In Destroy All Humans!, when the Alert Level was raised to Army, Tanks appeared and attacked Crypto. However, in Destroy All Humans! 2, Tanks didn't appear on Yellow, but on Orange. More Tanks came when Red was reached. In Destroy All Humans! Big Willy Unleashed and Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon, Tanks appeared in the second last alert level and disappeared in the last alert level.
As their name suggested, Tanks were the strongest land weapon that attacked Crypto, but with a well aimed Ion Detonator, a few blasts from any Saucer Weapon, and continuous firing of a fully upgraded Zap-O-Matic/Disintegrator Ray easily destroyed a Tank.
Types of Tanks Edit
Destroy All Humans! Edit
In the first game, green Tanks with the American Flag on them appeared. They took out about 1/2 of Crypto's health and did the same damage as a Shotgun. Tanks could be destroyed with an Ion Detonator. If Crypto got close enough, a machine gun on the tank then started to shoot.
Destroy All Humans! 2Edit
In the second game, the Tanks seemed to be m-48 Pattons with a modified turret with two guns. On ground, tanks used only one gun but in the Saucer, they used both, obviously due to difficulty reasons, the turrets were modified to become different tanks. Those are: An AA Tank, which was equipped with two missile pods that did not attack Crypto while he was on foot, a Laser Tank that fired lasers from a satellite dish, and the Russian Space Tank.
Destroy All Humans! Big Willy UnleashedEdit
Tanks had a similar look to the Tanks in Destroy All Humans!, except they didn't have a machine gun. They did have the same amount of damage, though.
There was a custom Tank in Big Willy Unleashed that was used by Patty Wurst. That Tank had enough damage to destroy a building. After Crypto defeated Patty, her Tank was used as a prop for Big Willy's.
