My mechanic and tank hijacker wont guard at all, even with ctrl+alt command

Asked by Jai


i have tried many ways to get my mechanic and hijacker to guard and repair or steal local tanks.
For the hijacker, i have tried this guide


having the hijacker have a parasite weapon works wel but even with 0% verses on anything thats not a tank, it could still enter buildings.
I am using ares and With the "vehiclethief=yes" fix it works much better than the old work arounds.
Removing the weapon and just using "vehiclethief=yes" works without and undesired issues other than he wont guard and steal nearby tanks that pass.

i have tried "GuardRange=" and "CanPassiveAquire=" but nothing seems to work.

I am having the same issue with my mechanic, he has the "repairbullet" weapon and it works fine but once again he will not guard and repair nearby tanks.

Please help!!

If your tank and mechanic aren't guarding as expected, check game controls, unit status, and seek solutions on official forums. Ensure the game is updated and consider reinstalling. Be cautious of mods or third-party software that might affect weapon functionality.
