How to beat balloons?

13 posts in this topic

How do I stop this bloon crap. I have made it to the end and started to go back around. Then I stopped playing it because they released this balloon crap. Now I am back and they are even more rampant then ever.

I lost to someone with 500 damage because of them. 

 

P.S I had 6k damage and he had 500

No, shotgun just has to be placed anywhere behind where the balloon would go and it pops it the same time a rocket would pop it

blades are best, all the other weapons mentioned have to be above where the balloon pack hits you

against two bloons sometimes only chainsaw (drill, stinger) helps...especially on titan...blade gets them too late...all depends on chasis (and where bloons hit)

I get ya, depends a lot on chassis as you said, and speed of approach...I was just pointing out that a blade will swipe the biggest area. Low and high on your ride to hopefully clear that sucker off.

Let's not forget a  forklift and a booster can catch under your opponent and stop you being lifted, But that can be a little hit and miss. Damn this game has nuance!

Sometimes, swapping wheels work too.

For starters, all wheels have weight (hidden stats).  Knobs are light, bigfoot is heavy.

Next is relative horizontal positions.  A body on knobs, rollers or scooters will change how high your weapons are from ground.  Even your minigun can effectly pop a balloon without being lifted.

You have to fail many times to succeed

For me I think shotgun is still the best

How to build a destroying balloon machine :

Body : titan (with three weapon slot )

weapons : shotgun on the top , blade in the middle and stinger in the bottom

upgrade the shotgun. SHOTGUN + WEAPON TOOLBOX = AWESOME

My build need 13 power though.

So keep using the power toolbox to upgrade the titan

P.S it can block bouncy boulders too.

Have fun with rockets and double rockets.

You can change the blade to double rocket

The stinger instead, because blades have a higher chance of popping lifter balloons than stingers do.
