HVY Nightshark Strategy/Performance
This armored SUV has good acceleration and good top speed despite its size. In addition, the Nightshark also has good handling, which is good for vehicle deathmatches where you have to turn constantly, although it might be difficult to turn the vehicle at first due to its weight so you have to practice drifting on this vehicle well.
The Nightshark is also heavy-duty because of its sealed hood, which makes the engine not visible for enemies to gun down. Its reinforced bumper can also push over other vehicles very easily, and it also has ballistic glass windows making its almost invulnerable against smaller caliber weapons in the game.
Also, the Nightshark can survive four Rocket Launcher rockets before being destroyed by a fifth one.
Its built-in machine guns can deal moderate damage against normal vehicles, but they are almost ineffective against other armored vehicles. The machine guns can only aim at the front of the Nightshark, but it can often “track” the target using an in-game aim assist.
Although it has offensive capabilities, the Nightshark is mostly perfect for defensive purposes and hit and run situations due to its heavy duty body and reinforced bumper.
