Firebird

From Tanki Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Firebird deals damage through both a jet of flame and the resulting burn that occurs upon contact, capable of ailing opponents even after the weapon has stopped firing. Firebird, like Freeze, can deal damage to several tanks within close proximity simultaneously. For a novice player, the main advantage of Firebird is that aim isn't really necessary; all that is required is to point the stream of fire in the general direction of a foe.

Description in Garage

In tight urban areas, where the battle looks like it's being fought on an anthill, Firebird reigns supreme. Ideal in restrictive spaces, it can fry to a crisp any tank, be it heavy and clumsy, or light and nimble. Even a partially-full energy gauge is enough to roast an enemy, and if you use your resources effectively, you can barbecue several enemies at once. With this turret, it is best to attack from a very short range. This will allow you to quickly reach maximum temperature and move on to your next target. In the meantime, your enemy will continue to burn on its own, unless it is cooled down by a teammate.

Table of Characteristics
  • Damage (HP/sec) — The amount of damage dealt to an enemy tank per second.
  • Rotation speed (deg/sec) — This is the maximum speed that the turret can rotate at.
  • Rotation acceleration (deg/sec²) — The acceleration of the turret reaching its maximum rotation speed.
  • Range of max damage (m) — The distance at which the turret deals its full damage. If the distance is greater than the max damage range, the damage constantly decreases until a tank passes the minimum damage range.
  • Range of min damage (m) — The distance at which the turret's damage reaches zero and stops decreasing.
  • Burning time (sec) — The period of time, starting from the moment when Firebird's attack ends, that the enemy tank suffers from afterburn and receives burning damage.
  • Temperature limit — The maximum temperature that an enemy tank can be heated to. This affects burning time and burning damage.
  • Reload time (sec) — The total required time in seconds to replenish Firebird's energy if it has been completely exhausted.
  • Amount of energy — The total amount of energy that can be expended for shooting.
  • Energy consumption (eng/sec) — The amount of energy used per second if Firebird is used continuously.
  • Heating rate (temp/sec) — The increase in an enemy tank's temperature per second.
  • Cone angle (deg) — The conic, outward range in degrees that the flame spreads from the tip of the turret. Damage can not be dealt to an opponent outside of this cone.

Interesting Facts

  • Firebird didn't always hold the ability to cause damage in after-burn. Prior to the Update #114 - the Global Re-balance, Firebird's flame only damaged tanks and lowered their health, but didn't cause after-burn.
  • In late-2009, a very intriguing bug was noticed when a player using Firebird left a battle while still firing. The flame still appeared on the map, and in some rare cases, it didn't disappear until the battle was terminated by the server.
  • Long, long ago, Firebird's flame was actually blue instead of the current yellowish-orange shades.
  • On September 10, 2015, Firebird XT was added into the game - which could be obtained by completing a specific Daily Mission or by purchasing it in the Garage for 500 000 crystals whilst having a Premium Account. This version of Firebird differed from its original counterpart only by looks, and not by any extra or higher statistics.
