TUG

The ending depicts a short animation situated in the middle of a model kit's parts, similar to selectable menu screens of Tanked Up, on a large rectangular piece. At the top, on piece has the words "you win" written in white text, "back" is written on a piece near the bottom, "congratulations!" near the top of the rectangular piece, and a square indentation saying "submit score".

The animation depicts the grey tank, blue tank, and brown tank spinning in circles on a sandy shore with water visible above and a small cluster of palm trees on the left side.

Hazards

  • Land mines - They are placed on the tracks Rumble in the Jungle and In the Dock. They blow up on Impact, slowing the Tank down.
  • Snowballs - Dangerous balls of snow. They roll down hills, and deal great damage to tanks.
  • Swinging axes - These axes are positioned above small door ways. They swing back and forth, being hard to avoid.
  • Fire shooting mouths - They frequently shoot fireballs from their mouths, dealing damage to passing Tanks.
  • Battle ship - A gray ship with three cannons. It will shoot at passing tanks.
  • Electric towers - They shock all tanks that go off the track.
  • Lava - An orange fiery liquid that flows at the bottom of the track melting point. Even touching, or even going into it, will instantly kill a tank.
