New this week in Thunder Run:

UH-60 Blackhawk L6 Stats

The UH-60 Blackhawk L6 Stats Blueprint is now available in the Event Prizes store, allowing you to upgrade the Blackhawk’s Health, Damage, Mine Defense, and Blast Defense stats to Level 6. Unlock the blueprint as part of this week’s ONP Event by spending ONP in the Event Prizes store!

Skywatch Company Strike Teams

Skywatch Company is ready to roll out, Commander. These boys delight in making sure nothing else can roll out. Three squads are ready to deploy to your Ambush Points. You can now upgrade your Ambush Point to allow you to field Vanguard, Roadblock, and Skywatch Companies at the same time.

  • Able Squad fields eight Rifleman and three Panzerschrecks, plus an addtional Panzerschreck if you field the entire company.
  • Bravo Squad’s spotters field seven Panzerschrecks and three Snipers, plus an additional Sniper if you field the entire company.
  • Charlie Squad’s logistics team fields eight Snipers and three Panzerschrecks, plus an MQ-8B spotter drone if you field the entire company.

Don’t forget, your Strike Teams get stronger as you upgrade their component units. Be sure to take advantage of the recent level 13 unit blueprints in the Hardware Store for a considerable strength boost.

TR: Level 13 M109 Paladin, Level 11 AH-64 Apache, and more! – February 28th Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

Changes to Infantry & Ground Units On Water Terrain

RIP “Stinger Jesus”

Following the release of the UH-60 Blackhawk last week, we’ve been hearing reports of air cavalry getting stuck on water, and some (like the infamous “Stinger Jesus” pictured above) have even been walking on water to pursue their attackers. It’s a miracle I tell you!

Time to put the miracles to rest, however – at least for now. As of today, all infantry placed on water tiles will be subject to crossing paths with the fearsome man eating sharks of Gundar’s oceans (in the case of infantry), or will sink (in the case of armor vehicles). Careful around those shores, Commander!

Tomorrow: UH-60 Blackhawk Battle Replay Contest

Keep an eye out for more information coming in tomorrow regarding an all new UH-60 Blackhawk Battle Replay Contest where you and your clan mates can win huge prizes… Including never before seen unreleased unit payload equips for the UH-60 Blackhawk.

Check back on this space in about 24 hours from now for more information!

Good hunting, Commanders!

TR: New UH-60 Blackhawk Unit, Roadblock Company Strike Teams – February 21st Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

New UH-60 Blackhawk Unit

Air Cavalry, mount up! The UH-60 Blackhawk is ready for deployment, Commander. This tough troop transport is a capable anti-infantry gunship in its own right, but it can also deploy a variety of ground troops to smash through whatever defensive strategy the enemy deploys. The troop compartment does need repairs between deployments, but our grease monkeys assure us that they can handle it. Obtain all the necessary sub-component blueprints before the ONP Event ends. But beware. When they’re gone, they’re gone.

  • Press the ‘E’ key to deploy your troops at the time and place of your choosing. They’ll still deploy if the Blackhawk is shot down, but will suffer a 50% hit point penalty.
  • All UH-60 Blackhawks deploy Riflemen, and deploy Elite Riflemen at level 15.
  • Buy air-dropped troops to supplement the UH-60’s payload. An equip with four Machine Gunners is given for free when you first unlock the unit.
  • Unlock Level 6 before the event week ends, or be capped at Level 5! The blueprint and sub-component are cheaper to help out with this.
  • You will have enough time to unlock all five levels before the event ends, so long as you crush your enemies and obtain ONP quickly.

Be wary, Commander! Intel reports that the enemy is already fielding UH-60 Blackhawks at several of their bases!

Roadblock Company Strike Teams

Roadblock Company is ready to roll out, Commander. These boys delight in making sure nothing else can roll out. Three squads are ready to deploy to your Ambush Points. You can now upgrade your Ambush Point to allow you to field Vanguard Company and Roadblock Company at the same time.

  • Able Squad fields six Machine Gunners and five Panzerschrecks, plus a sixth Panzerschreck if you field the entire company.
  • Bravo Squad’s spotters field six Panzerschrecks and five Mortarmen, plus an MQ-8B spotter drone if you field the entire company.
  • Charlie Squad’s logistics team fields eight Panzerschrecks and three Riflemen, plus a GPW if you field the entire company.

Don’t forget, your Strike Teams get stronger as you upgrade their component units. Be sure to take advantage of the recent level 13 unit blueprints in the Hardware Store for a considerable strength boost.

Good hunting, Commanders!

TR: Known Issue – ‘Ambush Point Limit’ Upgrades

ISSUE RESOLVED: Ambush Point Limits are now upgradeable in the “Ambushes” tab within the “Unlock & Upgrade” menu of the Weapons Lab.

Right now in Thunder Run:

Hello Commanders,

We are aware of an issue with today’s Ambush Point and Strike Teams release that is preventing some of you from upgrading your ‘Ambush Point Limit’ above Level 1. The Weapons Lab is supposed to contain a new Ambushes tab that should be giving you all access to the Ambush Point Limit upgrades.

The team is actively working towards a fix, and we hope to get things working for you all very soon. Thanks in advance for your patience, and good hunting!

Looking for some help on how to place an Ambush Point and assign your first Strike Team? Check out this demo on our YouTube channel that walks you through the process:

TR: Ambush Points & Strike Teams, New L2 Unit Equips – February 7th Patch Notes

New this week in Thunder Run:

Ambush Points & Strike Teams

Ever hear of a spider hole, Commander? Some of your troops had the bright idea to–get this–dig a hole in the ground and ambush incoming enemy troops. The engineers rigged a way to hook some of these into our command and control system, so now we can deploy Strike Teams to perimeter points around our base. As it turns out, it isn’t expensive to dig a hole in the ground. Ambush Point Blueprints are available in the Event Prizes Store for only 1000ONP.

  • Ambush Points are similar to landmines. Build them, then click “View Stats” to add a “Strike Team” equip to the equipment slot.
  • Like landmines, the number of Ambush Points you can build can be raised by researching techs in the Weapons Lab.
  • Strike Teams can be purchased in the store. Currently, only Vanguard Company, an anti-infantry specialist team, is available for 1000ONP per squad.
  • Unlike mines, Strike Teams are not destroyed when the Ambush Point triggers. Buy once and they stay put.
  • Strike Teams are persistent. If an attacker retreats, they’ll stick around for the next fight.

More teams will be released in the near future and we’re considering other unit mixes. Is there a particular dream team you’d like to see in the field? Let us know over on Clan HQ.

New Level 2 Unit Equipment

Gundar Arms Industries has officially unveiled new weapons technologies for several popular units, and 3 new sets are now available by purchasing Level 1 sets in the ONP Store and combining parts to make Level 2 sets!

Set #1 – Gaz Tigr:

  • Gaz Tigr Laser Sights II – Improved Laser Sight technology that increases range by 5%
  • Gaz Tigr Ballistic Armor MK II – Improved armor coating that reduces damage taken by 10%
  • Gaz Tigr AP Ammunition II – The newest grade armor-piercing ammunition that increases damage by 10%

Set #2 – Mi-24D Hind:

  • Mi-24D Hind Laser Sights II – Laser homing technology that increases range by 5%
  • Mi-24D Hind Ballistic Armor MK II – Improved armor coating reduces damage taken by 10%
  • Mi-24D Hind AP Ammunition II – The newest grade armor-piercing ammunition that increases damage by 10%

Set #3 – OH-58 Kiowa:

  • OH-58 Kiowa Laser Sights II – Laser homing technology that increases range by 5%
  • OH-58 Kiowa Ballistic Armor MK II – Improved armor coating reduces damage taken by 10%
  • OH-58 Kiowa AP Ammunition II – The newest grade armor-piercing ammunition that increases damage by 10%

Check your Weapons Factory -> Equipment menu to get started upgrading unit equipment to L2. Just like L2 leaders, this process requires obtaining a second copy of the L1 item to perform the upgrade. L1 unit equipment is available as usual in the Store -> Event Prizes -> Unit Equipment menu.

Still require additional help? Check out this guide that walks you through the process.



L13 Rifleman Improvements

Newly recruited L13 Infantry rejoice! After careful consideration of overall unit usage combined with player feedback from the Battlehouse community, the L13 Rifleman build times have been decreased effective immediately.

Good hunting, Commanders!
