Tank Game Alternatives Ep. 1: GUNNER, HEAT, PC | What is it?

Over the last few years, my interest in war thunder as a tank game has waned considerably, many of the game’s design decisions are based more around profit than making a fun game especially when it comes to top tier. In this series, I aim to take a look at various tank game alternatives that I have found enjoyable or have promise for a great overall experience.

Today we take a look at Gunner HEAT PC, an upcoming modern tank game focused around that keyword, FUN. Something that War Thunder has quite often forgotten about over its lifespan.

  1. I love HEAT. All it really needs is a mission/map maker and it would already be golden.

  2. i only ever play war thunder to play for low tiers and maybe once every few months

  3. this game looks promising ! great video covering the infos on it.

  4. Though I'm not really a pc player, this game seems like it could be the passionate game with tanks that doesn't demand a ton of time and money that I've hoped for. But I'll need patience to see it have a full identity

  5. building a harem to not die from your yandere?

    oustanding move, boy.

  6. would play this but im not into modern tanks sadly

  7. A Arma 3 like Mission Editor would make the replayability and community networking so much better.

  8. I greatly support this project. Let the people who whine for "tank-only mode" migrate here instead. The devs on their discord stated that aircraft will be at most AI on rails as target practice for SPAAG and SAMs.

    The devs are current or former War Thunder players.

  9. Great video, will definitely give the demo a try.

  10. Every game seems to cater to the COD style in the end. Spawn live a few secs and die to an enemy you dont see and repeat. That in the end always becomes tiresome. People seem to want to just react in games instead of slowing down and thinking.

  11. What a perfect jab at WT. I'm already liking these devs. Gonna wait and see further development.

  12. Another thing that needs to be remembered when looking for alternatives to WT, is that WT has had nearly a decade to get as big as it has. The only other tank game (that I know of) that has been around that long is WoT. Anything else is in the "catching up" phase. So even if it doesn't meet everything that WT does it can still be worth looking at if you are in it for the long haul.

  13. Proud patron of this project for quite some time now

  14. Its obviously pc only dont evan try wasting your time checking

  15. This looks promising, I just hope they add a mode, where the camera is locked to the positions of the crewmembers, such as War Thunders sim mode. I loved playing that game until Gaijin heavily reduced the availability of the sim servers.

  16. I came here from that poll you posted about people seeong your video.

    To be fair i didn't even think you would post anymore

  17. How convenient that this pops up in my feed. We just learned fire commands this week.

  18. Why don't you keep your streams up on the channel

  19. Combine this game with DCS, then you got yourself a true competitor.
    Now we just need something for WWII

  20. For just a vertical slice, this is great. I hope this turns out as both Multiplayer and no p2w. Maybe no paying at all.

  21. their game description sounds like an indirect shot at war thunder, and i love to see it

  22. Ground only I hope. Hate getting killed by planes when playing other tanks. The sites for the tanks need some work.

  23. Can someone link me the 15 cm slG 33 unicorn review pls? I cant find it…

  24. I wish I was able to support them on Patreon but I'm broke ☹

  25. the big problem in WT high tier are the maps and it is a multiplayer in means of people will exploit and will be toxic

  26. @Many_Miles_Away will it be one tank one player like warthunder or one tank more players like arma? And will the game feature aircraft/hellecopters (as targets)? Will there be destructible terrain (Trees, building exc-) ?

    The game looks realy interesting, mabye a cheaper option to steel beasts for us normies.

  27. GUNNER HEAT PC looks like it'll set a new standard for modern tank combat! For WW2, I really like playing Post Scriptum, which has highly realistic armored combat in a larger round.
