*'''Enemy of armour''': Plasma-cutter cannons are exceptionally effective against vehicles or anything made of metal, and must have been created solely for that purpose. The weapons are tuned to a special frequency that causes only light burns to unprotected skin, possibly for the Tankbusters' own protection.

*'''Life in a spider-hole''': Being able to drop underground almost instantly is part of what makes Tankbusters so dangerous, since a tank cannot so much as crush one of these men in this state. While burrowed, Tankbusters are well-protected against most weapons, though they cannot retaliate either.

*'''A heavy burden''': The bulk of Tankbusters' equipment, including those wide-brimmed hats, means their firepower can only be brought to bear directly ahead. Consequently and ironically, standard frontline infantry are proving to be the most capable at neutralising these threats.

Tankbuster divisions seem to be composed of men selected for their stocky stature, strength, bravery, and astute perception. They appear to be trained in the use of a variety of unique, heavy-duty equipment, especially their state-of-the-art MX-19 ''"Muramasa"'' personal plasma-cutter cannons--which can melt foot-thick steel in seconds.

What's more, these extremely dangerous weapons are only half the package, as Tankbusters also are fitted with special protective headgear with a unique purpose: Plasma beams from the brim of these wide-brimmed hats may shoot straight down to cut a man-sized hole in any surface, effectively letting tankbusters burrow underground on a whim and with but a twist of their torsos. A mask also deploys onto the Tankbuster's face, allowing him to breath underground for as long as needed.

This sunburst headgear also serves as sort of a manhole cover until the tankbuster chooses to exit the burrow. The purpose of this burrow became extremely apparent the first time a Tankbuster squad was caught on surveillance: When one unlucky armour column unexpectedly ran into a Tankbuster ambush, the vehicles moved to crush these men in desperation, even as the Tankbusters began tearing them apart.
