Features[edit | edit source]

  • Subtle movement: moving on a low speed doesn't reduce your camouflage factor.
  • Designated target: vehicle has the ability to designate targets that are within line of sight and vision range. Designated targets are called out and takes increased damage.
  • Recon package: this vehicle's recon package provides an improved vision range when stationary.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Small, nimble, and powerful the CRAB is a lightning flanker, scout, and sniper, capable of dealing massive damage with its four-shot salvo of ATGMs and quickly relocating to avoid counterattacks. When played appropriately, the CRAB is a deadly threat to oblivious, low health enemy vehicles whose attention can be drawn away by a teammate MBT. Must be driven carefully at speed, as the smallest obstacle can send you spinnning.
