Welcome to the special event "Tug of War"!

Do you remember how to use towing cable?
You better make sure, it will be useful in this challenge!

The main goal is to recover and evacuate a Gepard SPAA. The vehicle’s engine is out of service, so the only way to deliver it is to use the towing cable to drag it to your team’s zone. The enemy team will do everything to prevent you from doing it and towing is not an easy task on rough surfaces. If you want to be the one who achieves victory, you will need to choose a vehicle with a powerful engine and enough mass.

The main victory condition is that the enemy team should lose all its points. You can do this by delivering the “recovered” tank to the special zone for your team. As soon as the above named vehicle reaches the zone - your enemy will start to lose points.


  • Capture and hold the Gepard SPAA at your base.
  • A destroyed “disputed” SPAAG will reappear in the central zone after 10 seconds.
  • A team loses 500 points if one of its members is knocked out.
  • The longer the recovered SPAAG is in the evac zone the faster the enemies lose their points.
  • The towed Gepard is vulnerable and can be destroyed but for destroying it the team will receive a 2000 point penalty.
  • You may want to destroy the evacuated Gepard in a no-win situation, or when the “disputed” SPAAG is almost delivered to the enemy zone. By sacrificing some points, you can still create a chance of gaining victory.
  • Each team consists of 4 players.
  • You can respawn with all ground vehicles in your lineup.
