Call of Duty: Vanguard’s micro tank is too durable to be trusted.

The Goliath is a remote-controlled explosive tank controlled by Vanguard players. It’s a reminiscence of the infamously irritating RCXD killstreak in the Black Ops series. The sledgehammer can create something worse than I expected.

The Goliath can not only produce a much bigger boom than Black Ops’ tiny RC cars, but it can also run over and instantly kill players. The terrifying clip below, shared by Professor FatSak from the Vanguard subreddit, shows Goliath’s true killing power.

“Why don’t they just shoot that?” As I watched the clip, I thought to myself: “Why don’t they just shoot it?” It wouldn’t have made any difference, but I don’t think it would have. As it turns out, that little green beast is Ford tricky. One player can fire nearly two magazines into the Goliath and barely get it to half its health. This is a significant upgrade to the RCXD, but it could be beaten with a few bullets.

Vanguard’s third major change to the RCXD is the removal of the 3-kill streak reward. The Goliath, a field enhancement, is a bonus gadget that automatically recharges throughout a match. The set timer stops dominant players from calling six Goliaths into a match. It also ensures that everyone with a Goliath equipped will receive at least one to two matches, depending on the length.

On Vanguard’s first weekend, I have been seeing the Goliath quite often. Usually it takes me a few seconds to get overtaken. It’s not fast enough to run from, but it can be a nuisance if you aren’t paying attention or get trapped on one of Vanguard’s smaller maps, like Das Haus.

As I discovered a few months back, it’s also very easy to get run over by the Goliath. It spawned right after me, okay? It spawned right behind me, okay?

Is the Goliath worth being nerfed? Although I wouldn’t recommend going that far, it is difficult to maneuver around the tank in close-quarters situations. Shooting it alone won’t be enough to eliminate it quickly enough. The Goliath, just like the RCXD, is a cowardly tool and should be avoided at all costs.
