    • I think my game has a glitch i have unloaded everything i have on the tank. The tank wont explode or can i get to phase 2 of the battle. He even doesn't walk any faster.

    • Does anyone have problem with first boss fight with nemesis. I unloaded everything I have on the tank. Like 9 grenades, 20 shotgun bullets etc. It won't explode. Is there trick to it?
