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 L14 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 14 Machine Gunner upgrade requires a blueprint that can only be purchased during Hardware Event Weeks in the Hardware Prize Store.

Join us in the #general discussion channel of our all new Thunder Run Discord Server this tonight at 9pm US Pacific Time (Saturday 4am GMT) for our very first community “Discord Dev AMA”.

Welcome to Season 15! 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?
It’s time to go long, Commanders! Long bomb inbound!
Amongst all the new training regimens recently made available to several of our top Infantry in the form of expanded level caps, an all new unit class has emerged, and is available now. Say hello to the Elite Mortarman!
The Elite Mortarman fields a powerfully-boosted Heavy Mortar to rain maximum damage upon Infantry, Turret Emplacements, and Armor units.
Improved warheads deal additional damage over time, shell-shocking vehicles and blinding infantry.
You see those damage numbers, Commander? You can just double that in your mental tally. These warheads have a napalm surprise for anything caught in the blast zone, and will burn your enemies to a crisp if they survive the initial impact. Any unit caught in the splash area experiences the same DPS on a 3-second fire damage over time effect, even if they were only in the fringe of the blast. That’s 6400 DPS for anything caught dead center. I hope your enemies have a good burn ward.
If you don’t obtain the L7 Blueprint before the ONP Event ends, you will be capped at L6 until the Blueprint returns. The Blueprint and Sub-components are cheaper to help out with this, and you will have enough time to unlock all seven levels before the event ends, so long as you crush your enemies and obtain ONP quickly.
If you miss out on the unlock, never fear. We will be fully unlocking the Elite Mortarman later this year for players who don’t complete the upgrades on time. Your technological edge will only last so long, so you’d better take advantage of it!

In addition to the updates made to the Elite M109 earlier this week, Gundar Arms Industries is also rolling out 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!

Join us in the #general discussion channel of our all new Thunder Run Discord Server this Friday, July 12th at 9pm US Pacific Time (Saturday 4am GMT) for our very first community “Discord Dev AMA”. What does “AMA” stand for you ask? It means “Ask Me Anything”, and we plan to let you the players do just do that.
This text based live chat is a great opportunity for you the players to connect with Thunder Run game developers and Community Support Team members to share your feedback about the game, and meet other dedicated players of the Battlehouse community. Looking for a new home for clan chat operations? Creating a private clan channel on our Discord server gives you the added benefits of voice chatting with your clanmates, and sending clan notifications across all devices (including mobile)!
Please remain civil and respectful at all times. Any bad behavior that violates our Discord Community rules, posted in the #rules channel, may be punished with a permanent ban and removal of your comments.
We invite you to ask the deep and hard hitting questions relevant to the whole game community. But note, this AMA is not intended to be a means of receiving instant answers to individual player support tickets. We will not be responding to reports about suspected cheaters, offensive chat disputes, or other account-specific questions that would be more appropriately handled in private by the Player Support team.
Try to ask concise, but clear questions. Huge blocks of text with several questions shoved into one may not be answered, nor will non-constructive comments such as “fix the game”.

Welcome to the Age of the Elite M109. Effective today, the Elite M109 has been granted the following list of buffs and improvements:
Major stat boosts to Damage, HP, and Blast Radius.
An added “Impact” effect, which you may recognize from the Elite TOS-1A.
Both research and build have been reduced, now repairing more quickly than an Elite TOS-1A.
The Elite TOS-1A will still be considered the King of the Motor Pool for most, but the Elite M109 is here to remind us that it’s not going down without a fight. See for yourself with the updated stats screenshot:
Stay tuned for more updates to the Elite M109A7 coming soon!
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.
Upgrade now to take advantage of significantly improved stats, and no increase in unit space!
The Level 14 Mortarman upgrade requires a blueprint that can only be purchased during Hardware Event Weeks in the Hardware Prize Store.
