How to Find a Tank in Hell Let Loose

Everything concerning tanks in Hell Let Loose is a team activity, including getting them. To get a tank, you need to ask the commander of your team to spawn one for you in one of the three HQ spawn locations. Also, you’ll need to choose the Armor role.

Unlike other games, there won’t be plenty of tanks spawning often, giving you the ability just randomly to hop in. Some tanks and vehicles do spawn at a slow rate in the base, but most strong ones that can make a big impact on the game don’t.

Requesting a tank from the battle commander doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll get it. The commanders have a limited pool of resources they can use, so they will only spawn tanks when they think it’s needed.

How to Increase Your Chances of Getting in the Tank

First of all, you pick the Armor role, tank commander or crewman. The tank commander coordinates the movement of the tank and marks targets (the guy popping his head out of the tank) while the crewman can either drive or shoot the cannon.

Having a full 3-man team with your friends increases the chances that the commander will give you a tank. If you aren’t that fortunate, ask some of the other tank crews who are missing a member if you can join them.

Make sure to let everyone know whether you’re a beginner so that they can act accordingly. Driving a tank into a battle in Hell Let Loose is a complex effort, and your team needs to know how good your skills are before they go in there with you.
