TR: The Security Network, Firestorm Security System, and Level 13 AH-64 Apache – May 9th Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

The Security Network

๐Ÿ‘€ Beware, Commanders! Big Brother is watching. ๐Ÿ‘€

The Security Network is now live, and The Firestorm System is officially the first of many new surveillance systems now available for installation.

What is a Security Network System?

These special targeting cameras find weak points on enemy units, creating boosts for nearby defending units. Install cameras to your Tactical Ops Center, Warehouse, Reserves Bay, Weapons Lab, Leader Academy, Leader Barracks, Transmitter, Academy, Barracks, Maintenance Bay, Motor Pool, Maintenance Hangar, and Airfield for maximum defense.

Purchase the Firestorm System in the Hardware Event Store, and Equip them to the above mentioned buildings by opening up the Building Upgrade menu. Once equipped, the Firestorm System will provide a Damage boost to friendly units within 100 yards of each equipped building. Deploy the entire system to extend the boost range to 150 yards. (note: boosts from overlapping buildings do not add. When in range of multiple buildings equipped with Security Network items, units will receive the single maximum boost amount).

More Security Network Systems will be rolling out over the next several weeks that will allow you boost your defenders’ Armor and Range. This is part of a continued ongoing effort to help boost player base defense capability. That said, AI enemies will not be receiving these upgrades for now.

Level 13 AH-64 Apache

The Level 13 AH-64 Apache is here!

As with the recent unit level cap releases, your Level 13 AH-64 Apache will also feature improved stats and no increases in battalion space requirements. As with any improvement in power, there are increases in cost, production time, and repair time.

The Level 13 AH-64 Apache upgrades require 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 more core units going forward.

Good hunting, Commanders!

TR: AH-1 Cobra Strike Squadrons, Elite Nimr L6+ Stat Mod Blueprint Bug Fixes – May 2nd Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

AH-1 Cobra Strike Squadrons

Get ready to light up more alert beacons, Commander! The AH-1 Cobra Strike Squadrons are here. These reserve AH-1s will give the enemy a nasty surprise. Deploy up to two AH-1 Strike Squadrons to your Ambush Points!

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

Even if the enemy retreats, the deployed AH-1s 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 Event Prize Store to purchase your AH-1 Cobra Strike Squadron blueprints, and 2 AH-1 Cobra Strike Squad units today!

Elite Nimr L6+ Stat Mod Blueprint Bug Fixes

In the previous ONP Event, there was a bug that was causing the Elite Nimr L6+ Stat Mod Blueprints to not appear in the ONP Store as intended.

The bug is now fixed, the blueprints are now available, and the store menu has been cleaned up for easier browsing by dividing L6+ Stat Mod Blueprints into three separate store menu sections for Infantry, Armor, and Aircraft.

Good hunting, Commanders!

TR: Regional Map Entry Requirements Update

Today in Thunder Run:

Regional Map Entry Requirements Update

In an effort to better teach incoming new players about the regional map, and welcome them to the map sooner in their Thunder Run journeys: New players can now access the regional map and deploy battalions as early as TOC L2, by upgrading the Reserves Bay to L2.

Please note that effective today, Reserves Bay L3 or higher is now required in order to deploy a full 10 battalions to the map. Commanders with an L2 Reserves Bay will only be able to deploy a maximum of 2 battalions to the map until they’re able to upgrade to L3.

Thunder Run Veterans, rest assured: these changes will have no effect on Commanders who already have a Reserves Bay L3 or higher.

Good hunting, Commanders!

TR: Welcome to Season 14! OH-58 Kiowa Strike Squadrons, Warehouse Upgrades – April 4th Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

Welcome to Season 14!

Welcome to Season 14! 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?

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

Warehouse Upgrades


Following the release of the various new types of blueprints, unit equipment sets, strike teams, and strike squads now available: our Quatermaster has been in a quandary trying to figure out how he’s going to fit everything in storage. Fear not, Commanders! Upgrades to the Warehouse are here.

  • Warehouse hit points have been tripled at all levels with no changes to repair times.
  • Warehouse Levels 5 – 12 now contain two additional inventory slots.
  • Warehouse Level 13 now contains six additional inventory slots.
  • Warehouse Levels 2 – 12 now cost less supply and fuel to construct.
  • Warehouse Levels 5 – 12 will take longer to build than before (L5 now takes as long as the previous L6, L6 takes as long as the previous L7, all the way up to L12). This change has no effect on the Level 13 Warehouse.

We have been observing all of the Community’s great feedback, and we hear you loud and clear! As such, we’re considering several additional Warehouse improvements to make unlocking more inventory space easier, while granting more control over item sorting. While we don’t yet have a date set for the next batch of Warehouse upgrades, more information will be coming soon.

Have feedback to share about this week’s releases? Let us know over on Clan HQ.

Good hunting, Commanders!
