The Frosted Battle Mobile is an enemy in the Duke Nukem 3D expansion pack Duke: Nuclear Winter. It replaces the Pig Cop Tank, and is essentially just a sprite change of it.

It is first encountered in the first level of Nuclear Winter, Deja Vu. It is just as durable and deadly as the Pig Cop Tank.

Description Edit

It functions in exactly the same way as the Pig Cop Tank. It will take a lot of damage just like its counterpart. It is armed with two guns (which inflict the same damage as the four cannons on the Pig Cop Tank). It will fire lasers at long distances and it also has mortars. Even though it doesn't have a self-destruct button at the rear, as the Pig Cop Tank does, the self-destruct mechanism still exists, meaning that the player can still hit the back of it and make it self-destruct. This feature makes it even more apparent that it is nothing more than the Pig Cop Tank with different sprites. The only real difference between it and the Pig Cop Tank, aside from its appearance, is that the driver is a Snowman and this enemy is the one sometimes dropped when it is destroyed (and not a Pig Cop).

Appearance Edit

It is basically a Snowmobile with weapons. A Snowman can be seen driving it.

Its first and primary weapon are the Side Guns, which fire fast barrages of lasers. Its secondary weapon is the long-range Mortar Launcher, which fires a grenade that deals a large amount of damage. It nearly always uses its primary weapon, the Side Guns, and rarely uses its secondary weapon.

Like the Pig Cop Tank, the player can destroy it by going to the back of it and pressing the back of it, and though it is clearly a Pig Cop Tank with different sprites, it makes no sense why the player should be able to do this since there isn't a button or anything for the player to press. After hitting the back of it, a countdown of a couple of seconds is initiated, accompanied by frantic beeping. The Frosted Battle Mobile will then explode, regardless of any damage it may have taken beforehand. This explosion deals some damage. Sometimes when the Frosted Battle Mobile is destroyed, it will eject a Snowman at full health.

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, despite the fact that there doesn't appear to be anything for the player to press to trigger the detonation.
  • The Frosted Battle Mobile only appears to have two side guns, but they inflict the same damage as the four side guns on the Pig Cop Tank.
