New this week in Thunder Run:

November Force Security Teams

“Remember, remember, the 5th of November.” It’s not quite November yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t give an early warm welcome to the All New November Force Security Teams. We’ve been hearing your feedback loud and clear about wanting new Security Teams for more buildings, and the November Force Security Teams are here to do just that for your Turret Emplacements!

Equip SSG Morel and SSG Wales to your L10+ Turret Emplacements, and SSG Avery and SSG Wu to your L12+ Turret Emplacements. Equip all 4 teams to receive a boost in how many units your Security Team will deploy. Get your November Force Leaders now in the ONP Event Prizes Store!

Need more information on how to unlock and upgrade Security Team Leaders? Check out our “Leader Upgrades” video tutorial on the Battlehouse YouTube channel.

Levels 13-15 Elite AH-1Z

The grease monkeys of Gundar have another explosive unit update available this week in the form of expanded levels and other highly anticipated improvements for the Elite AH-1Z. Here’s what’s new:

  • Max level has been expanded from L12 to 15. Unlike most new max level increases for units, these upgrades won’t require any blueprints – just resources!
  • Significant improvements were made to the “hit box targeting” for the Elite AH-1Z’s Sidewinder Missiles (weapon that can be activated with the “E” key). Sidewinder warriors should take note: an enemy helicopter’s shadow is the actual target, but the hitbox area has been expanded so that you can also effectively target the helicopter itself. In addition, damage no longer drops off as a result of inaccurate targeting. If you hit the opposing helicopter anywhere, you get the full damage, period.

Expanded Turret Levels

And that’s not all, Commanders! Also available this week are expanded level blueprints for all turrets:

  • Blueprints to unlock Levels 29-30 for the MG Tower, Mortar, and TOW turret weapons are now available in the Event Prizes store.
  • Blueprints to unlock Levels 27-28 for the FASCAM, HEL Laser, C-RAM, M45 Quadmount, and Artillery turret weapons are also now available in the Event Prizes store.
