New this week in Thunder Run:

Elite M1 Abrams

The grease-monkeys at Gundar Arms Industries have officially outdone themselves this time. Say hello to the Elite M1 Abrams: a monstrous new powerhouse elite unit reserved for only the ‘True Kings of Battle’. Do you have what it takes to prove that you’re the King of Kings?

Features Include:

  • Activate the turbo-chargers for “maximum overdrive”! Press the ‘E’ key to gain a 200% speed boost for 3 seconds. They have a 4 minute cooldown, so boost wisely! I wonder who would win in a drag race between the Elite Pershing and a Nimr?
  • At lower levels, this damage-soaking hunk of armor can rumble it’s way into a base, lure enemies to cluster around it, and then zoom out of range while your long-ranged support units send in barrages of area of effect fire.
  • At higher levels, it’s splash damage radius comes into play, so it can hammer clustered enemies with its own area of effect fire.

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. The Levels 1-6 unlocks will require a Level 13 Maintenance Bay, and upgrading to Level 7 after unlocking the final blueprint will require Maintenance Bay Level 14.

If you miss out on the unlock, never fear. We will be fully unlocking the Elite M1 Abrams 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!

Good hunting, Commanders!
