Stop that Tank!
— The Administrator issuing a directive.

Stop that Tank! is a community game mode that combines themes from both Payload and Mann vs. Machine. Play unfolds on Payload and Payload Race maps. The payload Cart is replaced by the Tank and moves on its own, following the path of the cart. There are two teams: Robots and Humans. They are tasked with escorting the Tank or preventing it from reaching its destination. Players have the opportunity to take control of Giant Robots and Sentry Busters which typically have buffed health, loadouts, and special abilities.

All official Payload and Payload Race maps are supported.

Gameplay

There are two distinct types of gameplay for Payload and Payload race maps.

Payload

Gameplay in Payload. Note: Some minor details may be inaccurate.

Robots (BLU Team)

The Robots play offense on the BLU team.

Humans (RED Team)

The Humans play defense on the RED team. Playing as a Human comes with a few perks. Reanimators spawn when a RED human is killed and can be revived by a team medic. Engineers have an increased max metal amount of 330 and no slow down penalty when hauling buildings.

The Tank appears where the Payload cart normally is. During setup, Engineers are able to instantly place level 3 buildings and Medics have a notably faster ÜberCharge fill rate. When setup ends the Tank is stationary for 15 seconds then begins moving until it reaches the end or is destroyed. The Robots protect the tank while the Humans try to deal as much damage to the tank as possible. When the Tank crosses over a checkpoint, it regains a portion of its health back (up to 80% of max health). This is reflected by the health bar on-screen turning green. If the Tank reaches the final checkpoint, then the Robots win the round. If, however, the Humans destroy the Tank, then the Robots have one more chance to win by delivering the bomb to the final checkpoint and deploying.

Mvm bomb.png
A top scoring member of the Robots team is chosen to become a Giant Robot with a bomb strapped to its back. The bomb cannot be dropped until the giant is killed. The Robots must capture the remaining control points missed by the Tank and then deploy the bomb at the final checkpoint.

Crit Cash™

Mediumcredits.png

The credits that the Tank leaves behind when it is killed is referred to as Crit Cash. Only Human players can pick up Crit Cash. Upon pickup, Crit Cash grants 5 seconds of crits, a 3 second healing effect, a projectile shield Leaderboard class medic.png, and replenished ammo, charge shield Leaderboard class demoman.png, and spy cloak meter Leaderboard class spy.png.

Payload Strategy

Sentry Busters

SentryBuster.png

Periodically, a random member of the Robot team is chosen to become a Sentry Buster. They are called out if an enemy's Sentry Gun has accumulated enough Tank damage, Giant Robot damage or Robot kills. The Sentry Buster is a specialized robot that deals significant blast damage to nearby enemy players and buildings in a one-time attack. They move at faster than scout speeds and take reduced knockback from damage and airblasts. Attacks are initiated by pressing primary fire or taunting (default key: G) while on the ground. The Sentry Buster will wind up for 2 seconds then explode. Enemy dispensers cannot be used to block Sentry Busters. Sentry Busters come equipped with Sentry Vision and can see an outline of all enemy Sentry Guns that are not being carried through walls. Teammates can see an outline of their team's Sentry Buster through walls to aid with coordinating attacks.

Mobile, but weak, the Major League Scout is ideal at getting the job done quickly. It can only reliably kill one target at a time, but is perfectly capable of stunning or knocking away multiple enemies at once in order to clear a path. The quick move speed combined with the ability to triple jump allows the Major League Scout to take routes other giants could only dream of. Combined with the double capture rate, this causes the Major League Scout to pose a serious threat to the human team should it slip by their line of defense.

Leaderboard class soldier.png Giant Soldier
Health: 10,000
Speed: 98 HU/s

Like a normal Soldier, this giant can manage just about any threat. However, it must take care to place its shots carefully, as there are no reload speed or clip size bonuses. Due to the lack of a Shotgun, airblast can be an effective means of defending your team against this giant. Although it's normally quite slow, it can also perform rocket jumps in PLR maps to traverse areas faster, or to make a quick escape.

What the Giant 10-Shot Bazooka Soldier lacks in quality, it makes up for in quantity. As the name implies, up to ten rockets can be quickly loaded and fired at a time, making for deadly close-to-mid range barrages. Alternatively, rockets can be rapidly fired individually, resulting in a steady stream of damage output. However, the Giant 10-Shot Bazooka Soldier is relatively slow, and the rockets are extremely inaccurate at longer ranges.

Some giants just want to watch the world burn. Others, like the Giant Pyro, just want everyone to get the hell away from them. Should you feel the need to get close anyway, you'll either be either enjoying a nice & warm shower of fire, or you'll be punted halfway across the map. Keep your distance instead, and you'll be relatively safe, so long as you don't feed it projectiles to reflect.

You better get ready for some heat, because things (specifically you) are about to get a lot hotter up in here thanks to the Giant Flare Pyro. This giant, as one might expect, specializes in sending enemies scrambling for health due to its ability to hand out long-lasting critical afterburn like candy. With that in mind, it's particularly vulnerable against fireproof humans.

Hits hard, hits fast, but has no ranged weaponry. Try not to get too close, as this giant is king of close quarter combat, and every kill will make him more powerful. It has no real means of dealing with Sentry Guns however, which means it must rely on teammate support to clear Engineer nests.

Makes Michael Bay look like an explosive amateur. This one certainly lives up to its name, as it's capable of clearing large areas with a single shot. The large explosions leave a cloud of smoke, which can help teammates advance without being seen. However, it has very little means of direct combat, which makes Pyros, Scouts, and other close range attackers much more threatening.

When it's time to bring in the big guns, this giant's got you covered. It's the slowest giant when attacking, but pumps out massive damage in a constant hail of bullets. Like normal Heavies, it's more vulnerable to Snipers and Spies due to the slow speed and the "focus down individual targets" style of attacking.

Ready to get literally blown away? Like the Giant Demoknight, you won't want to get too close, as it has the ability to kill any target in a single hit with a well placed shot. Unlike the Giant Demoknight however, it has no real means of closing the gap without slowly huddling your way, making ranged attacks more effective against it. Be wary that if it gets a kill with its melee weapon, it's going to be raining crits for the next eight seconds.

This giant excels at enhancing its team's offense, although it only has basic means of defending itself, along with having a low health pool. It can build Giant Mini-Sentries, which, while powerful, can be taken down quickly with focused fire. Its Giant Dispensers can be erected and upgraded quickly, which then dispenses ammo and health over a large area. Its Teleporter Exit becomes the team's respawn point, although both teams will be alerted of its presence. The Giant Engineer is particularly vulnerable against enemy Spies, since its buildings can still be sapped. Note that when this giant dies, all of its buildings are destroyed as well.

Leaderboard class sniper.png Giant Rapid Fire Huntsman
Health: 10,000
Speed: 150 HU/s

A hybrid between a support and combat giant, the Giant Rapid-Fire Huntsman can prove to be quite versatile. The highly damaging, penetrating arrows will quickly put down most threats at mid-to-long distances, and are only limited by the player's prediction abilities. Equipped with up to five Jarates at once, the Giant Rapid Fire Huntsman is more than capable of quickly weakening groups of enemies for its team, but this also enables it to easily dispatch close range attackers when used in conjunction with the Bushwacka. Just be careful about tossing one at an enemy Pyro...

A hybrid between a support and combat giant, the Giant Rapid-Fire Huntsman can prove to be quite versatile. The highly damaging, penetrating arrows will quickly put down most threats at mid-to-long distances, and are only limited by the player's prediction abilities. Equipped with up to five Jarates at once, the Giant Rapid Fire Huntsman is more than capable of quickly weakening groups of enemies for its team, but this also enables it to easily dispatch close range attackers when used in conjunction with the Bushwacka. Just be careful about tossing one at an enemy Pyro...
