Genocide is flag which causes the destruction of an entire team or group of tanks. (For example: If one is green tank and hits a red tank it will cause of the destruction of the entire red team.)

Use[edit]

The Genocide flag (referred to as 'Geno' or 'G') allows one to kill an entire team, simply by killing one of the team's members. Because shooting a single tank while holding Genocide wipes out their entire team, the amount of points one gets is equal to the amount of players on that team. For example, if one were to shoot a green tank with the Genocide flag, and there were four green team members, one would get four points.* Genocide is a powerful flag and usually does not have a high number of shots. Some servers only let you have one shot with Genocide!

  • Genocide does not kill players who are not active, like players who have not yet spawned. However if one is paused and their teammate gets hit with G, one would still die.
  • If one has G, and step on a player with BU (or kill someone by any other means, except shooting them), one does not kill all of that player's team.
  • It is possible to kill ones own team with G. This will happen if one shoot oneself while holding G, or shoot one of ones teammates with G. This will cause one to have multiple TK's, and can get one kicked from a server.

Strategies[edit]

CTF[edit]

The flag can be disastrous if it hits a team, and can be the turning point of a battle, giving one and ones team time to maneuver. On the other hand, if ones team is hit with G the other team has the upper-hand. If oneself is hit with G, ones team will get frustrated at oneself for giving the other team the upper-hand. It is advised to stay away from whoever has Genocide.

Rabbit Hunt[edit]

Genocide will kill everyone on one side, therefore a rabbit in rabbit hunt with genocide is very dangerous. If one is a rabbit with Geno, kill a hunter and let the points rack up!

FFA[edit]

Genocide is not as useful in free-for-all, but can still be used effectively. Normally the rogue team will not be killed by G, but they will if the RogueGenocide plug-in is enabled. If one is a rogue on a server, one can kill oneself with G and kill every other rogue!
