Auto Spin is a feature added on the July 23rd, 2016 update that makes your tank spin around at a slow speed automatically.
It allows the player to spin around at a set speed without moving the mouse. It is activated by pressing C. When activated, there is a heading at the top of the screen, much like when Auto-Fire is turned on. When the Auto Spin is on, the tank will be spinning clockwise. Also, for tanks that have controllable drones (Overseer, Overlord, Necromancer, Manager, Battleship) the drones and the tank will be spinning clockwise.
This can be useful for tanks like the Quad Tank, Triple Twin or Octo Tank. Combined with Auto-Fire, it can create a way to farm endlessly and make yourself nearly unapproachable, at the cost of control. It can help you in some situations, but against tanks like the Booster, whose essence and success feeds off of lacking concentration, it can work against you.
It appears that turning Auto Spin on while moving will slow you down, so be careful and only use Auto Spin on certain situations.
The Tri-Trapper can use this in defensive cases by firing while you are spinning, creating a circle that stops many projectiles and ramming tanks and creates a temporary “safe zone” in team game modes, such as 2 Teams, 4 Teams, Tag Mode, and Domination.
- This feature was added on July 23rd, 2016.
- Arena Closers and AI-Dominators also use this feature when there are no players in the server and when not targeting a player respectively.
- The Auto 5, Auto 3, Smasher, Spike, Auto Smasher and Landmine all have Auto Spin on passively (although slower than normal), and turning it on and off has no effect while playing as these classes.
