Tanks. As the name implies, Tanks are devastating, big and tough. The Tank is big shaped and a grey-ish zombie that can create chaos in its wake and throw pure concrete towards its victims, which can, and will, lead to insta-kill if it hits a survivor. Due to its big body, the Tank's shirt cannot be seen so it's considered "ripped-off" from the body mass, but the pants can be seen. They are muscled enough to pack a punch that deals loads of damage towards the survivor and they are unstoppable if they are in a massive group of 3 or more Tanks. They are also a damage sponge, but all Tanks are scared of many things. Some of things are the Minigun, the RPG and the Famas F1. A well time Grenade or Chinalake blast can also fling a Tank off the map. The Tank is considered the devastator class of the game.
