The World of Tanks kicked off a massive game event – Steel Hunter. These are new game mechanics and exciting battles, as well as the opportunity to learn the mysterious history of the secret German military base. The event runs from August 26, 12:00 (Moscow time) to September 16, 4:00 (Moscow time). Ceasefire 4: 00-7: 00 (Moscow time).
The fighting takes place on the territory of a secret German military base, where research was carried out to develop unique weapons – automated systems for the creation and restoration of military equipment.
You are waiting for a test in which in the event “Steel Hunter” everyone is for himself. In battle, 20 (when playing solo) or 21 players (when playing in a platoon of three people) participate. Loners fight only against loners, platoons – against platoons. The maximum duration of the battle is 15 minutes. The battle takes place on the huge city map “Zone 404” measuring 2×2 km. The main goal is to survive at all costs. To reach it, collect trophies located on the map and timely leave the danger zones. At the end of the battle, only one player or platoon will remain. And may the strongest win!
The map is gradually narrowing, leaving less and less space for battle and survival. Before closing, the location sector is marked in orange – this is a signal to leave it as soon as possible. When a sector is closed, it is indicated in red and a countdown timer appears. If your car is in this sector when the countdown is over, it will begin to gradually lose strength points until it is destroyed.

- Improve the tank directly in battle;
