Invite a Friend - and receive a reward!

Playing War Thunder alone is fun, but having people to squad up with and work in a team is even better! This is why War Thunder has a special invitation (referral) system, which allows you to easily invite a friend to the game, granting rewards both to the invited player (the referral) and you (the referrer). As your invited friend progresses through the game, you will be awarded with Silver Lions and, most importantly, Golden Eagles, the premium currency of War Thunder - and there are no limits to the numbers of people you can invite!

How can I invite a friend through the referral system?

To make use of the War Thunder referral system, just click on ‘Invite Friend’ in the game’s main menu. This will open the following window:

Here you are presented with your personal referral link, which is also automatically copied to your clipboard, meaning that you can easily paste it anywhere, e.g. by using the CTRL + V keys if you are on a Windows PC.

Give this referral link to your friends or share it on your Social Medias like YouTube and Facebook - for which you can also use the Facebook button on the in-game window. There is also a button to automatically generate an email with your referral link, which you can then send through your favorite email program.

Are there any limitations to how many people I can invite?

No! You can invite as many people as you want, and you will receive rewards for each and every one  of them.

What rewards can I get for inviting friends?

The player invited by you (referral) will receive 50  just for registering the game through your link.

For each invited player you will receive:

  • 70 000  Silver Lions as soon as your friend reaches rank II in any nation!
  • 500  Golden Eagles as soon as your friend reaches rank III in any nation!
  • 2500  Golden Eagles as soon as your friend reaches rank V in any nation!
  • If ten players invited by you reach rank III in any nation, you will receive a unique additional crew slot for every nation!

Note : Purchasing premium vehicles is not equal to the automatic acquisition of the corresponding rank. The purchasing of helicopters does not affect progress in the referral system.
