During this Challenge, the only main weapon that players are allowed to use are weapons that come with the Crab Tank special weapon. If a player tries to play the Challenge with a weapon that does not have the Crab Tank, they can cancel or select an owned weapon that does; other weapons are grayed out. This is the only Challenge of that type, where the special gauge charge will not be affected. The walking speed when moving sideways will be increased. When the Challenge is played, only primary abilities are enabled, so secondary abilities have no effect.
