Strategies

Using Hurricane

Probably the best tactic is to reverse into your opponent using the lawnmower blades and triple spike combination, although the lawnmower blades aren't the most reliable of weapon, and reversing into your opponent if they have a flipper gives them a larger ground clearance to exploit. Hurricane's armour is fairly good, and the wedge shape means that if all else fails you could use it to get underneath and push enemies into arena obstacles.

Against Hurricane

Hurricane has no weapons on its front, so attacking this area is low-risk, and should lead to victory. Otherwise, flipping it, either using an active weapon, or even brute force (pushing into its front), will leave Hurricane defenseless, without a self-righting mechanism. Try to avoid taking damage from the blades at the rear, as the AI will usually turn to use these.
