TR: Landmine Improvements – December 13th Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

Landmine Improvements

You’d think digging a hole in the ground and tossing in a bomb was an easy task, but linking our mines to our command and control systems has always proven a little difficult. Fortunately, our engineers have managed to squeeze more minefields into our network, and have improved the power of our anti heavy-armor mines. Shall I give the order to start building?

Updates Include:

  • Minefield limit raised by 2.
  • Anti Heavy Armor Mine level cap raised to 10.

If you already have Level 5 Anti Heavy Armor Mines, you can start upgrading to Level 6 right away. Level 7 requires a Level 7 Weapons Lab. The new minefield size limit requires a Level 14 Weapon Factory.

Good hunting, Commanders!

TR: L13 Machine Gunner – December 6th, 2018

New this week in Thunder Run:

Level 13 Machine Gunner

Your infantry are following the lead set by your Riflemen. Now it’s your Machine Gunners who are reporting for duty with some improved toys and honed skills. Duck and cover, Gundar!

As with the Riflemen and Mortarmen, your L13 Machine Gunners will feature improved stats and no increase in battalion space requirements. As with any improvement in power, there is an increase in cost, production time, and repair time.

The Level 13 Machine Gunner upgrade requires a blueprint that can only be purchased during Hardware Event Weeks in the Hardware Prize Store. We will continue to release similar levels in this catch-up mechanic boost to our core units.

TR: Turret Limit Increase – November 29th Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

Turret Limit Increase

I hope you participated in the land grab, Commander, because our architects report that they are ready to deploy more turrets than before. Naturally, we’ll be boosting our generator capacity too to keep up with demand.

Updates Include:

  • Max number of Turret Emplacements increased by 4.
  • Turret head type limits increased by 1 for each type (applies to blueprint-based turret heads and the TOW)
  • Generator max level is raised to L19 to support the power requirements for extra turrets

To take advantage of these new limits, upgrade your TOC to level 11 and start building!

TR: Level 13 Mortarmen, Hot Black Friday Sales Coming Soon – November 22nd Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

Level 13 Mortarmen

Your infantry are following the lead set by your Riflemen. Now it’s your Mortarmen who are reporting for duty with some improved toys and honed skills. Duck and cover, Gundar! There’s even some talk that a few of these Mortarmen might be aiming for the title of “Elite”, but they aren’t quite there yet.

As with the Riflemen, your L13 Mortarmen will feature improved stats and no increase in battalion space requirements. As with any improvement in power, there is an increase in cost, production time, and repair time.

The Level 13 Mortarman upgrade requires a blueprint that can only be purchased during Hardware Event Weeks in the Hardware Prize Store. We will continue to release similar levels in this catch-up mechanic boost to our core units.

Hot Black Friday Sales Coming Soon

Check back after Thanksgiving for some hot Black Friday Sales in-game! Available for a limited time only. Good hunting, Commanders!

TR: L11-L16 Anti-Infantry Mine Buffs – October 25th Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

Anti-Infantry Mine Buffs

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…

Stats Breakdown:

  • 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.
