The Frosted Battle Mobile is an enemy in the Duke Nukem 3D expansion pack Duke: Nuclear Winter replacing the Pig Cop Tank.

It is first encountered in the first level of Nuclear Winter, Deja Vu.

Description Edit

The Battle Mobile functions in exactly the same way apart from the cosmetic change and the driver.

It is armed with two machine guns, lasers for long distance, and mortar shells.

Even though it doesn't have a self-destruct button at the rear, as the Pig Cop Tank does, the mechanism still exists so the player can still hit the back of it to trigger the detonation.

The only real difference, between it and the Cop Tank, is that the driver is a Snowman, who'd often deploy after it is destroyed.

Appearance Edit

It is essentially an armed snowmobile with weapons driven by a Snowman.

Behaviour Edit

The snowmobile is a slow and heavily armored target and will mostly use its machine guns on Duke. Staying in front of it is ill-advised as the damage output is relatively the same when facing the Cop Tank as well being at risk of being shelled by the occasional mortar shell as it pours down a barrage of bullets.

While powerful, the Battle Mobile is slow on the turn and thus it finds difficulty in tracking a fast moving player whom can whirl around and strike the self-destruct sequence though this is a hazardous task at best. The self-destruct sequence is exactly the same and the driver will most certainly eject upon its destruction.

Trivia Edit

  • Even though the Frosted Battle Mobile is clearly a Pig Cop Tank with different sprites, the player can still make it self-destruct just like the Pig Cop Tank; Even if there is no visible way of triggering it.
  • Despite the fact that the snowmobile possess only frontal two machine guns, they inflict the same damage as the two turret guns found on the Cop Tank.
