Who says special forces are the only ones with the cool toys? Your regular troops have been hitting the gym and the firing range with gusto, Commander. Your Riflemen report that they’re ready for some advanced assignments.
Significantly improved stats!
No increase in unit space!
The Level 13 Rifleman upgrade requires a blueprint that can only be purchased during Hardware Event Weeks in the Hardware Prize Store. This is the first of a series of catch-up mechanic boosts we’ll be giving to our core units.
Anti-Infantry Mine Buff
Commander, our base defenses have always had difficulty standing up to massed enemy units. There’s a long, hard road ahead of us to reach a level playing field, but our engineers have boosted the Anti-Infantry Mine’s effectiveness.
Starting at level 11, mine damage, trigger range, and blast radius have all received a major upgrade. I’d like to see the enemy crawl through our defenses when their legs have been blown off… on second thought, I think I’d rather not see that…
Level 11-16 Anti-Infantry Mine trigger ranges have all been boosted by 10%
Level 11-16 Anti-Infantry Mine splash radius has been boosted by 5% across the board.
Level 11-16 Anti-Infantry Mine damage levels have been adjusted to compete with elite infantry available at equivalent TOC and research research building levels.
The Level 11 Anti-Infantry Mine requires aLevel 5 TOC and a Level 10 Weapons Lab. The Level 16 Anti-Air Mine requires TOC level 10 TOC and a Level 13 Weapons Lab. Your workers are standing by, Commander.
Welcome to Season 8! Going into the new season, all Leaderboards and PvP Points are reset, meaning that it’s a fresh start for YOUR Clan to be the new the dominating Clan of Gundar, and win the Seasonal Clan Tournament Grand Prize of 10,000 Gold for your Clan at the end of the Season in 3 months from now. Does your Clan have what it takes?
Here’s a familiar face that’s had a little work done. Engineers from the United Arab Emirates took everyone’s favorite Russian armored vehicle and released a scaled-down version optimized for desert combat. The Nimr, popular across North Africa, has landed on Gundar. Armed with a TOW Missile Launcher and some serious speed, this vehicle is perfect for taking out those infamous armored artillery units. Think you can handle the Nimr’s lightning speed?
Your drivers may be tempted to go drag racing in the desert. Check the mileage when they get home. The already-speedy Nimr gains a 15% speed buff when fighting on desert maps. This boost does not apply to battalion travel speed.
The Nimr is equipped with a variable ordinance missile launcher. Currently it can only load anti-tank missiles, but with some modification it may eventually be able to launch anti-air missiles as well… Maybe it needs a coat of red paint.
Heavy armor-piercing ammunition – this stuff blasts right through buildings without detonating and only scorches the eyebrows of enemy infantry, but will completely gut a heavy armored vehicle. Make sure to bring escorts if your Nimrs will face infantry.
To start building Nimrs, upgrade your Maintenance Bay to Level 8 and purchase the blueprints during the Scorpion ONP Event.
Updates to MG Turrets
We have such an abundance of heavy machine gun ammunition that your MG Turret gunners have been instructed to “spray ‘n pray”. They’re going to start shooting at targets much further out than before, though they will not score as many hits until the enemy is inside their previous target radius.
All MG Turrets have had their previous range converted to an effective range. This means they will score 100% damage at their old range, and will do partial damage out to the new, longer maximum range.
All MG Turrets now have a maximum range that is 25% higher than their effective range. Damage falls off linearly from 100% at the effective range to 0% at the new maximum range.
To celebrate, we’ve discounted the L11-12 Machine Gun Turret Blueprint down to 15,000 ONP for this week only. If you haven’t upgraded your towers before, now’s a great time to start!
Updates to Barriers
We’ve been tinkering with our barrier setups, Commander. One of our engineers came up with a new concrete recipe using local mineral deposits, so our HESCO Barriers are much tougher than they were before. They should stand up much better to most weapons.
All barriers have had their hit points significantly increased.
Sappers and Truck Bombs do increased damage against barriers.
Level 15 barriers are now available for TOC level 10+
Elite AH-64 L1 Unit Equipment
Gundar Arms Industries is rolling out a new set of Unit Equipment for the Elite AH-64, available this week on the front page of the Event Prizes Store:

Elite AH-64 Ammunition I – The newest grade armor-piercing ammunition increases damage by +7%
Welcome to Season 8, Commander! Time to get building.
Well, Commander, it seems your enemies are a little too eager to fly the unfriendly skies. With so many powerful gunships buzzing around, it’s getting so that everyone in your base has to duck and cover more often than not. Not to worry, your engineers have been hard at work boosting the Anti-Air Mine’s effectiveness.
Starting at level 11, mine damage, trigger range, and blast radius have all received a major upgrade. Only the toughest enemy choppers can survive a direct hit from a Level 16 mine, and they’ll be damaged enough that our towers will make quick work of them.
Level 11-16 Anti-Air Mine trigger rangeshave all been boosted by 10%.
Level 11-16 Anti-Air Mine splash radius has been boosted by 5% across the board.
Level 11-16 Anti-Air Mine damage levels have been adjusted to compete with helicopters available at equivalent TOC and research building levels.
The Level 11 Anti-Air Mine requires aLevel 5 TOC and a Level 10 Weapons Lab. The Level 16 Anti-Air Mine requires Level 10 TOC and a Level 14 Weapons Lab. Your workers are standing by, Commander.

The Apache Longbow is yesterday’s news. Say hello to the Elite AH-64F Guardian, with the longest range of any chopper on Gundar and the speed to outrun anything but the AH-1Z Viper. Think your pilots can handle this bird? Step on up.
Perfect for hit and run attacks. Take advantage of it’s special turret jamming rounds to suppress defenses, and then sweep up the battlefield uncontested with your armor or infantry. Siege mode engaged!

A new elite infantry unit, The Elite Machine Gunner, can now be deployed in your battalions. Your grunts are going to love this kit, Commander. They’ll probably forego leave just to get a chance to rack up some range hours.
New features include:
Higher rate of fire and the ability to attack air targets. Choppers beware!
New explosive ammunition: point it downrange, watch the world burn.
Land Warrior derived aiming assistance: better range means more hits.

The Days of Valor Community has spoken, and we hear you loud and clear! The vast majority of you enjoy the new unit models that dastardly General Bischoff brought with him into Gundar at the start of Season 7, but some of you have been having some trouble telling some of the new World World War II inspired unit models apart from one another.
In response to all the good Community Feedback we’ve received over these last few weeks, updated unit models are now available for 2 of the most popular previously released WWII unit models: the M4 Mortar, and the Panzerwerfer, along with both of their Elite counterparts.
Your architects have been hard at work, Commander. In addition to a sharply-worded requisition order for more coffee, they’ve delivered blueprints for the next Tactical Ops Center expansion. It seems like only yesterday we were huddled together in tents.
Tick-Tock! The TOC now upgrades to Level 11, unlocking a variety of new upgrades for your military forces!
New features include:
Increased level cap on your resource production and storage facilities.
Enables increased level cap on Howitzer, C-RAM, HEL, FASCAM, and Quadmount turret mounts. Available in the store now!
Enables increased level cap on infantry research and production buildings. Coming soon!
Enables increased level cap on aircraft research and production buildings. Coming soon!
You’ll need a lot of resources to upgrade your Tactical Operations Center to level 11. Better beef up your security teams so your enemies don’t sniff around for easy prey.
We’ll be sure to caffeinate your architects for you, Commander. That requisition order was just shy of a death threat.
A new elite heavy armor unit, the Elite M12 GMC, can now be deployed in your battalions. Can you stop General Bischoff and Stenzer in this week’s onslaught, as they continue to attempt to take over all the modern-technology we know and love in Gundar? Let’s turn their WWII-era technology against them, and send them back to 1945 where they belong. Here’s what you can expect from the “new” Elite M12 GMC:
Fastest artillery unit available. Buckle up!
Highly maneuverable. Stay just ahead of direct combat units and rain death across the battlefield.
Improved rate of fire and improved range.
Upgrade your Maintenance Bay to Level 11, and then look for Elite M12 GMC Blueprints in the Event Prizes Store as part of this week’s Valkyrie ONP Event!
