Singapore/Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam as well as Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies, because Meta Arena is not released in those regions.
