General Information[edit | edit source]
The M1 Breacher is the third heavy vehicle the player can build (though the M270 Launcher, the fourth one, is usually avaliable before it).
It's abilities vary significantly from that of one's standard tank, though like the M270, it's built for dishing out hits as a support unit, but in a different fashion.
Normally, when deployed, it functions like a Rhino, with low health and DPS, and prefers to engage enemies with it's stubby cannon.
If Breach Mode is activated by hitting the button above the tank's icon, the player can no longer control it's movement and targeting directly. The tank take some time to deploy it's chain flail and after that, will no longer use it's ranged attack. It will now aggressively ram into enemies, prioritizing the closest defensive platforms over everything else. If it gets close enough to anything that blocks it's path (or reaches a turret), the tank will perform it's CQC attack, dealing the listed DPS rapidly and playing a unique sound. The attack seems to be able to damage barriers behind a targeted building. If the target is destroyed with the tank intact, it will charge to another defense platform and if they are all destroyed, the tank will attack the closest building. This effect will persist until the battle ends, or if the tank is destroyed.
The M1 Breacher tends to behave erratically in breach mode and will often get itself destroyed easily without dealing major damage. It's also no better against Railguns than most other tanks so pack some M270s to tackle them. It's likely for the tank to run into minefields, which can also cause it to be easily destroyed. The tank also takes a whopping 200 capacity and allows only one unit per squad, which can be disruptive to the player's platoon arrangements. It's advised to keep the various turrets distracted while the M1 Breacher shreds them into pieces.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The M1 Breacher is basically the M1A1 Abrams with a chain flail, meaning that they are based on the same vehicle.
- Ironically, Chain flails are able to trigger minefields without causing major damage to allied units, so it's unknown why the M1 Breacher (and the MK Shredder) can't do so in the game.
