The T-90 MS in War Machines
Regarded as one of the best defended Russian tanks, War Machine’s T-90MS has a wide variety of defensive skills. And even though it does not come equipped with APS, it does rock our new flame tech “Wildfire”! It arrives sporting a warm desert tan paint job and is our second fastest T9 vehicle, after upgrades.
The T-90MS may have less raw armour than the Merkava, but with a variety of defense techs and the highest initial damage potential, it’s all about getting ahead of the competition early on and assert dominance on the battlefield. It’s also really smart to swap your defensive tech every few matches, just in case opponents are getting too comfortable or preparing Loadouts to counter you.
Below you can see the blueprints of the T-90 MS for its conception inside the game.
T-90 MS Stats & Skills.
We are happy to share these numbers with you but just keep in mind that these numbers are bound to change at any time for balancing purposes.
|INITIAL STATS||FINAL STATS|
|ROUNDS PER MINUTE||12||18|
We are also happy to share with you the tech skills that will be available on the T-90 MS:
- Slippery: Speed bonus after taking damage
- Bulwark: Better side and back armour
- Immortal: Survives death with 1hp per spawn
- Reactive Armour: Shields after being hit
- Auto-Loader: +2-shots, + reload slower
- Wildfire: fire DoT
Once the multiple tech skills will be available, you will have different possibilities of builds! Here are some fun ideas of possible builds for you to prepare for this incoming feature!
|Build Variant||Skills Required||Gameplay Strategy|
|Fortress Variant||Bulwark, Immortal, Reactive Armour||A true moving tower, with improved armour, shield activation and it can even survive one killing blow per spawn from immortal. Great for organized teams, can literally “tank” more hits than you’d expect and gets even more interesting with the support of a teammate, a repair zone or a lucky repair supply drop!|
|Berseker Variant||Slippery, Auto-Loader, Wildfire||Trading defense tech for full aggression, this build can excel at fighting multiple targets, being able to quickly set 2 enemies on fire and reposition so quickly that even enemy teams with voice comms are going to get confused.
We hope that you found this information useful and we would love to know what you think about the T-90 MS. Tell us if you like the idea of having different builds and what kind of set-up you already have in mind! Join the discussion.
