Out of all the weapons in the TM arsenal that one would expect to destroy a tree, why doesn't the ramdrill. You would expect a drill to cut down a tree, lets think of some reasons why it does not seem to be able to cut down TM trees.

Is all down to the clever electronics.

The TM-420 Ram drill has a multi-phasic cutting blade which is packed with biosensors.

This enables the drill to discriminate between organic and non-organic matter,
when organic matter is detected at the drill bit phases and so passes through the organic object with out doing any damage.

no no no... see, the drill is actually an energy weapon. multiple planes of energy projected for'ard. where they cross each other they reflect a small ammount of visible light, but where all the planes intersect is the point.

the point is where damage is done, so anything interacting with the space between the projector and the vertex is simply passing through thin air.

Well...the tanks are alive. They are considered artificial intelligence. According to the story line, they do go off and "play" with the other bot tanks...

hmm, TM as an RPG... that could be intresting lol Kinda hard though with a game like this i'd think.

(psst, there ramdrill isn't really a drill... its something that looks like a drill and shoots a tiny ball of **********DAMAGE********** out at the tip, anything not touching this is of course not damaged Trees can easily be killed but only if you get the ball inside the trunk*

Hey Guys,

If the RamDrill cant drill teeth then why is Dentist Printed on the side?.
Also, mrbig should'nt worry about not winning any games,I dont win any games but i still enjoy playing.

(The reason i dont win is cause i only got a 56k dial-up,so at least iv'e got an excuse!!!)

A ramdrill can chop down a tree. You just have to aim right - something you never learned, Coax

Remember that only the tip of the drill does any damage.
