Trophy Guide

Trophy Guide and Road Map for Tanks, But No Tanks

Welcome to our Tanks, But No Tanks Trophy Guide. Tanks, But No Tanks is a modernized take on the old-school top-down tank shooter genre popularised by games like Battle City on the NES or Tanks! on the Nintendo Wii. In Tanks, But No Tanks you must collect coins that spawn randomly in the arena while avoiding bullets shot and ricocheted from three other tanks. Between rounds you can spend your hard earned coins on upgrades to make your tank even more lethal. Tanks, But No Tanks is a fun PlayStation 5 game to play solo or with three of your buddies.

Phase One | Play All Game Modes

For this phase in our Tanks, But No Tanks Trophy Guide you should focus on learning the gameplay while unlocking the Game Mode trophies. There are two Game Modes in Tanks, But No Tanks—Free For All and Teams—and both of them can be played with just two players, and/or AI. All you need to do in this phase is work on collecting coins and destroying the other tanks. Make sure to buy and upgrade with your coins, play against 1 Very Hard AI Bot, and shoot a teammate in Teams Mode.

Phase Two | Grind Free For All Mode

Now we’re on to the meat of our Tanks, But No Tanks Trophy Guide. In this phase you will be playing a lot of Free For All mode against three AI Bots or three inactive players if you want things to go smoother. Your goal is to destroy tanks using various Upgrades while also collecting coins. You’ll need to destroy 75 tanks with the Explosive Bullet Upgrade, destroy 75 tanks with the Turret Upgrade while also Teleporting 75 times, and so on. During this phase you’ll also naturally play on every map and collect a lot of coins which will help for the last phase.

Cumulative

For Making Mayhem to unlock you need to destroy a total of 100 tanks. Destroying your own tank with your own ricocheted bullets counts towards this trophy. You can pair this trophy with Bite The Bullet.

Gottem

Destroy 75 Tanks With Explosions

What is this?

Cumulative

For this trophy you will need the Explosive Bullet Upgrade which can be acquired in the Shop Round. Once you have it, you can press to fire an Explosive Bullet at enemies. Once you destroy 75 enemy tanks with the Explosive Bullet, Gottem will unlock. To speed this process up you can shoot your friends in the Shop Round repeatedly until the trophy unlocks. This won’t work with AI players.

Automation Sensation

One of the Upgrades you can buy is the Turret Upgrade which places a turret in front of you when you press . To unlock Automation Sensation you need to destroy 75 tanks with the Turret Upgrade. Tanks respawn infinitely in the Shop Round.

Watch Out

Destroy 75 Tanks With A Lethal Dash

Cumulative

One of the more useful Passive Upgrades you can buy for your tank is the Lethal Dash Upgrade. This allows you to dash right through an enemy tank and destroy them. You must destroy 75 tanks with the Lethal Dash Upgrade to unlock Watch Out. Tanks infinitely respawn in the Shop Round.

Everywhere

Teleport 75 Times

What is this?

Cumulative

The Teleporter Upgrade is quite helpful for getting around the map fast and avoiding enemy tanks. In order to unlock Everywhere all you need to do is teleport 75 times. While you’re attempting this you should also get the Teleport This.

Phase Three | Clean-Up

In this final phase of our Tanks, But No Tanks Trophy Guide you will be working on trophies you failed to unlock in the previous two phases. At this point you should be really close to most of the trophies listed below but generally the method for unlocking most of them will be to load up a match with maximum players and quickly grind out the requirements for the trophy. For example, the I Meant To Do That trophy requires you to shoot an enemy with a bullet that ricocheted three times so I would load up a game with some player-controlled tanks, quickly buy a +1 Ricochet upgrade and place the player tank in a spot where I can shoot a bullet and have it ricochet three times before hitting them.

Miscellaneous Trophies

Don't Underestimate Me

Acquire 4 Passive Upgrades At Once

What is this?
Untouchable

Max Out All Passive Slots

What is this?

For both Don’t Underestimate Me and Untouchable to unlock you need to buy Passive Upgrades during the Shop Round in any game mode. For Untouchable you need to have a Passive Upgrade in each of the 8 available slots.

Watch Your Step

Fall Off The Map

What is this?

On most maps you can find spots where the ground suddenly stops. All you need to do to unlock Watch Your Step is willingly, or accidentally, drive off into the abyss.

I Meant To Do That

Destroy A Tank After Ricocheting Off 3 Surfaces

What is this?

By default your bullets only ricochet twice before the next contact with an object destroys the bullet entirely. You can get more ricochets by acquiring the Ricochet Passive Upgrade—each one giving you an extra ricochet. To unlock I Meant To Do That you need to acquire at least one Ricochet Upgrade and fire a bullet at an object or wall with the intention of having it ricochet a total of three times before hitting your target. You can try attempt this naturally against Bots or you can connect a second controller and do this very easily against an inactive partner.

Better Together

Play A Game With 4 Players

What is this?

Local Co-op

To unlock Better Together you will need three extra DualSense controllers. Load up a game in any Game Mode and connect four controllers and press to ready them. Once you start a game with four players connected Better Together will unlock. Since this is a PS5 game you cannot use DualShock 4 controllers to play it so you need three extra DualSense controllers.

A Note from the Developer: “One [tip] that may help people is that the [Better Together] trophy is able to be unlocked with a single controller if the player joins in the lobby, then signs out, then signs in with a guest profile three times.
Hope this helps!”
