Combat: Tank

Combat’s classic tank mode is an adversarial game where prediction, and positioning are key.

The players move around the map. When your opponent is hit by your bullet, you score a point. Note that your opponent gets blasted through obstacles when it is hit, potentially putting it in a good position to hit you back.

Whenever you score a point, you are rewarded +1 and your opponent is penalized -1.

Environment parameters

Some environment parameters are common to all Atari environments and are described in the base Atari documentation.

Parameters specific to combat-tank are

combat_tank.env(has_maze=False, is_invisible=False, billiard_hit=False)

has_maze: Set to true to have the map be a maze instead of an open field

is_invisible: If true, tanks are invisible unless they are firing or are running into a wall.

billiard_hit: If true, bullets bounce off walls, in fact, like billiards, they only count if they hit the opponent’s tank after bouncing off a wall.
