|— In-game description.|
The Beetle Tank is the second unit available in the Factory.
Beetle Tanks are vehicle units that has high health and considerable damage considering it's cheap cost and training time.
This unit can be used to partially protect others from being attacked, since they can resist a couple of shots from turrets and can be a good distraction for Mortars if no cheaper options are available such as Marines.
If using only this unit, deploying it in large quantities in a certain spot can make them deal big amounts of damage and may be able to resist a lot of attacks from Cannon Blasts.
Another good way to use them is to deploy them alongside a long-range, high-damage units such as Bazookas and Colossus, which can stay behind from the Beetle Tanks, effectively protecting them from taking damage and leaving the tanks absorb it for them. Other units that works well when paired with it are S-Trikes since the Tanks can work as an distraction; although it may require several Tanks to be deployed in different spots of the base if the player needs to protect them at all cost, which can consume more Warp Gate size.
They can also be useful to take down bunkers filled with weak infantry units or destroy Star Bases level 4 or bellow.
It's also recommended to avoid placing them near Freeze Turrets since their slow movement speed and fire rate can be considerably worsened by the freeze status effect, unless they aren' needed to deal damage but rather to distract defenses.
