Awesome Tanks 2 is a single player Shoot 'Em Up game by Miniclip. It follows the game Awesome Tanks.


The game has 15 levels, each one is unlocked by completing the previous level.

Each level has its own map and number of enemies. A level is completed when all enemies and their bases are destroyed. A destroyed enemy releases coins that can be collected, but uncollected coins disappear after a while.


  • WASD/Arrows: moving
  • Mouse: aiming
  • Left mouse button: shooting
  • Upper number row/Mouse scroll/Q/E: switching weapons
  • R:[1] drop mines


There are several objects in levels that can be destroyed:

  • Wall blocks- walls that can be destroyed by shooting them.
  • Explosive barrel- explodes and damage all things in radius.
  • Bonus crates- smaller boxes, that by destroying them reveal their content. They can contain either a bonus, a bomb or a small enemy.
  • Concrete wall- can`t be destroyed, around the game edge.
  • Cracked concert wall-a concrete wall with almost unnoticeable cracks. Break it open to find some bonus crates. Only in some levels.


Bonus crates can contain the following bonuses:

  • Health boost - Regains a small fraction of your health
  • Enemy freezer - looks like a blue gem and freezes enemies for 5 seconds.
  • Money - Amounts ranging from $400-$1000
  • Ammo - Regains a small amount of ammo for a weapon- will not regain ammo for mines (see the icons for what ammo it is regaining)
  • Bomb (explodes like an explosive barrel but larger radius and less damage and longer fuse time)
  • Small enemy - the highest enemy of the level downsized excluding turrets and bosses - These small enemies have lower health and damages than the regular tank (There is a very small chance of getting this bonus)


There are 3 types of enemies: tanks, bosses, and turrets. Tanks move around and fire at you are close enough or you fire at them. If you move out of fire range, the tanks will stop pursuing you and firing. Turrets are like tanks, but they are stationary and have much higher health. Bosses are regular tanks with extra armor, health, and damage as well as an increased fire rate. Here is a list of types of tanks and if they spawn in tank, turret, or boss form:
