World of Tanks: Brace Yourselves for the Return of the Waffenträger!

4 min read

A grand return to World of Tanks! From September 27 through October 11, the special Return of the Waffenträger event will take place in World of Tanks.

This autumn, the Harrier Squad will once again face Max von Krieger’s engineering marvel in a formidable and uncompromising battle for domination. Last year, the outstanding Engineer made a tactical retreat. Now he’s back, and this time, von Krieger will be revealing to the world his improved war machine, the menacing Blitzträger auf E 110. It’s even more dangerous and unpredictable than before, so get ready for fiercer, intensified battles!

On the other side of this epic confrontation, the Harriers haven’t wasted any time, either. Joining their ranks are three different vehicles, each with its own combat role and unique abilities. It’s up to you to decide which side to fight on—and may the strongest win!

Return of the Waffenträger: General Setup

  • Battles take place in the 7v1 format on one of three lightly redesigned maps: Murovanka, Siegfried Line, and Steppes.
  • Before the battle starts, you can choose one of the sides in the conflict.
    • A team of seven random players or a Platoon of up to three players (the Harrier Squad) rush into battle in extensively modified special vehicles: the Object 140, Bat.-Châtillon 25 t, and M48A5 Patton. Dynamic Platoons are allowed.
    • The Engineer faces them in the Blitzträger auf E 110, an incredibly powerful tank destroyer manned by a single player. He’ll be flanked by guards in the form of AI-controlled Sentinels, the third type of vehicle you will spot in the mode.
  • Each team has its own objective. The Harrier Squad must disable the Blitzträger auf E 110’s protective energy shield and destroy this menacing vehicle within the allotted time. The Blitzträger auf E 110 must eliminate the Harrier Squad or hold out until time expires.
  • To enter the battle in the Blitzträger auf E 110, you need to have a Key. You can earn it in battles while playing the game mode or receive it as a part of special bundles in the Premium Shop. Keep reading to find out about one more way to get one Key for the Blitzträger auf E 110!
  • The Return of the Waffenträger progression involves assembling the Harriers’ Collection and the Engineer’s Collection with different elements and consists of four Stages. Upon collecting a certain number of elements and reaching each Stage, you will receive valuable rewards. To fill the event progression meter and grab all rewards available in the event, you need to complete both Collections.
  • The event’s main reward is the ASTRON Rex 105 mm, a brand-new Tier VIII Premium American medium tank, which can be obtained from the Vehicle Gate with a certain drop chance.
  • You can also purchase it with the Engineer’s Starters, special in-game keys you can earn during the event to activate the Engineer’s Gate which contains valuable loot. The Engineer’s Starters will also be available as part of bundles in the Premium Shop.
  • You can also use the Harriers’ Starters to activate the Harriers’ Gate, which might drop useful in-game items—sometimes even the Engineer’s Starters!

he Harriers’ Battle Hounds

On September 27, you will find three special vehicles to choose from in the event Garage. Choose one of the tanks and click the “Battle!” button to start your exciting combat journey!

Each Harriers’ battle hound features its own battle purpose and general and unique abilities:

  • Resistor (the  XObject 140 ) is a versatile tank with mid-range characteristics that can perform any role on the battlefield.
  • Thunderbolt (the  XM48A5 Patton ) is a slow but sturdy assault tank with impressive firepower and thick armour.
  • Foudre (the  XBat.-Châtillon 25 t ) is a highly mobile vehicle featuring a powerful gun with an autoloader, but it pays for these positive traits with its poor survivability.

The Harriers have three Lives (including the one you start with), which means they can respawn twice in a single battle.

The Blitzträger auf E 110

To fight in the mighty and powerful Blitzträger auf E 110, you need a Key. There are three ways to get it:

  1. Complete a special mission in Random Battles to earn one Key. The mission will be available at the start of the event on September 27 at 11:00 CEST (UTC+2) and will remain active until October 4 at 11:00 CEST (UTC+2).
  2. You can also earn Keys by completing special Harriers’ missions in the event.
  3. Keys will also be available as part of bundles in the Premium Shop during the event.

There will be no compensation for unused Keys when the event ends on October 11 at 11:00 CEST (UTC+2).

The Blitzträger auf E 110 is a formidable tank destroyer with overwhelming firepower. Designed by Max von Krieger, this incredible feat of engineering is equipped with a gun with an autoloading mechanism. One penetrating shot can easily take away well over half of a Harrier vehicle’s entire HP pool. Plus, the Blitzträger auf E 110 features four additional (three active and one passive) combat abilities.

AI-controlled Sentinels are autonomous guards that spawn across the map. Their role is to deal damage to the Harriers and act as spotters for the Blitzträger.
