[REJECTED] How to deal the most damage when still having damage % left.

Recommended Posts

The tackle manoeuvre you will learn today is very dangerous and should only be performed if it is necessary to do so and others are willing to engage in a road war with you, do not attack innocent civilians and do not engage in road wars unless the roads are completely clear. Remember with power comes great responsibility and you are responsible for anything which occurs when performing this manoeuvre, I am only teaching you the act of self defence when in a road war. 


This guide will cover some methods on how to deal the most damage whilst still having enough % left to score some more before you must repair. 

As you all know, there are no medics in ETS2 MP. Something which some of us may find annoying and some of us may like as you need to go back to respawn before getting back out into the battle field/ road. This guide will show you how you can conserve your damage while still being able to score a decent amount of hit points on rival enemies in game. 

The best areas of battle are around Calais as there are many targets and lots of damage points to get, the more the merrier. 

Firstly, select your target. This can be anyone who is travelling at quite a speed.

Keep in mind that the slower they are moving, the less chance you have of dealing damage and scoring more damage. If you really want to score a good amount of % on their damage, wait until they are travelling at least 50KM/H.


Ok, so now into the actual take down. 

The tactic I will be covering I call the glitch tackle. This move is barbaric and can be difficult to pull off if you are in a head to head battle as they can ram you before you get the chance to score the hit. 

Glitch tackle:

This video shows me performing a perfect glitch tackle on an enemy in Calais. The beautiful thing about this manoeuvre is that you don't take any damage at all and can still drive at your normal speed without noticing a thing, whilst it can also flip your enemy on its side or upside down if you are lucky. 


-Gain some speed (about 10-20 KM/H more than your rival) and over take your enemy, be careful that they do not ram you as you do this as this is a defence tactic often used to block this tackle. 

-Once you have enough speed (not too much otherwise you can miss your target), pull in front of them whilst holding down the throttle as shown in the video. If you do not hold the throttle down whilst performing this manoeuvre then you may risk damaging your car/ truck and/ or being turned upside down also. Make sure you are as close to the front of the enemy as possible otherwise the glitch tackle will not take effect. 

-Keep driving and watch as your enemy is devoured and if you're lucky you'll hit the bulls-eye and they'll be flipped completely upside down. 


Defence tactics against this attack:

This form of attack deals a lot of damage and others may try to perform it on you too. So here are some ways to prevent this happening. 

-As people drive past you, go very slow and turn towards the side of the road, so they have less chance of hitting you. 

-If you know the enemy is intending on performing this manoeuvre then you can slam your brakes on/ turn into them as they try to go around you, this way they have no way of damaging you without them taking a solid bit of HP too. This will and can result in you taking damage too so if you can, brake check them before this. This tactic of defence is only last resort as you do not want to be taking any damage whilst in a road war. 

-A conservative way to deal with this, is to just stop your truck all together. This way they can't deal any damage to you, as if you are not moving, it is physically impossible for you to crash into the enemy. 

-Using head on traffic to your advantage. If the person is trying to perform this and you know so, you can try get up to speed with them and push them into oncoming traffic. This way you can get two take downs for the price of one, however, often they will ram you before you do this or brake and move out of the way. 

-USE YOUR BRAKES! The rear of your truck is heavily plated. And I mean really heavily plated. Very rarely will you take damage when taking a hit from the behind as the back of your truck is the strongest part of your truck. 


Weak points on a truck:

The front is the weakest point on a truck/ enemy and also the hardest point to hit.

The sides are well armoured but still the second most weak point. However, this is easy to hit. 

The back of a truck is very heavily armoured, and if you hit it, expect to take a lot of damage and none given to your enemy. 



The moves covered in this guide are to be used responsibly and only if others are willing to participate in a road war. I also hope you have learned how to defend yourself out on the open road. Roll out truckers.
