DV: OH-58 Kiowa Strike Squadrons – March 21st Patch Notes

New this week in Days of Valor:

OH-58 Kiowa Strike Squadrons

Commander, we can now place alert beacons on some of our Ambush Points to call in our Kiowa Strike Squadrons. These reserve OH-58s will give the enemy a nasty surprise. Our surveyors have found room for a few more Ambush Points to accommodate our new reserves.

  • Ambush Point limit raised by two. You will need to research the next Ambush Point quantity tech to unlock the extras spots.
  • Deploy up to two OH-58 Kiowa Strike Squadrons to your Ambush Points.

OH-58 Kiowa Strike Squadrons can be upgraded in your Weapons Lab. At Level 1, three OH-58s deploy when the Ambush Point is triggered. You can currently research up to Level 5, which will result in seven OH-58s deploying when the Ambush Point is triggered.

Even if the enemy retreats, the deployed OH-58s will remain until destroyed or you return to repair your base. Don’t forget, Strike Team and Strike Squadron units benefit from equips and unit levels.

Head to the Menace Event ONP Prize store to purchase your OH-58 Kiowa Strike Squadron blueprints, and 2 OH-58 Kiowa Strike Squad units today!

UH-60 Blackhawk Airdrop Troops

Also available now in the Menace Event ONP Prize store:

Collect all new Airdrop Troop sets for all of your favorite infantry units. In addition to the Riflemen and Machine Gunners that are already available, the Mortarman, Javelin Gunner, Sniper, Sapper, Combat Engineer, and Stinger Gunner are joining the fray. Collect ’em all so that your enemy will never know what’s coming!

Good hunting, Commanders!

Changes to Infantry & Ground Units On Water Terrain

RIP “Stinger Jesus”

Following the release of the UH-60 Blackhawk a couple weeks ago, we’ve been hearing reports of air cavalry getting stuck on water, and some (like the infamous “Stinger Jesus” pictured above) have even been walking on water to pursue their attackers. It’s a miracle I tell you!

Time to put the miracles to rest, however – at least for now. As of today, all infantry placed on water tiles will be subject to crossing paths with the fearsome man eating sharks of Gundar’s oceans (in the case of infantry), or will sink (in the case of armor vehicles).

Careful around those shores, Commander! And good hunting!

DV: New UH-60 Blackhawk L6 Stats, Skywatch Company Strike Teams – February 21st Patch Notes

New this week in Days of Valor:

Skywatch Company Strike Teams

Skywatch Company is ready to roll out, Commander. These boys delight in making sure nothing else can roll out. Three squads are ready to deploy to your Ambush Points. You can now upgrade your Ambush Point to allow you to field Vanguard, Roadblock, and Skywatch Companies at the same time.

  • Able Squad fields eight Rifleman and three Panzerschrecks, plus an addtional Panzerschreck if you field the entire company.
  • Bravo Squad’s spotters field seven Panzerschrecks and three Snipers, plus an additional Sniper if you field the entire company.
  • Charlie Squad’s logistics team fields eight Snipers and three Panzerschrecks, plus an MQ-8B spotter drone if you field the entire company.

Don’t forget, your Strike Teams get stronger as you upgrade their component units. Be sure to take advantage of the recent level 13 unit blueprints in the Hardware Store for a considerable strength boost.

DV: New UH-60 Blackhawk Unit, Roadblock Company Strike Teams, L2 Unit Equips, and more! – February 7th Patch Notes

New this week in Days of Valor:

New UH-60 Blackhawk Unit

Air Cavalry, mount up! The UH-60 Blackhawk is ready for deployment, Commander. This tough troop transport is a capable anti-infantry gunship in its own right, but it can also deploy a variety of ground troops to smash through whatever defensive strategy the enemy deploys. The troop compartment does need repairs between deployments, but our grease monkeys assure us that they can handle it. Obtain all the necessary sub-component blueprints before the ONP Event ends. But beware. When they’re gone, they’re gone.

  • Press the ‘E’ key to deploy your troops at the time and place of your choosing. They’ll still deploy if the Blackhawk is shot down, but will suffer a 50% hit point penalty.
  • All UH-60 Blackhawks deploy Riflemen, and deploy Elite Riflemen at level 15.
  • Buy air-dropped troops to supplement the UH-60’s payload. An equip with four Machine Gunners is given for free when you first unlock the unit.
  • Unlock Level 6 before the event week ends, or be capped at Level 5! The blueprint and sub-component are cheaper to help out with this.
  • You will have enough time to unlock all five levels before the event ends, so long as you crush your enemies and obtain ONP quickly.

Be wary, Commander! Intel reports that the enemy is already fielding UH-60 Blackhawks at several of their bases!

Roadblock Company Strike Teams

Roadblock Company is ready to roll out, Commander. These boys delight in making sure nothing else can roll out. Three squads are ready to deploy to your Ambush Points. You can now upgrade your Ambush Point to allow you to field Vanguard Company and Roadblock Company at the same time.

  • Able Squad fields six Machine Gunners and five Panzerschrecks, plus a sixth Panzerschreck if you field the entire company.
  • Bravo Squad’s spotters field six Panzerschrecks and five Mortarmen, plus an MQ-8B spotter drone if you field the entire company.
  • Charlie Squad’s logistics team fields eight Panzerschrecks and three Riflemen, plus a GPW if you field the entire company.

Don’t forget, your Strike Teams get stronger as you upgrade their component units. Be sure to take advantage of the recent level 13 unit blueprints in the Hardware Store for a considerable strength boost.

New Level 2 Unit Equipment

Gundar Arms Industries has officially unveiled new weapons technologies for several popular units, and 3 new sets are now available by purchasing Level 1 sets in the ONP Store and combining parts to make Level 2 sets!

Set #1 – Adler Kfz:

  • Adler Kfz Laser Sights II – Improved Laser Sight technology that increases range by 5%
  • Adler Kfz Ballistic Armor MK II – Improved armor coating that reduces damage taken by 10%
  • Adler Kfz AP Ammunition II – The newest grade armor-piercing ammunition that increases damage by 10%

Set #2 – Mi-24D Hind:

  • Mi-24D Hind Laser Sights II – Laser homing technology that increases range by 5%
  • Mi-24D Hind Ballistic Armor MK II – Improved armor coating reduces damage taken by 10%
  • Mi-24D Hind AP Ammunition II – The newest grade armor-piercing ammunition that increases damage by 10%

Set #3 – OH-58 Kiowa:

  • OH-58 Kiowa Laser Sights II – Laser homing technology that increases range by 5%
  • OH-58 Kiowa Ballistic Armor MK II – Improved armor coating reduces damage taken by 10%
  • OH-58 Kiowa AP Ammunition II – The newest grade armor-piercing ammunition that increases damage by 10%

Check your Weapons Factory -> Equipment menu to get started upgrading unit equipment to L2. Just like L2 leaders, this process requires obtaining a second copy of the L1 item to perform the upgrade. L1 unit equipment is available as usual in the Store -> Event Prizes -> Unit Equipment menu.

Still require additional help? Check out this guide that walks you through the process.



L13 Rifleman Improvements

Newly recruited L13 Infantry rejoice! After careful consideration of overall unit usage combined with player feedback from the Battlehouse community, the L13 Rifleman build times have been decreased effective immediately.

DV: Ambush Points & Strike Teams – January 24th Patch Notes

New this week in Days of Valor:

Ambush Points & Strike Teams

Ever hear of a spider hole, Commander? Some of your troops had the bright idea to–get this–dig a hole in the ground and ambush incoming enemy troops. The engineers rigged a way to hook some of these into our command and control system, so now we can deploy Strike Teams to perimeter points around our base. As it turns out, it isn’t expensive to dig a hole in the ground. Ambush Point Blueprints are available in the Event Prizes Store for only 1000ONP.

  • Ambush Points are similar to landmines. Build them, then click “View Stats” to add a “Strike Team” equip to the equipment slot.
  • Like landmines, the number of Ambush Points you can build can be raised by researching techs in the Weapons Lab.
  • Strike Teams can be purchased in the store. Currently, only Vanguard Company, an anti-infantry specialist team, is available for 1000ONP per squad.
  • Unlike mines, Strike Teams are not destroyed when the Ambush Point triggers. Buy once and they stay put.
  • Strike Teams are persistent. If an attacker retreats, they’ll stick around for the next fight.

More teams will be released in the near future and we’re considering other unit mixes. Is there a particular dream team you’d like to see in the field? Let us know over on Clan HQ.

Good hunting, Commanders!

GPW Unit Improvements

Today the L13+ GPW Unit is receiving a range boost. Time for your GPW gunners to “spray ‘n pray”. They’re going to start shooting at targets further out than before, though they will not score as many hits until the enemy is inside their previous target radius.

This is similar to other recent improvements we made to Machine Gun Turrets. Do you like the “spray ‘n pray” machine gun firing method? Let us know your feedback over on Clan HQ.

Good hunting, Commanders!
