In the Tank Biathlon four crews will enter the race and will strive to reach the finish line first! You need to pass the obstacle course: overpass, snake, water barrier, whilst hitting the target from the main calibre cannon and machine gun by shooting from the static position and while moving.
In the Sea Biathlon four commanders will join the course. On the way to the finish line you need to destroy various targets using main calibre cannons and torpedoes. Each destroyed target will activate a short boost. Use it to be the first to the finish line!
- Custom camos are available as coupons, which will be activated automatically on your account. Coupons can’t be exchanged or sold on the market.
- If you mistakenly assemble a coupon you already have, you are able to disassemble it to get ‘Vouchers for camo’ without any penalties. This option will be enabled until September 14th.
- You may receive a coupon for camo for the vehicle you haven’t researched yet. The new camo will become available after researching and purchasing the vehicle it belongs to.
- Unused ‘Vouchers for camo’ will be disabled on September 14th.
- You will be able to choose one nation’s camo from the actual Tank Biathlon show: Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Syria, Kirgizia, Armenia, or Serbia for the T-72B3 and T-80U. ZTZ96A only has the Chinese camo available.
