The Mega Trapper is one of the five Upgrade choices of the Trapper that are available at Level 45. It was added on July 18th, 2016; and was named later that day.

Design

The Mega Trapper features a circular body and a bigger version of the Launcher. When upgraded, the Mega Trapper decreases the Movement Speed but increases the size and strength of the Traps.

Technical

  • Traps are much larger but move proportionally slower. They can also deal more than as twice much damage as the regular Traps.
  • Firing rate is heavily decreased in comparison to the Trapper.
  • Fires with more recoil than the Trapper but much less than the Destroyer.

Strategy

As the Mega Trapper

Presumably similar tactics to that of the Destroyer are effective and used mainly at short range. If one is to encounter a Tri-Angle or a Booster, one has to predict the movements of the tank and place Traps according to predicted locations of the tank.

The Mega Trapper (and other trapper classes), if used correctly, can be major counters to the Penta Shot and the Spread Shot. When the opponent shoots toward them, the player can approach the opponent with Auto Fire triggered. The mega traps would completely block the opponent’s spread bullets (assuming bullet stats are maxed), and once close enough, the mega traps would collide with the opponent, thus killing them.

The Mega Trapper is also capable of barging open trap walls of other Trapper classes, thus destroying the defense of the opponent. However, Trapper classes that some other way of defense like the Auto Trapper (auto turret), Gunner Trapper (two gunner barrels), or the Overtrapper (drones), are harder to destroy.

The Mega Trapper dominates Maze mode. Its Traps are large enough that they can completely block tunnels. Remembering this technique is important especially in defensive scenarios, like when a Mega Trapper gets cornered by an enemy, or when trying to lock down an area.

This tank is also effective in the Domination and Mothership[1] modes, as it could hide behind the Mothership or Dominator, and build a strong wall to protect it, due to the large Traps and the lack of Movement Speed of the Mothership/Dominator.

Against The Mega Trapper

All players must stay away from the Mega Trapper and its Mega Traps. Body Damage classes will not survive, so Smasher and Tri-Angle classes have to retreat on sight.

The Mega Trapper uses strong and dangerous Traps to attack and defend. However, it's also slow in Movement Speed and Reload. The player can take advantage of this by using a concentrated DPS tank like the Triplet, Streamliner, or Gunner classes. The player has to pressure the Mega Trapper constantly by shooting through holes in the Trap wall, thus killing the opponent through attrition.

The Assassin and Hunter branches are also surprisingly effective against Mega Trappers, since they can sneak bullets through the mega trap wall holes. The opponent would be too busy trying to patch any holes in the wall, and would be susceptible to being flanked.

Trivia

  • This was one of the 5 new tanks added in the July 18th 2016 Update.
  • As of that update, it is the second Upgrade of the Trapper with a name, the first being the Tri-Trapper.
  • Many already compare this to the Destroyer, due to it being a larger version of an existing tank.
  • One Mega Trapper Trap is actually capable of destroying one Arena Closer Bullet, assuming that its Bullet Penetration and Damage are both maxed out.
