New this week in Days of Valor:

Elite AH-64 Unit Improvements

Fly high, Commander! The grease monkeys of Gundar have spruced up one our favorite Elite birds with some highly desired performance improvements and equipment additions. Here’s what’s new:

  • Unit can now attack both air and ground. Rival flyers beware!
  • Unit’s “firing arc” has been increased from 5 to 15. This means that it’ll be able to attack a wider area without having to turn.
  • Speaking of turning: the unit’s turn rate has also been given a boost.
  • Unit’s rate of fire increased from one shot every 1.75 seconds to one shot per second.
  • Attacks now do splash damage.
  • Hit Points have been significantly increased.
  • Hardware build cost has been reduced.
  • Hardware research cost has been reduced.
  • Build and repair times have been reduced.
  • Unit’s missiles received some visual updates.
  • And the kicker? The ONP cost for the Elite AH-64 Blueprint has been reduced by 10% in the Event Prizes Store, so get’em while they’re hot!
New max level stats for the Elite AH-64
