Update 9.21 Patch Notes

Vehicle Customization System

  • The interface of the customization system was completely reworked.
  • Rental and permanent styles (that completely change the vehicle exterior) can be applied to Tier X vehicles and Tier VIII Premium vehicles. An entire style can be rented; separate customization elements are not available for rental.
  • The Rental styles can be rented for a particular number of battles (instead of days). The rental styles are available for vehicles of all tiers.
  • Paints can be applied to Tier X vehicles and Tier VIII Premium vehicles. Paints can be applied to 4 or 5 vehicle components (some vehicles do not have gun mantlets).
  • Camouflage patterns are now applied to three vehicle parts (for all vehicles). The camouflage stains can be scaled and the base color of some camouflage patterns can be changed. Important: To receive the concealment bonus, apply camouflage at least to the vehicle hull. If no camouflage is applied to the vehicle hull, no concealment bonus is provided.
  • The weathering effect (to make your vehicle look from sleek to aged) can be applied to Tier X vehicles and Tier VIII Premium vehicles. Low graphical settings may impede the quality of the effect!
  • Both historical and non-historical customization elements are available to players.
  • Display of the non-historical customization elements (for other players) can be disabled in the game settings.
