TR: Elite Machine Gunner L2 Unit Equipment, Level 30 Stinger Turret Upgrades, and more – January 21st Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

Elite Machine Gunner L2 Unit Equipment

Gundar Arms Industries is rolling out more upgradeable weapons technologies. Purchase more Level 1 equipment sets in the ONP Store, and combine the parts in the Weapons Factory to make all new Level 2 sets! This week the Elite Machine Gunners are getting some new gear.

  • Elite Machine Gunner Laser Sights II – AN/PEQ-2 IR Laser Sight technology that increases range by 5%
  • EliteMachine Gunner Ballistic Armor MK II – Improved kevlar that reduces damage taken by 10%
  • Elite Machine Gunner GMC AP Ammunition II – The newest grade armor-piercing ammunition that increases damage by 10%
  • Also adds set bonuses to give Elite Machine Gunners the 80% FASCAM shielding that the old shield equipment set had.

Stinger Turret Upgrades

Our engineers just had a breakthrough on our Stinger Turrets, and they can now be made stronger than ever. The Stinger Turret level cap has been increased to Level 30!

L30 Stinger Turret Stats

To unlock it, purchase the Stinger Turret Blueprints from the ONP Store, research the tech in your Weapons Lab, and then Equip the new Weapon to one of your Turret Platforms!

“Friends Bar” Changes

Due to the changes in the Facebook API, all friend recruitment quests haven’t been working as intended. We’ve decided to disable these quests. If you completed one of these quests, you should see an achievement in the Legacy category:

“Congrats on being such a friendly person!”

For all Facebook games: you will no longer see the friend bar if you have no Facebook friends in game. If you still have the friend bar, you will no longer be prompted or be able to add new friends, but you can still send & receives gifts to the friends that you already have.

  • Firestrike is not affected as it primarily uses the Battlehouse login system.
  • Thunder Run players using the Kongregate platform are not affected.
  • Battlefront Mars players using the Battlehouse login system are not affected.

In the future, we do plan on bringing back the “friends” bar, but more as a “clan bar.” We’re open to player feedback on how they’d like to see this implemented.

If you have any suggestions about this, or any general feedback you’d like to share, please let us know over on our Thunder Run Discord Server.

Please also let players know that longer term we plan to bring the “friends bar” back as a “clan bar”, and are open to player feedback on best ways to execute that.)

To see where the design team currently stands on various Community suggested features and game improvements, check out the Thunder Run Voice of the Commander Tracker (tracker will receive some clean-up and updates to formatting in the very near future).

We have some exciting news, announcements, and more waiting for you on our most recent edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog.

Good hunting, Commanders!

TR: Voice of the Commander Updates, BMP-1 and Elite BMP-1 updates – December 31st Patch Notes

This weekend in Thunder Run:

Voice of the Commander Updates

We’re celebrating with a quality-of-life update based on your player feedback that’s intended to address a few of the issues and suggestions that you’ve brought forth to us via the “Voice of the Commander” trackers. Don’t see the update you were hoping for in this week’s release? Fear not, as there is still plenty more to come.

Deactivate your mines

We have heard your feedback loud and clear, and now, it is possible to disable minefields.

You can now disable your minefields during single-player AI attacks if you wish. This will automatically remove itself if you log out, or can be removed any time you want by clicking the status indicator icon and choosing “Remove” or clicking “Manage” on any mine and then clicking “Enable Minefields”

“Disable minefield” (or “Enable” if currently disabled) button at the bottom
Status indicator when mines are disabled

Known issue: When building new mines, the “Disable/Enable mine” button overlaps with the progress bar. This will be fixed really soon.

BMP-1 and Elite BMP-1 Updates

In preparation for customizable loadouts that we’ll be rolling out in the near future, we’ve made small changes to the BMP-1 and Elite BMP-1 units.

Particularly, the BMP-1 will have its special troops default back to stock Riflemen, and the Elite BMP-1 units are defaulted to Elite Riflemen. The Elite BMP-1 has also been given a slight damage increase.

Some may see this as a nerf, but don’t fret, commander! Customizable loadouts are coming and it’ll be worth it!

Upgrade/Unlock mouse-wheel support

And that’s not all, Commander! We made some tweaks to the UI as well! Upgrade and unlock windows now support mouse-wheel scrolling. No more clicking on the arrows on the top left of those windows!

To see where the design team currently stands on various Community suggested features and game improvements, check out the Thunder Run Voice of the Commander Tracker.

We have some exciting news, announcements, and more waiting for you on our most recent edition of the Battlehouse Dev Blog.

Some players have pointed out that they were not getting the hardware bundle Christmas sale that started running last week. Our team has identified the issue and has pushed a hotfix that should fix it for all players within 24 hours.

Not only that, we’ll be extending the hardware bundle sale for one more week!

M4A1 Transport and Elite M4A1 Transport Updates

In preparation for customizable loadouts that we’ll be rolling out in the near future, we’ve made small changes to the M4A1 Transport and Elite M4A1 Transport units.
