New this week in Thunder Run:

Blast Defense Upgrades

All blueprint-based units now feature an upgradable Blast Shield that reduces damage from most splash weapons, including Mortar Emplacements and units like the TOS-1A.

To get started, open the Research menu for any blueprint-based unit, and upgrade the Blast Shield stat.

This new research requires Hardware and maxes out at 7% damage reduction (with more levels planned for the future).

To see exactly which weapons this new Blast Shield protects you against, check for the “Blast” icon under “Weapon Type” on unit and turret Upgrade menus.

This icon means that the unit or turret deals “Blast” damage and is therefore affected by your upgraded Blast Shields.

Good hunting, Commanders!
